      So while she is on her weight-loss journey she should wear sackcloth and ashes and hide herself away abi? RME

    I prefer the slimmer look
    I love Taje but this isn’t flattering
    Not flattering at all

    Lovely designs. I like the way you showcased a plus sized lady wearing similar outfits to thesize 0 model. All of them can be easily rocked. Great photos by the way.

    I love everything they put on Taje, ladies just because a brand makes clothes for plus size women doesnt mean you should stay plus size try to decrease if you can. The skinny girl is too skinny someone get her some pounded yam!

    • Vanessa

      If that girl is too skinny, then my goal is to be too skinny too. Please don’t hate, she might not be very fleshy, but she’s definitely not skinny! She would even be considered too fat for runway by international modeling agencies.

      January 7, 2016 at 6:52 pm

      ..same goes for you as well! #bodyshamingcrew

      How is she too skinny?

    Taje…… will you. Have my babies

    I think she did a good job. It’s hard for plus size women to find clothes that actually look fashionably good on them. I do not like the first crop top. I think the arms are too tight, however the I prefer how tight the see through black top is.

  12. Somtoo

    Better brassiere next time. smoother ones perhaps. You can see the lacy or jagged edge on the undergarments. Ruined the styling. But i love the juxtaposition of full figured and slim. Also love the clothes on the bigger lady. Fit her well. Get better undergarments next time with smoother finishing if you will be wearing very tight clothes

    Why is Taje looking like SHIGIDI in the first pic. the slimmer look is better biko. she fine for some places though (I mean Taje)

  14. Bey

    January 7, 2016 at 4:22 pm

    Everyone cant be slim, just like everyone isn’t black, white or yellow. We are all different, God made us so. The fact Taje or any oda big girl out dere is plus sized doesn’t mean they eat more or are not as healthy as you or I. She’s a pretty girl making d most of what she’s got. Is she to wear baggy tees and track suits just cos she’s big ?

  15. Fifi

    Cant stop looking at tajes trotters,clothes were okay

    This is so boring…..smh

  17. i no send

    January 7, 2016 at 4:46 pm

    ..but i like taje ..she seems confident and has embraced her body ……the bullying comments is from people who have problem with her confidence and not so much about her body type……and I’m not plus size before anyone comes for me .

    When it is not too tight on the skin, it fit Taje really well. She has a very pretty face, but most time she does not wear clothes that compliment her body shop. She is still very young and probably browsing for styles, trying on new trends, young things. The girl is cute, big up to her!

    January 7, 2016 at 4:50 pm

    Taje,did you have issues with the stylist in the past, cos he/she clearly doesn’t like you……lol

  21. fabulicious

    January 7, 2016 at 6:02 pm

    Someobody please tell me that this design on Taje is a rumour.Its not actually coming into existence abi?

  22. Friend

    January 7, 2016 at 6:13 pm

    I am all for being confident in your skin and all, but this is just a no no. Taje is a self proclaimed FITNESS EXPERT/BLOGGER and she looks like this? Its now about being skinny or fat its about the message she is passing across. You cant get away with this anywhere else and the real fitness experts should be outraged by you calling yourself one.

    Keep being stylish tho

    taje doesn;t seem to have a nice figure. i’m all for plus size but there are many plus size girls with great figures

  24. IRENE B

    January 7, 2016 at 8:15 pm

    Wow. That lady is highly bootylicious

  25. Nahum

    January 7, 2016 at 8:24 pm

    Taje is beautiful but some styles did not flatter her and she looked absolutely stunning in other styles. I LOVED the polka dot dress. All ye fat shaming crew, you guys are beginning to sound like a broken record and a bit retarded. Not everyone has the same body, why do you feel the need to hurt people? Are your lives really that miserable???

  26. Reeaddict till infinity

    January 7, 2016 at 8:25 pm

    Its so crystal clear that the collection is for all sizes. Why bashing Teja priest? Teja priest was used to showcase the collection for y’all to see how good it will look in a fat person when they wear it. It is logically BV! Reeky love ‘Katapot’ is killing me softly but I can’t die becos I want to live to testify. Your voice is dope!

    January 7, 2016 at 9:11 pm

    Lawd have mercy…..hahhhahhahhaa
    Warriz diz nahhhh and that awkward pose is not flattering.
    Her proportions are just bad, isn’t der someone with a better body shape, Waje perhaps.
    Nne, you’re a fine girl but ehhh………….

    I wouldn’t be surprised if the people criticising Taje behind their phone screens or computers are insecure and even dealing with worse issues… Why cant people see the beauty in everything? Its commendable that a plus size woman would be open to modelling… She has stepped out of the norm and dared to be different… #dealwithit This is 2016…

    Always glued to me system anytime i see Taje. Love her, love her shape personality and all

  37. tiana

    January 8, 2016 at 7:46 pm

    taje is prettier and more confident but personally i would not want to be as big as her. At the same time i would not want to be as slim as the model. its finding what size you are comfortable with and owning that. People will always hate regardless.

  38. z3e

    April 6, 2016 at 3:51 pm

    lol Taje is too fat abeg!! she should hit the gym….just 26 and that fat…please dont encourage her…she needs a diet and a gym
