Plus-Size Model Treat: Jada Sezer

tumblr_lzjxggUkVi1r33a7yo1_500 - Plus-Size Model Treat: Jada Sezer

Name: Jada Sezer

Age: 23

Size: US size 14 / size 16-18 UK

Quotes from Jada:

*There is a huge public demand for cool, funky, fresh clothes that a bigger-sized woman can wear. People associate plus-sized in a negative way, as something that is frumpy, old, outdated. But I want to get people thinking outside the box and portray plus-sized women in a certain light.Plus-size is always seen in a negative light as standing for obesity and for people being unhappy. But millions of women are plus-size and feel comfortable.”

*Ultimately I’d want to be on a catwalk with straight-size models rather than do something exclusive. Growing up, I never saw women like me. People clap for Beyoncé and Jennifer Lopez being curvy women, but they’re size 8 to 10 (UK), and they have personal trainers. I’ve never seen good, cool, curvy women. Sometimes magazines throw in a plus-size model as a goodwill gesture, but they’re not taken seriously.

*If I can just build confidence in one lady then that’s my job done. I don’t want to be a model. I want to be a role model.

… says Jada.

a lot of times i think the plus size models aren’t that plus size, they just look normal. however this girl does look plus size. i agree that it’s great to show women of all shapes and sizes and it’s empowering, but just like how most models are too thin and set a bad standard, i think bigger women set a bad standard too. it’s totally ok to be curvy but it’s just as unhealthy as being super skinny to be overweight. i don’t know why modelling can’t just be with average, healthy people. hope this doesnt come across as… Read more »

+1, Kels. Variety is necessary, but why does everything in fashion have to be so extreme? Where are the sizes UK 8-14/US 6-12/EU 36-42? Though I’m not against seeing some very small and very big women too. Women and especially girls of all sizes need to see positive representations of themselves to build up their confidence. Even if one has weight-related probelms with one’s health, it’s easier to conquer them with a positive approach to one’s body and a strong self-esteem. She’s good-looking and seems very reasonable but I do find re-defining the word “curvy” for her own purposes a… Read more »

I agree and this has been talked about ad-nauseam. Where I am from most women fall in the 6-12US category, and using models this size would not only show a variety of healthy bodies and shapes, it would only inspire a lot of women to dress better for their bodies, I’ve said this before but there’s a lot of stuff skinny models wear that I know I can’t get away with – same with plus sized ones (I vary between sizes 6-8). It’s trial and error and while it is interesting, finding out what works for you can be an… Read more »

I agree with you. I am a size 12-14, down from a 20, and I feel like I won’t know how to dress until I get to a six. As a 18, there were no examples of what t wear and a lot of the blogs are similar with dresses, or tunics. The more weight I lose, the more I can imagine myself in clothes that are in Lucky, etc. I don’t know why models can’t be in the middle and even more overweight models without it being in a special issue. A lot of my coworkers are obese, they… Read more »

I definitely agree that there should be a broader range of body types in the modelling industry — however, I don’t think that this woman seems necessarily unhealthy. Her BMI or fat % could be completely normal for her height, I don’t think that can be determined by looking at these pics. Same goes for very thin women. I know plenty of healthy, extremely thin people who eat well and exercise and aren’t necessarily underweight, they just look it. Thin people like Miranda Kerr and plus sized women should be included in the modelling industry, it’s just that they should… Read more »

Kate Upton is exactly what you are asking for: not stick thin, not overweight. Different body shape than most models. And yet…hmmmmm, most people here have something negative to say about that. There aren’t many different sized models because, well, women are assholes. We say we want something different when really we’re content with the same old, just as long as we can complain about it.

Having more and more plus size clothing being sold at every store just allows people to be more at ease with being at an unhealthy weight. I believe in no way should we encourage this as the new norm. I understand that this might seem harsh but this is how I see things.

