Are perceptions of what's fit influenced more by supermodels/stars or the US's overweight culture?


Supermodels have a reputation for skewing girls' perceptions of what looks right. However, a large percentage of the U.S. population is overweight, which means that people are more likely to see examples of obesity than anorexia in daily life. Which plays a bigger role in what looks "normal"? Or, are our perceptions being skewed in both directions? (Are people's perceptions of what's fit influenced more by stick-thin supermodels/stars or by the overweight culture of the U.S.?)
