Some quotes from Fluvia:

I hear plus size women in the US complaining about not being able to find pretty clothes that won’t make them look frumpy and unfashionable. Well, Brazilian plus size women don’t even have that option! It makes me cringe when I go there to see women either having clothes made because stores, in 90% of the cases, carry up to 44, which I think it’s equivalent to a US 12 (GASP!)- Or wearing clothes 2 or 3 sizes smaller, which is a complete NO, NO! It’s a market that still has a long way to go compared to most countries.

In Brazil, just by walking down the streets of various cities, you’ll see the majority of women do not look like Gisele Bundchen or Adriana Lima! Most women clearly wear sizes between 10 -18. It’s a huge physiological denial! They don’t want to be that way because the media portraits it to be wrong, ugly and unacceptable.

Society in Brazil makes you feel like wearing a size 16 jeans is a national crime. Most women have known nothing but negative criticism throughout their entire lives, from parents, school friends and even work colleagues. It’s the innocent suggestions of a new diet to a mentioning a new high tech plastic surgery procedure. Therefore they have yet to comprehend the meaning of being happy with yourself, regardless of your size.

I think she’s pretty, but really pushing on being obese.. There’s no happy medium. Either anorexia or obesity. How about some UK 12/14s?

laura
Guest

i completely agree they seem to promote both ends of the spectrum either unhealthy skinny or obses which they call curvy id say uk size 12 14 is curvy above is over weight and not healthy.

sarah

thats exactly my thoughs…i mean this new “plus size model thing” now is not really “normal” girls, and i hate to call anyone fat just because the word has become so ofensive instead of just an adjetive is now an insult, bot the girls they show are either too skinny or extra curvy, and none are healthy if its not your bone structure. I do think she needs to loose weight mostly in the lower part of her bode, she is a beautiful woman. but this is not healthy either, i hate that they cant find a middle point.

laura

exactly shes a pear shape so carrys it on her lower half it just cant be healthy at that size and isnt a good role model for young ure or woman in genral i dony under stand y people cant eat 3 healthy meals and exercise it isnt rocket science.

I don’t know, Laura, I’m just as miffed by that as I am by those who can’t type proper English. Why are you so concerned with the status of her health, anyway?

Lindsey
Guest
Lindsey

And just because you’re thin doesn’t mean you’re healthy. My co-worker is tiny – about 5’3” and barely 100lbs. Everyday for breakfast, lunch, and dinner she eats McDonalds, pizza, take-out, etc. She has never stepped foot inside a gym. I’m 5’7”, 160, eat healthy, and go to the gym when my schedule allows. So because I wear a 12 and she wears a 0, I’m the unhealthy one? I suppose I should puke my food to get down to that elusive size 2 and THEN I will be healthy!

laura
Guest
laura

omg u obviously didnt read my comment properly i said peviously that there shouldnt be the skinny models nor the over weight models there needs to be a healthy meduim not just for the models healths but for the people who look up to them they need to project a healthy life style.
p.s the proper english thing pathetic

Dee
Guest

I love your comment Lindsey. That is so true I had a co worker like that 5’3 and like 100 pounds ate Mc Donalds every day. Wandered why she was hungry I went off on her and said nothing you just ate had any nutrients, vitamins or minerals. Seemed like a no brainer. She is stunning she is gorgeous. Loved her!

She is Gorgeous! she has a wonderful build. She has wide hips bones if she was lost weight she would look sickly. As far as health I ride bicycles with women built like this. They can go 100 miles in 5 hours. No high blood pressure and eat very healthy. Skinny is not always = to healthy and certainly is not an auto qualifier for being sexy/attractive. Body weight index is far complex than weight versus height and is not a 100 percent predictor of future health.

She can’t just lose weight in the lower body. It has to come off all over, she will always be bottom heavy no matter what she weighs.

laura

i didnt say she should just lose it off the bottom half thats not possible but you can do exercise that work the bottom half more than the top like lunches running etc but she should lose weight to be healthy the weight shes at now shes not at a healthy weight

Well being a pear shape myself, I can honestly say the only thing that helps balance this type of figure is using weights to build the upper body.

