The thin girls out, the real women in !

We already notice it for a while, the nude pictures is fashion and the feminine press tries to show that the thinness dictat is over.

After the " American Glamour " which had published the pictures of a model with curvatures, Lizzie Miller (20 years), "it's now to Gala (number from 7 till 13 October), thanks to the impulse of its new chief editor, to post on the cover one, the representative glamour of the true big women, Marianne James, in Eve's dress, with a not ambiguous message : " Long live to big people ! ".
We discover a Marianne James beautiful, so glam and assuming perfectly his curvatures. She shows to everyone that we can be fat but beautiful and feel good in one's body. She denounces by these pictures the sufferings which women as them can undergo. The other people's opinion makes so many psychological damages as a gun can also make . She specifies that she tempted all her life to lose tons of weight but in vain ! Today, at the age of 47, she assumes her 107kg for 1,80m and shows them without complex thanks to this shooting.

To the detractors, you've to know that nobody used photoshop, except those classics on the luminosity, the make-up, the unification of the skin and the shadow set mask the intimate parts. The rest, it is the natural 100 %, the bourrelets also !
Other women magazines are not in rest, like the German biweekly "Brigitte" which does not appeal any more to the threadlike professional models for photos. The chief editor explained in an interview, as even these models so thin are systematically the object of retouch, as to mask the too visible bones for instance. He wishes to give another view angle, and shows the true life women, the girl to women of certain age, with personalities and forms so different but still beautiful. Moreover, those who will be pictured will be paid like professional model. But he specifies that the magazine will not be intended for all to fat women.

A huge bravo to Marianne James to have dared to show herself naked of a large-circulation weekly and to the magazines to show FINALLY the women of the life !

  1. 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'll be pleased to read you.
