Warning: Curves Ahead

We're happy to announce that curves are finally back...and it's about time!

After years and years of anorexic models gracing the editorial pages of magazines, it seems that editors are finally realising that not
everyone respects and admires the stick thin, perfectly PhotoShopped {unrealistic} body type they've been spoon-feeding us.

Australian Harper's Bazaar features 'plus-sized' model Crystal Renn posing in sexy bustiers, strappy dresses, and sheer lingerie. The BEST part? Crystal used to be anorexic {!} and is living proof that being comfortable in your own skin is always more attractive than being PhotoShopped to perfection.

Yeah! Real womyn have curves : ) I love this post; thanks for sharing. I knew fleshy bods were making a come-back. Especially with the huge pin-up movement back in action. I'm sure females are getting sick of the super'thin' standards we're used to seeing because one can only get so thin, and then what? Eating disorder? Death?

Real women come in all shapes and sizes, actually.

And it's nice to see a small bit of diversity in the media.

hate to break to everyone, as lovely as the talented Ms. Crystal Renn is, anybody who thinks she's not photoshopped within an inch of her life, just like Kate Moss, is riding the happytrain to cluelessville.

doesn't mean it hasn't been awesome to see her rising success.

and second to the ""real" women are all sorts of shapes and sizes"

Everyone is photoshopped in some way these days, so I'm glad that you kept using the phrase 'photoshopped to PERFECTION'.

They obviously left her curves IN and we women love that.
