“We want our readers to know that they don’t need to change their appearance to ‘fit in’ or be truly happy. Most people only think they need to change because they’re constantly exposed to the message that they do – and shown images of impossibly skinny models that they’re told they “should” look like. Appearance needs to be rethought and placed firmly back where it belongs – in the entertainment section of your life, along with fashion and make-up. If you feel anxious about your looks instead of being relaxed, it’s a sure sign that you need to change your mind and not your body.”
– UK magazine editor, Sue Thomason explaining her magazine Just As Beautiful targeting only woman size 14 and up. They vow not to retouch any images and use real woman with real sizes.
Good for them!!!
