A group of plus-size models are showing that Kardashian glamour doesn’t rely on a specific body type as they recreate one of the famous family’s recent ad campaigns.
The Kardashian-Jenner girls featured last month in a photo campaign for the latest Calvin Klein Underwear line, as well as Calvin Klein Denim, which went typically viral.
The photo features Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kendall and Kylie – hiding her baby bump under a blanket – lying on the ground, all sporting white Calvin Klein underwear.
Making moves: A group of plus-size models recreated the Kardashian-Jenner Calvin Klein ad in order to prove that ‘all bodies are beautiful!’
Now, a group of plus-size models and body positivity advocates have recreated the image themselves to send a message to curvy women.
New York-based model Denise Mercedes, 26, posed for the images with Diana Sirokai, Daisy Christina, and Tammy B lying side-by-side in the same poses – albeit one girl down because ‘#SorryKylieWentToGiveBirth.’
In their photo, the ladies sport black versions of the underwear, copying the Kardashian sisters’ poses and showing off their curves in full.
In another image, the ladies pose up against a white wall with their arms over their heads and pulling Kardashian-worthy pouts.

Making it their own: Denise Mercedes, Diana Sirokai, Daisy Christina, and Tammy B (r-l) have gained tens of thousands of likes for the post
‘Allllll bodies are beautiful!!!’ Denise wrote on Instagram with her post from the shoot, while some of the other ladies made their own posts with the hashtag #CurvesForKlein.
Thousands of fans have liked the pictures as well as reached out with support and admiration for the ladies.
Denise’s post alone has been liked more than 20,000 times and several commenters have chimed in to say that they think the ladies’ version should be used by the brand.
The post even got some viewers excited for different reasons, with one asking where they could find the famous Calvins in plus sizes.
Standing tall: The other ladies also shared this photo from the shoot with the hashtag #CurvesForKlein
Making light: Body positivity advocate Denise Mercedes joked in her caption that #SorryKylieWentToGiveBirth
Past experience: Diana Sirokai (left) previously went viral for recreating Kim Kardashian’s white swimsuit photo
Sadly, that viewer was let down, with Denise responding: ‘They don’t have them in plus sizes. They just go up to extra large but they have really good stretch.’
It isn’t the first Kardashian-flavored shoot for one of the models, Diana Sirokai, who previously went viral for copying Kim’s famous white swimsuit picture.
The model posed in a one piece similar to one worn by reality TV star Kim, to illustrate her point that women of all different body types are beautiful.
Diana shared her picture side by side with Kim’s on Instagram, and said in her caption that both she and the star ‘slay’.
