H&M using "plus-size" models for swimsuits

BALTIMORE - H&M is making normal women everywhere happy with their recent swimsuit ads featuring "plus-size" model Jennie Runk.

Runk, who calls herself a plus-size model, is featured in the "normal" swimsuit section, not plus-size.  

H&M is getting kudos for using Runk as a normal model, not just in the plus-size section.

Some critics have criticized the company for using size 12 mannequins in their retail stores, as opposed to the normal size 4 or 6 mannequins.

The average size of American women is size 12.
