I have talked about this before that just like regular size models, plus size models’ measurements are more balanced and proportionate than the majority of plus size women. US Weekly editors did an experiment because of the fact that a lot of plus size clothing is sold on line leaving women to decide for themselves whether to buy an item based on how the clothing looks on the model.
Editors Kristin Chirico and Sheridan Watson, who frequently shop for plus-size fashions, signed themselves up for a day of trying on clothes from brands including Forever 21, Torrid, ASOS, and Fashion to Figure. Their experience with outfits had more than a few snags. Items on a 5’11″ model looked way different on the shorter editors.
Read more about their experience and see if you agree? While there is not a one-size-fits-all solution, there may be ways technology can assist plus size women with shopping for their particular silhouette.
