With positive reviews of its September issue still fresh in everyone’s mind, Glamour Magazine will feature eight nude and beautiful plus-size models in their October 2009 issue.
Glamour Magazine really has gone above and beyond its competitors lately when it comes to showing the more realistic side of women, rolls and all—and I’m willing to bet their sales will skyrocket when this issue hits the stands.
It’s long been known that women, especially teen girls, struggle with positive body issues. One can only imagine that if more magazines, especially popular fashion ones, embrace women of all shapes and sizes in their editorials, that it will start to have a positive impact on young women.
Although some may be a bit irritated that a woman larger than size six is considered “plus-sized,” some of the models do look to be around a size ten to twelve. But hey, at least they’re heading in the right direction. And, who knows, perhaps magazines like Vogue and Cosmopolitan will be inspired to follow suit.
