Lizzie Miller: Plus Size Model
They say the average woman is a size 12, and the average model is a size 0. For the most part, we’d observed that most members of our peer group (girls in their mid twenties) no longer make themselves crazy to be a size 0, but we don’t think the battle with body image is ever completely won (or really, even close).
Glamour Magazine published this picture of “plus size” size 12 Lizzie Miller, and everyone has an opinion. What do we think? Is something like this in the media the first step for alleviating some of the pressure women have on their bodies? Or is there nothing we can do? Does this picture surprise you? Do you think this is what models should look like? Thoughts?
