(But, hey, at 74 I still wear the same size--14--that I did 40 years ago so what do I have to complain about?)

I think the size 12 model looks MUCH better...the size 4 looks skinny and doesn't have much in the way of curves. I wear a size 7 myself, but I don't think that a size 12 is a "plus" size...at least not in my eyes, anyhow.

Size 12 for runway is plus size but in reality it's actually the average size.
Not all of the runway models are super skinny, they just seem that way in magazines because of the way they contort their bodies, and then some photoshopping just makes it look worse.

Aside from runway there's always print/commercial for those who are shorter and don't meet the standard for runway.

I see why they prefer the models to meet a certain standard in height and size. It's so that the models can change in and out of clothes with any hassle. The people who dress them during shows don't have to worry about finding the right size for each model because they all basically fit the same size. They're not suppose to be "pretty", they're job is to model clothes. Like I said, walking hanger.
I generally find thin & short women to be more attractive than thin & tall ones.
