What do you think about this?

Now they have plus size models, how do you feel about them advertising clothes on models the size you select?

I'm a bigger lady now. I don't exactly wear plus size but I also don't fit size 6.
It would be nice to see a lady in a size 12/14 frame in some of the clothes.
Especially since a size 6 girl isnt going to have the little belly pouch, and the lady size 18/22, isn't really where I'm at.

I think we need some middle ground here.

How do you feel about this?

It's okay. People of all sizes need clothes so why not.

I haven't been a size nine since high school, so I feel your pain...😉. I shop online for the most part, and I've noticed that the photos go from reed thin models to thunder thighs for the plus models.

I feel that the really fat models are not doing their company a service. Perhaps the photos are representative of how fat women will REALLY look wearing their clothing...and that would be a reality slap. I would imagine sales have slipped.

I agree with this 100% - I have said before it goes from small to massive and no inbetween!
Gangstress · 36-40, F

I think larger size women need larger size models. When you are a size 20 you don't want to see a size 2 model.

I think it's a good idea.
Giving the consumer a better idea of how they will look in the clothes, might help avoid frightened children in the Walmart aisles.

Just get a little machine learning shenanigans working and you'll eventually have a system where you'll upload a photo of yourself and see what it looks like with you wearing it.

I'm sure this can already be done. No need for models at all, really. Issue is how to make it convenient.
Mellowgirl · 26-30, F
[@373024,DDonde] as a man you're clearly unaware.
DDonde · 31-35, M
[@1196310,Mellowgirl] That's probably true.
Don't write it off yet though
Mellowgirl · 26-30, F
[@373024,DDonde] they do that with glasses and it's still not right. It never fits your face as it should even with the resizing features.

I think it is just fine. Large clothes would look awfully strange on theses "heroin chic" models that seem to be popular these days.
Mellowgirl · 26-30, F
[@615618,Oberon1] no a lot of people just buy clothes because it's in their size but if they are fashion conscious and style savvy they're able to pick pieces within a trend to suit their body.
And that's based upon the way something is cut and styled, shape and colour. It's not one for all. Even if they're trying to make it appear that way.
That's why for years black girls would complain about the mini skirt having a fuller figure and curves a shorter length has further to go to cover certain areas where as a woman with no curve in her lower back or fullness in the lower regions means the clothes just hang...

[@387713,4meAndyou] it's ridiculous isn't it. Honestly it's a minefield
4meAndyou · F
[@1196310,Mellowgirl] Years of experience needed! 🤣

I am against fat-*shaming*, but now we are fat-*promoting*/-*encouraging*. We ought to be able to acquire comfortabke clothes, but also be encouraged to improve/maintain our health.

What Plus Sized Models? She looks fine to me.

Being 1 kilo away from an eating disorder isn't sexy to me at all. A Confident Smile and outlook on a woman. Now that's sexy.
Mellowgirl · 26-30, F
[@622125,Thevy29] Well for the purposes of the post and the fact they categorise the shapely woman as 'curve' she would be considered plus sized.
Ksmile14 · F
That would be really useful I think.
lost213 · 41-45, M
Definitely agree
Virgo79 · 56-60, M
Great idea
