I agree with most posters that the models aren't Plus Size girls. They are basically the same size as the supermodels of the 80s. Look back at swim suit pics of Cindy Crawford, same size. Healthy and pretty. I think that the designer was doing smart marketing by using models that aren't truly plus sized.

I guess that goes to show that large size was nothing more than a fad for the fashionistas.

Thin is the new fat.

As someone who travels around the world quite regularly i would say that some of these Models are "normal" while others are definitely plus size.

The obesity rate for Americans have risen from 15 percent to 30 percent in the last twenty years. This is enabled by many Americans attitude that being fat is "normal". Well, it maybe normal in the us but it's definitely not normal in other parts of the world.

And is goes beyond physical beauty. Being thin doesn't mean you are malnutritioned. Talk to any honest doctor and they will tell you that being fat is much worse for your health than being thin. Obesity is an epidemic in America and one of the reasons why the healthcare costs are so high.

I agree that our (Americans') perception of what is normal is seriously skewed. Sad, sad, SAD confession, I was watching the Dukes of Hazzard (80s rerun) the other night (channel surfing gone wrong) and saw Boss Hogg...Holy cow, when I was a little kid, I thought he was the fattest man ever. By today's standard, he looks petite plump!

Okay, no, these are not "plus sized" women, they're normal women. But can we please please please give the fashion industry a beak for five seconds? They're finally acknowledging body shapes other than incredibly skinny. Good!! Yeah, they need to work on their terminology, but honestly, if we don't give them any credit for this step they're gonna take it back and forget about it altogether.

These models look fantastic, the clothes look great, I'm delighted.

The fasion industry doesn't use models over a size 2... At 6' tall a size 2 is scary. The average size of the American Woman is 14.... these woman definitely were in the size 6,8 range...
Plus size? No. Normal? Yes!

I'm 25, 5'4" and 145 lbs. I'm the size of these women. The clothes are beautiful. But I really wish that the fashion world would just stop with the sizes....I'm not plus sized....I'm healthy sized. I like to eat and be active....I love my curves....the fashion industry should too.

These are just normal women and not the toothpick women that the Vogue set think are normal.

Plus-sized? The women in those pictures aren't plus-siaed, they just aren't skinny.

True, but this is pretty big for the fashion industry, as you barely ever even see average-sized women on catwalks.

Instead of showing only "normal" or "plus-sized" women for each show, why not mix it up? Show women of varying sizes walk down that runway instead of picking either/or. IMO, a true fashion designer can make anyone look fabulous regardless of his/her size.
