This month’s issue of PLUS Model Magazine has a fantastic fashion editorial featuring two different sized plus models, wearing the same outfits and posing exactly the same. The editorial, called ‘Changing The PLUS Divide‘, is meant to show how plus size in the fashion industry is not just one size or one body type. It’s setting the stage for new rules in defining plus size once and for all.

All images were shot by Andre Schneider, styling by Spry Lee Scott, makeup by Tara Taylor and hair by Daleesa Weary. Models are Iman McDonnaugh, who’s signed to Wilhelmina Models NYC and Anita Marshall, who’s signed to Dorothy Combs Models.

    While all sizes should be served by the plus-size industry, those of us in the size 12 area should not be forgotten or treated as having no problem. The mainstream fashion industry does not provide us with any positive reinforcement or role models. I was a larger size and, in a common situation, had to lose weight to deal with type 2 diabetes. My doctor is satisfied – but the fashion and beauty industry continue to treat me as defective. Please don’t freeze us “in-betweens” out of the plus community. It is the only place we can get support for personal confidence and a positive self=image. Also, clothes fit a size 12 completely differently from how they fit a woman who is 6 or 8; I can’t get any help from fashion suggestions meant for waif. Thanks for listening!
