Plus-size model Tara Lynn is no stranger to body discrimination.
The size 14/16 model broke into a thin-obsessed industry as the face of H&M’s “Big Is Beautiful” campaign and has appeared on magazine covers.
But in a recent interview with Elle, Lynn says that she doesn’t believe the apparel industry should try to include more diverse body types.
“It is hard to make clothes look great on big women,” she says.
“The more fat there is on a body, the more variation there is in the shape of that body,” she said. “And so it makes perfect sense that people are using a standard, clothes-hanger skinny body for it.”
Lynn says that it makes sense to use plus-size models for fragrance and beauty ads.
