My agency works with some of the biggest brands on the high street - Topshop, River Island, Selfridges just to name a few. The majority of our models are a size 8 or a size 10 yet they work regularly with these brands because it's about a healthy, well-proportioned figure.

As much as the large agencies have used their size to push their competitors around, what they haven't been able to do is control the direction that fashion and retail has headed.

Neely Reyes | Posted 24.06.2015 | UK Style

First we wanted more representation for plus size women in modelling. Then we had plus size women 'reclaiming' the term. Then we had a nineties pop star say she disapproved of stores selling clothes in 'unhealthy' dress sizes. Now finally we have people saying we should drop the term 'plus size' altogether.

Neely Reyes

Now I'm all for the modelling industry to be inclusive of all body shapes and sizes and I think plus size modelling has a valid and important role in the industry, but I also think that the average consumer these days is wise enough to know that skinny doesn't equal beautiful any more.
