Plus-size model is term applied to an individual of larger stature (sometimes but not exclusively overweight or obese) who is engaged primarily in modeling plus-size clothing. Plus-size models also engage in work that is not strictly related to selling large-sized clothing, e.g., stock photography and advertising photography for cosmetics, household and pharmaceutical products and sunglasses, footwear and watches. Therefore plus-size models do not exclusively wear garments marketed as plus-size clothing. This is especially true when participating in fashion editorials for mainstream fashion magazines.Synonymous and interchangeable with plus-size model is ""full-figured model"", ""extended-sizes model"", and ""outsize model"". Previously, the term ""large size model"" was also frequently used.
