What do you consider plus sized?

I was reading an article where people were commenting on plus sized models in fashion and some were saying how anything over a 10 is plus sized and fat and lazy. So, just wondering what you consider plus sized?

  • I am real big on fashon and beauty - I think anything above a 14 -16 is plus size.

  • Oh good grief.... size 10? Are they insane! I always thought of plus when you hit the 18-20 mark...but it all depends on your body type, height, bone structure and what each person can carry and pull off (so to speak). But a size 10? I thought the world was getting better about this "gotta be anorexic" attitude? If celebrities weigh too little their bashed big time..... so where's the balance? Everyone in the world can't be a size 6.

  • And may I add - all I mean is +size. Not fat or lazy. There are some beautiful people that are a size 16.

  • I think some people {meaning the ones who said 10 is +size) may be lacking some oxygen in their brains j/k ;-)

  • A size 16-18. Don't you love all those plus sized models in the catalogs? You're lucky to see one a size 14. Delta Burke is the only one that uses real women that wear real clothing in hers. The Macys at our mall has 'phased out plus sized clothing due to a relatively small market" Are you fricken kidding me? What universe are they living in. It sure as hell isn't South Central Texas. ON that note..did you know Marilyn Monroe was a size 16?
