The Shine: When did size 6 become "plus size?"

Is size six the new plus size? It can be if you're a model. Twenty years ago, the average model was eight percent smaller than the average American woman -but today, models are 23 percent tinier than the rest of us. Want proof? According to Denise Bidot, a popular plus-size model and recent cover girl, size-six women often model what are supposed to be size-14 samples for plus-size catalogs. Bidot sat down with "The Shine" to talk about this heated topic and how she wants women to believe that when it comes to their bodies, it's all about being the size that's healthy for YOU, not what the fashion and advertising worlds expect you to be.
