The 1st issue of Voluptuous magazine was cover-dated Spring 1994. Lengthy before the electronic wonders of the World Wide Web (remember that term?), magazines were king, followed by VHS tapes. There were many freelance photographers, especially in UK, supplying photo sets of big-boobed girls in addition to the London studio employees run by John Graham. That is why British glamour models ruled during the 1990s. Please note that not each V-mag glamour model from that decade is pictured in this gallery.
“There were a scarcely any driving forces behind the genesis of the mag,” recalled editor-in-chief and publisher John Fox.
“By 1994, there was a growing pushback against the novelty of the super-busty augmentations, especially coming from the Great Britain but it was a sentiment that was growing worldwide amongst many breast aficionados.
“In addition, we were discovering and shooting lots of new glamour models montly who qualified. In other words, we had an abundance of content. And, as a juvenile, aggressive company, we were looking to expand our portfolio. Doing so within the big-bust niche appeared to be logical.
“Two years earlier, we’d had some coarse patches when we first took a bow SCORE, but by 1994, when Voluptuous initially appeared, we had an orderly workflow in place, we had gained confidence in our ability to succeed and ‘coz of SCORE‘s success, we had the support of our distributors to expand.
“The editor and the art director did the heavy lifting as far as designing and assembling the issue. In advance of and throughout the complete process, the 3 of us did tons of brainstorming. We decided to go with the ‘All Stacked, All Natural, All Plump’ sub-title, and that ended up causing tons of debates as far as the model selection process was anxious and what kinds of angels would be in the magazine.
“The next several issues featured Lisa Miller, one more German model named Michaela, Rhonda Baxter, Danni Ashe and then, near the end of 1995, Chloe Vevrier on the covers, so those were the types of great natural models that defined the mag.”
All of the pix in this gallery are labeled with the girl’s name and, in majority of ’em, the mag they appeared in.
