WHAT MODELS THINK ABOUT THE TERM PLUS-SIZE?

WHAT MODELS THINK ABOUT THE TERM PLUS-SIZE? 5

Hi Queens,

Today a different kind of post.

Can we still use the term plus-size? And what do the models think about the term plus-size?

I was happily surprised to find this interview at one of my favorite platforms namely Hypebae, that I just had to share it with you here. Hypebae is one of the most diverse platforms in the game and they truly nailed it by asking models  Tara Lynn, Cloé Véro, Solange van Doorn and Yvonne Simone about their thought about the fashion industry.

While the topic comes up quite frequently nowadays when talking about fashion or beauty, size diversity was barely addressed or promoted a decade ago. Due to an increasing number of brands expanding their size offerings and the body positivity messages by influencers preaching for acceptance and self-love on social media, the industry is finally heading towards the right direction. But some hurdles are still there to be taken.

Are we keeping the stigma alive?

In my opinion, I don’t experience plus-size as a negative word to use, but is it? While checking the YouTubes and Instagrams I can’t help but wonder: ‘Are we keeping the stigma alive by using the term plus-size as the term causes separation from the rest of the models? At the end of the day, these plus-size models are models with different body types and size clothing, so why do we put them in a box? Or why does the industry put them in a box?

I do have a strong opinion on representation. Representation and inclusivity matters! There is still a huge lack of representation and inclusivity on the whole field when it comes to media, the fashion industry, and the body-positive movement that I represent myself. That’s why it’s a big deal to create awareness, not only for one group of people but for all of us, so we all can identify ourselves.

Any Thoughts?