Squats and lunges only increase the size of the buttocks and thighs plus cardio such as running, etc cannot spot reduce fat.

laura
Guest
laura

you just have to look at here to know shes unhealthy yeh she may do a bit of exersize but u dont get that big by eating health food ie veg, lean meas n grains etc its not healthy to be that size.

laura

im also pear shape and i do lunges etc n run and go swimming but i also work the upper body to and it does not make my lower half bigger it makes my lower half more toned and smaller

i think this is good. the “she’s not healthy” parade make out like fat people don’t deserve to wear nice clothes. and no it’s not personal- i’m a six. i just think that we should stop being so judgemental about other peoples health and just accept that everyone should be able to buy nice clothes and see models their size wearing them.

No, all fat people should wear plastic bags and big scarlet F’s on their chests!

I totally agree with you! And there are people on this site (and in general) who will claim that skinny women have to deal with just as much stigma and hardship, but that is simply not the case. The truth is that the Western is much more eager to accept skinny women than overweight ones, and there is plenty of objective evidence to support that claim (clothing choices, for one).

Jill
Guest
Jill

Personally I think if “skinny” is more accepted by the general public its because theres effort associated with being thin, even if its “too thin”. e.g. people obsessively monitoring what they eat, over-exercising etc. Its not really as much effort to sit in front of a TV shovelling pork pies is it?

jane
Guest

You’re absolutely right — it’s because Western society values the traits of discipline, restraint, hard work, and self-control, and those are all traits associated with thinness. Of course some lucky people are effortlessly thin and eat like pigs, and some fat people are very disciplined in every aspect of their life except their weight — but there is a definite correlation between thinness and Western virtues, even if it’s only a symbolic correlation.

I can relate to what she’s saying altho I wear size 4-6 US and 8-10 UK (sometimes 12). You will never believe the criticism I’ve received in my home country for my weight (which is a huge US products consumer, and that includes what US usually promotes the uber-skinny woman as a model). And shopping for jeans in my country is such a hassle all the time, because they only make leg widths for skinny people. When I’m there I feel pressured by the fashion industry to be a size 0-2 US (although I’ll only be that if I cut… Read more »

I think she has a memorable face and nice curves (yes, i mean curves, on top of being overweight of course). What she’s talking about, the discrimination, or snarky comments and stuff, i think it’s nobody’s business but the person in question. When it comes to models, and maybe “choosing” people to promote healthy lifestyle, i might have an opinion, usually i do, but in general, i don’t ever comment on people’s weight if they don’t bring up the subject themselves. I have overweight relatives and friends, and when i’m with them i don’t think about their weight, i’m no… Read more »

I can support larger models, but I don’t buy this girl. She’s way too big even for plus size and isn’t tall or exceptionally beautiful enough to justify it. Looks unhealthy to me.

Krystyna
Guest
Krystyna
You need to be exceptionally beautiful to justify being overweight as a model? I disagree. if the clothes look good on her, and they clearly do, then she is just as good as, if not better than a skinnier model, to demonstrate how clothes look on a person. And if she’s modelling for clothes targeted at women in these sizes, then I think it is a good idea that they use women of these sizes- is there really “way too big” for a plus sized model when they are selling clothes to women who may be even bigger? I don’t… Read more »

It’s as irresponsible and distasteful for a company to promote obesity as it is to promote unhealthy thinness. That woman is extremely overweight. We’re so used to seeing fat in our society that we’ve come to use the term “curvy” when we mean “morbidly obese”. It’s *really* depressing. We’re all just going to keep getting fatter.

laura
Guest

exactly they either use really unhealthy under weight models or the “normal size models” but what they call normal size isnt in REAL world doesnt mean that its a healthy size to be.
people seems to be getting bigger and the normal size seems to rise every few yrs.
we need to go bk to eating 3 meals a day and exercising and choc and crisps etc as a treat as they were meant to be.

Priscila

I am brazilian and I don’t know what she is talking about. Stores always have larger clothes, I’m a size 0 and never find clothes that fit me but my friends of her size do.
Also, here people prefer bigger women. Gisele and Adriana are the exception, our sex simbols are very big, Google “Scheila Carvalho” , “Mulher Melancia” , “Juliana Paes”.
She is pretty, but I did not like her when I saw her in a interview ….

