The link I posted previously was from the above-referenced link.  These women are beautiful, but perhaps not the "fashion" models the industry-standard folks think of as plus-sized.

It's interesting that a lot of those women used to be much, much thinner. Fashion models in some cases, just normal in others.

From the article...
Of the men questioned, a U.S.-size 10 was picked as their ideal body for women. The women polled cited their ideal as a size 6, with the national average a size 12.

This poll was taken with their wifes standing next to them

When taken alone the men picked a 0-3 as the ideal body size

I love this forum the best. I'm brand new to trying out modeling, I had no Idea I'd be considered plus size. hmm, cool.To bad I'm to dang short for runway.

You are not modeling industry plus-size, because you are way too short. If you were 5'10" tall and size 12...

Exactly... people are taking the term to a whole different level.


Since when can't plus size and fabulous be synonymous?

Those ladies show it can smile

This ideal of a tight, thin body is SO new. I just can't imagine for the last couple thousand years, men didn't really understand what they want or something.

It's about time women over a size 4 are the highlight. So sick of anorexic taking all the spotlight. It has to start somewhere and with someone. 1 step at a time change will be made

Ugh, regardless of what "fashion" says, it makes me a little sick to see any of those women be called plus size. They all look fabulous to me.

Men are not that complicated. My girlfriends who have the most successful marriages are nowhere near being supermodels. I don't say that to be mean, it's just how it is. Men know what they want. Magazines are all publicity & meant to provide a fantasy.

And that first step would be if you refrained from calling women sizes 4 and under "anorexic."
