    Too fat to be a model? The picture that caused a storm in the fashion world

    Lizzie Miller is considered too large to model plus-size clothes. Is the reaction that followed the publication of this picture going to change that?
    .....................
    Lizzie Miller, the 20-year-old model in question, agrees that it's astonishing that, at 5ft 11in and 12.5 stone she's considered a "plus size" model. "It's sad," she says. "In the industry anything over size six is considered a plus-size."

    Miller, who is around a US size 12-14 (that is, either average or slightly below average) lost about 60lb when she was 13 but today she is considered too large to model for plus-size lines Marina Rinaldi (she says, "they like girls who are an 8-10") or Elena Miro.

    She says that the overwhelming reaction to the tiny photograph, buried on page 194 of Glamour magazine "shows that the world is hungry to see pictures of normal women."

    It is not a flattering picture.
    Better to die on your feet than live on your knees.

    Very true! leaning forward with just a little tummy fat makes it look worse than it really is.

    So are we all Mr.Rock but she is a real life mature woman !

    Take a gaze into the mirror in the morn and observe your naked splendor and compare her beauty.

    I for one find her an most attractive mature woman and would be proud to be associated with her if only my wife would let me !

    She is still a prime woman .A little flap like that is most attractive in a mature woman .We all have these visions of some skinny Seventeen year old female virgin thin as a rail and fair of face more like a high school senior than a woman.

    But that's not a real woman to me.A real woman has some worldly experiences and has had a chance to make up her mind as to what she really likes in a man.

    A real woman will live with a man and make him a happy home.A real woman has strength and convictions and will neither lead or be totally be led and dominated by a man .She rules the home by gentleness and great wisdom knowing her mans weaknesses and guides him with her gentleness .But enough of this ,you all know just what I mean !