Well, she might not be “big” but she’s certanly not skinny. Specially with that butt, her jeans size must be around brazilian 40 or 42, which I believe are usa 8 and 10.. correct me if I am wrong, please.

Rafaela

Rafaela

I`m also a Brazilian and I agree with Priscila. I`m size 0 as well and used to hate been skinny in Brazil. Not that I wanted to be fat, however, I wish I were more curvy. Well, but that`s me. I eat well and healthy, but I don`t gain weight. Here in the USA I learned to like my body and feel “hot”, because of the skinny obsession. Actually, seeing most of the Americans celebrities, I kind of fell good and not that thin.

@lidia – there is NO WAY she is a us 8 or 10. she is at least a us 14, probably a 16. maybe even 18 on bottom. she is beautiful and i love her confidence. but she’s not an 8 at all! her hip measurements are like 10 inches bigger than those of a us 8 (or EU40).

I live in Brazil too, and I agree with. I must add: there’s a lot of pressure on being PRETTY, but being not skinny. Brazilians like curves, that’s a FACT. Gisele and Adriana are the exeption.

That’s not plus size, that is just fat. Why can’t they find a middle ground? It is always either a size 0 or size 20 +, they’re both unhealthy.

I do not consider size 8 models to be ‘plus size’.

I also do not consider size 2 models to be average size.

I KNOW, right? I don’t want to be either, why can’t they embrace US sizes 4, 6, 8????? I don’t relate to this woman, and I don’t relate to size 0. I just want to see beautiful women who might be small pears or slightly older or any of those things, and still see them be appreciated! ACK.

Cecil
Guest

models aren’t supposed to be normal people… I always look at them like a caricature of average people, everything is exagerated.
Models have ridiculous bone structures to be able to be that tall and thin and on top of that they diet to be even thinner. Normal people don’t look like this and nor do they need to. It’s upsetting to see girls starving themselves but I don’t understand why any one looks at them as possible role models. It’s like looking at Jasmine from Aladdin and going “I wanna have a face and body like her!”… it’s just unrealistic.

i am a size 2 and i would like to be a size 4. I think this woman is pretty. But the fashion industry should stop promoting either too thin or too big. why can’t models be size 6-8. I mean they’re 5’9-6’0. That is just unhealthy being that tall and weigh 120 pounds. Almost every model who say that she is naturally thin is lying because they might be SLIM but not naturally a TOOTPICK which could fly away anytime.

I agree many people do not consider the models height when talking about their clothing size. Like these women are taller than average. I think for the height of 5’7-5’9, a clothing size of 6-12 is good when you factor in muscle, bone size, and body shape. I am a 4-6 but I feel fat because if these models are 2 at their height then at 5’2 I should be a zero.

I love her comment about the media’s “denial” of “plush-er” people by way of the extreme hotness of Brazilian models. Our media does the exact same thing – presenting us with ruler-wide-hipped models when our country is statistically 60% overweight or obese.
Different country, but same world. We need to find a median. This girl is GORGEOUS, but clearly overweight.
Smoking and being overweight are both things that are “legal”, but the health risks are significant. Is it possible that obesity is just as bad as smoking (from a “health” standpoint)?

You would believe it is the end of it, but I doubt it is since in the 1950s a 12 was the “perfect woman” (50s article point of view not mine). Just saying society’s opinions are constantly changing, so saying that plus size look worse is probably you speaking because of current society.

Curves on that lady!!! I agree that more emphasis should be placed on being a HEALTHY size, rather than either anorexic or obese, however, this woman is obviously not meant to be rake thin and if anything I’ll go out on a limb and say that she could be one of these people who are naturally large and NOT actually unhealthy (yes, they do exist, you know; they’re called ENDOMORPHS).

I dont think models this big “promotes obesit”y in any way, I think everyone can se perfectly clear that this is not the most healthy size, and I don’t think that skinny 14-year old girls suddenly will indulge in hamburgerdiets because of it.

