By Radar Staff

A magazine devoted to plus-sized models and fashion is bashing the mainstream fashion industry for using underweight models and failing to represent the average, healthy woman properly – even with plus-sized models.

PLUS Model Magazine recently published a shocking photo feature, showing the startling difference between the naked bodies of a plus-sized model and a regular ‘straight-size’ model.

In the scandalous photo feature, size 12 model Katya Zharkova is depicted in various poses, with shocking statistics captioning the images.

“Most runway models meet the Body Mass Index physical criteria for Anorexia,” one reads.

“Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighted 8% less than the average woman. Today she weighs 23% less,” another states.

The editorial claims that the average plus sized model at most modeling agencies, fluctuates between a size 6 and 14, while ten years ago, they averaged between size 12 and 18!

“Not everyone is meant to be skinny,” editor-in-chief Madeline Figueroa-Jones explains in the article. “Our bodies are beautiful and we are not talking about health here because not every skinny person is healthy.’
