I think a better question is: How do you feel about the reinforcement for such a body type in the modeling industry?posted 11 months ago
Well, to be perfectly honest, and it is probably not PC, and it promotes what Idi Amin says reinforces an unhealthy and unrealistic body type, but OMG, I wish i looked like one of them!!posted 11 months ago
Yeah I think it’s great that you don’t hire people who are unheathly, it’s helping the models and society.
I’m personally sick of it. They looked ok for a while and then in the 90s the whole skinny thing started to get out of hand. I get how models usually have naturally high metabolisms and are tall so they are skinny without dieting, but the modeling norm nowadays is so extreme that even these people have to diet and take drugs to fit into the standards. I just can’t relate to seeing a tall sickly thing on the catwalk or in magazines anymore-I will never be close to that nor do I want to, and I certainly can’t relate to the clothes of someone whose body type is so far from mine.
Fortunately, there’s been a real backlash the past couple of years and I think I’ve been seeing some more natural-looking people in magazines.posted 11 months ago

It seems there’s a difference between runway models and magazine models- I am jealous of the magazine models. The runway models look like walking clothing hangers, which I suppose is the point- you wanna see the clothes, not the body they are in. It’s sad.posted 11 months ago
I understand the point of them.
They are there to be a clothes hanger. They’re not supposed to distract from the clothes. The slimmer they are, the most “invisible” they appear and therefore the clothes are the focus. A curvier girl, no matter how amazing she looked, would attract more attention than the clothes would.
Not to mention the fact that sample sizes are cheaper to make since they use less fabric.
A lot of girls happen to be slim and I think the backlash against size zero is causing more harm than good. Naturally slim girls are being persecuted.
By the way, I say all this as a plus-size girl.posted 11 months ago
I was actually in Israel when they passed that law. It was a very thrilling moment. I definitely promote living a healthy lifestyle.posted 11 months ago
Some people are just born thin. It’s part of their genes. But there are also some people who desire to be models and put their bodies in detrimental health conditions just to become what they perceive as “beautiful” and “model-esque”. I guess it’s just correct that they don’t hire models who are underweight and unhealthy since the modeling industry is a stressful business. Talent agencies will lose business opportunities just because they hired irresponsible models. This is a good way of promoting health.posted 11 months ago
