Women that are plus sizes are less desirable because they often feel insecure about their weight. Plus size women that are confident tend to be desirable and many men are attracted to bigger women as long as they don't act so insecurely.

I remember dating a woman who is slightly on the plus size she gets so sensitive when talking about healthy eating. I only mentions eating healthy in a conversation and she gets moody right away.

Gee ... I wonder why? One only has to read through some of the responses on this thread to find the reason why larger women are insecure.

Then there are those of us who don't assign a higher value to a woman who carries a bit more weight vs. someone who is smaller. I'm not sure where that lies compared to men that 'prefer' bigger women. I like women that are healthy and proportional, regardless of size.

A woman that I am dating now looks a lot like a plus size model named Asia Monet. She's bright, has a pretty face, nice curves and is a real sweet heart. She can hold her own against most thinner women in my opinion.

Default I am a short, skinny woman

I don't mind seeing plus size women. We are all not clones of one another and should be proud of how you are meant to be.

From the poll it looks like the 'vast' majority of women would like to see more or don't care. And a the 'majority' of men say the same thing

Not plus sized, but normal sized. Models from the 50s were perfect in my opinion.

I am a female and don't really think much about it. That being said not only about weight but height/age/ethnicity it would be nice to see a range of different looks. Typically you see a 20 something or under but what would look good and appropriate on that age is sometimes not going to on an older person.
If an ad is for a plus size clothing it should have a plus size model but for regular sizes It would be better to have a healthy size person not one that is underweight in my opinion. Also for ads that are not geared towards clothing having a mix of body types, looks, different ages would be better.
I understand people come in all shapes and sizes but any extreme where one is under or overweight is not healthy.

Unfortunately 'Normal' or 'Average' is plus size in the Fashion industry. I would agree with you 50s statement.
