Side-by-Side Comparison of Average-Sized Woman with a Supermodel Will Blow Out Your Mindhole

By Dustin Rowles | Trade News | January 15, 2012 | Comments ()


The image above is of plus-sized model Katya Zharkova. I have no idea who that is, and I'm sure she's wearing a lot of Fotoshop by Adobé. However, I'm sure we can all agree -- except for the disgusting doucheball asshole pigs -- that Katya is one hell of an attractive woman, and that her "plus-size" looks like a fairly average body type (actually, given the country's propensity for over-eating, she probably falls well under the median weight).

Now, here's the same woman standing with a fashion model.


Striking, isn't it?

Here are the statistics that accompany the photospread in Plus Model magazine (via Fashionista):

  • Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today, she weighs 23% less.

  • Ten years ago plus-size models averaged between size 12 and 18. Today the need for size diversity within the plus-size modeling industry continues to be questioned. The majority of plus-size models on agency boards are between a size 6 and 14, while the customers continue to express their dissatisfaction.

  • Most runway models meet the Body Mass Index physical criteria for Anorexia.

  • 50% of women wear a size 14 or larger, but most standard clothing outlets cater to sizes 14 or smaller.
  • Me? I prefer the "plus sized" woman; she's bendy, see?


    (Fun Fact: The fashion model also posed in this position; unfortunately, her body was unable to sustain the weight redistribution and her spine snapped in half. RIP Fashion Model).
