Glamour magazine received a flurry of comments from fans worldwide for their September 2009 issue that featured model Lizzie Miller, with her curves, belly roll and seemingly sans-airbrushed body. Readers loved it!

Then in their November 2009 issue, they went all out with a shoot featuring a group of plus-sized models in the buff. Readers seemed to embrace the bold move to feature nude, curvaceous women and further communication occurred regarding plus-sized models and standards of beauty.

The website The Judgment of Paris has been paying homage to curvaceous women since 2002. Here you can find a list of successful plus-sized models and engage in dialogue in their voluptuous forum. The ability to embrace beauty in all shapes, sizes and varieties is a healthy trend that hopefully sticks for the long haul. You’ll be the judge!
