The Problem with the Page 3 'Model'

Neely Reyes | Posted 22.01.2015 | UK Lifestyle

Sarah Potter | Posted 15.01.2015 | UK Lifestyle
Sarah Potter

Kate Leaver

Looking at this woman from any other perspective - from outside the strict, bizarre world of fashion - Myla Dalbesio isn't "plus-size". She is MODEL SIZE. Angular in places, soft in others, but with semi-protruding ribs and minimal body fat. She is stunning to look at, obviously. She's a beauty. But 'plus-size'? No.
