Plus size women in fashion was practically unheard of twenty years ago. Heck, even ten years ago it was hard to find fashion forward clothing in anything bigger than a size 16. While things may not be perfect today, they are improving. Thanks to the internet we have more clothing options than ever before. Because there is a demand for plus size clothing there is also a demand for plus size models to show them off. One of the best resources for information (and lots of photos) on plus size models is the website Judgment of Paris where you can learn about such beauties as Barbara Brickner, Kate Dillon, Christina Schimt, Crystal Renn and more.
The website is owned, written and carefully updated by Canadian Heinrich Saint-Germain. Heinrich refers to the website as an online gallery like the "pinacotheca" similar to the privately owned one room showrooms that existed in Roman homes to showcase collections of pictures, statues and other works of art.
You will also find oodles of resources if you are interested in plus size modeling or are just curious about the business of plus size modeling. The website has an active forum where members openly discuss tough new topics like, "Professional Eye vs. Public Eye" or "Plus Size, the New Healthy" as well as the latest news on our favorite plus size supermodels.
There are great articles like Timeless Beauty which compares some of today's most beautiful women to art through the ages. And do not forget to participate in the survey providing your opinion on the most beautiful women in the world (which makes the title all the more appropriate don't you think).
Go and be captivated by the allure of Judgment of Paris.
