11 Plus Size Models Jan 14, 2016 by Sarah (Day Styles)
Gone are the days where models need to be as thin as sticks to land modeling jobs in the fashion industry. The industry has taken note of how unhealthy being that thin is and is now embracing a curvier look. We’ve gathered 11 of the top plus-size models in the world right now and these beautiful women are taking the fashion industry by storm!
11. Maggie Brown
Maggie Brown made her modeling debut when she won a contest put on by Tyra Banks in 2006. She is signed with Wilhelmina Models and has had multiple jobs including modeling for Macy’s and Mervyns. She holds a degree in biology, allied health and a secondary teaching certificate from Southern Adventist University.
10. Lizzie Miller
Glamour Magazine included a spread of Lizzie Miller nude in 2009 and got the women’s fashion world really talking! The photos were unedited and were used for a campaign to help women feel comfortable in their bodies. Her untouched photos started a body image revolution which is still going strong today. She’s been doing continuous modelling since the shoot as it has helped companies use normal and plus sized women in their modeling campaigns.
9. Ashley Graham
Ashley Graham initially made headlines because a commercial for Layne Bryant that she was the feature model in was banned before 8 p.m. due to her showing too much skin. She’s been featured in Vogue, Glamour and has been the face for both Levi’s and Addition Elle.
