It's about time

Glamour honors plus-size models in their november issue...

"About two months ago, Glamour started receiving letter after letter about the exuberant smile--and naturally curvy tummy--of a model who'd appeared in a small photo on page 194 of our September issue. ('This picture is absolutely amazing,' wrote one. 'Finally, a picture of a woman with a rounded, squishy, real belly!') I wrote here about the reader reaction, and about 'the woman on page 194' herself, 21-year-old model/singer/softball player Lizzie Miller, who went on to be interviewed everywhere from Oprah Radio to Access Hollywood. But the most important conversation took place right here on, where over 1,000 of you posted your own joyous reactions to a figure with curves. 'Lizzi, you are radiant,' wrote one. 'Shine on, sister.' (Men loved the picture too: 'I speak on behalf of all men: she is stunningly beautiful,' went one typical comment. 'Please, make more of her.')"

  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.
