    Models have died in their efforts to stay "perfect." Agents tell girls they're "too fat" when they're a size 2. It leads to unhealthy body images for every woman and girl looking at the ads. Why in the world shouldn't the model industry be regulated?

    I wish I was that brave. Its so great that Lizzie is setting a good example. Way to go. I have four kids and I have put on a little weight so its sometimes hard for me to put myself out there because you always see such skinny girls modeling. Keep it up.

    I absolutely love that belly of hers. I would love to see more average sized women as models.

    its not so much an issue of weight... everyones body is built differently... it is more an issue of health... as long as the models are healthy who care... some women (like my aunt) are a size 2 and has been her whole life... it wouldnt be right to say your too small... but what the fasion industry considers average and what really is average are two totally different things

    In the modeling world, being a size six can have you branded as overweight. That's a ridiculous standard to hold young girls to.

    god. and people say I'M skinny! I'd bet an agent would find something stupid to turn me down too. Shouldn't they model what MOST people can fit in? that would sell more and make people feel like they don't have to be Uber-skinny where they start dying..

    I think there should be more "plus" sized models used (although they really are hardly plus sized). People are put under enough pressure today to lose weight without the need for even more horribly skinny models. They even have adverts where a child is saying "I might die of heart disease if I eat this". It's good for kids to be healthy, but where's the line drawn? More and more girls AND boys have low self-esteem and obsess over being thin.

    its the modles decision to lose/gain weight and you cant really put a limit of what people will do if they feel they dont look good. i believe that some modles have weight problems but there are other ways to help them

    I believe they should (based on height and frame) because these poor girls who fall under the pressure of being much too skinny are slowly killing themselves. I would much rather see a healthy, slim, curvy, or athletic girl on the runway and in ads than someone who is so absolutely skinny they are sending a terrible message to young ladies.

    if you dont want to look at a fat model then dont. i think if she wants to take nude pics thats fine, its her choice.

    I don't know, I see enough "Plus sized" women in my day to day life, if I'm looking at a magazine for models, the last thing I want to see is more fat chicks. But I'm shallow like that. It's not so bad if they're big but their skin looks smooth, but when you have ripples in your skin, it's just, "Ewwwwww"

    Just like I ws looking at a catalog this morning, and under some of the items it says "We offer goddess sizes at no extra cost". Guess they don't want to offend the fat chicks.

    Reminds me of that old joke, "How do you find the snatch on a fat chick? You flip through the folds until you smell shit, then go back one."

    So yeah, I'm in favor of weight limits.

    because people die from anorexia. While everyone's out trying to cure cancer and create cold fusion, there's a huge epidemic in people, especially girls. Girls try to be perfect, and they think models are perfect. Unfortunately, this "perfection" comes from starving yourself and creating an unhealthy lifestyle.

    Lizzie MIller is doing something brave and much needed by showing everyone it's okay to be plus size.

    I guess everyone see beauty differently.I think larger women are much more attractive than anorexic ones..If one looks at that art work of the early painters they often painted larger women.We as a society are sending the wrong message to young women that must all look like Barbie

    is fine and all, but srsly if a magazine can convince u that ur ugly, its not gonna do much good

    but this anorexia thing, yeah its monstrous to see it happen to someone you know, but th most common eating disorder BY FAR in america is overeating. instead of a model with a gut, they shud hav had a woman of ideal weight for her height and a FIT physique. if its about health, show them a healthy woman

    The only problem with this is that she is a size 12/14...that's not really plus size just double digits. Just normal for most women. But it's nice to see a normal sized woman out there.

    I watched that interview the other day, they said she is only a size 12-14,... Sorry but not in any world I know about.

    I wear a 12-14 and I don't look anything like her, she has to be an 18-22,...

    There is nothing attractive about any model who looks like a stick insect. They aren't healthy emotionally or physically. What makes me angry the most is that Lizzie Miller has a normal female body she is not plus size.

    SHE'S a plus size model? Damn now I feel bad about myself :(
    Also, the modeling industry should definitely have limits on it... there seems to be no stopping this imagine of super thin as being the best...so its time that someone stepped in and stopped this trend.

    is a good role model for children saying that you don't need to be skinny to be beautiful. And I think that there is such a thing as being too skinny

    Its time for the fashion world to realize there are more women like lizzie that the are like the super models. It also sets a good image for the younger girls to say you can be sexy not matter what your size is.

    is not "plus" size at all.
    i'm not sure if "plus size" is an official measurement, but i would consider her to be too small for my definition of "plus" size.

    i think what she did was pretty awesome, but i also think that they should get some slightly larger models as well because not all women have a wonderfully curvaceous body like Lizzie Miller.
    not so large as to be unhealthily overweight, though. because that would teach people that unhealthy is good... which it most definitely isn't.

    Women are beautiful in all sizes. I think all models should have regular health checks like all normal citizens, but other than that, no. If someone has a severe problem with their image, such as anorexia, then they shouldn't be in modelling, skinny or otherwise. It's like letting a paedophile work with children,