I kind of have to agree..but I am conflicted. Before I used to see plus size modals as being each their natural weight and just happened to fall into modeling, so I felt it was cool. But recently with that plus size model saying her modeling agency told her: gain weight to be plus size or lose weight to be a standard modal, my opinion has changed a little bit. Plus size modelling seems to be just as irritating as regular modals who are forced to fit 1 specific mold. I used to see plus size models as celebrating their… Read more »

I am a man who has packed on 60 lbs in the last few years after living much of my life as a athlete (I’m currently trying to work it off). I was recently approached by a major modeling agency to model a new line of plus size jeans for a major high end denim company. My initial thought was, “why would company X want a fat model?” They explained that the overweight market is the future market of America and they want to capitalize on it. Which I think is a sad statement about America. Here’s the shocker, I… Read more »

Wow, so instead of (re)educating people so obesity will decrease they are preparing for a future where most people will indeed be obese? How effed up. I’m glad you’re not considering gaining weight so you could work for them, if you’re already uncomfortable at your current weight then they’re obviously going for really overweight and unhealthy people. I don’t even know what to think of it, it’s sick and it should be criticized. Good luck on losing the weight!

I liked your comment because you are a man(I expect mainly women from this site), because you don’t want to be overweight since it is uncomfortable to live in an over body(I feel the same), and because you brough a very interesting experience here. I think that also very thin(underweight) models are a cause of overweight people and contribute of the developing of a wrong approach with food and body. even when I was thin I tried to be underweigt(and I did it) because I wanted to look like models.

I agree to an extent but clothing retailers (the smart ones) don’t see it that way because they want to make $$$….the fact is, nearly 3/4 of Americans are overweight or obese, and to not have models that represent these people or sell clothes that fit them will hurt their business. I am in no way a supporter of fat acceptance or the idea that it is ok to allow our children to become overweight, but it is reality in this day and age, and unless some magical pill comes along, it ain’t changing any time soon.

Yeah you can’t just tell fat people “Go run around naked until you fit in a smaller size, we won’t make clothes for your kind!”

They aren’t telling people to get fatter to fit in their clothes brands, but the people who are already that size do need clothing until they choose to get healthy (or don’t)

Erica

You have every right to your opinion, but, I’m sorry, if you think punishing overweight women by limiting the range of clothes they can wear is truly going to make people lose weight (or not gain it), you are seriously over-simplifying things! I don’t think it ‘encourages’ people to stay overweight/become overweight, to see that they are able to buy some fashionable clothes. It’s nice to be able to buy them, but most people are going to find their lifestyle more important than nice clothes! It takes education and dedication to change the myriad of different socio-economic, genetic, habitual and… Read more »

I agree Erica, bigger people shouldn’t be denied the option of dressing in hip, sexy, flattering clothes. Should they be forced to wear a tent just because they’re not today’s society’s ideal of a perfect body? Of course not. It seems that what some people fear is that by “glamourizing” being overweight people will become unhealthy, but I honestly don’t think that’s a real risk, because I don’t know anyone who’s thin and will look at a picture of a plus-size model and suddenly decide they want to gain weight and look like her.

Exactly Jane, that was part of my point – no one wants to be fat! It’s just not something people aspire to be – it’s something people are and have to keep their chin up about regardless, but they don’t truly *choose* to be like that (and I’m sure some people will argue – but it’s not an informed choice if you grew up with no positive role models and no knowledge of good nutrition and exercise habits). A slim person is very unlikely to look at someone Jada’s size and say to themselves: “I’m going to start eating an… Read more »

Hi Erica, I always find your comments very insightful. However, in this case I think you missed the mark. I believe that for middle and upper middle class folks, your point of view has merit. However, for less educated people (where a large majority of those overweight or obese lie), I believe that shame and fear and all those negative emotions would make a change (not saying it’s necessarily a good way to go about making changes). In those types of areas, many people simply don’t realize that they are overweight or obese. I know I had clients (working with… Read more »

I think you have a point Plirr – and a point of view I don’t have experience with. You’re right, my view of this is middle class. I didn’t grow up with an obese family or a lot of obesity in my community so it has never been ‘normal’ to me. It’s interesting to me that some people can be very overweight and truly not know it – but you’re right, I have heard people describe themselves as having ‘a few extra pounds’ when they have about 100!

