A plus size model is an individual who models plus sized clothing and other accessories. They are also known as full-figured models, extended sized models, and outsized models. They primarily model for plus size clothing companies but may also engage in photo shoots for stock photography, cosmetics, household products, footwear, and watches. These models are held to the same expectations as regular models. They are generally expected to be over 5’9, have good skin, well proportioned bodies, as well as a good bone structure. The only difference between regular and plus modeling is that plus sized women have larger bust, waist, and hip measurements than regular models. They also engage in similar work as smaller models. They may be expected to model for advertisements, magazines, fashion shows, and commercials.
Plus modeling is becoming an increasingly popular phenomenon. This is because the world is seeing more plus sized individuals.
