Body Image in the Fashion Industry

A Plus Model Magazine in America has written an article that claims that most runway models meet criteria for anorexia. The made this comment by making some statistics available comparing the percentages of the demand of skinny models now and previously.

This has been an issue for years, because retailers bring small sizes and leaves to question, what the big girls would wear.

Thank God for African mentality, where skinny is not the market deal. Yes, we have models that are skinny and do the runway strut but an African woman is proud to have her hips and her breasts.

When you go for fashion shows these days, you will discover that some designers have plus size models that also show case the style also passing the message that you can also wear it not only the skinny girls.

This also caused a lot of up roar in the last Miss Nigeria where we had Miss Imo contestant looking bigger than others. People started questioning why she was there in the first place because of her weight.

Not everyone is meant to be skinny, our bodies are beautiful and we are not talking about health here because not every skinny person is healthy – Madeline Jones

Be proud of your size, walk confidently and never let anyone put you down.
