In our What is Beauty class today, we discussed average size, plus size and real size. We read an article about a model in Glamour who got a lot of extra attention for not being the usual super thin model. We also watched a clip where models who have “out grown” the typical model look to become real sized models. Real size, that’s what we are.
We then drew ourselves a we imagine ourselves. When we finished we got to compare our ideas on what we look like with what we actually look like. Some of us thought we were thinner or bigger than we actually are, or thought our features were more “troublesome” than others might have thought. At the end, we decided that yes, beauty IS in the eye of the beholder.
What is plus size?
It is considered “plus size” and why do they call it that?
It should be called “normal size” because everyone isn’t less than a size six. Seen the Victoria’s Secret models? They’re scary skinny. I don’t find it attractive at all. I don’t understand why men have to like that and thus, why women think they need to be skinny. Women should just be regular size and eat whatever they want. I know girls who have pictures as “thinspirations” and makes them feel bad because they think they need to be that size. They don’t need to be that size, they’re beautiful just the way you are. I don’t understand why they never see it and I keep having to remind them. Just because you have a stomach, it doesn’t matter.
Today in What is Beauty we watched a part of the Ellen Show talking about plus size model. I was shocked that the model industry and the media in general view plus size as size 6 and above, which was shocking to me because most normal people in the world are size six and above. It is not fair for the women!!!!! what is plus size?!! plus size is normal size!! it is regular size! I remember my friend telling me that when she go to normal clothes stores her size was a 0 but when she go to a designer store she is a size 7!! what is the point of this? what are you trying to say about women. That women have to starve themselves to fit into some clothes and for others to call you skinny?!!! Noooo this is unacceptable!!! this is not right! The modeling industry is just so messed up!! Even though there is improvement in the world today, many modeling company start to use “plus size” models. It is because of these ideas that makes women feel horrible about themselves when they are actually normal, they are in reality pretty.
The average model size cuts off at a size 6. This is scary to me, because when I saw a woman with a little bit of fat, I thought she would still be a regular model. However she was considered to be a plus size model. I don’t like how designers would design clothes that are made for extremely unhealthy woman, that makes models want to starve themselves to be able to fit into a dress that determines their career’s future. I think there should be designers that designs clothes for healthy women, for both big and small. There should be more diversity when it comes to weight in the fashion industry.
Today in What is Beauty?
What I don’t like about the fashion industry is that they make clothes size small. With the, the woman and girls see these and would make them feel bad about themselves. They make themselves say may horrible things too. So I think that the media should stop what they are doing because what they are doing is making the woman and girls sick. Beauty is what you are inside and what you are inside.
I think that there is no such thing as a normal size because every one is born in a different size. some may be thin or big when they are young, but their matabolism changes. so nobody should really say what a real normal size is, but every one has their own opinion!! i do think that any other person other than a model has a 00 size except for little kids.
