At last, plus-size fashion isn't relegated to one mere show. This week in Paris, Pulp Fashion Week celebrated runway models with the closest bodies we've seen to real-world women, well, ever.

Sponsored by Histoire de Courbes, a French group whose sole goal is to celebrate womens' curves, the showcase represents French designers and brands including La Belle Affranchie, Maryse Richardson, Tika Soomak, Tamboo Bamboo and Femme Fabuleuses and has partnered with respectable retailers with stylish plus-size merch like Forever 21 and Asos Curve. The designer collections presented are available in European sizes ranging from 40 to 54 (American equivalents 6 to 20).

The fashion industry typically defines "plus-size models" as women like Robyn Lawley who are only slightly bigger than a sample size. Since 57 percent of American women report buying clothing in sizes 16 or larger, we have a feeling some might be able to relate better to Pulp's models than to any others out there.
