I feel like many communities have a different idea of plus sized. Plus sized according to most American stores is US size 14. Plus sized according to the models in the fashion industry is US 6.
So... what is the "riding community's" "plus size"?
can I ask why you are asking? Is it for finding a fitting piece of clothing, or that you don't know how to place yourself, or someone else.?
Plus size used to be OVER 14, but now it is OVER 16 , for a lot of stores.
I see a LOT of fat people in the US. When I went to Italy recently, I did not see hardly ANY fat people. The only fat ones were tourists, like me.
So, in Italy , a size 12 is probably huge, whereas it is average in the US.
