I need a plus sized model for an indie photo-shoot.

By Pooks - 3 April 2012 80

Help!

I need a lovely  female model to help me shoot some indie clothing, Preferably size 12-14. Experience is not required!

I’m a female photographer. It will be on a volunteer basis, however a keepsake CD of images will be included.

Can anyone help, or offer any suggestions on where I should be advertising?

Thanks Rioters.

What’s Your opinion?

Now I’m confused. Whose boy are we talking about here?

My apologies, poetix, it was a bad attempt to reference an older demotivational about if someone felt attracted to women with the body of a younger teenaged boy (fairly straight up and down, no curves, small breasts and hips, etc.), as opposed to more curvaceous figures, etc etc.

I don’t think you’re the only one that is “confused”. Duffbowl, it’s fine to be confused, just don’t go looking up photos on the interwebs, I hear you can get into trouble for that sort of thing.

But it’s part of my vague job description, honest…

Yes, I know. I was just having a laugh. I do that sometimes. It’s my evil jeans.

When at least 67.4% of Australians are overweight (according to the World Health Organisation, 2007), I don’t think the average Australian women’s dress size is a size any woman should be aspiring to…

So, does that mean a size 12 is obese? Jebus, I hope not. Alternatively, call me a fatty lover.

What is interesting is the discrepancy in sizing between stores claiming an Australian Standard (there is an old one, formulated in the 1950s against data from the 1920s). Two sites (I will not name them) claim different results:

Site A
Size 6 8 10 12 14 16
Bust (cm) 81 86 91 96 101 106
Waist (cm) 58 63 68 73 78 83
Hips (cm) 87 92 97 102 107 112

Site B
Size 6 8 10 12 14 16
Bust (cm) NA 82 87 92 97 102
Waist (cm) NA 63 68 73 78 83
Hips (cm) NA 88 93 98 103 108

Look, I wasn’t going to comment but this statement ‘Australian women’s average size is 12-14’ is appalling, yes it is now but only since access to so much junk, easy to cook and take way food has become the norm that Australian women have gone from average 8-10 to 12+ size. I am a little size 8 depending on the brand and certainly don’t take on the look of a boy!!!

I am the poor girl that manages to get a seat on the bus and then has some plus size take the seat next to me and also half of my seat, I don’t get half fares though!!!!

Yah, I was going to ask the exact same thing – since when is size 12 plus sized?

I’m seriously disgusted.

Is that you, satancow?

Now there’s a name I’ve not heard in ages! So…yes, but not any more? :)

Cheers. I’ll try to find a way to contact you through alternate channels.

Ruh roh. I know of this name also! *cough*BBS*Cough*

I agree DJ Mac, height does come into it but most Australian women aren’t overly tall, they seem to be getting taller though but for us that are shorter and smaller, size 12-14 makes us look like little bubbles.

Oh and the comment we are straight up and down may be the case for young girls but if you went looking (little women) have the curves as well.

to answer the op – when i was doing photography i went in to some of the funkier salons and was always able to source models from among their clientele; they usually have their clients model for them at hair shows, and these women (invariably, they’re women) are not at all of the usual ‘model’ dimensions, so should be excellent for your needs. try axis on barry drive, or next on mort st for starters…

or hang out in the store from where the clothing is available (or similar clothing) and simply ask if customers are interested. you can only ask…

And the fact that the OP is female may prevent her from seeming too overwhelmingly sleazy. ‘Hi, nice haircut. Are you size 14? Thought so. Are you interested in doing some modelling?’

For god sake people, did you see the word “model” she is asking for a model and yes if the model is between that size range 12-14 is a plus size model.

P.S and nothing wrong with plus size models, they just appeal to other difference markets

Dear god! You’d think the feminazi’s would be grateful someone was giving a fat bird a chance to do some modelling.

And then people wonder why women have issues when they are being called “plus-size” in what is the average Australian dress size. I’m still trying to comprehend what’s attractive about anything under size 12-14. If I wanted a woman with the boy of a young teenaged boy…

Miranda Kerr is I believe a size 8 now after having her kid, ’cause there’s nothing attractive about her at all. So some women are naturally a size 12+ and they look great, doesn’t mean just because you’re under a size 12 you have the body of a boy and can’t look just as good as a now ‘average’ Australian girl.
