Thankful Thursday

 
 
This article is hitting the internets today, and I am thankful someone in the fashion world
has their eyes open.
Although I think these models are FAR from Plus size, I am thankful that some stores are actually displaying them as options for shoppers.
I know I would feel a hell of a lot better about myself if I saw these instead of the
pre-puberty bodies often displayed:

I've seen the article too.

I just think it is ridiculous that so many mannequins are such out of the ordinary sizes (a bit like Barbie) that clothing always has to be pinned together at the back to fit - even the smallest sizes. It's not like we want to celebrate obesity. But it would be nice if normal, healthy sizes were seen as acceptable in this society, and not as "plus size."

Oh - and have a look at these ads! Shows how much society has changed in 40 years or so. http://shine.yahoo.com/photos/back-women-wanted-fat-vintage-slideshow/too-skinny-fun-photo-2422636-192700427.html

Hi from ICLW...I would def prefer to look at the mannequin that is more realistic and she def does not look plus size more normal.
