Was gratified to find this today on pinupgirlclothing.
Here’s the thing. While plus-sized modelling is pretty rad when it comes to having models beyond straight sizes, it can be limiting in of itself. Like the straight size modelling world, it has its hangups on mostly using white models, especially those of the lighter coloring variety.
And believe it or not, the plus size world can be pretty sizeist too. The models are often just size sixteen, rarely beyond a size twenty. Not to mention that the sizeism in the straight size modelling world is so bad that models you would never think were plus-size do work as plus size models, leaving the actual ones with less of a job. There are plus size models that are size tens, twelves, and even smaller than that.
And let’s talk body shape. The plus size world seems to only go for models with hardly to no double chin at all. They can be a small-size fat girl, but they have to be hourglass shaped it seems. They can be heavy in the ass and breasts but the belly? Absolutely not.
So seeing this black model, who isn’t an hourglass shape, this is fucking sweet for me.
EDIT: Just a note. I’m an American, so whatever sizes I speak about above, be aware I’m speaking about U.S. sizes.
