Plus Size? Puh-lease!
October 9, 2007
So this is just out of Milan. Apparently there was a “plus-sized” model strutting down the Prada runway during the Spring 2008 show. You can judge for yourself, though.
There’s nothing that says plus-size about this woman, except that maybe she doesn’t wear a negative A bra cup. I keep going back and forth on whether or not to be insulted because this woman is obviously quite slim, but then I remember we’re working with the fashion industry here and this may actually be progress. Scary thin models are no new phenomenon, so if this is Miuccia Prada’s attempt at pushing healthier body images, I really can’t fault her.
I do have on small request, though. Let’s be honest with ourselves: this woman is not plus-sized. She’s barely average in my opinion.
For all the truly plus-sized ladies out there, this one’s for you. Enjoy these fab finds:
