Marquita Pring Reveals Plus Model Secret

Marquita Pring

As reported to WWD and widely across the Net, Marquita Pring reveals that she sometimes uses padding to accentuate her already gorgeous shape.

She told WWD:  ‘Some [clients] like you much smaller, [U.S.] size 10, size 8. Some people would prefer a 14 or 16. So for me, I’m right in the middle at a sort of small 14, high 12. So I pad sometimes since I’ve  got clients who would prefer a solid 14 or 16.

Reluctantly she said:

‘I don’t know if we should reveal this secret! They’re pieces of foam. So I just lay them flat on each hip underneath [hosiery].  They’re like a solid inch and a half thick… [and] make you seem all around wider.’

‘From the side you look kind of weird – and it feels weird. Like every now and then my arm gets caught on it and I’m like, wait, this isn’t me. But it’s better for me because I can still be healthy and work out and have the body I want. It’s a little bit of model magic.’

Is this OK ????    What do you think ?  Please post your comments below.
