V Magazine's Issue With Size


Hello, Curvies! By now, you've probably heard that highly anticipated copies of V Magazine's "Size" Issue are hitting store shelves this month. By now, we also know that a plus-size model does not usually mean a plus-size woman. As MSNBC points out this week, the average American woman is considered to be a size 14 - and around 41 percent of those are a larger size. But so far the campaign is getting a positive reception (or at least well-wishes) and we think the pictures released so far are truly gorgeous. The poses range from semi-nude to fully dressed. V's editor-in-chief says, "Big, little, pint-size, plus-size — every body is beautiful. This issue is out to prove it." And let's just be honest: Crystal Renn, who is prominently featured, transcends "size-ism". But what do you think about the photos? Are layouts like this a step in the right direction? Tell us after the jump. Find more pictures at Models.com

I've always been a fan of fuller-figured models. There's a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.

I love Marquita's picture! She is stunning! I am saving that picture for when I take my boudoir portraits. As a size 14-16 I am in love with my curves and my wedding dress shows it! Awesome post!!!
