There's been a lot of buzz on the Web about the recent picture of Lizzie Miller in Glamour magazine. I'll admit, I'm no skinny thing and look nothing like the women in these magazines, and I so appreciate the attention this is getting.
I will say that Lizzie is gorgeous and may be considered a plus-size model, but her overall appearrance is still not "typical" of every woman. She has no chins, her arms look skinny and she has no back fat. She just basically has bigger thighs, some stretch marks, and a little tummy (she just wasn't sucking in on this shot).
I just can't decide in my mind is it good for women and their body image? Should fashion magazines try to change the way we think about out bodies by having more realistic images in their pages, or do you enjoy looking at the surrealistic photos that are somewhat mythical in their representation of a woman's body?
