Finally the fashion industry is opening its eyes to the plus size model, and what they can contribute to the fashion world..

You no longer have to be stick thin to enter the modeling world. Crystal Renn is a beautiful larger size model. Even at size 14, I personally don't really consider that a "large size", but for the fashion industry, this is a huge step. She is gaining exposure, and many fashion houses, are now creating beautiful fashions for the curvy girl.

You can now look at larger models, like Crystal Renn, and think "hey I could wear that" instead of watching stick thin fashion models on the runway, and think "I will never wear that".  These models, are changing the fashion world.

In a video interview, Crystal Renn speaks out, about how hard she was on her body, trying to keep up the thin image. She would do two or three photo shoots in one day, and then go home and stay up half the night working out, and always thinking about food.

She says, it was a constant battle of hunger, to be the right size for the industry, she always felt unwell, and just could not keep this up, and decided to change the way she treated her body.

But, since letting her body, be the size it naturally wants to be, a 14, she is still getting lots of calls and attention, and feels good and full of energy, and does not have to spend as much time in makeup, as she is vibrant and healthy.

Since 6 out of 10 women in North America, are a 14 and up, its about time the fashion industry created fashions and styles for the larger curvy women.

Crystal Renn and other plus size models, speak out about how unhealthy they felt while trying to portray that stick thin look.

So, all you ladies out there, who thought a modeling career was out of the question, because you are not stick thin.. think again.

Get lots of exercise and fresh air, eat well, and do the best you can for your body, and you will be beautiful no matter what your natural size is.

On Being a Plus Size Model

Many fashion houses are adding lines of really chic and trendy curvy girl fashions to their clothing lines.  It is the right thing to do, because if more than 65% of North American women are considered plus size (size 14 and up) then why prPlus Size Model Crystal RennCredit: amazon.comomote fashions for size 2? 

Many of the fashions that are designed for the slimmer 2s don't work well on a 16 no matter how much bigger you make it.

The curvy girl needs fashions that hug all the right curves and glide over the not so nice ones.  They demand modern, classy and yet chic fashions that suit them and make them feel good. 

There are more larger models now showing up in the fashion magazines and on the runways, and there has never been a better time to go shopping for clothes as right now.  No more going to the rack in the back of the store.  Things have changed and many retailers are  wanting in on this market to help with their bottom line.

Take care of your body with good nutrition and exercise and be the size you are.
