Crystal Renn wants designers to make sample sizes bigger. The stunning model, who recently went from a size 12 to a size 8-10, says that fashion houses have a responsibility to young girls and believes that making clothes in more accessible sizes would help their self-esteem.

Renn said, “I think that the solution would be to make the sample size an 8
or a 10. It’s currently a 2, or a 4 if you’re very lucky. If you made it an
8 or a 10, then bigger girls – even 12s and 14s – could somehow get into the
clothes, and also the 8s and 6s and 4s and 2s could have the clothes pinned
on. Right now, we’re all talking all the time about how we want to see
fuller-figured women in fashion, but that’s really impossible if we don’t have
the clothes.”

Crystal, 24, also says she doesn’t listen to what people say
about her body because everyone has different opinions. She said, “I absolutely read what people say about me, because I want to know where we’re weak in this whole conversation. So I read blog comments. And one person will say, ‘Wow, she’s so fat. Look at her. She’s so obese.’ And then right underneath, someone else will say, ‘Look how emaciated she is. She’s so anorexic.’ Fat is relative. One person’s thin is someone else’s so-called fat.”
