10 Plus-Size Models On The Rise

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.

This month we scoured the US agencies and created a short list of plus-size models who are on the road to big success in 2012.

Did your favorite’s make the list?

 

Lauren Shaw – l.a models

Caralyn Mirand – ImagesNYC

Amy and Kathryn McCoy – Dorothy Combs Models

Heather Hazzan – MUSE NYC

Vicky P – IPM Model Management

Leila King – Wilhelmina NY

Kaela H. – Wilhelmina LA

Lexi – Wilhelmina LA

Mariesther – Heffner Model Management and Moxie Management

*Although there are many models who are doing great works we could not list them all.

    Is there something wrong with me that none of those ladies look like they are plus size? They all look like average-sized women. Not average looks, but average size.

    Wow, these woman are stunning.
    They are not plus size. I suppose maybe in fashion they are but not in real life. It is upsetting to see because I am plus sized(16-18)and seeing these females labeled as a plus size is wrong. Some model clothing which should flatter a larger figure which they do not have, misleading. Of course it will look great on them. I am sure everything does. I want to see real plus size females in plus sized clothing and perhaps these woman in regular sizing clothing ads.
