Can you please define these plus-size models' body?

So you know, after Azarenka was on Ellen I started watching Ellen videos and found this



Lots of people are going crazy in the comments saying that they're not plus-size, that they are from thin to normal, and I mean, Ellen is thinner than all of them, so just vote and give your opinion please.

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Sammo, IMO, it depends on what country you're from. Being American, I'd say those 4 models are Normal size (size 10). The sad thing is that to me, a lot of American would consider these 4 women as being a little plus-size only because they've been conditioned to think that a 10 is "chubby". Btw. they all look great.

i'd say normal. i could also accept a "slightly heavy", but that has more to do with them being so tall.

The thing is that because of the increasing prevalence of obesity (and increasing fatness in varying degrees) in the USA, slightly heavy or even chubby is now often seen as "normal."
