Even with the increase in body acceptance, thin models still dominate the high fashion runways. The “sample size” body is still an industry standard, a far cry from 67% of US women who wear a size 14 or larger. Fashion writer Liz Black shows the jarring dichotomy of the average woman’s body attempting to breach those sample size garments, reminiscent to how the plus-size movement is attempting to breach the fashion industry today.
