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?

What’s Your opinion?

I am seriously annoyed – for a woman my height size 12 is perfectly within the medically advised weight range – so why that is called “plus sized” is beyond me…… One thing people seem to forget when comparing women’s sizes today to women of the past is that we are TALLER – every generation we are getting that way – so saying that we should be the same weight or the same waist, bust and hip measurements as our grandmothers generation when we are several inches taller is a complete crock.

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

Facebook’ll likely be easiest. or firstname.lastname@gmail.com 🙂

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? 🙂

Pooks, what age are you looking for? I’ve got a friend who has lots of camera presence who may be interested. Also, perhaps you could ask around at the CIT fashion area, as the students there model each other’s clothes.

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

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.

“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…”

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…

you mean you want a normal woman.

I would put plus size at over size 16.

wow – plus sized at size 12… pluck a duck…. i’d better go enroll in jenny craig.

That’s why they are referred to as “plus sized models” rather than “plus sized persons”. Models are generally fairly tall and slim, and as far as I know not meant to represent society in general, so for a model size 12 is plus sized.

And no I’m not inferring that models aren’t persons. They are a sub-set of persons, making the reference to models more specific than to persons in general.

Whew, so glad that I wasn’t the only one thinking “Size 12 is plus sized?!”

Size 12-14 is “plus-sized” now? Oh modelling, you so wacky.
