Glamour Publishes Picture of Average-Sized Woman, Hell Freezes Over

Ladies, if you want to feel good about yourself, don’t read women’s magazines. Nothing makes you feel like a fat tub of lard more than page after glossy page of genetic mutants in desperate need of a cracker or two. But in the September issue of Glamour, there’s actually one page that’s making women breathe a sigh of relief: p. 194. Granted it’s only one page out of a couple hundred produced each and every month, but the picture of the average-sized woman in all her glory is apparently making readers write into Glamour in droves with thanks and gratitude, according to Editor-in-Chief Cindi Leive. (Of course, she doesn’t mention all the crazies that must be writing in calling the model a fat tub of lard, but why ruin the celebration — albeit the mini one — of realism.)

She looks HOT, HOT, HOT!!!


i think she looks fine plus it has been my experince that girls with meat on their bones are the best lovers..

About perfect model looking women vs actual women, I belive you women are at fault about society’s direction in respect to looks. You women keep buying all the glamour/fashion/designs mags that show all this fabrication when it comes to female looks. If women would stop buying all those mags, money would talk, and mags would start dropping those models in favour of real actual women. You have the last word, but I am afraid one thing is what women say about this issue, another one what women collectively are willing to do about it. Something like gasoline prices, financial downturn… Read more »

I’m a size 6/8, and ever since I had my son, my belly looks like that (albeit, with a lot more stretch marks!). I’ve been so self-conscious about it, despite compliments on my body from my husband and the few girls I’ve been with since. I hope more magazines start publishing pictures like this one. It’s about time our society’s women and girls see what regular, average-size women look like.
