Versus, I have a question about body shape. I don`t know if you can answer when you don`t have a picture, but I`ll try to give a general description:

Shoulders wider than your hips, normal/straight waist, long torso, normal/shorter legs. Would you say that`s an inverted triangle?

Love the photos in this post btw! And love your site as well!:D

IMO with her, it’s her upper arms and thighs that make her ‘plus size’. In those dresses, anyway, she doesn’t look huge, but her arms just have no definition.

okay she seems normal shaped to me…. like any nice with a good body pretty girl i’d see on the street..she does not look voluptuous or big shaped……i dont have anything against big shaped girls but if they’re supposed to bring out on the magazine a girl like that then this model’s not it…any opinions?

i remember flipping through glamour and stopping when i came to her….i couldn’t figure out why i liked her so much…..then it hit me that she actually had some shape!! not “plus size”, but she doesn’t look like she’s starving

love this 🙂

Awe that is so sweet… I really appreciate the support. It’s difficult being an ‘in between size’… so any job is a blessing. I just have to wait for God’s timing… but hopefully the industry will soon shift toward Healthy models!

According to the Powers that be in modelling she IS plus size.

For them, plus size = anyone who isn’t a size 0-2

Again, plus-sized is a fashion label. It means hips measuring more than 34 inches. It is not a euphamism for fat. Everything from half an inch over 34 inches on is plus sized. People have to stop thinking that plus sized means overweight.

I thought ‘plus size’ is supposed to mean hips of 40+ inches, but even for a 5ft8+ women that is hardly on the extra large side is it. It’s about time they re-thought some of the names they give to various modelling divisions. Calling what appears to be a perfectly healthy size woman ‘plus size’ just gives out a bad impression to the general public. I do not think it helps young girls self esteem being told if they have one smidgen over 34″ hips they’d be considered ‘plus size’ (even if that’s only be the wharped standards of the… Read more »

i think her face is a bit unordinary that is good for a model, like the hair+make up, the clothes fit her nicely. In general i think she’s cute and the photoshoot is nice.
Thx God no nude pics and ugly/unflattering outfits here like in most of previous plus-size shoots in mags we’ve seen…though i’m not sure i can call her plus-size , to me she looks just fine, but maybe its the clothes and angles, who knows.

She’s plus size!!??

What are her stats, anyone know?

Casey

I’m actually surprised to see people say that she is unordinary. I actually didn’t notice that she was a plus-sized model until I looked closer. And by that I mean, she is modelesque. She makes me want to buy the clothes and buy into the whole model fantasy. Her face especially stands out to me. She is not just some size 10 who is a model by default because they want a size 10 model. Instead, she is a model who happens to be a size 10. And I don’t find it ridiculous that they are calling her plus-size. In… Read more »

There should be more models this sort of size! She’s a happy medium

I think a lot of plus size models just look unhealthy, if not obese

I agree. One thing different about this shoot is that it’s not about a model – but the clothes. She’s just a model modeling clothes – not a statement. I enjoy this
Plus she’s a very, very pretty lady.

She doesn’t look plus sized ! i would say she is an eu 40 or 42.

At least it’s a step in the right direction. She may not be ‘plus’ sized in real life (a size 10=plus..not a chance) but for the fashion rags this is plus sized and I’m glad they are shifting in the direction. Baby steps and this is nice.

this is such a nosy question, but do you mind my asking what size you wear in clothing??

i have the exact same states but have a larger build….i’m always interested to see if it’s just in my head or if i’m in the “normal” range for people with the same stats

again, hope that doesn’t seem too nosy 🙂

Dalz

I thought “plus-size” just meant that a model was above the average model size? Wouldn’t plus-size models still be considered “average” for the general population (if not thinner)? I think this woman is quite stunning, but she doesn’t seem like the the average model size. She has a bit of meat on her bones. 🙂 Look at the difference in leg size! (‘Course it could be photoshopped to accentuate her size, who knows…)

Yay! She looks great!

I really hope the mainstream keeps up with this trend, it’s soo difficult to judge what would look good when clothes are shown only on super slender models. Curvy girls want to buy clothes, too!

I just got my issue of Glamour and I looked through that section, and I would have never thought she was a plus size model. She is beautiful and she make me feel good about myself.

shes really pretty! and i’m happy with this spread, it doesn’t necessarily seem like their just showing a ‘curvier’ model to make readers happy (no naked pictures) but because shes gorgeous and looks great in the clothes!

I knew when I flipped through my Glamour that this was the mags effort in trying to include plus sized models into the mag. plus sized, not imo. it’s nice to see dif colors and shapes of females in fashion and i esp love her hair

She is stunningly gorgeous and refreshingly normal. I love her hair, especially paired with the red lips. I love that magazines are including “plus sized” (aka, normal) models in magazines now. I think it speaks more to all their readers.

Plus-size? If she is, then I am too.

She looks more of a medium/thin type girl.
Certainly not what I’d call ‘plus-size’ though.
Looks good anyway.

