Some are speculating that the actions of these big players suggest a tidal change in the fashion world. Sure, seeing plus-size models climb their way to into the mainstream is wonderful news, but has anyone actually looked at the industry's definition of "plus-size?" In the U.S., any model that's over a size 6, is considered plus-size.
Since the average size of the American woman is a size 12-14, then why are we calling women half their weight "plus-size"? Need proof? Take a look at these ten suposedly plus-size models. Do you think these women belong in this category?
