BEING a model and a size 18 isn’t necessarily two things you might put together.

That definitely isn’t true for budding model Natasha Rhodes, aged 20, of Poplars Avenue, Orford.

She has been selected to compete in plus size modelling contest Miss British Beauty Curve in London in July.

Natasha says reactions have varied since she decided to model larger clothes.

“People react differently,” she said.

“Most are really positive and think that it’s brilliant.

“The average woman isn’t a size six, so modelling this way is showing women in their natural light.”

Natasha, who models for an agency and has done work for online clothes sop ASOS, is now looking forward to the competition.