It works in the rest of the world though. People there know obesity is unhealthy, and it’s not “fat-shaming”, it’s a health issue.

You just said yourself you have “near-lifelong bad habits”, so IT IS your choice to be unhealthy, and you could change it but you don’t want to.

Erica

Do you think bad habits are easy to change? I do want to change them (and have changed many), but putting that desire into practice is a very difficult thing. How you have lived your life for many, many years is basically a physical and emotional addiction – changing it is more complex than simply acknowledging you have a problem and ‘choosing’ to turn your life upside down! That’s the first step, and I’ve taken it (and I’ve changed a lot of those bad habits and lost weight) but unfortunately losing weight is a very complicated thing that can be… Read more »

I don’t think people would necessarily want to put on weight, but the risk is that people who are already overweight/obese will think “it’s not a big deal/it’s okay if I’m overweight since models are”. It is already the case imo… Some people are in denial. For instance I’ve noticed many comments such as “this is NOT plus size, this is average/normal!!!” about some actresses/models who are clearly overweight (I know it does not mean necessarily unhealthy, but still). Even though it is “average” to be overweight in some places, it does not make it okay. However, some people tend… Read more »

I’m not sure that smoking is a good example to illustrate your point. It’s true that many of the current crop of smokers would find it nearly impossible to quit. However there are many less new smokers compared to past generations demonstrating efficacy of the education/social stigma efforts introduced in the past few decades.

Plus size is not the same thing as overweight. There are plenty of people who have a bigger bone structure than others and are just naturally larger, not unhealthy. And so what if people are okay with being overweight? How dare they be OKAY with their bodies when you disapprove of it? I don’t think people should stay at a weight that’s dangerous to their health, but it is their doctor’s job to tell them they need to lose weight, not yours.

I know people will hate on her for using the terms “curvy” and “role model”. I do think people should stop using “curvy” as an euphemism for *everything*. But I agree that bigger women in fashion can be role models, not because their figures are healthier or superior in any way, but simply because they show you can be confident and accepting of your body even when not “fitting in”, literally.

I think she’s got a gorgeous face (with darker hair though the blonde doesn’t suit her) and she is well-spoken.

I don’t think she looks unhealthy. And I am a size 4 yoga instructor so it’s not because I am searching for people who are relatable. I just don’t think you can tell someone’s health by their appearance.

It’s easy to for her to boast being a size 12-14us when she’s like 6 feet tall. I’m 5 5, it wouldn’t fly for me. Just like robin Lawley, it works because you’re TALL and PROPORTIONAL, Jada, not because you’re a soldier for the cause. A 0/2 is more healthy and achievable and relatable for someone my height and frame.

MerryHappy

Not meaning to be hostile, just different things ate relatable to different people. She isn’t relatable to me. She’s pretty and well spoken, but like many others, the industry makes me uncomfortable telling people to gain or lose weight to for a category.

At 5’2″, I think I am healthier-looking at a size 4. Even though I have small frame, when I get down to a 0/2, my rib cage becomes visible, I lose about 2 cup sizes, and my cheekbones hollow out in a way that I don’t find attractive. This even though I do strength training with my cardio. Interestingly, when I got down to that weight (got a little overzealous at the gym) my boyfriend who loves the super-thin model look (he’s slovenian) and whose every GF before me was in the 00 range actually came to me and said… Read more »

Completely agree 🙂 I’m 5 5, a size 2, and work out regularly with Cardio, weights, etc. HIT intervals are my favorite. My boyfriend prefers me a 2/4, i get too bony as a 0 as well. I have a strong but small frame if that makes sense? Lol. But i know many people who look perfectly healthy as a zero because of their super petite frame, and a 14 would never be right for them.

Beyonce and J.Lo are both about a size 6-8. Maybe a 4 on their thinnest of days, which is perfectly normal (although definitely not the national average in Fat America). What does she want them to do, balloon up to an unhealthy size? then will they be curvy enough? I’m about their size and I am far from a straight sized model

I don’t find her pretty and it doesn’t have to do with her weight. I just don’t see her as a model. None of the posted pictures show anything in terms of a “spark” that connects her to the viewing audience. It’s just another Kim K. pose, with the mouth hanging open.

