words kill, words give life

plus size models? yes, please!

Posted in fashion by Kaitlin on October 10, 2009

Glamour magazine caused an  uproar when they used size 12 model Lizzie Miller in the pic below. Why? Women (and men) were ecstatic to see a realistic body shape in a fashion mag. 

But wait, there’s more – instead of just saying they would use more plus size models, Glamour is actually doing it! The November issue will  feature seven models confidently rocking their voluptuousness.

Glamour editor, Cindi Leive, is quick to say they’re just giving readers what they want after “over 1,000 of you posted your own joyous reactions to a figure with curves.” Like what you see? Then support it! Go buy a copy of Glamour or send your comments to Leive to support the recognition that all sizes can be beautiful.

    I’ve always been a fan of plus-size models! There’s a great site with many images of plus-size models here:


    They’re all gorgeous.

    The site’s forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.

    I hate how those body types are considered plus-size.
