Everyone's talking about the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition, like we do every year. But there's one new TWIST this year: There's a plus-sized bikini model in an ad in the 2015 issue. Ashley Graham.
The demand for plus sized models may be dwindling in size requirements, but there will always be a demand for plus sized models because there are plus sized people, and more than 50% of American women are size 14 and up. Positively... there are so many beautiful aspects of plus sized women. And, as an interesting experiment, A plus sized model, in the past, was a size 10-12 -- up to a size 18 for fashion. Now, they are calling a size 8 - plus sized Some people are even calling Drew Barrymore a plus size, because she is a 6.
For catalog work, specifically, they will use a size 8 because they think size 14 and 16 will relate to that person and size 4 and size 6 will relate to that person. They do not use size 18 as much as they should for print -- though... size 18 makes the most money.

Brazilian society is wrongly framed in an aesthetic value where bodies that do not measure up to our roots and mingling. Our job is to search for real beauty, Brazilians who accepts with its voluptuous curves inherited the empire and its races mixtures.
