British size 16, maybe 18?
Well you will be shocked to discover its 12 or over according to the fashion industry.
With the average woman being a size 16 what planet are they on. There is far too much pressure on women, especially young women about their size and appearance and this kind of thing does not help. Most models I shoot are size 10 to size 14 and tend to look quite skinny, size 12 is not a plus size, especially when the average size is 16!
