GUANGZHOU, China, April 23 (UPI) -- China's largest model organized an engagement ceremony for herself and eight other plus-sized women in China's Guangdong province.

Zeng Jing, a 242-pound woman known as the largest model in China, organized Monday's event in Guangzhou and chose the other eight women from a list of 246 candidates over 165 pounds, Xinhua, China's official state-run news agency, reported Thursday.

Zeng, who designed her wedding dress, said she and the other women wanted to use the event to highlight the concerns of larger people.
