A lament from a size 0 on the ever changing body ideal
This reminds me of when I was shopping with my mom at JC Penney, and we passed by a plus size mannequin. She says “Look it’s you!” thinking it would make me feel bad about my weight. I turned to look at the mannequin and smiled and said “Damn, then I’m a hottie!” (My mom wasn’t happy lol) Anyway,
yes to more plus size mannequins!
you are truly clueless…
I really hope this is a rumor

The collections, called Queen, are set to launch this August and priced from under $100 up to $300. The offerings will come in a range of sizes; that’s not to say the line is exclusively for plus-size women, a term Latifah abhors:
“It is a word we need to bury at this point,” she said. “It’s for all sizes. Even just taking into account the various body shapes and body types of women as they range through those sizes, and making sure that everything is sized properly for them, has been exciting.”
