A popular discussion topic today is the photo that appears on page 194 of this month’s issue of Glamour magazine. The photo shows 20-year-old model Lizzi Miller sitting in her underwear with a smile on her face and a “belly that looks…wait for it…normal “. The magazine has been overrun with letters from readers applauding the magazine’s audacity to showcase a normal, size 12-14 woman. A woman that our society considers plus-size by her measurements, but normal by the average female waistline. The response from the editor is a great read. You can view it here.
The photo made me smile and feel even more confident in my post-baby body. Ground breaking indeed. I am sure a lot of women across the country had breakthroughs looking at this photo as well.
