What Is "Real"?

Tuesday, March 23, 2010

I am thrilled the fashion industry is promoting the bodies of full-figured women.  However, I am disappointed at the fact many magazines and bloggers such as Perez Hilton are referring to them as “real women”.  It is as if they are saying naturally thin women are not real.  Just because a woman has a petite and small frame does not mean she has an eating disorder.  The runway should feature women and men of different shapes and sizes but in reality, they are all real.  This world is filled with apple shapes, pear shapes, S-curves, and no curves.  The industry needs to respect all sizes and cease the labeling of what is “real”.

They all look pretty real to me.
