They look plus sized to me
They're rib cage aren't 32-28. I'm a 28 I'm 100 lbs 5ft 1. When I say plus I mean just thick. I'd say their mainstream size 36E. Their actually sizes being a 32I to a36K
Skeletons can be shaped differently, some are narrow and some aren't. I have an extremely deep ribcage and I measure 35" around even when I was very thin. If you google someone like Gisele (who is a few inches shorter than me) her ribcage is VERY narrow and even though she's tall she likely wears a 28 or 30 at the most. It's just the way her skeleton is shaped.

You likely just have a deep ribcage like I do.

Giselle's very small likely has a 28. I am sorry but I'm not convinced 28 is large. Especially for hourglasses you do know an hourglass can be small

The women in op were hourglasses so they had a v as well on top so likely their rib cages are bigger

You so understand Giselle is very small or not

By your own words she's very narrow. Which you say is about 28-30.

Maybe but even their hips don't look to be that big...I don't know.

This woman claims a 36H, 48 inch hips and 18 dress size and is what I consider a full figured model. She thinks so too so it's not a dig:

I posted their bra sizes as calculated by the lingerie company they modeled for. All ranged from 28-30. The women pictured aren't "super small." I think the average model is more like 24 as they have much smaller frames than the women pictured.

Poke around on the bra band project. Most if the women with a 28 band aren't model sized. A thin poster her has mentioned she is officially a 24 band. Which is difficult to impossible to find.


I am on my phone, please forgive the typos.

LOVE her blog! I've been following her for quite sometime and her bra reviews are spot on. I'm wearing a Cleo right now that she recommended and it quickly became my very favorite bra to wear

Let's clear up this Giselle nonsense. Her bra size is listed as 34 B, those are likely Victoria's Secret type measurements where you add 4, so I bet she's 30 under bust. She's also 5'10.
