Elle Quebec Features Plus-Size Model Justine LeGault (PHOTO, VIDEO)

Justine LeGault is a knockout!

The Canadian plus-size model covers the Elle Quebec May 2013 issue flaunting her gorgeous curves in a white blouse and nothing else.

LeGault, who is a size 14, took to her Facebook page thanking fans for the positive response she received.

"The fact that I only got positive feedback about my ELLE cover truly makes me happy. It seems people aren't so shocked anymore to see curves in the medias. This is great news!"

Elle Quebec certainly wasn't afraid to show off the blond beauty's curves. The cover photo features the 5'9 model's bare legs and thighs front and centre.

The magazine isn't the first trend-setter to feature curvy models.

Recently, Swedish retailer H&M used plus-size model Jennie Runk for a swimwear campaign on their website and American retailer Ralph Lauren used plus-size model Robyn Lawley in its advertising, a first for the company.

Fashion magazines of course have been embracing plus-size models for years including Vogue Italia and French Elle, however critics are quick to point out that they aren't doing enough to feature curvier women.

We hope that more magazines like Elle Quebec embrace plus-size models and feature more of them on their covers.
