  • 'These women are beautiful and inspiring!' Viewers praise 'refreshing' documentary highlighting the success of curve models – but some question how a 12 can be considered ‘plus size’

    Gushing viewers have praised Channel 5's documentary Curvy Girls Stripped Bare for its 'refreshing' insight into the modelling industry - which focused solely on plus size success stories.

    The two-part series, which continues next Tuesday, went behind the scenes at Milk Model Management, which is dominating the scene with its in demand 'curve' girls.

    Former model Anna Shillinglaw, 41, who herself started out as a 'straight' model before moving into plus-size, set up the agency eight years ago and places no limit on the size of the models she hires.

    Her models Felicity Hayward, 30, Sonny Turner, 20, and Hayley Hasselhoff, 26, who all featured in the programme, revealed how cultivating their curves has had a direct impact on their earnings.

    But while viewers said they were 'loving' the 'amazing' models featured, some said on Twitter they were 'disturbed' to see how women are categorised as plus size by the fashion industry from size 12 and up - a benchmark one said made ordinary women feel 'like poop in comparison'.
