"Size 6 Is Plus Size." Right. They Don't Mention VANITY SIZING
Circulating the headlines today: Size 6 Is Plus Size (for models):
Plus-size models have shrunk, too. A decade ago, plus-size models averaged between size 12 and size 18. Today, the majority of plus-size models an agency boards are between size 6 and size 14, the magazine said, based on its own research.
There was no mention of vanity sizing, so the alarmist declaration of shrinking plus-size models is inaccurate unless they use reliable metrics like actual measurements of the models.
