On why she felt the need to start a line of plus-size clothing:

“When I go shopping, most of the time I’m disappointed. Two Oscars ago, I couldn’t find anybody to do a dress for me. I asked five or six designers—very high-level ones who make lots of dresses for people—and they all said no.”

… says Melissa.

Plus-Size Model Treat: Georgina Burke for Torrid

Plus-Size Model Treat: Georgina Burke for Australian retailer Torrid (which caters to women between U.S. sizes 12 and 28), looking hot in the brand’s swimsuits.

Some quotes from Georgina:

“When I was a teenager, I could’t fit my school uniform. Couldn’t buy what was on trend. I was shopping where your grandmother would shop. Nothing else was available then.”

“If women were in magazines in different race, age and size, then people would see it as realistic.” “It’s definitely changing, we only realize that’s ‘normal’. We are on the right track. It’s doesn’t has to be such an amazing thing to see a ‘plus size’ model in there, when it’s just normal.”

On stereotypes:

“People think plus-size models don’t exercise – we do! But it’s about health, not forcing my body to be something it’s not meant to be.”

On spending years trying to be a size 0:

“Even at my lightest, I just couldn’t get there. I genuinely really tried. I was counting calories, I was taking diet pills, I was dabbling in starvation. I thought you had to be skinny to be beautiful. And I thought I would never be beautiful at this size.”

On being considered plus-sized:

“People say, “How is she a plus-size model?” and I’m like, “Exactly, this is the point, how am I a plus-size model?” I don’t think anyone should be called plus-size. I think it’s derogatory to anyone – it’s a label. I’m a model; I don’t think I need ‘plus-size’ in front of it.”

… says Robyn.
