Plus-Size Blogger Asks 21 Countries to Make Her 'Beautiful' with Photoshop (and the Results Surprised Her)

Dec/16/2014 at 05:34 PM ET

Like journalists Esther Honing and Priscilla Yuki Wilson before her, 23-year-old Marie Southard Ospina asked strangers in different countries to Photoshop an untouched, barefaced portrait of her to reflect how they defined beauty. What makes Ospina’s story different? She’s a plus-size blogger.

“I was so fascinated by these women’s work that I became increasingly curious as to how editors would treat a photo of me if asked to edit it, what with my chubby cheeks, double chin, thick shoulders and chest and rounder, fuller face,” the Colombian-American wrote in a blog post for Bustle.com “What would they do with these traits?”

We Tried It: Rent the Runway's Plus-Size Selection

Dec/11/2014 at 06:22 PM ET

Who tried it: Rosaliz Jimenez, Photo Director (and a size 16)

What is it: The luxe fashion rental giant Rent The Runway has expanded their Plus options! Dresses are available in sizes 14W-22W from top-notch designers like Badgley Mischka, Kay Unger, Anna Scholz, and exclusively from the likes of Carmen Marc Valvo, Monique Lhuillier, Eva Franco and Yoana Baraschi. Prices range from $30 to $175 for a 4 day rental. RTR offers two ways to rent their wares: online or via their storefronts (located in N.Y.C., Washington, D.C. and Las Vegas). I tried both methods — for research purposes, of course!

Why I did it: Finding occasion dresses in plus sizes can be frustrating. Most options available in stores make me look like I just stepped out of an episode of the Golden Girls or like I’m about to audition to be a backup dancer for a Miley Cyrus video. Neither is good. So when RTR invited me to try on their collection, I jumped at the chance.

Level of difficulty: Easy!
