why don't magazines post pictures of average size women on their covers?
And why don't clothing designers design clothes for women that aren't a size two or four or even 10?
The first reason that comes to mind is appeal. As unfortunate as it may be, posting pictures of average size women on covers of their magazines, doesn't increase the draw factor, doesn't advertise the products inside and doesn't increase the likelihood of men picking up said magazine.
Often the women on the front cover wear the clothing advertised onside the magazine and a woman who is thin makes the best impression wearing those clothes. There are a few magazines out there who advertise for the average-sized or plus-sized women; but even their covers, on occasion, feature the thinner woman on the cover. Not fair, but it is what it is.
As far ass why don't the designers design clothes for other sizes; the laziness factor comes to mind. A size 1x is not simply BIGGER than a sz 10. There's a proportion difference that needs to be taken into consideration, especially when making slacks or shorts.
Great question! Nor do they include pictures of many clothes any of us normal and or average women would wear. I feel they do it because they;
1) Don't listen to the people and what we want thus continue on their carved out path. Goes to show us how creative they really are.
2) They have more money than sense!
But the good news is there are some mags that are moving past that....
NOTE: We are our own worse critics. When you look in the mirror odds are your far to harsh on yourself and don't see you for your true beauty. Most of the women I know don't realize that they are smaller in appearance than they see through their eyes.
Bottom line love yourself for all the wonderful things you are and be glad your greatest ambition is to be wafe thin and on some silly mag cover....Remember the digital magic they do with them...
Much Love and Success,

Why is so little glamor advice available to women over 40?Why is it that so many websites, magazines and references offer make up advise only a 20 year old can wear. Those of us in our middle years need the info more than the clear skinned youth. Is it age discrimination?

Why do women dress up in skimpy / revealing clothes?Women seem to enjoy dressing up in clothes that reveal significant amounts of their bodies, leaving very little to imagination. Why is this? could there be a scientific reason for it? Doesn't it promote the whole idea of being objectified?
