Busty Role Model: Marina Diamandis

Coming of age as a busty young woman can be daunting. As I have already discussed, young women with ample bosoms are put in an unfair position. They are seen as inherently too sexy, and then criticized for either embracing or hiding that beauty. They are portrayed in media as either slutty, dumb, or cruel, and sometimes all three. While curves are held up as man’s truest weakness, we don’t see many examples of busty women as strong leaders. That is why I want a series of posts highlighting strong women who young girls can look up to, and who are stacked to boot!

Today’s Busty Role Model: Marina Diamandis!

Marina is better known by her stage name, Marina and the Diamonds. She got a lot of international recognition for her 2012 album Electra Heart and she is now touring her new album Froot. Marina is a pop star with an independent streak. She writes catchy dance tunes with more meaningful lyrics than one usually expects. She openly discusses the struggle of balancing her desire for success with her need to be true to herself. Basically, she kicks ass. But what I find truly impressive, is that at no point have her ample breasts overshadowed her personality in the promotion of her music.

Now, I have never tried to become a pop star, and I don’t work in music promotion, but I have watched enough music videos and television performances where the camera zooms in on a woman’s body part to know that objectification is a key part of marketing pop stars. And yet, Marina, who’s ta-tas are most definitely worthy of that attention, has managed to avoid that objectification. If you do a Google image search, you will find almost no images that highlight the size of her breasts. This is an incredible achievement! I have not been anywhere near this successful keeping my breasts out of the public eye. My high school yearbook had a full page photo looking down the front of my prom dress, and I have never even seen a paparazzi photographer!

The clothes Marina wears are also really impressive. I have often limited my style options because of my breasts. I dismissed styles outright, sticking to classic shapes and angled lines. But Marina is bold. Surely she hires a team of tailors to customize her dresses and body suits. Still, I was surprised to see her rocking crop tops and bandeau bras. It forced me to rethink the fashion rules I had made for myself, which I think is really healthy.

Of course, Marina hasn’t always been a star. If you look at her earlier music videos, you can see some familiar busty girl fashion mistakes, such as wearing a dress that reveals your bra under your arms. I find these videos endearing. She is one of us! And now she is a respected musician who has mastered both her representation in the media and dressing herself in flattering ways! We can do it too!

I have created a playlists of some of Marina’s music and interviews. I hope you agree that she is a busty lady worth looking up to.

If you have a busty role model you think I should highlight, let me know in the comments. I want to write more of these.
