Have you heard the most recent uproar regarding curves?
Well, apparently, Lane Bryant has come out with a commercial that shows a little too much skin–at least according to ABC and Fox, who both initially refused to air it. (I believe Fox recently agreed to run the spot after an upcoming American Idol episode.)
Given that most Victoria Secret models seem to pop up everywhere in their underwear, I think it’s a bit hypocritical to start fussing about what curvy women look like in their underwear, don’t you agree?
In it, Renn gives a riveting, personal account of her experience in the modeling industry. Her courage and strength to take charge of her life, health, and career is an inspiring and positive read, which I highly enjoyed and most certainly recommend.
I do have to say, though I do not begrudge any woman her body type, I would personally like to see the media embrace curves more.
After all, it’s not a full representation of real life when popular imagery doesn’t reflect all the beauty in the world around us. We need the sensuality of curves just as much as the delicate lines of the ultra petite. Otherwise, we risk losing our depth and our perception will be forced into unreality–which, in the end, can only leave us “hungry” for something more satisfying.