I think she’s obese but that doesnt mean she shouldnt be allowed to model – plus sized models need to exist because there is a market for it – many people are overweight and whether someone is thin/fat/short/tall they should be allowed to buy and wear clothes that they will enjoy.

Well she is modeling clothes for a size 16 not 6, 8, or 10. It really doesn’t matter if you think she’s hot or overweight or unhealthy. Clearly you are not the market for these clothes.

she is si beautiful, but so overweight, too. however, it is her body, she has all rights to do whatever she wants with it. but is she wants to be a role model and if she doesnt want to cause even more harm to body image of the women of today than Twiggy, Kate Moss and other skinny models did, then she should start taking care of her self.

I’m so tired of plus sized models. Every single magazine has been moving in this direction and it’s getting ridiculous. I don’t enjoy looking at plus sized models. I know there are a very small handful of cases where people have medical conditions that cause them to be overweight but for the most case, the people I know that are overweight are that way because they EAT TOO MUCH and DON’T EXERCISE enough. Too much soda, juice, ice cream, portions that are much too large and not enough focus on activity. Not even just exercise, but general activity is important.… Read more »

Don’t think that’s the point. You can do sports and still have that weight. Thinner doesn’t mean more healty. There are studies showing that a bit of more weight doesn’t mean that your body is in a bad shape. Having that kind of fat at hips and bottom doesn’t influence your health!!! Nothing to do with cholerine etc. And I must say I’m a bit tired of this anti-plus-size comments. Think they are still rare and most models are way to thin.

Shes a very pretty lady and very clever too it would seem, which is nice and refreshing. She should probably be careful not to get too much heavier though because it might be bad for her health to do so. Its weird that we have to have ‘plus size’ models…..surely it should just be regular size people, not this massive extreme from anorexic to obese…and no inbetweeners!! It kinds of makes me think the inbetweeners/ normal/ average size woman kind of gets left out a bit!

I disagree with many things she said! brazilians are not into the skinny thing, the beauties here are bigger than americans.

Oh, her face kinda looks like Charlize Theron (if she put on weight)! I think she’s got a pretty face, but to me, that kinda body doesn’t scream health… it screams I eat too much and don’t exercise enough. She does not look at a heaalthy weight, but very much overweight (and no, I don’t have a problem with ‘bigger’ or ‘curvier’, I just don’t like it when being overweight is advertised as a good thing as long as you’re happy!).

Peg

Such a beautiful face and such beautiful skin. The head shot of her reminds me of 70’s retro Charlie’s Angels. I olook at these pictures and I think, “good for her” and “I feel good about myself”. To think such things I believe I see her as a positive role model.

My aunt has is smaller than this and her doctor told her she needs to change her diet or she is going to have a heart attack. I don’t think she is obese but for sure she is overweight and her heart is probably suffering! She is beautiful but you can be curvy and pretty – this is a little much – I agree with everyone who said it was too far in the other direction. Honestly… this is kind of an insult.

Yeah. Like I said in my other comment, why do people dismiss diet and exercise? Because they don’t pay attention to it? My dad had a heart attack and was diagnosed w/ diabetes. The first thing he was told was to lose weight and start eating better. They didn’t ask him to be the way he was at 20, just to get in better physical shape. his heart attack was a direct result of carrying too much weight.

OMG! I’m so sorry! 🙁 Its very true hon. It’s more common and just as dangerous as being vastly underweight.

These comments are beginning to make me sick. Seriously, girls, get a grip. There is a level of healthy that spans from being very slender, to being quite big, and its ALL NATURAL VARIATION. The BMI is not king. Being perfectly thin is not an ultimate goal everyone should strive for. The things that hurt you when youre fat ALSO hurt you when youre thin. Like, eating crap and not moving at all. Smoking, drug taking, drinking, overexercising are ALL dangerous things that many celebrities do but you don’t see us crying blue murder over a picture of a celebrity… Read more »

