    Sophie Dahl I think.

    She started off a 14/16 and is now as thin as all the others!

    Nah, she's about a size 8 still I think. Much bigger than most other models. I guess she probably had to lose weight for her career. Having a larger model is probably a good gimmick for a while, then the audience would be paying more attention to her than to the clothes! Plus, to be honest, a lot of the skimpy little outfits looked kinda obscene on someone with boobs!

    Yes you do.

    My friend is a size 6 cheerleader and I've been shopping with her in shops where I could probably barely put my thigh into the largest clothes there (they only went up to a size 8 or 10). And there are loads of high street clothes shops where you can only buy clothes up to like a 16.

    The same thing happens every time there's a thread started about weight and dress size... If you're happy and you look good/feel good in you're own skin then that's all the matters. Less of the skinny-bashing!

    I honestly wouldn't want to be over a size 12 because I know that I don't like my body as it is now, and I can imagine how I'd look if I was that little bit larger, but that's my own preference. I think if you're shapely, confident and you have smooth curves rather than rolls of flab you can look great at any dress size. It's just a label in your clothes at the end of the day.

    It's no wonder there are so many eating disorder inflicted girls going round the school circuit nowadays. Stupid poxy media and their 'accepted beauty images.

    Hmm, I agree with Amy. I also completely despise the term 'real women/girls' as it seems to only refer to curvy ladies- are size 4/6 people not real then? So long as being slim isn't something that rules your life, then really what's the problem?

    Regarding the catwalk, saying this is a plus size catwalk is entirely ridiculous. I personally think designers are quite gimmicky when they say 'plus size models' as the clothes are often not made to fit these girls properly. It's almost patronizing. I don't think designers should feel pressure to pick models because they are 'larger'; it's essentially positive discrimination. Different jobs have different looks, we have to accept that. It's my understanding that, at sizes of around 4/6/8, there is a much more 'standard' shape figure, compared to larger models, where the position of the curves can vary hugely. So whilst I don't think skinny people or curvy people are superior to the other, I understand why smaller models are mostly used.
