Models who became Plus Size Models
I keep seeing these articles of former plus size model Crystal Renn all over the place. She started out as a size 0 model and later became a size 16 model only to wind up now to be a size 8. Lately, I have been finding a lot of former sample sized models who are now plus size models. Do you guys know of any more?

I found Sabine Karlsson. For a while, I was wondering what happened to her until I came across her at 12+UK


tfs

I found Laura Garrett formerly of Storm for a very long time. Now she is with Hughes Models in London. A year ago, she was a size 4/6. Now she is a size 14.

Amy Lemons, Melina Querel, Stephanie Shiu, Heather Hazzan, and Robyn Lawley.

There's a lot actually! Those are the ones I can think off the top of my head.

^^Inga Eiriksdottir.

Also
Milina Huckova (Milk)
Jessica Lewis (Muse)
Louise MacCallum (Milk)
Hannah Fell (Milk)
Geo Burke (Ford)
Gitte Lill (Ford)
Kate Dillon (Ford)
Quinn (Ford)
Valeriya Ostapenko (Ford - although she has not been visible in plus work for a long while)
... and all the others whose stories have never been in the press. There really are too many in the biz now to name them all.

The majority of new girls now are those that started modelling at a much smaller size, and who remain at the smaller end of the plus size spectrum. It's a disappointing trend, and certainly goes against the whole point of plus size modelling in many ways. Perhaps it will cycle out in a year or so, who knows? 'Size Diversity' has come to mean as many girls as possible in 10-12, rather than a wider mixture of sizes represented. Meh.

There is a chance this topic may unconsciously devolve into weight talk so tread carefully!

They look hot in both sizes but especially after the transformation.

Alyona has disappeared from the Ford+ board, and not turned up elsewhere in NYC so I would say that she has moved back to women's boards somewhere

She will probably show up at Women in New York as she is already on Women Milan's mainboard.

It's interesting that after the Ford NYC plus board was dissolved that many went to Muse and Wilhelmina, but a few key players disappeared for a while... only to show up at IMG! They have the girls mixed in with the main women's board which is great to see (not listed as specials or plus size) - time will tell if they actually have a 'division' per se or just a hand full of key girls. While I am sure the girls would jump at the chance to be on the same boards as the top girls of the fashion world, it's interesting that they didn't sign with JAG Models (Jaclyn & Gary) when it opened.

Models currently with IMG at end of 2013:

Ashley Graham (IMG page)
Danielle Redman (IMG page)
Inga Eiriksdottir (IMG page)
Marquita Pring (IMG page)
Julie Henderson (IMG page)
Tara Lynn (IMG page)

Shannean Gormley has been with IMG for about a year, she's a size 12: http://www.imgmodels.com/details.asp...catID=2&indx=5
Possibly others on the development board as well, I didn't check the entire development section.

Noemi Manser has been with IMG Paris since last January, maybe she will be added to the NY board soon as well.
