All sizes covered: Mia Freeman of the Sydney Morning Herald shares, "The number of plus-size models in the modelling world is inversely proportional to the number of size-10-plus women in the real world. Somehow, the fashion industry has recalibrated "average" to mean "tall and extremely slim", evidenced by the fact that the sample-size garments supplied to magazines for photo shoots are a "standard" size 6 to 8. Never bigger. No wonder plus-size models (that's size 10 plus) are forced to wander around fashion shoots naked or in their underwear."
