Slink launched online last year, providing women, sizes 10 and up, with realistic fashion options and ideas. The UK-based site eventually evolved into a print magazine and is available for purchase now.
This magazine, made for a variety of “real” women, was created by Rivkie Baum, a former fashion design student who left the industry due to her frustrations with limited sizing, cutting-pattern levels and current fashion mags. She told the UK’s Daily Mail that she liked those publications, “but there was nothing for young women who are bigger. The only answer was for me to get smaller.”
In contrast to magazines like Vogue and others alike that boost size 0 models, Slink magazine gives tips on how to be fashionable and comfortable at any weight, providing tips on how to accentuate curves and pick clothing that best match your body type.
Slink will be published bi-monthly. The first print issue features former America’s Next Top Model winner, Whitney Thompson.
