Crystal Renn on Plus Sizes

"Part of the problem is this focus on straight sizes and plus sizes. It is creating an "us and them" mentality. We need to change the way we approach the whole thing, and do away with these terms. All we are is a bunch of models, no matter what size. Among women at large there's no separation into straight sizes and plus sizes. The term "plus-size" leaves the public confused. In the industry a size eight is considered plus. In the wider world women don't think like that." [Independent]
