    This moddel is alright but real plus size women have more curves then that. I think you should show someone more realistic to the average women. We would like to see how the clothes will look on us before we buy them. You make them in our size but not everything is for everyone.

  • Wannie says:

    This model may have a large build but she is not a plus size woman, we need to see real plus size models so that we know what the clothes will look like on us and not have to guess what we’ll look like.

  • Lisa says:

    This model is ok but i would like to see models thats more curvy. We need to see someone with some gut so we can see how the shirts will lay on us. I also would like to see plus size clothes in Apple Bottom, Akademiks, Ecko Red, Pepe Jeans and South Pole. That would be nice to have more varity.

  • SoJones.com says:

    i agree.. more curves

  • TINA says:

    I AGREE WITH THE OTHERS, SHE NEEDS TO HAVE MORE CURVES. MAYBE A SIZE 18 OR 20 JUST TO SHOW HOW THE CLOTHES WOULD LOOK ON SOMEONE WHO IS TRUELY A PLUS SIZE.

  • CRISSY says:

    Most clothing compaines that sell plus size clothes display the clothes on models that are NOT considered to be plus size in todays society. The model on display is beautiful but for a real plus size women that lives the life of a plus size women in the world today that have to be in some way embrassed to be called “plus size” are not impressed. Sorry! good try but back to the drawing board.

  • JULIENNE says:

    I WAS WONDERING HOW CAN I BECOME A PLUS MODEL FOR THIS SITE??…IM A FULL FIGURED WOMAN WHO MODELS SO LET ME KNOW…AND SHE LOOKS PLUS TO ME BUT JUST NOT TO THE POINT SHE LOOKS REALLY PLUS SHE LOOKS LIKE SHE WEARS ABOUT A 14 I WEAR A 16 AND CARRY MY WEIGHT WELL!!

  • Genia says:

    Realistic BBW’s have rolls. She is definitely a thick cutie. Go for bigger and shapely for a more realistic look. Here’s an idea start with your largest size model that can fit the largest size in the product then go for the middle.

  • well for starters she’s not plus sized! she’s regular size (i guessing she’s a 16?) but like i was going to say…..i dont give any credit to name brand clothes….because i feel that when baby phat first came out kimora knew to put baby phat in plus sizes right there and then when it became popular…but she didnt and she made it like 3 years ago (i should know i got the first ever plus size shirt from the site) and rocawear?! oh god please dont get me started…….but ima start cuz i got a freedom of speech…how the hell rocawear gonna have a line out for plus size women but dont make enough clothing for them and make more clothing for the size 1 chicks?! i dont get that! i went to the site and it was the same shit! it doesnt make any sense..the clothing brand i stick with is apple bottoms…at least nelly knows how to market the clothing line! anywayz i would love to see a larger plus size model and more clothing from baby phat and rocawear also ecko red and LRG for plus size women (i think they have cute track jackets)

  • h2 says:

    i’m sayin’ tho… ladies… when was the last time you looked at clothes online, saw something on a chick that had rolls and muffin tops and whatever else kinda of baked good hangin’ over the top of her jeans and thought “yeah, that’s cute!”

    i like this model. i can see the clothes without distracting lady lumps, but she’s still thick so i can see how the clothes fit on a bigger girl.

  • Diamond says:

    This model is ok but real plus size is a size 20 and up because you cant just walk into any department store and find a 20, 22, 24, 26, etc. By me being a size 22/24 I would like to see what the clothes would look like on me. If the model is a size 12/14 thats not plus size and that outfit is not going to look like that on me. Im just saying get a real plus sized woman to model. It would be nice to have a variety of girls, different sizes would be perfect. That’s what I think would be ideal.

  • jaiya says:

    not all plus size women have guts and rolls, but i do. i want to see a model from the side view with a stomach that sticks out farther than her boobs. lol. i love baby phat but every shirt fits the same, tight on the stomach. i am just lucky enough that my boobs stick out farther than my chest and and I am 5 11 so i am more tall than big. i would love to see a model with a stomach and hips and big boobs wear some of this stuff they are selling. half of the stuff they make, you need a girdle to look right. now you all tight at the club tryin to look like the model in the pic. hahaha

  • jaiya says:

    oh i know what would help. i want to see a model with 42-38-54 measurements.

