Former Sports Illustrated model and current British Vogue cover girl Kate Upton knows all too well about the perils of sample sizes. As she has a wonderfully curvaceous figure (there was a reason she was in the Sports Illustrated pages, you know!) she has first-hand experience of struggling to fit in some of the designer clothes in their miniscule sizes.
“I’m sure every designer has a certain person in mind who they would ideally like to wear their clothes, but the problem is that a lot of the time that person doesn’t actually exist, unless she is a 15-year-old model,” she says in the new issue of the fashion Bible.
“I don’t really have a personal opinion on whether they should change the sizes of samples or not, but I do think it’s a topic that should be looked at, and I do think there won’t be many women buying those clothes, if, size-wise, they don’t seem realistic.”
We couldn’t agree more, and applaud her for speaking out about it and addressing the issue. A “dumb blonde” she most certainly is not!
