Is it time to ban the word plus size?

Crawford and fellow JAG model Philomena Kwao go on many of the same castings as models who are a size 0 or 4. Although clients do sometimes request girls who are a specific size, either because they have a certain look in mind or their clothes are only sampled in that particular size, they are just as likely to request girls based on ethnicity, personality, or any number of factors that have little of nothing to do with their dress size. Whatever the criteria, the clients make their requests and the agencies send the girls they think will best fulfill their needs. "Sometimes clients think they want a size 4 girl, but a size 8 girl actually ends up filling out their clothes better, even though that's not what they thought they were looking for," said Stephens.
