Here’s a question from CoColicious reader Ali regarding “plus-size” models:

Hi NettaP!

Plus size models? What do you think about the controversy regarding the plus size models at London fashion week? (UK sizes 10-14 = US sizes 8-12) I am disgusted that they are labelled "plus size models" rather than"normal healthy women" - what do you think?

Thanks Ali

Our fashionista Netta P responds:

Hey Ali,

Plus size models in the US are also usually size 8-12. I would like to see models of all sizes, especially if the clothing is meant for a plus size body, because I want to know what the clothes will look like on me. That being said, most plus size models that really are plus size usually also have large busts, and I don't have that, and I'm not holding my breath that I'll EVER see a plus size model with anything less than a double d cup size. But that's a story for another day. I don't think that women who are an 8-12 should be referred to as "plus size" if they're not because that's just not accurate, but, then again, I'm glad to see that models that are larger than a size 0-2 are being used on a runway anywhere. So, in short, baby steps!
