About body image and weight

Media

Magazines and TV play a big role in how body image is seen, most magazines air brush their models and edit almost everything about the photos. A lot of TV shows and movies will only accept actors that are seen as beautiful and thin and won’t accept anything else. The average dress size of a model is 8 even though the average size of other women is 12.

I think that bigger women are becoming more accepted in today’s society even though models are still much thinner than the average woman. More fast food shops are opening and people don’t have as much time to cook so more and more woman are gaining weight and it is becoming common.
