I'd like to say a big Hooray to Glamour for putting a more average-sized girl in the magazine, in a bikini no less!This lovely lady is in the May '09 issue modeling several swimsuits, both one and two-pieces.
I don't know about you all but I think she looks fabulous. I think this is a big step for such a major player in the fashion mag industry because the article wasn't simply about finding "plus-size" bathing suits, or dressing to camouflage your trouble spots...it was about embracing your body and working with what you've got. It sends the message that being healthy, strong and confident is beautiful, at all shapes and sizes. If you naturally look like a Victoria Secret model that's wonderful, but if you don't (and really...who does?) that's okay! Beauty takes many forms, and there's more than one body type that can rock a bikini!
How wonderful for women of all ages to see someone recognized as sexy and beautiful that looks a bit more like us than the gorgeous but nearly impossible to achieve "perfect" bodies that fill the pages of most magazines.
