(BBC) A debate has emerged in Australia about whether overweight models who appear on the catwalk are glorifying obesity.


The debate follows the appearance of plus-size models in a Sports Illustrated swimsuit catwalk show.


An opinion article in Sydney’s Daily Telegraph criticised the use of larger models as "irresponsible", while a health expert said they promoted a "dangerous" message about health.


However, other experts say the catwalk should represent all body shapes.


The debate was ignited after columnist Soraiya Fuda wrote: "If the fashion industry decides to stop using models who appear to have starved themselves to skin and bones - as they should - they shouldn’t then choose to promote an equally unhealthy body shape."


However, speaking on local television, Sports Illustrated editor MJ Day said: "We have made a very positive statement that beauty is not ’one size fits all’."

Overweight not a problem. You get 2 for the price of 1.

Don't worry, the media will cram it down our throats till we do. Then what will obese want? Not enough fat people in movies? Special seating? Walmart discounts? Special recognition? Food discounts? I mean the more you consume the cheaper it should be, right?
