Since we Twittered about the real-looking Glamour model last week, her image has been burning up the internet and TV. She already has her own freakin’ Wikipedia page! Amazing how a single photograph of a woman with a normal belly can spark so much debate and excitement. Shows how starved the public is for evidence of variously-shaped bodies. Her name is Lizzi Miller, she’s twenty years old, and wears a size 12-14. Glamour’s editor-in-chief Cindi Leive says that the overwhelmingly positive response to the image will lead to the inclusion of more so-called plus-size models in their pages. Time, of course, will tell. We do have to say it’s notable that Ms. Miller’s image was included in a story about confidence and body image—a story about women who actually have a real tummy. It seems to us that a more radical use of her image would be in an ordinary layout, wherein her curves and gently shaped belly are simply part of the spread. We’d like to see this body modeling clothes made for a real girl’s shape—and not the focus of the article. Not that this isn’t a step in the right direction, but c’mon ladies, let’s not pretend that Glamour’s really breaking any serious barriers. Still, if it sells and they hear positive feedback, they’re likely to include more normal-lookin’ women, and we’re all for variety. So, stick by your word, Cindi Leive. Bring on the bellies and butts!
