I read an article this morning about Robyn Lawley, the plus size model, and instantly had a few thoughts on it.
My first thought was obviously, there is no way she is a plus size model, especially at a size 12. Its absolutely shocking to me that she would even be considered a plus size model with this body, by no means is this woman overweight, she looks healthy. A plus size model in my mind is a size 16, is it just me who thinks that?
The second thing I thought, and please don’t hate me – I thought, if she is a UK size 12 then I must be the same size as her, and I feel smaller than she looks in these pictures. (Maybe my self perception is a little off right now though, I had a summer of over indulgence.) Can I also just point out that I don’t think for a second I’d look as good as this in a bikini. I’m not saying Robyn Lawley is fat, she isn’t, she has absolutely stunning curves, amazing boobs, bum, etc, but she doesn’t look like a size 12, most taller women with boobs tend to be a little larger because of their frame. (Maybe its just these pictures though, I’ve looked at other pictures of her today and she looks a lot smaller.) Robyn Lawley has a great body, all 6’2″ of her could carry off any size!
It makes me wonder though if she really is a size 12? Would the media gain anything from saying she is a 12 if she really is, say, a 14? Most women I know range from size 10-14, and as long as they are happy, healthy and comfortable in their own skin they can be whatever size they want to be.
Any thoughts on this issue ladies? Should a size 12 woman be plus size model?
