Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Big Brooklyn Style is a reality series that promotes a plus-size designer and her clothing boutique, but also contains positive messages about being self-confident and fashionable no matter what size you are. There are some references to bras and nipples, and occasional comments about going out on dates or cocktails. Occasionally, customers briefly discuss their feelings about being plus-sized women. It's pretty lighthearted and positive, and teens and adults interested in this sort of thing may find their fashion sense heightened by what they see here.
Is It Any Good?
The lighthearted series offers lots of styling tips for full-figured women, ranging from what kinds of colors and prints they should wear to the various ways a dress that is well-proportioned to their bodies can be worn. Dolan also reveals some of the specific tailoring details that should go into creating clothing for fuller-figured women in order to make them fit right.
It's definitely a promotional vehicle for Dolan's clothing designs as well as her boutique. But if you can look past this, you will also find a show that is trying to empower full-figured women to feel comfortable in their own skin. It also sends the message that women of all shapes and sizes have the right to be fashion forward and feel beautiful.
