  1. I think they're biting the hands who feed them. I'm sorry but I don't think these models are curvy, I think they are overweight and that it is not healthy to be that way and to promote being overweight as body type. I do think they are beautiful but I don't think it's healthy.

    1. I don't mind that they want to be called something different, however I don't think generally use the term 'plus-size' in a condescending way. If anything I think that it is a way for a designer to know what to expect before meeting with a model who they haven't met yet. Most people when they talk about models still think about the conventional skinny model, so the terms plus-size, fit-model, commercial- model helps the designer or general public to be aware of what to expect.
