Women ‘too fat’ to model: Katie Green and Traci Moslenko
Readers brought these two examples to my attention.
Wonderbra finds Katie Green too fat to model bras
Katie Green won an audition to model bras for Wonderbra, which used her on billboards with the message, “D to G, because we’re more than a handful.” Wonderbra had her sign up with Premier Model Management, a leading modeling agency. Premier told her to lose about 28 pounds of weight. It is irrelevant how much Katie Green weighs because her pictures and videos, shown above, reveal a woman who is well-suited to modeling bras. Katie was told that her size – size 12 U.K. – was unacceptable, and that she needed to be a size 8-10 U.K. She was told that most lingerie models managed by top-rated modeling agencies were a size 8 U.K. Incidentally, Katie happened to weigh 145 pounds at 5-foot-10.
Here is more of her ordeal.
“So I said, ‘With respect, my curves got me the Wonderbra job and brought me to you. But now you’re saying I’m too fat.’ They made it very clear they wanted me to lose two dress sizes.
“That would mean shedding two stone. I’d have been a bag of bones.
“But instead of listening to me, they just gave me dieting tips and told me I had to train at the gym every day.”
“I was banned from eating carbohydrates after 4pm and even told I couldn’t go out for a curry with my mates. I’m embarrassed to admit I started following their regime. I even started skipping dinner and fibbed to my mum that I’d eaten earlier.”
Katie lost 7lbs in just eight days and thought modelling work would flood in.
But she went on: “Every time the phone rang it wasn’t with an offer of work, it was to check on my weight loss.
“I was invited back to London by Premier. I thought, ‘Great, this must be for a new photoshoot,’ but they just wanted to MEASURE me to see how much weight I’d lost. I had to stand on scales then a tape measure came out to do all my vital statistics.”
Katie Green did the right thing and walked away. Subsequently Katie landed a job with Ultimo, another company selling underwear.
Traci Moslenko at the Janice Dickinson show
Traci Moslenko has appeared in the Janice Dickinson modeling show. Looking at her, it should come as no surprise that her ‘weight would be cause for concern.’
But Traci would be fat by whose standards?
Who are the people that find Katie Green and Traci Moslenko too fat for modeling?...
...even though Katie isn’t being considered for anything close to high-fashion modeling.
When Katie’s family contacted Premier Modeling Management for asking her to lose weight, the agency said,
“We advised Katie that commercial and lingerie models need to be an average size 10 as is requested by the market sector she wanted to model for.”
What market sector is this? A market sector is a group of businesses selling similar goods and services and hence directly competing with each other. So the market sector concerning Katie comprises of companies selling underwear to women in the general public. But judging by the comments, most people, including most women, are shocked that Katie and Traci are considered too fat for modeling.
We all know the answer. The homosexual fashion designers! Even when it comes to modeling underwear or lingerie, the homosexuals will prefer as little deviation from their adolescent-boy-look ideal as possible.
