    Awesome, even though some women are naturally slim, most of them starve themselves to meet measurements that are unrealistic.

      I totally disagree. Not all "slim" women starve themselves. Staying away from fast food, eat a healthy diet and get regular exercise will do wonders. The better body tone also results in fewer inches. The extra added value bonus is that most people can actually eat more and weigh less and are healthier as a result of diet/exercise. I am not "naturally" slim, but using this method I have a 2900 calorie per/day diet and still maintain my size 4.

    Although everyone is beautiful in their own skin, 14 is unhealthy and would b setting the same unhealthy standards as the overly skinny models, and14 is'nt real woman size I'm a 23 yr old curvey size 4 waist and a size 7 butt and when I was modeling I got turned down so much and they kept telling I should model for plus size stores smh real woman size is 6-14 in my opinion

    Whatever... I will be impressed with Vogue and Fashion Designers when they start using real women size models (14+) for couture shows. That will deserve praise!

      since when did real women become size 14+? Thats just an excuse to accept Americas never ending obesity problem. Average women probably is a 4-8?

      I am 5'2", weigh 132 and wear a 4/6. If I were a size 14 I would be considered medically obese. Being a real women does not necessarily have to include being fat. I am healthy and fit, I have curves, but I'm not skinny and I'm not fat.
