Speaking as someone who used to work in the business, many many years ago, there is a reason why all fashion models are thin and “Unique” looking or but ugly as we used to say in the none politically correct days.

They are thin because the designers can not design clothes that look good on larger models, but they are happy for the larger customer to not look good in their clothes, and the models are “Unique” looking so that the punter would rather look at the design than be distracted by an attractive model. The where the odd exception but that was often more to do with who the model in question was sleeping with, and they where often called “Super Models”.


Paul, I think you are right yet it pains me to say it.

My Mum has been saying this for years. My Mum could not have been a model as she is a tiny wee thing of about 5′ 1″ (on a good day) but she was the spitting image of Shirley MacLaine. We women have curves for a reason so I simply don’t understand why so many of us make ourselves miserable and unhealthy to get rid of them. I like my curves even though I will never look good in ‘designer’ clothes. Besides which, I could never afford them!
