Fashion is a capricious girl, she manages to touch on every aspect of human life, be it a dress or a shawl, home furniture or a houseplant.
Everything is subject to its quirks, including the female figure: once upon a time, men wouldn’t even look at flat and anorexic girls like those that are walking on world catwalks, finding it at least uninteresting, and at most ugly.
Each century makes its own adjustments and, if in the early 2000s, plus-size girls could not even dream of a model future, today the situation has changed a lot.
Lush forms and very feminine hips more and more often inspire young and sometimes experienced eminent fashion designers. The annoying “hangers” are increasingly being replaced by juicy and mouth-watering plus-sized beauties who are ready to prove that they are no worse than, and in some ways, better, their skinny colleagues.
At the moment, there are large model agencies with which a large number of plus-size models cooperate and, I would like to note, these girls are in great demand and have already gained considerable popularity in their circles. Today we will talk about the most famous among them.
1. Whitney Thompson.
To a large extent, this blonde beauty is known for winning first place in the 10th season of the popular show “Top Model in American”. She confidently furnished all her slim and “standard” rivals for two accounts, after which she received a contract with the famous model agency Elite Model.
Today, the model continues to actively appear in advertising: represents the Diana Warner jewelry collection, is the face of many brands of clothing and accessories, represents a dental company, and is also actively removed for the covers of popular glossy publications.
The girl spends a lot of time talking to other young persons about a healthy body and nutrition, and is also a representative of the Nutritional Behavior Disorders.
2. Tokkara Jones.
Another participant of the show “Top Model in American”, which, in spite of its “plus” volumes, remained a model of the week for a long time and was a serious competitor to its rivals. Unfortunately, in the show Tokkara failed to win, but this is not the main thing, because she was able to prove that beauty is not only world standards, which are expressed in blue eyes, light skin and parameters “90-60-90”.
After the show, Tokkara was spotted by one of the model agencies that work with plus-size models, after which she began to appear on the covers of popular fashion magazines, participate in fashion shows for the full, and also began to try herself on television as a correspondent and presenter.
3. Kate Dillon.
With a growth of 180 cm, Kate weighs 81 kg, but at the same time she does not cease to be incredibly feminine and attractive. Once she successfully worked as a skinny model, but because of constant diets and the almost absence of any kind of food, the girl became ill and was hospitalized with a serious diagnosis.
It was a kind of point of no return, after which Kate ended up with diets, began to lead a correct and enjoyable lifestyle for herself, but at the same time, she did not part with the modeling business. Today, she collaborates with most popular fashion magazines, as well as advertising brands such as L’Oreal Cosmetics, Gucci, Elena Miro and others.
4. Ashley Graham.
An attractive British woman in her 26 years has already achieved a lot in the modeling business, and this is with her 58 size clothes! Ashley has a lush and appetizing form, thanks to which she has already become the face of the model agency Ford, has concluded numerous contracts with other companies, and also periodically appears on the covers of such popular publications as Glamor, Vogue, Latina and others.
5. Sophie Dahl.
She is often called a mystery woman, a fairytale woman with a doll face and eyes like two oceans. Sophie is an English fashion model and actress who, at the invitation of Yves Saint Laurent, appeared in the well-known and provocative advertising company for the perfume Opium.
Sophie, with her height of 180 cm and weight of 80 kg, was shot for such glossy publications as Elle, Vogue, Haspers Bazaar and many others, and also became an active participant in the movement against excessively thin models, eventually becoming his face.
Surprisingly, in spite of this, the girl herself, after a while, rapidly lost 30 kg, but this did not lose anything, but continued her career.
6. Crystal Rennes.
Like many girls in the modeling business, Crystal began her ascent to the 14-year-old skinny girl, but the consequences of heavy diets and restrictions did their job: a lot of diseases related to the digestive tract led not only to serious health problems, but also to the loss of her career model .
However, Crystal did not give up, over time, gaining weight, she acquired lush and sensual forms, thanks to which she began to promote herself as a plus-size model. And I must say, she did it very well: today she is the highest paid model with full forms. However, today it cannot be called such, since Krystal lost weight again to 42-44 size.