Your second-last statement is too broad and negates what you said about not basing health on BMI, Low BMI as a result of malnutrition, either calorically or nutritionally decreases bone density and raises risk of osteoporosis. But being thin as a result of a good, varied diet and exercise isn’t a sin. Strength training actually increases bone density. You can’t assume that everyone who works out does it obsessively to lose weight. Wouldn’t that be just as bad as saying every fat person goes home and chows down on chips all night? BMI isn’t a final indicator of health, it… Read more »

I use the bmi because its what people seem to understand. you will note, i didnt say it was completely useless, I said it was not king. Its failiures lie in its inability to measure bone density and muscle to fat ratio. Its just taking a height and dividing it by a weight to get a number, which is set against a scale of averages set up in the 19th century. It was never, ever meant to be a diagnostic tool, only a statistical one. Also, a ‘healthy’ (aka ‘average’) BMI used to be between 20-27, until 1997 when they… Read more »

It’s true that being healthy doesn’t exempt you from disease. And no, risks don’t magically disappear once you’re over/under a certain weight, but that wasn’t what I said. My point was that there’s LESS risk IF you are within a healthy range – not underweight or overweight by a large amount – and eat well and exercise. Those are proven. Why, after my dad had a heart attack, did they tell him to overhaul his diet and start exercising? His poor health habits lead to something serious. They wanted to prevent anything like that from happening again, and that was… Read more »

apricotmuffins, I agree with many of your points but I do think you have overlooked a few things. The reason we don’t hear about plus size models having heart attacks is because even the ones that are ‘fat’ are nowhere near being overweight to the point that they are in a real danger zone whereas the models that die of anorexia are so I don’t believe that is evidence that being underweight is worse than being overweight. The fact is that even the very plus size models are only ‘model fat’. We talk about health etc and that is true… Read more »

I am sorry to say this but she is “fat” this is not promoting a healthy lifestyle. I do not think that showing pics of woman like this to make other woman of the same proportions feel more accepted is exactly the right thing to do. Show people like Drew Barrymore, Kate Winslet, Jenifer Hudson, etc. Healthy, curvy, fit and it’s very obvious that they take care of themselves without obessing or starvation or other weird master cleanses etc. This “model” obviously doesn’t take care of herself. To quote Gweneth Paltrow “anyone can make their body look the way they… Read more »

yeah, any one can make their body “the way they want it” but what if they arent like you and don’t want a body that looks like that? not everyone does, and not every man does for that matter. who are you to say that everyone should want to make their body the way that you or gweneth paltrow do?

hm… ok i am a size two ( and 5’2”) but am still not completely comfortable with my body. This is clearly a gorgeous woman no matter what anyone says on this board. she may be heavier than most “brazilian models” we are used to but can anyone seriously say that this woman is not absolutely beautiful? she is absolutely one of the most beautiful ppl i have ever seen, thank you for giving her some air time. All the haters can suck it, u r all jealous bc no matter how skinny you get you can never be that… Read more »

wasnt saying that you should want to look like gweneth paltrow, i certainly do not. but putting a healthy effort into your body and your health is very important. and when this woman obviously puts very little emphasis on her health… i think it’s unattractive. if you look back to my comment i was also saying some very beautiful, attractive woman like jenifer hudson should be more of a role model than these “plus size models” my comment was not meant to start an arguement. It was just a comment on health.

Her proportions are insane…like a caricature! I don’t like the way she looks. She screams “TRASHY” and “GHETTO” to me(that has nothing to do with her weight, btw)!

I want to see a normal sized girl.
Period.
The end.
Not someone who’s hip bones & ribs can grate cheese.
And not someone who has a stomach roll that sits on top of her hips. I’m glad she loves herself and stuff, but I want to see a NORMAL person! My god! A size 4-8 would be GREAT! I want to see someone average! Not scary thin, or like borderline overweight. Its like two extremes.
I want the middle. Someone give me the middle? Please?

Yes! As a curvy (and yes I actually do mean curvy here, good waist/bust/hip ratio) size 6-8 I never see girls my size in magazines, and I think there are more average people like me than very overweight and very underweight girls.
It’s alienating to never see your size in the media, whether your size is a 20 or a 6.

Actually there are more 12s and 14s than 6s and 8s, so you’re not the average exactly.
