'Women's Health' Magazine Will No Longer Use Phrases 'Bikini Body' & 'Drop Two Sizes' on its Covers
Women’s Health magazine is making a big change for the better.
The glossy has vowed to cut certain words from future covers in hopes of promoting more positive body image.
“You told us you don’t love the words shrink and diet, and we’re happy to say we kicked those to the cover curb ourselves over the past year,” editor-in-chief, Amy Keller Laird, wrote in a letter. “But we’re still using two other phrases — ‘Bikini Body’ and ‘Drop Two Sizes’ — that you want retired.”
She continued, “Since our goal is always to pump you up, and never to make you feel bad, here’s our pledge: They’re gone. They’ll no longer appear on Women’s Health covers. (Whew, that felt good!).”
