-- Calvin Klein’s racy ads have always created buzz, but now their newest underwear ad is under scrutiny, and model Myla Dalbesio, a size 10, is right in the thick of it.
“For fashion industry standards, straight size models are from sizes 0 to size 6, and for plus size models, they are from size 10 and up,” Cynthia Bailey, CEO of the Bailey Agency School of Fashion, told ABC News.
While Calvin Klein has never billed its “Perfectly Fit” underwear line as a plus-size product, the connection picked up Internet steam after Dalbesio, 27, talked to Elle magazine about how other brands have cast her as a plus-size model.
