K. L. Belvin - A Man In Transition



1. What do you find attractive about plus size women

Great question. What is there not to be attracted to? I love the size of a plus size woman. I think its incredibly sexy. I have never been attracted to a woman smaller than a size 14. The sweet and sensual look to a thick belly and thighs, a broad back and shoulders are extremely sexy to me. I love the way a thick woman walks and how everything moves as she does. The large and ample breast of a rubenesque woman would make any man’s mouth water. I would be amiss, if I didn’t mention the hips, those thick full beautiful hips; this is the moniker of full figured women. This is why being married to a full figured model is like living with an angel.

2. Have you always been attracted to plus size women

Oh yes! As long as I can remember its been full size or nothing. I loved Nell Carter, Chaka Kahn, the late and great Phyllis Hyman and Vesta Williams. I was in love with Martha Wash from the weather girls.

3. At what age did you realize that you were attracted to plus size women?

I was 10 years old when I had my first full-figured crush. It was the friend of my cousin's mom.

4. When you found out that you were attracted to plus size women did you admitted it right away or did you hide it from others?

Please, did I admit right away? Yes of course. I have always been a leader and out front guy. I am going to like who I am with. I want to make sure everyone knows it. I don’t believe in hiding someone you care about. Plus, I find plus size woman so attractive, it blows my mind when men say they are not attracted to plus size women. I know it’s all lies, how could you not be. One thing I have come to notice is when you have a big girl on your arm, everything around you seems a tad bit sexier.

5. What advice if any would you give a plus size women looking for a man that will appreciate and love her for herself?

Another great question; I would say this to any sister of size, LOVE EVERY INCH OF WHO YOU ARE. There are men who love you just as you are. Don’t lower your personal bar to please anyone. Walk with a sense of comfort in yourself. Make a man prove his worth to you. Don’t let society steal your worth. Love the You God made. Wake up each day and embrace every sexy thick curve you have been blessed with. Make your man do the same. If he doesn’t embrace your size as a gift from God, leave him. Finally, don’t try to alter your body if you’re unhappy. Surgery is only an answer if your health is in jeopardy. if it’s not, then take your time and work on your health not your size. It will even out as you're getting into whatever healthy regimen you adhere too. Just don’t get too small, the brothers like me would be very upset. Thank You for allowing me to share my thoughts to God’s greatest creation, Thick women.

Glen L Johnson - A Real Southern Gentlemen



1. What do you find attractive about plus size women?


To be honest it took me years to be able to answer that question. For lack of better words I just like the bigness of a plus size woman. Having something to hold on to is a good thing to me it makes me feel good to know that the person I am holding does not feel like she is going to break. Of course in typical guy fashion I like boobs, butt, hips, and a great smile.




2. Have you always been attracted to plus size women


Yes. In all of my years of dating and almost 20 years of marriage I have only been with two women who would not be considered plus size. Back to the previous answer there is nothing like the bigness of a plus size woman to get my juices flowing.



3. At what age did you realize that you were attracted to plus size women?


I think I have always been attracted to larger women but I think it came to a head when I was twenty-two living in Houston, TX. It amazed me at the size of ladies and how great they looked. I found myself in a few embarrassing situations looking at ladies as they walked by.



4. When you found out that you were attracted to plus size women did you admitted it right away or did you hid it from others?


At the time I was living in Texas and eventually working in the construction industry in which guys talk about ladies all the time. I would talk about how I liked larger women and though at first I got teased eventually they left me alone when they realized the teasing would to no good. Additionally, I started to see some of the same guys that would only date smaller women start to date plus size women.



5.What advise if any would you give a plus size women looking for a man that will appreciate and love her for herself?


Believe him when he tells you that he loves you just the way you are. The quickest way to get rid of a man that loves big women is to lose weight. Unless you have a significant amount of history with him to get beyond the surface items your size is what attracted him your intellect and attitude is what will keep him. Additionally, though you may be plus size do not let that be what defines you.

Glen L Johnson is the voice behind Full Figure Plus. At 45 years old living in Little Rock, Arkansas Glen is a full time blogger making a living from a medium he did not know existed before October of 2004. Glens' goal is to provide a male perspective to the world of plus size fashion.



Named one of The 40 Best Plus Size Fashion Blogs Full Figure Plus has allowed Glen the opportunity to be a part of historic events like the JMS Style Symposium, Full Figured Fashion Week™ in New York, and Full Figured Fashion Week(end)™ in Los Angeles.



Additionally, Glen graduated with honors from Ashford University in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Organizational Management. In 2011 he earned an MBA with an entrepreneurship specialization. Academic honors include the dean’s list, a member of Alpha Sigma Lambda, and the Golden Key International Honor Society.





The success of Full Figure Plus lead to the official launching of Full Figure Network, Inc. a parent company with several projects in the works to further promote activities within the plus community. With thousands of monthly visitors from 158 countries viewing millions of pages Glen works hard to not only show the best in plus fashion but keep readers up to date on the most relevant issues affecting the plus size community.


