Fashion industry today is a world outside the rules. If in 90-e years of the last century a decisive factor for the model was the notorious 90-60-90, but today they are expendable and do not care. Some designers put on the podium the slender ranks of androgynous models with angular boyish figures, but others try to be closer to the people and cooperate with the feminine fat girls plus size models.

It all started a couple years ago, when in one of the rooms of a fashionable American magazine there was a picture of a naked woman, whose body was far from model parameters – full belly, folds of fat, and even stretch marks on the sides.

Lizzie Miller is a professional model, weighing about 80 kg – not ashamed of his shapes and loves herself for who she is.

22-year-old Ashley Graham is a bright representative of the kind of plus-size models. On account of Ashley's many photo shoots in the fashion magazines, including a photo shoot for Vogue called "get in shape".

Blindly following the dream, a year the girl lost 30 kg – she only ate vegetables and salad, heavily involved in sports, chewed sugarless gum. With the growth of 175 crystal weighed 49 kg. Diet almost brought the girl to the grave, fainting, anorexia, bulimia, hair loss, heart problems has led to the fact that the body ceased to obey her and... she began to gain weight.

The "new" crystal began to appear in the pages of Vogue, she was asked to pose for advertising campaigns of famous designer houses, and even Amateur skinny women Jean Paul Gaultier succumbed to the allure model and trusted her to close the show at fashion Week in Paris.
