Glamour's November Issue to Feature More Plus Models
Glamour Magazine recently caused a major boost to plus size positivity with one 3x3 image of plus size model Lizzie Miller nude, with her (gasp) tummy roll showing. It was a more genuine, real picture of a woman's body than is usually seen in magazines and it sure did cause an uproar. It was covered everywhere from The Today Show to Oprah Radio and lead to a general outpouring of support and enthusiasm from women & men around the country wanting to see MORE - more real women, more real bodies!

Glamour has always been more enclusionary of body sizes than many magazines. They routinely include plus size fashion options (although not normally in their editorials) and have featured some plus size models in the past. When the Lizzie Miller photo created all this media attention, they embraced the notion of taking it a step further to show that body positivity was something they really felt strongly about.

In November they will be running a whole story and pictorial featuring 7 nude plus size models.
