A selection of models from the magazine plus

At 18.01. published the first issue of the year-plus - packed with the most beautiful models from BurdaStyle and two completely new fashion spreads! We'll show you some highlights.

Spring Summer preview?

There are a few things I like in there. That being said, why do they have to style their photos so that you have absolutely no idea what the garments look like?



I couldn't tell you if I like this one or not. All I see is the fabric, not the dress.

I know what you mean. Most of them look like they have little shape to them. But there are a few pieces that look good.

The French magazine site has the technical drawings. Here is the link. Now you have a better idea of what the dress is like

Thanks for that link Pat. Now I know why they placed the model like they did. I don't that this dress would look good on anybody.

And that could be why they styled the model like that - knowing it would look like she was wearing a bag! I'm looking at it wondering how on earth you'd do a bca on this.
I know Burda plus has the bca built in, which is good, but still some folks need more.

Thanks for the link. I renewed my subscription last night. There is a jacket and pants that I like. I'm not at all sure about the bag dress or the asymmetrical top.

Thanks for the link, Pat. I was thinking of re-subbing to the Plus magazine only, but will wait to see the next issue. I just don't think I'd make anything in this one. Not that it's all bad, they just don't have anything in there that I don't already have something similar.

I'm REALLY not feeling these patterns at all! The colors are good, but I really cannot see how most of these would flatter any but the most well-proportioned of plus-sized women.
