XLGirls hasn’t shown many legends of plumperdom in new years. This pictorial looks back at the great Roberta Smallwood, one of the babes who blazed the trail for full-figured models at a time when the niche was so miniature, it was greatly difficult to detect magazines and films with her kind of body, unlike this day. Roberta was living in Phoenix, Arizona when she sent her Polaroid shots to John Fox, TSG’s president. The year was 1989. Mr. Fox quickly arranged to send photographer James Hamilton to Arizona. Roberta later went to Los Angeles and then Palm Springs for more discharges. Those episode titles were Hardcore Plumpers, The Superlatively worthy of Voluptuous Volume 1 and The Plumpers of Sundance Spa. Roberta solely modeled for a short time before totally retiring. Life is different now ‘coz of technology. Fresh glamour models use Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram and two hundred other social sites to stay in the public eye. Not so for Roberta who became a legend in a time before science revolutionized communication.
