Average-Sized Woman Tries On Ridiculously Small Sample Size Clothes
By Dorothy Tan, 05 Aug 2016
Considering that 67% of US women wear a size 14 or larger, the sample sized clothes—used for runway shows—that fit models who are often size 0 to 2 could hardly come across as being realistic.
To show how this “industry standard” is a far cry from what the average woman can actually wear, fashion writer Liz Black collaborated with website You Do You to create an editorial that shows just how ridiculously small sample size clothes are.
The result is a series of humorous, yet poignant, images—photographed by Kristiina Wilson—that brings attention to the body image issues that still plague the fashion industry.
In the images, Black is pictured with the clothes draped over or held against her body, as getting into the too-small garments is not possible without ripping them.
