"Being healthy is something that's very important to me, especially because people like to stereotype that being plus size is not healthy! I’m healthier then some of my younger/skinnier friends!"
Realistically the government should be leading by example. Who did we have sponsoring the Olympics? McDonalds, Cadburys and Coca Cola! Oops. Yes as usual it all comes down to money.
If you go with a straight-size model you're hit with suggestions she isn't a 'real woman' (utter nonsense) and if you dare to use a plus-size model, then she isn't quite 'plus size enough' or deemed not 'real plus size'.
I wanted a magazine that "happened" to feature plus size fashion rather than obsessing about size on every page. Society scrutinizes that enough for us, without making a whole magazine about it.