I can’t believe that someone seriously believes that having excessive, visible adipose tissue equals healthy. That boggles my mind. Have you never taken a biology or anatomy and physiology class? Any type of science whatsoever?

I’m extremely confident (as a health care professional myself) that the majority of educated health care professionals out there aren’t going to give someone clearly well over a normal weight the “healthy” stamp of approval. Your time spent on the internet may better be spent educating yourself with some basic facts about the human body. Mmmkay?

Actually, I have taken many human biology classes, I am am a PharmD candidate, just completed my third year of pharmacy school.

I could go on about my education, but I really don’t feel like arguing with you.

I think she looks really good for her size. She’s obviously very overweight, but I can’t say with any certainty that she’s unhealthy. She is also what I would deem curvy. I don’t agree with curvy being synonymous with simply being overweight – it’s about the overall shape of a woman’s body – and hers is curvy AND overweight. J.Lo and Beyonce are also curvy and ‘normal’ weight – Candice Swanepoel is curvy and also very thin. I love curvy shapes and think all those women look good – and Jade does too. Is she my ideal?

Im getting irritated with there being a new plus size model everyday telling us the exact same thing. She says she comfortable with herself but she’s so obviously seeking validation and acceptance. Why are they always talking about being “normal” and wanting to be relatable like Jlo and Beyonce? It just adds more support to my previous opinion. Those names are always thrown around,… Read more »

She is gorgeous! (If I was a guy, I’d tap that a– ;p lol)

BUT… The MAJORITY of women would NOT look like her at that size. Her proportions are fantastic, and she is the actual definition of the word curvy, while being big, rather than being just heavier and calling herself “curvy.” Thus, once again, you’ve really got to call her out on representing the “normal” fat girl.
Her modeling skills aren’t fantastic though, and her facial expressions in some of these look like she’s stoned.

Agreed with her. A lot of people are plus-sized, even really unhealthily overweight, and limiting their clothing choices isn’t gonna benefit anyone. Also, at 5’3” and currently 130 lbs i just noticed i wasn’t able to fit into a size 40 (EU, is it like 8-10 US or something..) dress at H&M. I’m of a normal weight and even i’m close to needing plus sized clothes apparently! And my slim 6 inches taller friend wasn’t able to find a single pair of big enough pants from there.

I can’t fit anything at all in Zara – I couldn’t get their biggest size past my b~~~~! I do have a lovely Zara duvet cover though 😉 H&M is much the same, though they do have some plus size things now. As far as I can tell, euro sizes are often smaller than the size guide suggests.

Uma

That’s because, unlike what size charts on the internet say, there are many different sizing systems in Europe. Spanish or Italian sizes run really small (an IT 36 is an XXS); H&M runs very small, I can alway count on H&M 34 fitting me, while in Zara 34 size pants are usually large. On the other hand, German sizing runs way bigger, a 34 in German brands falls off of me. And compared to UK, I usually need a 4, I was just in London last week and except for brands clearly targeted at teenagers where a 6 was ok,… Read more »

I generally don’t find plus size models very interesting to look at, unless like Robyn Lawley they have a kind of elegance which draws you in. I don’t think Jada has this at all, she looks very average to me, and her modelling skills look a little clumsy to be honest. In the second photo, her face looks beautiful and symmetrical and a bit like Alicia Keys. But it might just be the makeup because her face looks pretty average in most of the other photos to me.

Candy M.
Guest
Candy M.

Yes, I do place an importance on size but some people transcend that like Robyn Lawley. Jada should not be a model. Whereas Robyn looks like a larger framed, athletic, amazon this woman looks average and overweight. When looking at the models who really are a the top of their profession, Linda Evangelista, Versushka, Natasha Poly, they have a star quality thats hard to explain. They didn’t get to where they were by whining, which this sounds like to me, and trying to create controversy. Before this she was completely unknown, it screams opportunist to me.

