Plus-Size Pretties in a Lady Mag

by Eliza C. Thompson

Usually we don’t have anything good to say about traditional lady mags (or for that matter, Fox News), but this month, Glamour’s finally on to something — plus-size models! Plus-size really meaning ‘normal-size,’ ‘healthy-looking,’ and ‘totally beautiful.’ Glamour’s November issue, out on Tuesday, will feature a photo shoot with plus-size models Kate Dillon, Crystal Renn, and Lizzie Miller, and in honor of the occasion, Fox News has compiled a slideshow of several plus-size models looking just as fly as ‘regular-size’ models.

Apparently, after Glamour printed one photo of a plus-size model with a bit of stomach fat showing, readers clamored for more and the editors actually listened. Finally, somebody realized that looking at pictures of size-000 girls doesn’t make most of us feel good about our bodies. Now if only Vogue and Elle would follow suit and give the models in the slideshow a chance to add something besides Celebrity Fit Club to their resumes. But just FYI — Glamour isn’t the first magazine to buck the thin-model trend. BUST has been putting plus-size ladies in its pages for 15 years!