A quick glimpse of my story:


For years my bride to be was having a problem finding a bra and panty set. Being at the time a size 42H it was impossible to find a decent bra through normal channels. We would spend at times sixty dollars or more on a single bra with no matching panty to go with it. Being the nosey guy that I am I struck out to search the Internet to find affordable lingerie for the one that I love. After a few months of cataloging links from every category imaginable, including lingerie I would occasionally share the links with others. I then read a business article about blogging and made the decision to combine the shopping links and my own unique voice with this new platform, and thus in the Fall of 2004 Full Figure Plus a blog dedicated to plus size fashion and more was born. What started out as a hobby now serves over 60,000 monthly visitors and a source of income for my family.


I hope this has given you a nice glimpse into my world and how blogging has changed my life forever. If your plus size or better still a plus size blogger I would love to hear from you about different sites you frequent or your experiences as a blogger. Feel free to contact me at anytime at owner@fullfigureplus.com.

Jean JNESS Nerestant - Creative and Blessed


1. What do you find attractive about plus size women?


The first thing that holds my attention is her silhouette. As an artist my
eyes automatically strategize the way I would draw her, and the outline is very important to the drawing.


2. Have you always been attracted to plus size women?


I remember being attracted to a plus size girl as far back as grade school. Her older brother went to the school too, so she was completely off limits.


3. At what age did you realize that you were attracted to plus size women?


I was 11 when I realized it wasn't just the girl in grade school that caught my eye, but I was too young to really understand. At that age it seemed like everything you thought, was deemed wrong by your parents.


4. When you found out that you were attracted to plus size women did you admit it right away or did you hide it from others?


I hid it for years, the bad part was the girls I were attracted to I made fun of because that was acceptable to my circle of friends. To a teenager, seeming normal and fitting in are very important things. I made fun of one particular girl in high school. By the time I realized that the way of the crowd wasn't my way, I approached her with how I really felt... It was too late, she let me have it. Ever since then I have worked diligently to not be part of the crowd. I admitted it to my friends, but it wasn't until years later that I actually entered a relationship with a plus size woman.


5. What advice if any would you give a plus size woman looking for a man that will appreciate and love her for herself?


My advice is beware of guys that are too into your size. You want to be the object of someone's affection not the focus of their fetish. I believe a guy who is into you won't make your size the main topic of discussion every time you talk to him. My friends never walked over to a girl and said, "Um you're so beautiful and thin". It's OK for him to have a preference, but it shouldn't be his main focus.

Kevin Buist - Smart Sexy & Single



1. What do you find attractive about plus size women?

All the qualities I like in women that aren't plus size. It's more about the character and personality of the woman. If she's fun, intelligent, loves herself and the person she is, believes she can make a difference, and is God-fearing....then I'll be attracted. Her size isn't a factor. Sexy comes in all shapes and sizes.



2. Have you always been attracted to plus size women?

I wasn't raised to see size. There's all types of women in my family and they're all shapes and sizes. I don't care about big little short or tall.....if you carry yourself in a way that attracts me, I'm attracted.


3. At what age did you realize that you were attracted to plus size women?

When I first started liking girls around age 5 the size didn't matter.


4. When you found out that you were attracted to plus size women did you admitted it right away or did you hid it from others?

I told whoever wanted to listen. I don't have the same hang-ups that society has. Plus I could care less about what people think!....I do what I do with whom I choose for my reasons. No one else is involved in that formula.

5.What advise if any would you give a plus size women looking for a man that will appreciate and love her for herself?

Just be who you are. You'll find each other. Remember to first love yourself because society is wacked. The proof....look what's in today. They say pork is the new white meat, black is the new white, bad means good. Soon fat will be the new skinny!

William Keeby - Tall Dark & SINGLE




1. What do you find attractive about plus size women?



1. I have rarely date a skinny woman. I love women of all sizes but I definitely love curveaous ones more. I find that you can hug a plus size woman and see there grace and beauty. I like a woman that reminds me of the strong women in my family. Most in my family are plus size. Thick thighs ,full lips, and thick hips are all attractive qualities. Secondly I have never met a plus size woman who didn't know how to enjoy themselves and was not the life of the party.

2. Have you always been attracted to plus size women.


2. Yes I have always been attracted to plus size women. My first girl was plus sized and very confident.


3. At what age did you realize that you were attracted to plus size women?

3. I have always been attracted to plus size women. I was always around plus size women. My aunts grandmothers and mom are all plus size.


4. When you found out that you were attracted to plus size women did you admitted it right away or did you hid it from others?.


4. I never hide who I liked. I was a free spirit who just saw a person I liked not their size.


5.What advise if any would you give a plus size women looking for a man that will appreciate and love her for herself?


5. My advice to any women plus sized or otherwise is this choose wisely. Get to know the person rather then get caught up in the looks and how they treat you. If you have never met his family or friends then find someone else because he isn't going to do right by you. If he doesn't look you in the eyes when he tells you how he feels about you then he maybe gaming you. Please first and foremost love yourself because self esteem is the most important part to having a relationship. You can't allow someone else to love you if you don't love yourself first. Lastly dress in what makes you feel good. A real man will always see your beautiful no matter what you wear.


Stay positive .
