I have never seen a plus size model that looks like me.
Never seen extra-wide hips, a stretch mark or two…I have never seen cellulite
on the pages of Roman’s, Woman Within, or even a Torrid add.
If this is the case, what consumers are these clothiers actually trying to attract to
their store? It conveys a message of exclusion. “You can buy our clothes, but we
wouldn’t dare put your love handles on the covers of our magazines.”
I find myself overly frustrated at times by the lack of plus size women being
featured on the covers of a plus size magazine, and even more so that I can’t do
anything about it. So who IS the plus size woman?
Is she America’s Next Top Model’s first “full-size” (not plus) model, Whitney Thompson?
Or is it the face we see time and again in the Torrid mailers, Georgina Burke?