Models like this make me want to buy everything they are wearing. I never look at a stick thin model and think I would look good in what they are wearing because I am not a size 0 (or 6 feet tall). BUT she makes me think, “hmm… this looks good on normal people. where can I buy?!”

CoffeeGirl

Stunning! She looks very slim ( not only for a plus size, just slim in general )

padme
Guest

Why do they have to use that phrase? It’s so offensive to call someone who is a healthy weight, “plus-size”. It just makes regular women who are size 10 start to think they are overweight when they’re not.

all this plus size models start looking thinner and thinner

Ella

She looks to be of an average weight to me, but if she were a lot shorter perhaps she would be plus-size.

It’s a pity that there are just as many petite women as there are plus-size women, yet you don’t see any petite models modelling clothing made for petite women.

kate
Guest
kate

Maybe or maybe not….the point is she does not look ‘plus size’ for her height and therefore I think the term is being used inappropriately.

Perhaps they should start calling size 2, 5ft10 catwalk models ‘minus size’ and see how they like it.

Dalz

According to her Agency she’s 5’8 and size 10. And she’s plus size? I’m 5’4 size 6-8 and when i was size 4-6 people used to ask me if have some serious disease. And because she’s taller I suppose we have similar proportions or she might look even thiner. Crazy…

kate
Guest
kate

And I bet she is on the smaller side of a size 10 and could probably well call herself an 8….I certainly don’t think a 5ft8 size 8 or even a shorter size 8 can really be deemed as ‘plus size’. It’s ridiculous to use that term….I always wonder why they don’t just call catwalk models ‘minus size’ considering they are the ones that are mostly underweight not the so called ‘plus size’ models like Miss St. John here.

no body should be complaining….aside from crystal renn she is the only plus sized model ive seen and not thought they were grossly fat. she is a good weight because she definitely looks healthy….not like those bigger plus sized (almost obese) girls who claim to eat very clean and go to the gym every day…load of crap imo anyway im also pleased to see they featured a plus sized model and didnt make a big deal, just put her in with the rest. It’s better that way because they will be taken more seriously if they’re not made out to… Read more »

Sorry but plus size should mean just that – PLUS SIZED, not average size or even slim.

Because ‘normal’ size models are usually underweight and often appear emaciated perhaps they should be deemed ‘MINUS SIZE’.

Grace St. John

As a model it took me a while to get used to the term ‘plus’… But just as other people have pointed out… that’s the industry for ya! And for the longest time I thought that that meant that I was less of a model… now I just tell myself ‘The client could have picked any skinny skinny model, but they picked me’… thus I always feel just as confident. It’s difficult to be an ‘in between’ size (not small enough to be straight size and not big enough to be a plus sized model) but at the end of… Read more »

Plus sized? She looks like most women that live on this planet. Normal sized arms, chest, and legs. Nothing wrong with that! and i certainly would not call her plus size.

LOL
Guest
Who came up with this “More than 34″ hip” rule, anyways? I say they go eat S*$T! This woman is STUNNING…and I’m glad that people are beginning to shirk this crap about being thin or nothing. I wear size 4 in WOMENS’ jeans, as in, from the Gap, Anthropologie, Lucky Brand. I wear size 12 in “Junior” or “misses” size- like PacSun, Fred Meyer, Union Bay. When I realized that I’m 26, and teen girls’ jeans are ugly and don’t have room for hips and a~~, it was such a relief that I wore a smaller size in WOMENS’ jeans!

I think plus size should specifically refer to women of at least US sizes 12-16. Sizes 4-10 should just be referred to as typical size models and anything smaller (unless on a petite (height/build) model should not even be allowed).

Lolita
Guest
Lolita

So those of us who wear size zeros “shouldn’t be allowed”? Nice. Everyone here I’d preaching body acceptance, except it’s only acceptance towards fuller figured and “healthy sized” women. I take extreme offense to that. I’ve hovered at a size 0 for the past decade, and not for lack of trying. I eat 1,800 calories a day and still do not gain. I’m 5’7, so everybody and there mother assumed I’m Anorexic. I’m not.

Body love and body acceptance means loving and accepting ALL shapes. Even people who are considered “too thin”.

kate
Guest
kate

I did put ‘unless petite in height OR build.

You may just be small build for 5ft7, but you gotta appreciate that the majority of average height to tall women are not naturally built that small (and that is discounting the fact that the average women these days is overweight).

When you have 5ft9 catwalk models in size 0-2 representing a very small percentage of the population it just makes very little sense to me.

i think Grace is fantastic and her body type, shape, size AND her face is lovely. it’s too bad though that she probably earns only a fraction of what her ‘standard runway’ and ‘standard plus-size’ counterparts earn. i can see her being dismissed as ‘too ordinary’ in the sense that hers is a body type that’s not too rare among ordinary, non-model women. i’m afraid that unless there’s a drastic shift in the industry’s standards and mentality, models like Grace won’t move beyond commercial(ish) work because of the high value placed on unusual facial features, very skinny and long-limbed bodies,… Read more »
