Plus-Size Nancy Upton Enters Model Search [Pic]

This is Nancy Upton from Dallas, Texas. When Upton heard about American Apparel”s search for a plus-size model to promote its new XL clothing line (a contest the company is calling “The Next Big Thing“), she decided to submit her application. Not as a chance to ignite a modeling career, but to out American Apparel for what she thinks is segregating larger women from thinner women.


“I dont believe that beauty should be qualified as BECAUSE of someones size or IN SPITE of someones size. Beauty is beauty, its fluid, its objective and it doesnt need to be justified to or by anyone,” she writes on her blog. You”ll find lots more photos of her there.


The funny thing is, Upton is currently in first place (out of 991 submissions) in the Next Big Thing contest (which looks like it”s going to be reader chosen). Go vote for her and let”s see how this thing turns out.


Good luck, Nancy.

PS: I”d hit it in a non-chauvistic way.

American Apparel is holding a search for its next model, a plus-size model. Upton is entering out of protest. Her story:

    To anyone who knows more about this than me: She`s a little more than a size 12, right? I`m thinking more along the lines of 14... maybe 16?

    Correct me if I`m wrong. Does height factor in?

    Plus-size model Nancy Upton looks nothing like super skinny swimsuit model Kate Upton. A world of difference. I still find this Nancy Upton attractive, though. Her body shape is a lot like my wife`s body, and needless to say I think she`s hot

    There is nothing attractive about her, or any fat person for that matter. Doesn`t make me an non-nice individual so you can all piss off in advance for your replies to that statement, I know how sensitive the people are here.. I personally prefer a more.... Hm... "Healthy" looking body.

    Oh, and beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so if someone does find her beautiful well that`s their idea of beauty and that`s cool. Just not this guy.

    I do agree with her point about plus sized models being segregated from others though.

    Forever alone? Nah, not me. I`ve been married for 5 years. And I can find plenty of reasons why that is not healthy but if I really need to point any of them out to you, I can already see it is not worthwhile as you are clearly not a very intelligent person.

    When modelling clothes for a commercial clothing company, size is genuinely relevant.

    I think she probably meant to say that beauty is subjective rather than objective. I doubt if she intended to argue that beauty is completely independent of the observer, that every person appears identically beautiful to every person. She probably meant the opposite.

    Neither is completely true, but it`s certainly a lot more subjective than objective.

    Which is irrelevant to the issue of selling clothes, since whether your clothes fit you or not is a different thing entirely.

    I`d hire her to model clothes. She`s pretty, lively and confident (and shows that in body language). She`s likely to be the best person for the job she doesn`t want.

    Not really, no. She`s a bit off healthy unless she does more cardio-vascular exercise than you`d expect.

    Stop contributing to eating disorders and grow up.

    That leads me to believe that you know your argument is weak, so you`re trying to cover it up.

    Off on a tangent, does anyone know why the obscure and inaccurate way of measuring women`s clothing sizes is different in the USA and the UK? She`d be size 16 here, maybe 18. Definitely not 12. Although it would depend on what manufacturer she bought her clothes from, of course, since the scale is inaccurate.

    @Angillion "Off on a tangent, does anyone know why the obscure and inaccurate way of measuring women`s clothing sizes is different in the USA and the UK?"

    It`s because when a woman see`s she fits into a smaller size she`s more likely to buy because of the rush of self esteem. That`s why sizes keep getting bigger.

    "to out American Apparel for what she thinks is segregating larger women from thinner women"
    This is such a stupid Chick Thing to do.

    Women complain the beauty industry puts unrealistic standards and expectations on them to be thin and pretty. Then when they get a product line that caters to larger size gals they complain it`s segregating thin/larger women.

    And women can`t understand why they drive men crazy?
    So glad I`m gay.

    Angilion: she may not be a perfect model of fitness. She may not be able to run a mile or carry 50 pound boxes. But she`s not dying of high cholesterol or blood sugar either. It`s possible to be a little fat and not be sickly. She`s healthy enough, she`s just not fit or in good shape.

    She`s a pretty hot chick, and her blog is well written and funny, which means she is also INTELLIGENT. And incidently, the American Apparel contest has ended, so someone keep an eye on it to see who they pick.

    Anorexic girls and fat chicks.
    Why can`t models look like just the average girl?

