Quotable: Crystal Renn Says Plus-Sizing Isn’t So Baffling

Annika Harris / February 23, 2010

“Well, [in modeling] there is the standard, which is a 34-inch hip and then there is ‘plus’ that. Unfortunately, I think when people think of ‘plus’ they think of only size 18, but the great thing about what I do, is that they have been more inclusive of size 8’s and all the way up to bigger sizes like 20.

Personally, I wish there wasn’t this huge separation. I think it’s about being the size that you are, eating a healthy diet and doing moderate exercise — your body will settle where it’s supposed to be, whether that’s a 2 or a 16/18.”
