Naked Curvy Women Are In
Glamour ran an image of a nude plus-sized model in September. The mag got big ups from its readership. The natural conclusion? A picture of a whole bunch of naked, curvy women for the November issue. This sneak preview photo was just released. ----->
The dolla dolla billz seem to be voting for more realistic images of women. The streets (and the news editor position at the Alibi) are stocked with full figures. It’s always been curious to me that what we look like and what we want to look like are so disparate. I assumed that the mags kept promoting the stick-with-tits template because that’s what people wanted to see. Or, at least, that’s what people were trained to want to see. Perhaps that’s changing, and the glossies are finally taking notice.
