    You have to keep in mind that Burda plus starts at a 44. That’s like a 12 in US sizes. I hate to say it, but clothes are modelled better by a tall body without too much shape. Plus sized models are generally at the low end of the plus sizes- like a 14 US. This woman is probably at the low rage of plus. This isn’t to say that these things won’t look good on us bigger gals, and the nice thing about sewing your own clothes is that you can tailor them to fit perfectly. And when clothes fit perfectly, you’ll look like a million bucks, no matter what your size.

      It’s a 12 in the US? Wow, that’s nuts. I have vintage dresses that are a 12 that fit me 20 years and 20 lbs ago.

      I’m not plus sized, but I do get what people are saying to some extent. They want to see themselves. Unfortunately, that’s not what modern modeling has ever been about.
      I’ve often wondered though, if a lot of these comments are by people who don’t have a lot of experience with sewing or fitting. By this point, I can figure out just by looking at the technical drawing if something will work on my body ;)

    I kind of wish BurdaStyle would use a little closer to plus-size models. Some of your other models in the past were a little more plus looking, I don’t know why you keep using models that appear pretty thin. It would be nice to see some of these on an actual plus-size gal. I know we all are different shapes and sizes, but I have yet to see a plump model on your site. I’m challenging you, BurdaStyle!

    The model is nowhere near plus size. What a shambles, burdastyle, again!
