What's plus and what isn't is an ongoing and heated debate (I am just learning of all the debate surrounding the term via another community and whoa its quite intense) when I look at her I think she is curvaceous and cute which is what matters most at least to me. Plus is just a catch-all term that varies in meaning from store to store, state to state, person to person.
Oh right! Thanks for explaining.
I don't usually think about sizes when i'm looking at what someone is wearing. If they look cute they look cute! Shouldn't matter if its 'tiny' or if its 'plus' in my opinion
I really would NOT consider a US size 12 plus sized. It is in fact the size the majority of american woman are therefore making it the average size. I'm not going to go offtopic but it is an indicator of how sizist we are becoming if a size 12 is a plus. To me a plus sized person is anyone who has to go into a plus sized section or a plus sized store to get their clothing. So it's difficult because places like Gap go up to size 20 and some stores stop at 12. I would say 16+ is plus sized.
16+ is OK with me. I dunno, I'm bigger than a 12, but I don't think that it's necessarily OK that the average size is 12. And it also depends on the person. I know someone who's a 16, and they look smaller than some people who are a 12.
I'd say that she appears to be about a 14? Regardless, I think that she looks cute.
I don't understand why we need a plus sized style thread... Style can also be found on a "smaller" person, and be adapted to any body size. Also, i don't mean to offend anyone, but I do not think it is OK to say ( even though it is true )that the average american woman is a size 12. It sounds like an excuse, and if anything, it should open our eyes to what is going on with our society. We now have these 2 extremes, either size 00 or size 12. What happened to a healthy size in between these two??
