I must be strange because I am attracted to larger women in the general population but most of the plus sized models don't seem attractive to me.

I am pretty sure she would still weigh the see saw down if you both got on one.
As long as she is up in the air and not me then we are good.

Here is a gal who is 5' 7" tall and 160 lbs and is HOT HOT HOT HOT!!!! Even "heavier" girls like this can be super super sexy.

Speaking of, I enjoy these commercials for that group of men.

And yes, I enjoy seeing fashions featured for women my size and all others.

Study up on the psychology of marketing and you'll see that this goes for pretty much anything anyone is selling. So, what about plus-size models? They are just doing the job the advertisers hired them to do---not different than thin models. Essentially, this question is just another thread about fat women. I am sick and tired of the constant scrutinizing of a woman's body. I don't give a flying *f* about ads in magazines, TV, billboards and all the rest of it. If everyone put as much thought and effort into causes that are actually worthwhile, imagine how much more pleasant the world would be? What a sick and superficial species we are. And the advertisers can go *f* themselves.

Before I go--a question to the male posters who say there's nothing sexy about plus size women, I ask you this. If you were looking for female company and had only the following two ladies to try and convince to be your lover, who would you pursue? 1) a size 18 woman with plump smooth skin, ample breasts, luxurious hair, great sense of style, a lovely smile, healthy lifestyle, mentally sound, minty fresh breath, a kind heart, and really into love-making --or-- 2) a size 4 woman with a slender and toned body (looks great in tight jeans or a bikini), a 34DD boob job, a fake tan, a crooked nose, pimples, bleached out hair, smoker's voice and breath to match, fairly frigid unless she's drunk, and crabby as all hell....who would you pick as your lover?
The world doesn't work that way. It only works in the eyes of insecure girls who want to make themselves feel better momentarily

He never said women who aren't the size of VS models aren't sexy. I like how so many women try to compare extremes. As if there's no in between

A large number of women have negative opinions of them selves because a large number of men want a super model type female. And lets face it most of us aint. Yes we use every ounce of strength trying to obtain that model shape and size and some fight the scales all thier lives. Never learning to love themselves just the way they are. Yes its important to be healthy and you want to have confidence in how you look but as a society we put to much emphasis on the looks and weight of models.

Its refreshing to see that some men dont look at weight or size but at the total package.

I believe they should have the avarage plus size women with the stocky boxy shape or apple shape modeling the plus size clothes. Lets get real women to model, so we can tell what real women look like in the clothes. Just my honest opinon.
Here we go with the "real women" BS.

Just because a woman isn't fat/overweight like the majority of women in America doesn't make her any less of a "real woman". That term is just ridiculous and overused.

Agree~ " We are all real women" .... Sick of the media pitting women against each other! Love yourself, embrace you...

Honestly I don't ever want to see a plus size model. I can't really imagine why anyone, male or female, would. I want to see an ideal woman when I look at a model. I want to imagine what she would look like naked and with a plus size, that's just not a pretty picture.

Someone's self-esteem is their responsibility and no one else's. People are going to have their opinions of you and they are not always going to be favorable or pleasant. I suggest they learn to ignore them.
