Big girl bombshell Beth Ditto has already made us swoon with her songs and her sass, but now she’s going to conquer a business that has typically seemed a little small minded for a lady like her- fashion. Known for her outtasight onstage getups made of metallic spandex and her tasty Tracey Turnblad-esque print dresses, everyone has been taking notice of the lead singer of The Gossips’ bold personal style and sense of self- especially Lisa Marie Peacock. The head designer of Evans’, a plus size chain store in the UK, is reportedly canoodling with the saucy singer about rocking her look for the clothing line. Set to debut this June, it sounds like Beth’s got big plans to wrap the whole world in gold lamé! But even more than the news of her desire to dress us up in her love is the fact that she’s among a growing crop of cuties with a bootie getting noticed for all their assets. Empowering people of all sizes makes every lady look and feel her best. So, in honor of the women who are showing the range of size stardom can come in, here are the Frisky’s favorite Plus Size Pin Ups:
