Full-Figure Fashion?



By now, you've probably heard that the winner of this season's America's Next Top Model is a full-figured model. 20-year-old Whitney Thompson beat 13 skinny chicks to win a contract with Elite Model Management, a $100,000 Cover Girl contract, and a six-page spread in Seventeen magazine. Now ABCNews is asking, are Skinny Models Out, Plus-Size In? But already many are questioning whether the size 8/10 beauty really is full-figured or plus-size, since the average American woman is reportedly a size 14. What do you think?

I hate when they do that. A size 8/10 is NOT full-figured.

If 8/10 is full-figured, why isn't it with the rest of the "women" sizes that start at 14??

If the average American woman is a size 14, size 14 should be called "average" and any size above that should be called full-figured (like size 16 or 18)or plus-size (like 20, 24, 26). It is funny that size 8/10 could possibly be considered anything but small. Actually if 14 is average, 16 should be called large. It's so crazy! - Mrs. Johnson, California

I feel plus size should start from 14.

Being able to find fashions that are appealing and proportioned for a full figured woman...should be as easy to access as clothing for a woman that is petite and small framed. They finally figured out that, they were actually losing a huge piece of the financial pie because of their pigeon-holed focus.
