I recently wrote an erotic romance where the heroine is a plus-size model. When I posted the beautiful book cover of, A Perfect Fit I received a lot of compliments. However, a couple comments about the woman on the cover not looking plus-size got me to thinking. So I did some, yes me, research.
The model in my book is a size 16, and weighs 160 pounds. She has some height on her and she's well proportioned. Or carries her weight well, as some would say. I think everyone will agree that if you were to take two plus-size people, give them the same weight but different heights they are going to look very different.
Now, plus-size is in the eye of the beholder. I guess it depends on what you consider to be plus-size. I checked and found the first plus-size model for Ralph Lauren, Robyn Lawley, is a whopping size twelve! She's absolutely beautiful. And she sure doesn't look plus-size to me. But she's considered that in the modeling industry.
The heroine in A Perfect Fit is a plus-size model.
