I don't think you're ready for this jelly...

Recently I was reading in a magazine and I saw that curves were back in…. Excuse me, when where they out? Last time I checked there were an abundance of curvy girls roaming around. Beyonce, Salma Hayek Pinault, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and many other curvy girls are making the rounds in Hollywood and showing off bodies, making a statement saying being too thin is never in. I thought this was just a fluke, seeing as how I was reading through one of those fashion magazines where every model looks like a lollypop but then a commercial caught my attention. Have you seen that Old Navy commercial with the “Booty Reader?”
Old Navy Booty Reader
Yes exactly… when will people realize that curves, booties, and boobs will always be in? There will always be a demand in the fashion world for girls who are rail thin to show off the clothes, but let’s take a look at the people who actually buy the clothes. We as consumers are not like the models that show off the clothes. The fashion world obsession with the super thin models is one of the reasons why we have girls with low self esteem and eating disorders. Come on people…lets not promote super thin, let’s promote healthy. There will always be women with curves and we will never be out of style so let’s celebrate what you have.
