Size 6 becomes plus size in today's fashion world
Runway models are getting thinner with most of them meeting the physical criteria for anorexia, according to a report.
Plus model magazine has said that size 6 has now become plus size in the fashion world.
The magazine has come up with an appalling report in its January issue, offering shocking insight into the disparity between models and the real-life women they are purporting to represent.
The latest issue has plus size model Katya Zharkova and a straight size model in the nude in an attempt to open the minds of the fashion industry, which is stepping further away from reality, according to Plus founder and editor-in-chief, Madeline Figueroa Jones, Fox News reported.
The magazine has revealed that some of today's plus size models are sporting the same size as models Christie Brinkley, Paulina Porizkova and Cindy Crawford at the height of their fame in the 1990s.
The 28-year-ol Zharkova wears a size 14.
The photographs appear alongside statistics about today's sometimes dangerously thin straight size models and the continuously shrinking frames of plus size models.
One of the revelations made in the magazine is that twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8 percent less than the average woman.
