Created to expand society’s limited notion of beauty by building awareness about women of every size and shape, Volup2 Mag is a “visual celebration of full-figured beauty, combined with a self-affirming message of inspiration.” Featuring the likes of Denise Bidot, Anna Scholz, Dirty Martini, Georgina Home, and one of my cuties- Gaelle, the debut issue of Volup2 launched on Valentine’s Day playing on the theme of Ecstasy!
