2. Larger but Unusually Proportional Bodies

Another trick in the plus-size modeling playbook is the “larger but unusually proportional” model. I don’t know about you, but most women really run two sizes—say a size 8 on top and a 12 on bottom. That’s reality.

A woman who’s a perfect-off-the-rack size 12 (top and bottom) is somewhat of an anomaly.

The fault may lie with fashion designers. They’re already apparently grouchy about designing clothes that flatter larger figures. (What? Do they think they are saving on material?) But the effort needed to formulate flattering clothing for us mixed-size women is seemingly beyond them.
