Being a “woman of size”, I was very interested in these facts… And I was honestly in awe of these stunning, tasteful nude shots of this model. They need to do an America’s Next Top Model PLUS SIZE edition. I’d love to see it.
Read this article and post about the changes in the modeling idustry.
- Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today, she weighs 23% less.
- Ten years ago plus-size models averaged between size 12 and 18. Today the need for size diversity within the plus-size modeling industry continues to be questioned.
- The majority of plus-size models on agency boards are between a size 6 and 14, while the customers continue to express their dissatisfaction.
- 50% of women wear a size 14 or larger, but most standard clothing outlets cater to sizes 14 or smaller.