  • Rissa K says:

    I agree with h2. the girl is thick enough to show off the clothes, but not too thick that it makes the clothes seem uncomfortable. Most of these clothes, babyphat, rocawear, etc., dont drape well over curves and\or rolls. Those of you who own these brands or have tried them on know what i mean. Realisticly they probably wouldn’t sell as well on a thicker model.Might as well use a small model because those of us with curves and rolls still need a girdle to wear that stuff anyway. I’d like to see apple bottoms and rocawear in plus and a larger variety of baby phat.

  • Julie says:

    this model has a very nice figure. however, i can’t tell how this stuff will look on me. models don’t have to be big and sloppy to sell your product. there is a website called http://www.hipsandcurves.com that has a beautiful, truly plus girl on their homepage. she actually has a body like mine, so when i bought the corset she was wearing, it FIT. surprise, surprise!

    love your stuff tho.

  • Victoria says:

    as long as you keep chopping off the models’ faces, they are gonna look butchered along with your clothes! and no credible model is gonna want to pose for your site if they get half-assed pictures. Oh, and by the way plus size models start from size 10! so they don’t have to have a 56 inch ass to model. get over it.

  • BrownSugar says:

    The model looks good but i agree with everyone else in saying they should have someone who is at least a size 20 to really show how a plus size woman would look in the clothes. Also i love the fact that rocawear, baby phat and apple bottoms have plus sizes i just wish they had more of a selection like the junior sizes do.

  • mac1 says:

    I use to think the same why, about non plus size women models, modeling plus size clothes. How I’m I suppose to see how it fits on me a size 18, when you showing it on a size 5. But the truth of the matter is a size 14/16 is what our sociaity considers PLUS size, and you will properly never see a size 20 with a gut on a website for advertisment. So what I’ve come to believe is that designers don’t care if true Plus size/18 and up, buy their clothes, thats why they only make a few of them, and if they did really want us to purchase them they would put them in store like Avenue, Lane Bryant and Ashley Stewart. Bottom line is they either want us to look like fools in to little clothes or don’t care if we buy them anyway.

  • Nicole C says:

    I believe she has good porportions to show how the close fit on someone that is “plus sized” but does not necessarily have a large stomach. My stomach is not huge, but I have had 2 kids so its larger than I would like it to be. My measurements are 41-36-44 and I wear size 16 clothes, I am right on the edge between plus and regular sized clothes. One thing that you must realize is that these designers are geared toward junior sizes, which fit smaller (plus sized or not). For example, when I was a regular sized girl, I could wear an 8 in misses, but a 9/10 or 11/12 in juniors.

    For the person that mentioned the designers sell their brands in Avenue, Lane Bryant and Ashley Stuart they must not shop there often because I have seen Baby Phat clothes on the Lane Bryant site also in the store,and have purchased Baby Phat clothes from Ashley Stuart.

  • lollipop21 says:

    I think the model on this page is a nice size. No I don’t think she’s not a plus sized woman in the real world, but in the fashion industry she is. My measurements are 42-38-42. No, I don’t have a gut, but my chest and my hips are bigger than the model in these pics. I have it in all the right places and in the real world most men want a woman with chest and ass, not 1′s and 2′s (sorry). My boyfriend has bought me stuff off this site pleanty of times. They fit me just fine. So if you all are looking for more models plz feel free to contact me. And for the plus sized women in the 20′s and above, if you feel that these clothing lines don’t advertise your sizes fairly, then why don’t you put yourselves out there and show them that big can also be beautiful.

  • Leannah says:

    If you are creating a plus size line of clothing, you should use realistic models so that a real woman will know if an outfit looks real good.

  • Erica says:

    Well I’m a “big girl” and i have a lot of heavier friends and not one of us have a flat stomach. The model is beautiful as all women are but I would rather you show not just different sizes in the clothes but DIFFERENT SHAPES!

