Does ‘Skinny’ Still Sell Clothes And Magazines [POLL]

Curvy is in

I’ll step up and own it. I’m what I like to call a curvy girl, and for so long I have looked at magazine covers and advertisements featuring ultra skinny girls and thought “I will never look like that.” Well, Hallelujah! My curves may be back in style. Details after the jump.

According to booking agents and magazine editors, skinny is out and curves are in. Jennifer Lopez, Beyonce, and Kim Kardashian are setting a new standard for the ‘perfect’ body type. Magazine editors and stylists say that this isĀ  a direct response from their female audience as well. They want to see a more realistic body image. Since most fashion models are still stick skinny, Photshopping and airbrushing is being done to alter their shapes into a more ‘bootyliscious’ image. “I have to airbrush clients to make them appear bigger and more womanly before I submit photographs.” a talent manager told Fox News. “Skinny doesn’t sell.”

Of course, all of this is subject to change at the drop of a hat! It would be nice if just being happy and healthy would be enough for women everywhere. I say own your curves and enjoy a cheeseburger!
