  • In the fashion world, yes. In the "real world" I think anything over a 14 is considered plus size.

  • The plus size stores carry 12 & up. But if I were a 12, I'd be so very happy & I would not be shopping there anymore! So if you're worried about being called Plus Size and you wear a 12, I wouldn't worry. People who shop at the plus size stores are NOT size 12's!

  • I think if you are talking about models-then yes I'm pretty sure they are considered plus sized. horrible if you ask me!

  • Not sure if this helps but I once went into a store not knowing it was a plus size store. I realized what it was when the smallest size I could find was a size 12. I personally, however, would not consider size 12 a plus size. =0)

  • Yes and no. Plus size starts at size 12 but if you look at people at where a size 12 they are not big. I wear a size 12 to 14 but it is because I have a big butt and big hips. My waist is 23 inches.

  • A plus size model is a size 12 but it's not considered plus size in real life. It does depend on a lot of other factors though. I'm a size 14 and most definitely fat. I'm obese (looking to lose about 50lbs as of now) and short . A tall woman can look good at a size 12 but I'd need to be more like a size 6 to look decent.

  • size 12 clothes are not plus size. if you're a small woman and wear size 12 then you may be considered plus size (if that makes any sense lol)