Hard to tell how good a model she is/isn’t when we don’t get to see her in clothes, modelling stuff. Wish they would stop doing this with plus-size models, can they ever shoot them in editorials with cool and fashionable clothes on, as they do straight-sized models? Not blaming the models btw just annoyed that this is how they are always represented.

Someone actually said this in a previous post.. most plus size models look older than they are. But this girl looks even younger than 23. But she’s very pretty in my opionion and somehow reminds me of Rita Ora a bit 🙂

And I really like her quote, BUT to be honest she is too big for my taste. At least I wouldn’t feel comfortable at all in her body.

I’m.petite and in my 30s. Have any of you gals gone to the petite section? Most are rather unflattering……..bigger girls aren’t the only ones limited.

It’s not just you lovely petite ladies- remember to spare a thought for your taller sisters too! 🙂 I’m about 5’11 and find it almost impossible to get jeans/trousers that fit, as my in-seam is 36 inches. I’m not sure about you but I’m from the UK; the only shops I know of that stock a ‘tall’ section are: Dorothy Perkins (very *tiny* range), Long Tall Sally (very old-fashioned), Next (very pricey and sometimes old-fashioned) and New Look (which also used to be very tiny, but has expanded quite a lot now… could still do with some more jeans/trousers though!)… Read more »

Women who are very tall (5’9+) and plus-sized have it the worst imo. Shorter women can easily hem their pants/skirts. My sister is 5’1 and she’s got no issue finding clothes, buys pants in the petite length and tops in ‘small’. Taller women can’t make their pants longer so it’s rough :/ But it’s easier to look slim when you’re tall so that’s an advantage.

One word for you: Levi’s.

I think Levi’s is a little out of my budget (I’m a student!) ha ha 🙂 Also, just had a quick look and, at least on the UK site, their leg lengths only go up to 34 in and I need a 36! I know it’s only a couple of inches, but it really does make the difference- thanks anyway though. 🙂

I’m 5’11” and need a 36″ inseam at the very least also. Try American Eagle. They carry an XL inseam (about 37″) in a lot of their pants and tend to be reasonably priced (they also have sales quite often online, which is generally the only way you can get that inseam). The jeans also hold up pretty well. Keep in mind you may have to order a size down from your normal size when you get them in the longer inseam. I’m a skittle shape with full thighs/butt and I wear a comfortable 4 in their XL inseam jeans… Read more »

she has a nicer figure than say Tara-Lynn or even Robyn just because her shape is nicer, but she’s a bit too big. most women at her size lose their shape completely so if Beoncé and J.Lo aren’t real role models, neither is she. anyway, i don’t think she has an attractive face, it’s a bit too long for my taste

She very pretty. I think my mind is always twisted because I always think to myself, “She would look better if she lost some weight.” Ugh, what’s wrong with me!?

I don’t find her attractive, but I wouldn’t if she was thin either. She just isn’t imo…not to say she is ugly at all. Just not my taste. I do like her in that 4th pic in the black leotard though that’s quite sexy and fierce.

i guess that shows how much they get photoshopped, but in every photo shoot her face looks soooo different. I would never think it was the same person if it didn’t say that in the post

well being overweight is definitly not a good thing somethimes, but seeing overweight women in too small clothes(and i see that a lot!) is even worst! its a torture for those women, so give them clothes for f**k sakes! why you think they dont deserve it?! 🙂 this model has really gorgeous, beautifull face, good proportions, she is big but there is a lot of people who thinks girls like her are very sexy, and im shure they would look insanely hot paired up with some tall, strong guy! 🙂 to each their own! im not a women hater and… Read more »

In response to all those who say “how do YOU know she is unhealthy? Are you her doctor?!?!?” have you been living under a rock? There is a general consensus that being over weight increases your risk of developing a myriad of health problems, ailments, diseases……..so, whole this girl may not have, say, hypertension or diabetes, she’s way more likely to develop it than someone her height and 20lbs lighter. Its as if there was a pic of a woman smoking. Im not a doctor but im pretty sure smoking increases your risk of cancer! Also, anyone who is photoshopped… Read more »

