One of the wonderful perks of working in the plus-size industry is watching plus-size models develop their careers.  The plus size modeling industry is not easy and just as fast as some enter it, they also leave it behind.

Developing a career in modeling takes more than just a pretty face; it takes chemistry with the camera, a business mind, patience and endurance.