  • CHADD M. SMITH says:

    FIRST OF ALL I AGREE WITH MOST OF THE BEAUTIFUL SISTERS ON HERE. FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART IF I WAS A MUSICIAN THERE WOULD BE NOTHING BUT BIG BEAUTIFUL WOMEN AROUND ME. THAT’S ALL I’M ATTRACTED TO AND DATE. SO TO ALL THE HIP HOP CLOTHING LINES GET BUSY AND PUT REAL BBW’S ON THE MAP. WHERE THEY BELONG. THE MODEL IN THE PIC IS OKAY BUT I’M BAKED POTATOES, STEAK AND CORNBREAD BROTHER. ONE MORE THING BEFORE I GO, I TO ALL THE BBW’S ALL OVER THE WORLD C-LOVE LOVES EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU. DAMN I BETTER GO BEFORE I OVER HEAT THINKING ABOUT BBW’S

  • Rach says:

    I agree with many of the ladies in saying she is okay…I also agree that she looks to be around a 16. When I think plus size I think about a lady around a size 20. I disagree that all plus size women have “lumps”. I am a size 20 but very well porportioned, the problem I find is that I have a very hour glass figure…I am forced to buy my jeans from the plus size department but the shirts look like drapes on me! I would assume yeah maybe your model wears a 16 for those jeans but her shirt is only a L or XL. Making her not truely “Plus Size.” How can we truely define plus size, is it necessary to have rolls to be plus sized? If thats the case, we should reconsider the types of models, maybe use someone with a few more curves. The other BIG isssue is that to be a PLUS SIZE model the min height is 5’7″. Come on ladies we all know the majority of Plus size girls are not that tall! Add a 3″ heal and maybe…we need a designer who truely is plus size to design clothes…she would make tons of money!!!

  • Lyrik says:

    I cannot believe most of you women saying that this model is not a plus size. By industry standards she is considered plus. I’m a 10 and it is hard for women my size to find clothes because we are in between sizes. Although I can get clothes that are not plus sometimes, usually the clothes “regular size” are too small or ill fitting and the “plus sizes” are too large. I like that she is representing for the “In between queens” because we really get overlooked! I would love to model so let me know if you need anymore ladies!

  • perfectly you says:

    Hello, this is my very first time EVER to contribute or even LOOK at a blog. So if I am not going about this the right way, please let me know and I will appreciate your help. I find it very interesting. I am a plus size and have my definate opinions on what plus size means to me. Some of you are right, plus size does not mean….rolls and lumps. However, I have found, MOST plus size women ARE larger in the “middle area” and it IS hard to see how things will fit one of us who fit the “mid area” group. Most plus size models I see are so beautiful, however, I dont think they fit the “norm”. I read a blog from someone on here who says plus size start at a size 10!!!! For that person I feel sorry because of the conception she has of a plus size! I must say though, in todays world, finally, being a plus size does not that the stigma it had when I was younger. Hope I have not overstepped my bounds and wrote too much. Thank you for any help you can give me.

  • Mizzthang says:

    I think the use of plus size models is a lot better than showing the skinnier models knowing everyone isnt 100 pounds

  • Kierysma says:

    i think that this woman has a beautiful figure but by looking at her i would say that she is a size 12. While a size 12 is plus size in the modeling world a size 16 is a more realistic size for a plus size woman in the plus size community. I think that you should more accurately portray how plus size women would look in this clothing.

  • Mamamia says:

    Ahahahaha, now I have seen it all.

    Hooray for the yucky plus sized women.

    Instead of modeling, they should be on the treadmill working that booty out.

  • Samantha says:

    I would love to model as a plus size model for Dr Jays. Honestly the model you have currently could be better one photo of her showed her strecth marks around her arm! That could have been taken care of with a lil make up. Me I am 5’6 curvy size 14 bottom and 1x top. African AMerican female with long curly hair that is mine caramel complexion and chinese eyes. Need proof I would be glad to send a pic!

  • Brittney says:

    Now I am plus sized but we need to be straight up! Do u really wanna see a size 22 model showcasing name brand?? Naw, I think that the model you have up there is big enough and does not need to be any smaller or bigger. I would love to see plus size clothes from : LRG, Akademiks, and Coogi…ASAP!!!

  • anonymous says:

    I hate to burst everyone’s bubbles, but I am a size 16 (right between regular and plus size) and I am not as big as this girl. Not that she isn’t beautiful.