    What big girls don`t get is that super models aren`t necessarily thin because people think it looks better, but because fashion designers save so much more money on fabric.

    wtf obviously a fat chick cant fit in a size 0. and not every store can afford to have EVERY size, so they`re gonna have to be segregated a little bit. lose some weight, its not cute. i dont know why we`re putting unhealthy on a pedestal.

    @ haveheart, you`re forgetting that being too thin is also unhealthy. someone 5`11`` and a size 0 isn`t necessarily healthy... but sure - being a huge size isn`t going to be good for you. being a size 12,14,16,18+ doesn`t mean you are unhealthy and a lot of fashion lines target smaller sizes and frames.

    @haveheart, the irony, you have no drating heart

    beauty is subjective, just cause you think every girl has to be a skinny bitch like you to look cute doesnt mean everyone does, your personality alone would turn off countless guys, how about you gain some weight and get drating jolly

    "wtf obviously a fat chick cant fit in a size 0. and not every store can afford to have EVERY size, so they`re gonna have to be segregated a little bit. lose some weight, its not cute. i dont know why we`re putting unhealthy on a pedestal."

    A size 0 isn`t healthy if you have to continuously alter your eating habits and exercise to do so.

    I`m naturally an 8. I work out, I jog, swim, bike, run.. and I don`t eat very much. This is just my "size." I`ve been an 8 since freshman year of high school, 5`8", 140 lbs., and it hasn`t varied much since then.

    Some people are a little bigger, some a little smaller. Sure, if you can`t run down the street without gasping for breath, you`re unhealthy, but plenty of skinny people can`t do that either.

    Lol, get it? It`s her cherry pie.

    Also: You have to divide your models by size because different sized clothes fit different people. A little twig can`t model the same outfit as a bigger gal.

    Less idealism, more pragmatism.

    SarahofBorg:

    When I wrote "She`s a bit off healthy unless she does more cardio-vascular exercise than you`d expect.", I did not mean that anyone who`s a bit fat is sickly. That`s not the same thing. It`s not even similar.

    poo she`s hot. Like, perfect. I don`t understand how anyone could not want to drat that.

    Also, models are so skinny because they literally want the clothes to drape over them. They are displaying clothes. Think mannequin or coat rack. Plus size models are the same. She probably doesn`t wear plus size clothes. Don`t believe me? Go into lane bryant.

    also I guess for the hell of it, I`m fairly healthy (okay, not really; I smoke a lot weed) but I walk almost everywhere and sometimes this means miles and miles a day. I`m just naturally a size 6-8. If you don`t like that I`m not a twig, you don`t have to drat me.

    i don`t think anorexic should be put on a pedestal either. but everyone`s like "omfg those models shouldn`t be that skinny, lets yell at them and then bring OTHER unhealthy people into the fashion world! that makes sense!"
    i think models should be "normal" sizes, not too skinny or too fat. we`re killing fire with fire. i don`t know why we all yell at an anorexic model but then we put someone else unhealthy but on the other side of the spectrum and everyone cheers.

    @Haveheart Sweetie, you don`t know if she`s unhealthy. What she is, is a far more realistic representation of the vast majority of women.

    I get the gist of what you are saying, and I don`t necessarily disagree. We should promote a healthy example for people to emulate. Problem is, that just as beauty is subjective and diverse, so is health, more or less. BMI are so incorrect, and what a healthy person looks like is, well, just as subjective and diverse.

    We should be lauding the fact that in magazines, and television, a far more realistic and attainable standard of beauty is being portrayed for the young ones growing up, who have a much harder time developing a sense of self worth than previous generations had.

    P.S. I for one think she`s gorgeous. Even more so for being comfortable in her body

    This is stupid. She`s arguing that modelling is art and that bigger can be better and all that crap. Fact of the matter is, no. Modelling isn`t art, it`s marketing. A fashion douche/guru makes a piece of clothing using specifications so the clothes fit the model. How big must the model be? Exactly the sizes that sell the best when put on an ad. Tall, thin, pretty and whatever else helps sell their crap.

    It`s ludicrous for her to expect to be a model if she isn`t the right proportions. If you can`t make yourself fit in the clothes you`re going to be modelling, then the problem is with you, not the agency.
