Every day, we are inundated with images of slender models in the media. Yet, with the average dress size of women growing larger every year, we thought it might be nice to showcase some incredibly gorgeous women with more “real-life” figures.
Each of these ladies is curvy, voluptuous, and wears a size 12 or larger, and each one is guaranteed to get your heart racing just as much (or more!) as their slim model counterparts.
1. Tara Lynn
Tara Lynn is a plus-sized model who is best known for gracing the cover of the French Elle magazine. The article (and Lynn’s gorgeous photos, like the one pictured above) was about the changing trends of fashion to accommodate more “real-sized” women, and it caused quite a stir in the fashion world. Lynn is a UK size 18, which is about a 14/16 on U.S. sizing charts.
3. Christina Mendez

8. Ashley Graham