I think it’s perfectly reasonable to say we don’t know her health status just by her appearance. Having an increased risk of health problems does not make you unhealthy! If you carry certain genes you are at higher risk for certain diseases – cancer, diabetes, Huntington’s, Parkinson’t, etc – but that doesn’t make you can unhealthy person. Your risk for hypertension is also higher if you are black, if you have a family history of it, if you eat too much salt, get too little vitamin D, you smoke or you have a stressful lifestyle. Being overweight is one risk… Read more »

She looks trashy in some of these pictures. When I see plus size modeling, I just never take it seriously. It’s hard to see the clothes when it’s stretched out on a bigger body. Modeling is a showcase of clothes not bodies. Tall & thin women work best because the clothes hang and you can see every detail. If I were to go to a plus size fashion show, the only thing I would focus on fat/skin spilling out rather than the clothing. Just my thoughts.

On a side note, I don’t know why America likes to glamourize obesity. Is it to be fair to bigger women/men? In my opinion it’s wrong. It’s sending a bad message to people that being overweight is okay. It’s not okay.

serena

No one glamorizes obesity, if anything it’s looked down upon and associated with being low-income and unhealthy. The fact is obese people need clothes just like the rest of us and that means we need plus-size clothing to model it. Plus-size models are not encouraging people to gain weight.

Referring to the long thread above (I couldn’t decide who to reply to) this is a really interesting discussion. The overarching problem is lack of clear guidelines for what is a healthy size body and what is not, plus a huge amount of underweight and overweight models, and seemingly nothing in between. BMI is way too large of a weight range and also doesn’t consider muscle mass. What I’ve heard recently is that waist circumference is actually the most important, and women should be under 30 inches around the bellybutton. So we don’t even have a great system for telling… Read more »

Body fat percentage is a better way to determine fatness. But there are a few problems in this regard, i.e. no universally applied standards (difference sources say different things) and very few truly accurate methods to measure body composition.

Also, I’ve read it’s less than 32 inches for the waist, but I’d imagine it will vary depending on height and build.

Good points Erica. But, and increased risk of health problems is the exact definition of unhealthy. Un (meaning not) healthy. What is “not healthy”? Doing things that do not contribute to health. Being overweight does not contribute to health. It increases risk. We can dance around it, but statistically, Jada is on her way to being unhealthy. If we want to look at lifestyle: the calorie surplus is obvious. She is sedentary. I see no muscle tone, only fortuitously (read: breasts) deposited subcutaneous fat. again, good point regarding the fact that a thinner smoker would have higher health risks. I… Read more »

Anyone I know who is overweight or obese (and I know a lot unfortunately as I live in Philadelphia, PA in the US which has been repeatedly marked the fattest city in America), isn’t getting fat by overeating fruits veggies, and lean proteins whether meat or vegeterian. They are fat because they are loading their bodies full of fried foods, processed foods, fast foods, tons of alcohol. And even though overweight people obviously eat more food, most probably aren’t getting proper nutrients, and when you’re nutrient-deprived, your body has cravings. So all these people who are overweight and say they… Read more »

I disagree Jennifer. It is true that overweight people often eat a ton of processed junk food, but it’s wrong to assume they’re nutrient deprived. Most larger people are getting the nutrients they need (even unhealthy food like cheeseburgers have nutrients, from the bread, lettuce, and meat) but they’re eating too much overall, and a lot of their diet is junk. For example my mom is overweight, she eats plenty of fruit and vegetables, in addition to unhealthy food. Underweight people are more likely to be nutrient deprived, because often they’re just not eating enough. This is why ED’s can… Read more »

I like how she understands the way plus-size models are seen in the fashion industry. But I don’t believe, regardless of how beautiful she is, that she or any plus size model, will sway the industry any time soon.

I am sorry, but the fact is , the majority of clothes look better on skinny women, they’re easier to fit and theres nothing to “hide” or camouflage.

She must be talking about vanity sizes because there is ,No way are Beyonce and J-Lo UK size 8-10. More like UK size 12 which is like US size 8.
