Glamour magazine is urging you to join their Body Image Revolution in an attempt to celebrate all body types in the media. As you know, while most statistics say the average American woman is a size 14, most magazines, movies, and television shows primarily showcase women who are a size 2. So in the November issue of Glamour, there will be a shoot (the pic above is included) featuring seven full-figured supermodels.
I’m all for celebrating women of all sizes, after all, The Style and Beauty Doctor is is the premier style & beauty resource for women of all races, ages, & sizes. I just hope this doesn’t turn into a “us” vs “them” thing (the terms “real bodies” and “real women” irk me–all women are “real women”). The media needs to feature women of all sizes all the time–not just in “special” issues.
