I don’t read glossy magazines very often, but when I do I usually dislike what I read/see. The majority of them are crammed full of images of super skinny celebrities, their diets, fitness routines and what they wear.
If I was a fellow super skinny I’m sure I wouldn’t mind this at all, in fact I’d probably read them a hell of a lot more, but I’ve always been a curvy girl and when I was in my early/mid teens pictures like this did nothing for my self confidence. I’ve always had issues with my weight and went through quite a lot of bullying in high school because of it, but even now I’m a size 14/16 (which is now average apparently), I still worry what people think when they look at me.
So imagine my absolute delight when I picked a magazine up to read during my break today and they were saying buh-bye to thigh gaps and visible rib cages! Maybe now we’ll see the return of figures like Marilyn Monroe and I won’t feel like such an elephant as I walk down the street. Although if I had the option of being a size 16 or a size 8/10, I’d still choose the latter.
