Glamour model Lizzie Miller shocks readers by not being airbrushed


Glamour readers are fangirling like crazy over “plus size” model Lizzi Miller.

Miller turned heads in the latest issue because of the simple fact that she resembles most readers of the fashion mag. Miller, 20, is a size 12-14 and not even technically “plus sized,” but her curvy shape is still alien to the airbrushed pages even of slightly progressive Glamour magazine.

Grateful readers flooded Glamour with emails, prompting a blog post about “the woman on p. 194″:

The emails were filled with such joy–joy at seeing a woman’s body with all the curves and quirks and rolls found in nature. (Raising a question: With all the six-packs out there, do you even know what a normal belly looks like anymore–other than the one you see in the mirror?)

And of the attention, Lizzi is grateful, too. She says:

“When I read them I got teary-eyed!” she says. “I’ve been that girl, flipping through magazines trying to find just one person who looked a little bit like me. And when I didn’t find it I would start to think there’s something wrong with the way that I looked. When J. Lo and Beyoncé came out and were making curves sexy, I started to accept myself more. It’s funny, but just seeing them look and feel sexy enabled me to do the same.”

So what do you think? Does Lizzi Miller look fantastic or is this lowering standards for stick thinness industrywide?

    I agree. And btw- she is still better than average!! She has a gorgeous face and her body is still great. She probably had a kid, and without surgery this is what stays behind. she is a healthy, normal size. Humans are supposed to have some reserve of fat. Btw- your mom has a roll too that was totally your fault (: Humans aren’t perfect sweet heart, get over it. And I hate pretty boys too. I’d rather a well-honed mind rather than a well-toned stomach.

    It’s about time,, So sick of those skinny little models. I’m not into big women but a women with some meat on her bones that doesn’t look sickly is more attractive to me.

    How nice to see a belly and stretchmarks! Which most women have! And this girl is still gorgeous!

    How lovely to see a gorgeous normal body! – and she's size 12-14, probably less than average, but correctly proportioned! Just a shame it stands out so much because it's so rare in these magazines! Thank you Lizzie Miller and the photographic team involved!
