The Daily Mail is today reporting that “Daisy Lowe has dropped a dress size in her quest for the perfect bikini body.” Now, we all know it’s not uncommon for models to lose a bit of weight before a campaign and especially before a swimwear campaign, but something about the DM’s article is a little off.

First off, the article is about Daisy’s new swimear range for high street store Peacocks – you’ll remember that earlier this year her mother Pearl designed a series of dresses for the budget fashion range, an Daisy modelled them. Speaking about her new line of swimwear, the only quote they have from Daisy says;

“‘The bikinis are cheap and cheerful and I’ve decided to model them myself,”

 She does not specify that she has lost weight from the campaign – now normally this by itself wouldn’t be that unusual, except that we all know Daisy Lowe is an advocate for curvier women on the catwalk, and I don’t mean in the Crystal “I’m a size 8… a plus size 8!” Renn sense here.

In the March issue of ASOS magazine, the model had the following to say about the continuous size war that clouds the fashion industy;

“My dream…[she says]…is to see a lot more female shapes in ad campagins when I look through magazines. It’s slightly moving that way. I love watching Lara Stone, she’s amazing, but my friend was working with Crystal Renn and said she think she’s only got a 38″ hip. Karl Lagerfeldsaid he was going to embrace her womanly shape and the he just put her face on the ad campaign. Girls are starting to have tits in pictures, but I think it still needs to be about the curve….. Real women have hips and an arse, yet loads of models in shows seem to have neither.”

Hm, it seems a little odd that they have no quote on that matter and one picture to accompany their story…. Could this be another example of tabloid tall tales I wonder?
