Curves Ahead in V Magazine

Check out these shots from V Magazine‘s forthcoming issue, entitled “The Size Issue” and featuring five plus-size models.

The issue, on newsstands January 14, features this spread with styling by Nicola Formichetti and shows the sexy side of the plus-size modeling world with shots of Candice Huffine, Marquita Pring, Michelle Olson, Tara Lynn and Kasia P.

Photographer Solve Sundsbo told V, “I loved the opportunity to show that you can be beautiful and sexy outside the narrow interpretations that normally define us.”

    The pictures would look a lot better if they dressed the women in clothes that fit properly. Skin tight is not a good look for someone who has rolls of fat around her middle, nor is exposing the midriff of an obviously overweight woman.

    Who wants to see another person’s fat? It seems like they are trying to make it OK to be obese, probably because that actually is the norm in the U.S. these days. Sad.

    FYI Cindy Crawford is a size 10 and I have never seen that woman look bad, and her bank account can testify that neither has anyone else. The last of the Supermodels were all a size 6-8. So to say you have to be a 6 or under to be attractive or a model is a little silly.

    NOBODY ASKED TO SEE PLUS SIZED MODELS IN MAGAZINES!!

    PEOPLE WANT TO SEE A VARIATION OF WOMEN FROM THIN GIRLS, TO AVERAGE GIRLS, TO PETITE GIRLS TO LARGER GIRLS.

    THEY GO FROM ONE ANOREXIC EXTREME TO ONE OVERWEIGHT EXTREME WHICH IS RIDICULOUS.

    AND THE REASON PEOPLE HAVE A NARROW VIEW IS BECAUSE MAGAZINES JUST LIKE V-MAG, PROMOTE STARVING GIRLS AND MAKE FUN OF OVERWEIGHT GIRLS IN PHOTOS LIKE THIS.

    @Ha!: Yes, sizes across the board have changed. The sizes towards that top have changed quite a bit, with less variation at the bottom.
    .
    I can recall when this started to happen in most stores in the mid-90s. I could not believe that my normal number didn’t even come close to fitting. I still have clothes packed away that I wore at various stages of my life that still fit, and their numbers are size 8 (jeans I wore in high-school, shorts from my 20s, etc.). My size has not changed – manufacturing has. Manufacturers are pacifying and feeding the public’s need to maintain a facade that North Americans (Americans in particular) are not getting fat.
    .
    It’s all about the “bottom line” – their earning potential and the publics expanding a**.

    Women like NICE men! Says:

    I think they look great, I would rather see some fat rolls than scary bones popping out.

    love the outfits on all of them; like I said, you can put the same thing on a skinny woman and if scary bones are popping out that is just as distasteful to some as seeing rolls of fat popping out is to others. To each his own.

    Not every woman who is overweight has cellulite. Some very thin women have cellulite. I think these girls look beautiful, and “to each his own”. European woman are definitely thinner, but they walk most everywhere they go AND they don’t eat the processed, junky crap food that most Americans do.
    And for anyone posting here who is a male, pi$$ off with your nasty comments.

    Not everyone can be a size 2 because we have different bone structure and cellulite have nothing to do with weight is about genes.

    If magazines have starting to enjoy normal and plus-size womens why we can’t??

    anna Says:

    Close to 60% of the American adult population is overweight, and you people are concerned about thin models being a negative influence???Maybe seeing a gorgeous size 2 woman will make you get off your asses and on the treadmill. I just find this ridiculoussss!

    how surprising…media is trying to enforce that ‘fat is the new thin’ -apparently healthy (regardless of weight) isn’t!

    @Chloe:

    Yes Chloe you’re absolutely right. I’m from Russia and the women here are gorgeous and skinny not like these fat slobs with their roles of fat. These “models” look disgusting. If the women in my country looked like this they would be embarressed to show their face outside. But most Americans are fatter than these two anyways so to them this is probably normal to them.

    I don’t believe size 6 is fat, but these women are not average size and I don’t believe in making excuses for people who are obese. They are overweight. Their faces are pretty, but the poses and the clothing they selected for them make them look flabby and unattractive. I think these photos will have the opposite affect of what they intended to do.

    They should lose weight for their own health, but they shouldn’t try to look like Kate Moss. Kate isn’t as pretty as they are and she doesn’t have a good body-just the typical heroin chic body which is not attractive.

    I agree that this may not be the best way to go…fashion does not have to portray one extreme to the other…not that these girls are “obese” by any means. But the people that think the normal fashion models are acceptable sicken me a bit. Each day, they look more and more like death..and there are those that do die…and those that die try to achieve those standards. I know obesity is a big problem especially in North America but it certainly doesn’t help to see emaciated girls promoted everywhere…I don’t know which is the best way to go…if we could stop being so obsessed with standards and what mold be are supposed to fit into that would be nice but that obviously won’t happen. I think some people talking about European culture need to get off their high horses…every country deals with body and health issues and the US might be in a more diar state but there is no need to be demeening. Speaking as a Canadian girl who has lived with an eating disorder for eleven years now, I struggle with these issues daily. I am frightened by the situation and can only hope for progress in the future…I think some people just really need to be careful what they say however

    They are really pretty—– but maybe they need to wear different clothes….. Stacy and Clinton should have dressed them!

    Aye where is Whitney who won ANTM.
    She’s a beautiful plus size girl, either way though they’re stunning pictures & it’s great to see normal sized people in magazines like this.

    @Chloe:

    That is ridiculous!
    The average weight in European Cities is not a size 6, the average body type is not gamine for European women.
    for the most part it tends to be pear to hour glass, especially in westeren european countries.
    I have no problem with people prefering thin women, but dont make such an absurd assumption about an entire continant when you probably mean steriotypically Parisian.

    Pffffffttttt... Says:

    @CanadaGirl:

    Wh*rebag, The US is the number 2 fattest country in the world and the UK is the number 4 fattest country in the world. I’m a size 14 and was down to a 6 well over 2 years ago. I weight trained for years. When I was a size 6 I still felt fat even while my friends and family were telling me to stop because I was overdoing it. Even now at a size 14 my brother calls me “muscles” because one can still the definition in my arms. At a size 14 I can fit into medium sized Adidas workout pants. Give it a rest, b*tch.
