Meet ‘Plus Size’ Model Marquita Pring

If this is considered ‘plus size’ then I’m all in. In a recent article she says wants to weed out the term ‘plus size.’ When I think of plus size, the thought of bigger than the usual model comes to mind, when in reality that’s far from the truth. If you look at some of these models they’re not big at all, they just have some extra meat, but the body in a whole is actually toned and well taken care of. I do think that when people hear that term ‘plus size’ they do think of model that are borderline fat. So should we get rid of the term ‘plus size?’ Yes. A model is a model point blank. They pose. They smile. They get paid. Model.

Here’s what Marquita Pring had to say:

What is your stance on plus-size modeling? Do you think the industry is shifting to a broader audience, or is this just this year’s trend?
“Broader audience” [Laughs]. My stance is that the industry needs to embrace diverse women. I find it interesting that the fashion industry is notorious for change and constantly coming out with newest hottest trends before the previous one has even been played out. I don’t think this uprising of curvier models is just a trend. I think people are realizing that we are healthy, beautiful, happy women who are finally being discovered. I mean, let’s be honest, economically and psychologically it is in everyone’s best interest to include all sizes and models, regardless of the titles put on them. Designers will be making a lot more money by embracing a wider range of sizes, and women everywhere will start to feel better about themselves when they finally realize that to be beautiful, they do not need to conform to someone else’s ideal.
