Yonkers, NY, June 10, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- Even though many magazines and popular TV shows still showcase overtly thin women’s physiques as ideal, more and more fashion designers are embracing women of all sizes by creating plus-sized apparel to fit larger women. Looking back to the advertising campaigns of the 40’s and 50’s in America, most of the women featured were ‘realistic’ with voluptuous curves, including large breasts and ample hips. It seems that over time, society has evolved to feature women in an unrealistic world of super thin ethos, with expectations that only women who are super thin should be considered sexy.
Yet, throughout the last decade that attitude is slowly changing. Many popular magazines like Vogue and Glamour have become wise to the huge earning potential of the plus size market, as well as the need to appeal to women of all body types. According to many top modeling agencies, such as the Ford Modeling Agency and Hughes Models of the UK; the only differentiation for female plus-sized models are the proportions of the bust/waist/hip measurements.1 Other traits such as face, hair and skin requirements remain the same.
This is refreshing news to the millions of women who do not fall in line with the ‘super thin’ body type and attitude. In fact, according to the ‘Full and Fabulous’ statistics2, the average sized American woman is about a size 14, whereas the ideal body type like those portrayed by beauty pageants is approximately a size 8.
