Fashion Mag Says No Skinnies Allowed
There’s been a trend lately towards women with curves and away from skinny Minnie models that look unhealthy—and this trend is
continuing to take the fashion and media world by storm.
According to the Daily Mail, UK fashion magazine Slink is helping to promote healthy body images with a bimonthly publication devoted to curvy ladies. The fashion and beauty magazine, geared towards fuller-figured women, is led by editor Rivkie Baum, who was a size 22 as a teenager.

“Rivkie has banned ‘straight’ models (the industry term for girls size 10 and below) from her magazine,” says the Daily Mail. Instead of using runway images like most magazines, Baum uses a fashion illustrator to “‘supersize’ the catwalk looks, showing exactly how they would appear on a fuller figure.” The magazine takes it a step further by banning diet and plastic surgery ads from its pages as well.

I'm a guy, and will always feel that curvy or larger, is more sexy. Yes, most models, look like thin, 10 year old boys, so yes! it's time for a change. Of course there is a limit, and health is always a concern. But, all of the thin girls I know, are obsessed with working out, or scared to go out for dinner. Give me a curvy girl that's confident and fun any day!
Men commenting on women's pant sizes is about as ridiculous as a woman commenting on the fit and size of a jock strap. So all you men out there saying that wearing a size 10 is fat, get over yourselves - you have no idea what you're talking about. I'm 5'10" and wearing a size 10 actually makes me underweight for my height and frame.
If you knew the true size of the pants that girl you're eyeballing across the bar was wearing, you'd be knocked off your barstool onto your own fat @ss.
