In the fourth episode of SRO Conversations, model Kate Dillon-Levin talks with Paul and me about the definition of a plus-sized model and how the fashion industry has changed over the years as it relates to a woman’s size.
Twenty years ago, models were a size 6-8 and weighed 8 percent less than the average woman. Now models are a size 0-2 and weigh 23 percent less compared to the average woman twenty years ago.
