Do you think size 8 is a plus size?

I really shouldn't read Stir articles, they just make me mad sometimes. One article I read was about a plus size model that has a line of bathing suits. Great, but they start at a size 8. For me an 8 is a goal size not a plus size. What do you think? Would you consider a size 8 plus size?

I think size 8 is an adult woman size. In high school I'd see 8 as plus size, but for an adult that has birthed multiple children I think its in the normal range.

No, but it's plus size for models.

Plus sizes start at 14 in most lines but at 10 in others. Honestly if I could be a 14 tomorrow without looking horribly sickly and have hanging skin I would SO do it.

No, I don't consider it plus size. I was in a 7-9 depending on the clothes at 18. I was 5'6" and 130lbs which was just right for my medium framed body. I wish that I could be an 8 again! ( I would take a 12 at this point, lol.)
