  • This is ridiculous!!

    A local girl is a finalist in a plus size model search (here's a link: Plus size models) Now tell me, do any of those girls qualify for plus size!?!?!?!

    Re: This is ridiculous!!

    I am a size 12 and am 5'8" tall and am considered a plus sized model by Hot Topic Inc.
    This is a full body shot of me, in case you need a visual of my size...



    The models in the link are beautiful, but unfortunately " plus sized " seems to keep getting smaller and smaller.. Marilyn Monroe was a size 12...

      Well, they aren't 5'9" and weight 97lbs. So yea, I guess they are plus sized ladies.

      BTW my friend Joy (of Fat Rant fame) has modeled for Skorch.

        You girls are right, they are getting smaller and smaller.

          Well to be a regular model I think you need to be a size 6 or smaller. Most "samples" are size 6, but most models are sizes 0-4. Now I am a size 12 and I do not consider myself a plus size.

          A little piece of heaven

            I'm a size 6 but wouldn't be considered "regular model" physique. I just know how to hide my flab well!

            FWIW, I was a size 14 back in 1993.

              This country's weight standards are beyond me, even for guys. I'm 5'10", 175 lbs and my doctor told me I'm overweight.

                Are you serious?!?!
                That's my exact height and weight too. There's no way that can be overweight.

                            The standards of beauty today are just rediculous... I do agree that the U.S. does have an obesity epidemic, but what is considered beautiful these days by famous "fashonistas" is just really sad and disgusting. Even barbie has CURVES... I'd much rather be my size than the size of the olson twins or any of those skinny runway models who are DYING to be thin... anorexia is a sad, scary disorder and I feel bad that society tends to lean towards making too thin girls beauty icons...

                              i'm guilty of not being happy with my appearance. I'm 5'6" and my doctor says i'm overweight for my height.. he told me 115-120 was ideal.. that made me feel so horrible. But i'll never resort to anorexia or bulimia or anything dangerous to get it off.
