many of us ladies look at the ads in magazines or tv and wonder who really looks like that?  the reality is that only a tiny fraction of women are the size of the models that are plastered all over the media.    

Did you know:

– Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today, she weighs 23% less.

– Ten years ago plus-size models averaged between size 12 and 18. The majority of plus-size models on agency boards are between a size 6 and 14.

– 50% of women wear a size 14 or larger, but most standard clothing outlets cater to sizes 14 or smaller.

In the January 2012 issue of PLUS Model Magazine, plus-size model Katya Zharkova is featured in an explosive editorial about this issue.
