 This stunning size 12 model was branded 'too fat' for a competition
This stunning size 12 model was branded 'too fat' for a competition
One judge criticised her for having "stocky" legs while another reprimanded her for saying she wanted to prove larger women could be successful models. But Jen Hunter triumphed when viewers voted her to the top female slot in the contest - and claimed she owed her success to her favourite dish of hotpot and chips. picked by jaxomlotus 5 years ago

The current UK size 12 is equivalent to a US size 10. Marilyn Monroe wore a size 10!

She looks waaaay better than that other....corpse...

Average women can see what she is wearing, and have a hope of looking the same!

Wasn't it Spain or Italy that wanted to ban the skeletonlike supermodels, and go for a more natural look ?

Why is it that supermodels HAVE to be skinny ?

A fashion show in Madrid banned models with a BMI of less that 18. That stick insect had a BMI of 16.1, that's just sick.

Hooray! Those skeletal models have never been attractive. If fashion designers want to make women's clothes for 12 year old boys, they should just get 12 year old boys to model them.

The second girl looks like she just came out of Auschwitz. I don't see how anyone w/o a zombie fetish could find something like that attractive. They look like the living dead.

It's hard to see how that model would even be a size 10 (US). It must be that she has big hips and that swimsuit and pose hide them well. I agree with everyone here - she is far more attractive than the other lady.

There's not much to add after those great comments. The skeleton looks butt ugly.

If I'm looking at buying new clothes, I specifically avoid ones modelled by superthin women. If the only way the designers can make their clothes look good is on skeletons, then I know there's no way they'll look attractive on me.
I think there might be a change in the fashion industry, it seems the waif look might be going out (but this time, for the first time, by requests from the general public!)

Ok, here's another case of using pictures to get a desired result. Of course the thin model doesn't look good in that one-piece, it's made for a size 12! If the larger model was to wear what the thinner one would normally model, she would look fat and ugly, trust me.

There's no way the skeleton is wearing the same size... it's just the same outfit. If it were a 12, it would be hanging off her and all her naughty bits and ribs would be fully exposed.

Furthermore, Hunter looks like she's sexy, confident and she's got class, whereas Berglund just stands there awkwardly like a confused little boy.

...and therefore so would about 99% of the rest of the female population in areas not suffering from a famine. The larger model represents what healthy women actually look like, while the skinny one represents what women look like after the ravages of some kind of fatal disease.

Isn't there a middle ground that could be more acceptable? The stick-thin models are bad news but so are the plus size ones. Don't both of these women have a problem with food?

Can't we have models that are average size and therefore prettier than either of these two?? I guess it's a matter of opinion...

Size 12 women do NOT have problems with food. (In general.) Size 12 women are WOMEN. Women have curves, flesh and child-bearing hips.

PS Size 12 IS average.

What you're suggesting just perpetuates the whole problem. Women (and men) come in ALL shapes, sizes, and colors. Why not have a bunch of models that vary in these ways?

And just for the record, not all plus sized people have problems with food. Nor do stick-thin people. That's a horrible generalization.

I agree with you. The average sized women is a size 10-14...they have curves and hips. That doesn't mean they have eating disorders. Her size is definately not considered 'plus' size. Just healthy is the way I see that size...and that women is beautiful and confident, and exudes it thru her picture, the other looks so unhealthy and too thin, and it also shows in her photo, she looks unhappy, and drained.

Hooray for normal sized people, and for people just accept that we all come in different sizes, and that we shouldn't strive to become something we are not meant to be, just be ourselves.

*Thin and HEALTHY here*

I completely agree size 12 girls can definitely model, I was pretty shocked at the treatment Select gave Jen on the show. Gossip suggests that Jen has been offered a modelling contract with Cape London Model Management one of London's big fashion model agencies and she already has a big contract looming... way to go Jen - curvy is cool!

Keep an eye on her profile at for more updates on her modelling career.....

ps lots of other boys and girls to look at too! - I am picking up some fashion tips!!
