Does Posh really think her body is the average size?

Victoria Beckham uses her body as a mannequin when fashion designing because she believes she’s a fair representation of your everyday woman.

The 37-year-old happily strips off to ensure her pieces don’t just look good on the teenagers walking the catwalks.

‘We always joke that we have this fabulously gorgeous 17-year-old model who is 6ft-whatever and I say, “OK, I’m going to put it on – I stand for the general public here”,’ says Victoria.

But the mum-of-4, who’s just 5ft 4in, is an extremely slender size 6 – while the average British female wears a size 16.

‘It’s how I work,’ Victoria tells Harper’s Bazaar.

‘I found it really difficult when I was pregnant and I couldn’t do that.

‘It’s part of the process. I’ll stand here in my knickers and start draping fabric over myself.’
