They are not plus sized for our everyday life, where the average American woman is a size 14. However, in model sizing, - compared to size 0 (at most) - they are on the "plus" side. And since they are models, they are gauged by those standards. It's not an insult.

What is the "big statement about body image"? The connection between body size and self worth? A woman should feel "moxie," "happy," "sass" in any size

The women in red looks better than any of today's so-called "supermodels" and can be my next wife.
Honestly, who am I supposed to prefer to see in ads, her or a stick insect? I think we know the answer.

Are you kidding me? When I think of plus size, I think okay maybe something over 14. This woman is NOT a plus size! Geez, just because she's not a size 2 doesn't make her plus!

Clothes ran smaller in the 50s than they do now. Marilyn's size 14 would probably be the equivalent of today's 8-10. It's called vanity sizing.

They talk about the "plus size" models and then show this 'normal weight' woman in a red suit. Honestly, nowadays, sizes 12 and 14 are really NOT plus size and I wish they would stop referring to them as such. Heck, I wouldn't even consider size 16 a plus size, but... women are suppose to have curves, be curvy.... its time society stopped making women feel bad or 'unattractive' for having them!

Not many men are into skinny women who look like teenage boys.
08:00 PM on 06/15/2012
Yep... look at Marilyn Monroe - she was loved and adored by many (including men) and she was a size 14 ... that would be considered plus-sized now. Look at Beyonce, Queen Latifah... many others ... all plus-size and they are BEAUTIFUL. I wish society would stop equating plus-sized (overweight) with ugly/unattractive/unwanted/unlovable (not to mention stupid and more). As a plus size woman, I've gotten all of those adjectives thrown at me just because of my weight... and it hurts.

that size 14 would be a smaller size in modern times.
09:58 PM on 06/15/2012
Marilyn was a 14??!! Who'd a thunk it?! Maybe society should stop equating plus-sized with overweight. There seems to be a difference!

She wasn't. See above. Monroe was 5'5" and weighed 118-125 pounds. Probably a 6 or 8 in the sizing system of her time. Not a 14 .

Red suit is NOT plus sized, she looks quite normal and healthy actually.
07:39 PM on 06/15/2012
That's exactly right! On what planet is she considered plus size?

Special K, you're not doing women any favors. The woman in the red bathing suit looks like she's maybe a size 8 or 10. She does not look plus-sized.

The one in the red one piece looks yummy.

Who doesn't get a little breathless when they see Tara Lynn? Oh, but Crystal Renn lost all her weight and looks terrible!

FASHION DESIGNERS: "Ladies, you must be below size 4 if you want to be considered attractive and desirable."

STUPID AND GULLIBLE WOMEN/MEN: "Uh derrr... okay. If you say so."

Sorry, fashion designers, but I have a brain and can think for myself, thank you very much. Size 0-2 if fine for a child, not for a fully-developed woman. Sofia Vergara would be laughed out of the typical "fashion designer's" office as being "plus-sized." What does that tell you?
05:52 PM on 06/15/2012
saying stuff like "size 0-2 is fine for a child, not a fully-developed women." is just hypocritical. Just because you are less than a size four does not mean you are "stupid or gullible".
The same goes for if you're a size 12, 14, 7, 22, etc.
Everyone is beautiful no matter what size.

How about we stop putting down others because of their size and just accept everyone!?

"Just because you are less than a size four does not mean you are "stupid or gullible". "

You called that right. I know a woman who was asked, "You don't even weigh a hundred pounds, do you?" She said, "No, but I got up to 86 pounds when I was pregnant." This woman has a beautiful, curvy woman's body in miniature. I haven't weighed 86 pounds since grade school but my friend and I are both fine.
