I found this article and during reading it found that the average plus size model is a size 6. Really? um ... I haven't been a size 6 since probably 3rd grade.  Here is the article:

What do you think?

Unbelievable!!! Plus-size clothing starts at size 6? When I was younger, clothing started at size 6! Robyn Lawley being a size 16 doesn't really help matters, as she's 6'2". Why shouldn't she feel proud? Size 16 on someone 5'4" wouldn't be quite the same now would it? No wonder people have body image issues!

I think... HOGWASH! LOL

I've stopped looking at sizes as an indicator of my image and just started focusing on being healthy and fit and buying clothes that flatter my body. :smileytongue:
