Re: Agencies suppressing plus-size models
The situation IS disgusting. It's kind of scary too, to discover that an agency would engage in these kinds of behind-the-scenes shenanigans at all. You've got to wonder what other games they play when it comes to getting certain models included or excluded from jobs, whether in minus-size or plus-size modelling. Yeesh.
At any rate, the agencies in this case probably didn't want their walking cadavers alongside the plus-size models because they knew that by contrast with the gorgeously curvy girls, their waifs would look even more pitiful and malnourished, and everyone would prefer the beauty of the fuller-figured models.
