In the past couple weeks, there have been a few news stories about women and their size. For instance, a CBS blogger ridiculed an OKC cheerleader for being "chubby". I, in no way, see any sign of this woman being chubby or overweight; rather, she's athletic and absolutely gorgeous. But, in positive news, H&M used a plus size model for their swimsuit campaign. Jennie Runk is a size 12, and while they received ridicule for not going with a "standard" size 0 or 2, I think that they are raising the bar in the best way possible. Jennie represents what the majority of us look like, and shows that you don't have to be a size 2 to look beautiful and confident in a swimsuit.
