There are others who are saying Graham isn’t plus-sized; rather her body is more like what that of an average woman is like. One that most people wouldn’t consider to be plus-sized. What I think most people fail to understand is that Graham really isn’t a “plus-sized” model — she’s a plus-sized “model.” Accent on the word model. Because most models probably are size 0s or 2s at the most. Graham is more like a size 14 or 16. So yes, she’s big, if you will, for a model.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad the body of at least one woman in the Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition will look more like what “real” women look like. (Even though Graham admits she likes Photoshop because it gets rid of her cellulite. Which means that maybe she doesn’t look exactly like photo appears.) And I’m glad that Graham loves her curves. I think that’s important. But something about the whole situation just doesn’t sit right with me. I need to think about it for awhile. I let you know if I figure out why.
