With more inclusive runways and an increasingly size-diverse fashion industry comes the rise of plus-size models. While there's still work to be done, thankfully, plus-size is no longer a niche segment of the fashion world. Women with bodies beyond size 0 are being booked more and more, making modelling a lucrative career minus the toxic pressure to conform to a particular dress size.
ICYMI, Australia is home to some of the most well-known and sought after plus-size models in the industry. From Sports Illustrated star Kate Wasley to ultra-successful La'Tecia Thomas (who recently walked at New York Fashion Week) call us biased, but our homegrown models are among the best in the world.
