A size 6 is now plus size in the fashion world, and most runway models meet the physical criteria for anorexia, according to a report that offers shocking insight into the disparity between models and the real-life women they are purporting to represent.
In the January issue of PLUS Model Magazine, plus size model Katya Zharkova and a straight size model are seen in the nude in an attempt to open the minds of the fashion industry," which is stepping further away from reality, according to PLUS founder and editor-in-chief, Madeline Figueroa Jones.

The magazine reveals that some of todays plus size models are wearing the same size as models Christie Brinkley, Paulina Porizkova and Cindy Crawford at the height of their fame in the 1990s. Zharkova, 28, wears a size 14

then women need to not buy so darn much. and only clothes that flatter, do not make women look like 12 year old boys.
Yes and yes. Most red-blooded, heterosexual men prefer women that look like women, not pre-pubescent boys.
“...disparity between sizes of models and real women “
So models aren’t real women?
That is so disgusting. Especially when it's true.
How many people lived in Sodom and Gomorrah and have we exceeded the threshold they exceeded that caused God to destroy them (and save Lot and family)?
“Not since two became the new four and zero became the new two.”
Considering that these three were not even close to being mildly chubby let alone "plus sized", that is a bit disturbing.
Size 0 is the new 2, 2 is the new 4 and 6 is the new 14.
Duh. Most of the models I see today are pure skank.
This was actually news when... 1980? Sheesh. What woman doesn’t know THAT?
“”Duh. Most of the models I see today are pure skank.””
You know dat. Just as bad as the women with big fake chesticles and plastic fish lips. EWWWW!!!!!
It's because the PERVERTED FAGGOTS that "run" the "Fashion Industry" want EVERY one of their "Models" to look like a 12 Year Old boy because THAT is what they pine after!
Couldn't have put it better.
I remember not too long ago reading about a model who was 5'10" and 157 lbs being told she was too heavy to be a plus-size model.
Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8 percent less than the average woman. Today she weighs 23 percent less
More like women have gotten fatter, not that models have gotten skinnier. We used to joke about “Muffin Tops” in the 90’s but now women, and men, are simply obese.
The Division had an "Employees only" sale - got rid of samples, one-offs, and the like. I mentioned it to one of my co-workers, thought that she might like a deal or two.
She thought I was joking. The company only manufactured sizes 0, 1, 2, and 3. My co-worker was, I dunno, "normal"? I didn't ask, but def. not in the 0-3 size range.
And you're right, the place was populated by bitchy Asian women, and even bitchier gays, from the owner right on down. They liked me, OK, though, because I fixed their computers. Before me, if a computer didn't work right, they unplugged it, threw it in a closet, and bought a new one. They had $200-300K in wasted equipment when I got there, most all of it easily reparable...... Place must have just about had a license to print money.
a fat woman magazine publishes an article about fat women models are better.....
You are correct. I also don’t believe for one moment that Cindy Crawford, or any of the other models listed was ever a size 14.
