This model is considered plus-size? Really???

NEED TO KNOW
  • In the fashion industry, size 8 is the new plus-size
  • In the real world, most plus-size clothes start at size 14!

Model Robyn Lawley is gorgeous. 

She's not a size 0 or even a size 6, but according to the fashion industry, this is what a plus-size model looks like.  "Plus-size" is a term for models who are a size 8 or bigger.  Photos of Lawley from a Cosmopolitan magazine spread went viral after people found out she's considered plus-size. 

HLN's Mike Galanos is bringing up this weighty issue with our panel, including two real models who aren't pin-thin.