7. Tara Lynn.
Tara became popular only at the age of 28, after being shot for the cover of the French magazine Elle. Today, model 32, it has a very solid size: with an increase of 170 cm parameters are "110-86-120", but it remains one of the most beautiful women in the world, and is also a very popular model in its segment.
The most popular representatives of the form size plus
To be a "plus-size" model, it is not enough just to come to the agency and leave there your data and portfolio. As well as all over the world of show business, there is a big competition for a place in the sun.
Each advertising agency has its favorites, each designer also chooses his own type.
There are a lot of models with magnificent forms, but not everyone has managed to achieve real success. Let's get acquainted with the brightest and most successful representatives of such non-standard sizes. How are they so different from their fellow models?
Judoksi Yao - the most interesting "non-standard"
The African plus size model, which we know as Judoksi Yao, is the most interesting representative of the lush models.
Her main advantage - remarkable buttocks and thighs. The most interesting thing is that with big breasts and prominent hips, Yudoksi has a thin waist. This figure gives the girl a very feminine look.
Plus size model Yudoksi Yao says that she is the owner of the biggest priests in all of West Africa where she came from. Looking at her photo, you can not accept this fact.
Judoksi never complexed about her figure, on the contrary, she was proud of her, which caused envy of the girls of the same age, whom nature did not reward with such forms. This woman does not hide her immense forms, she emphasizes them in every possible way, preferring tight and bright clothes.
Now Yao is one of the most sought-after models, she is a favorite guest at social events and parties. Many advertising agencies are ready to tear each other for the right to get the model in their own hands.
When Judoksi began to gain popularity, she began to discuss it in social networks. There were people who claimed that her photo was the result of work in Photoshop, it was allegedly impossible to have such magnificent forms with such a thin waist.
The size plus models, whose photos are consistently photoshoot by social network users, in order to prove to everyone that they are really just fat, are used to not paying attention to such attacks of envious people.
Ashley Graham, in which no one believed
Getting into a model agency has always been difficult, even in the plus size model. Model Ashley Graham, having become a star in the model world, was able to prove not only to herself, but also to many other people that fat women can be sought-after models.
Unlike Yudoksi Yao, Ashley has been complexed since childhood because of large volumes. These complexes developed more and more from the mockery of classmates, the parents also did not forget to remind their daughter that she was complete.
Once Ashley publicly declared that one day she would become the most popular model. Of course, the girl herself didn’t believe in that, but she wanted to stop laughing at her. This statement did not knock off classmates arrogance, it only podzadorilo children even more morally destroy the complete girl.
Once Graham wandered through the supermarket, looking at the windows. On the same day, an agent from a modeling agency walked through the same supermarket, his eyes were attracted by a pretty, curvaceous girl - Ashley. He approached her and invited her to test shooting at his agency.
At this point, Ashley was only 12 years old, but by the age of 14 she became a star advertising clothes in a fashionable teen magazine.
To date, photos of Ashley Graham are printed in the most popular magazines - "Glamor", "Ell" and other similar. Ashley mostly advertises underwear for obese women, she became the creator of her own line of underwear.

Fashion has two standards
Today everything is mixed up and people are divided into several opinions. Someone for a slim and tiny body, and some, on the contrary, for appetizing forms. And this is a matter for everyone, as long as everything is in moderation. Naturally, the rising skeleton from under the skin, or a 200-kilogram girl with many folds, is not very attractive and should not go to extremes.
Little about fashion
Modern fashion, in addition to the standard models with tall and slim body, shows the appearance of full girls. They are called Size plus models, they have a lush chest, hips, rounded tummy, and it is beautiful. They are showing clothes for ordinary women on the catwalk who don’t starve themselves with diets, or they just physiologically cannot have miniature sizes and shapes. Plus size models are also involved in the Curves photo project, and not only here. Many fashion photographers prefer to shoot models in a magnificent body and see more beautiful in them than in thin ladies.
How to determine the model: plus size (Size plus)
A model of large size can be a girl who has a height of 170 centimeters, a beautiful and pleasant appearance, proportional to the part of the body. But in volume it can be more than 90x60x90, within reasonable limits, her clothing size should be from 42 to 54.
