Whenever you think about the fashion industry and fashion shows you think of the beautiful small, long leg creatures walking up and down a runway. That's the way modeling is perceived, although models come in many sizes. There are models who are plus-size, they may not be a Victoria's Secret Angel, but they are, in fact, out there.
I ran across this spread in V Magazine that gave some positive exposure to "plus-size" models. Two models were photographed with similar poses, dressed in the same clothes. The only difference was their size. The purpose of the shoot was to show that fashion doesn't discriminate against size.
Personally, I like the "thicker" girl. Take a look at the photographs and you be the judge.
