    Because she is NOT a size 2! Anything over a size 8 or 10 is considered plus size in the modeling world. Gives todays young women a terrible message and unrealistic standards.

    she is definitely not a plus size!! please what a joke! What message re they trying to relay to our women?

  • Cathy

    I don’t think it should start counting as “plus” until you have to “add” an X to the size!!!

  • Tom

    Definetly NOT a plus size. Modeling Companies do not do justice to our young girls and women on how they are suppose to look like.

    Um, no. Definitely not a plus sized. Many women would love to be her size. Besides, beauty comes in all shapes and sizes. Confidence and attitude are where it’s at.

    Everyone knows the modeling world is made up of gays. So they want models who look like thin pre-teen boys with long hair. That model is normal sized!
