Are Thin Models Going Out of Style?
We’ve been dealing with the concept of fashion magazines airbrushing models to look thinner and prettier for years, but just when we thought that it was out of control, we find out that apparently, thin isn’t in—at least like it used to be.
According to Blisstree.com, magazines are now airbrushing models to make them look heavier, after discovering that thin doesn’t always sell.
“I have to airbrush clients’ to make them appear bigger and more womanly before I submit photographs,” a talent manager told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column, according to the site. “Skinny doesn’t sell.”

The reason so many people are objecting is because people don't want to promote anorexia, and in all honesty, there's a reason women have hips...to be curvy. It is appealing to men in general, to have some healthy curve. No, they don't want unhealthy or obese women (again, in general), but they don't want a coat hanger either.
This is a good sign, and I really hope that women who are strong and healthy start being used for modeling.
It is reality finally slapping beauty magazines in the face for trying to make women feel insecure and taking unheathy habits. Nothing wrong with some meat on the bones as long as they don't look like a thanksgiving turkey!!
