I was looking through mail order catalogue Ellos and as usual found the ideals portrayed tiresome. All of the models were of course skinny but what I found really upsetting was the plus size models. Because there’s nothing plus about them! If you look at the average woman the plus size models are normal sizes and the regular models minus sized. There’s of course nothing wrong with being skinny. It’s just rather tiresome that the beauty ideals tells us being skinny is pretty much the only option.
What’s plus size about this model?
Or this one?
Well of course they’re plus size compared to these “regular” models.
Because this is what the average woman looks like? Or not…
