So, the conclusion from this piece is: If there were so many "big" people in Agentina, then there would be clothing for this (then considerable large) group. However, it seems that it is more a minority problem, rather than something for the mainstream.
It is also interesting that this phenomenon is clearly affecting only women, thus my extend of actual knowledge on this topic is very limited.. So, what does the other sex say about this?
Is it really so disappointing to see a dress you can't wear, because you are too big?
Or do you think "crap, then I will buy something that fits me!"?

I have some sympathy for plus size models because they can often be very aesthically pleasing, yet are not appreciated widely as some less aesthetically pleasing thinner models.

But this is just sad, its a classic case of politicians with to much time on there hands

Yeah, I remember that not two centuries ago, there were artists, who loved to depict plus-size models :)
And I think that this notion is still available, but the twisted "Greek" idea of the muscular man has also transformed the woman to a thin, agile person. And then everyone took this idea as the ideal shape for men and women.

As a wise woman once said: "No woman can be too rich or too thin."

A woman can be too thin, believe me!  I'd take 15 pounds overweight over 15 pounds underweight any day!
