Star women’s writer Jo Davison needs two fabulous, fashionable women sized 16-18 to take part in a feature which aims to turn the tables on the young and thin brigade.

We’re looking for women in their forties or fifties who know how to dress for their body shape, love the way they look and have no intention of slimming down just so they conform to society’s stereo-typical view that only youthful size 10 women can be truly beautiful.

If you love the skin you’re in, email us at with your name, age, address, daytime telephone number, a jpeg picture and a short explanation of how you dress and how you feel about yourself.

The two women selected will be interviewed, then get the chance to model outfits from Evans’s chic new spring/summer collections. And they get outfits worth £200 each to take home!

Sheffield Newspapers Ltd competition rules apply. For full details, go to Closing date Monday April 25. Entrants need to be available to take part in a fashion shoot on Tuesday May 2 or May 3, 2-6pm.
