But, honestly, I’m not going to find you as attractive as the fuller-figured women. If you’re a man, I’m curious what you really think.Take a look at the photos in the Plus Model magazine spread and tell me whether the waif or the bigger woman is more attractive to you. The bigger woman is a size 12-14, according to her bio.If you agree with me, I hope you’ll take the time to let the normal-sized women in your life know that you appreciate them not being anorexic and not trying to be something they’re not.
If you’d rather avoid the pictures, the woman here in the black dress is the plus-size model, Katya Zharkova.) I find the bigger woman far, far more attractive.
She started falling asleep in class and this previously attractive girl started taking on a “death camp survivor” look.
In college, I got to know her well and understood the emotional causes of the problem.
About eight or nine years ago, I dated a woman for a few months who was a model. She had a lovely face and a perfectly proportioned and perfectly sized body. This physically perfect woman was a “plus-size model.” Since I don’t pay attention to fashion or to modeling, I hadn’t consciously realized until then just how insane the world of modeling had become. And I didn’t realize just how warped most women’s images of their own bodies have become.
I’m thinking about this today because of publicity from a story in Plus Model magazine about the difference in size between mainstream models and plus-size models.
