  Now that is an interesting story. I once went to an antique clothing fashion show and one of the comments made was they have difficulty finding models small enough for the clothing. This is because of better nutrition not because of obesity. We all need to push for "normal" representations of healthy women rather than plus models.

    Yes! I posted this story to my facebook page cuz I have a lot of my former high s school students on there.....to.share w them. The other thing that surprises me is the plus-size models are now a size 4 instead of the sizes of the past.....which was 14-16. And thankfully we.consumers are balking! Go consumers!
