What a crappy pic of her...would have been nice to have better one.  Geeeeez, just this week I was tickled to death when I was able to pull out a size 14P from my closet.  Another few pounds and I was gonna make into those 12P that are still hanging on the hanger.  I also still have (and am removing) a couple pieces of 18W and 16P.  So, as you can see, my closet has always been an up and down (I might wear this one day) kind of thing.  No matter what they say about size 12 it beats where I've been before (as high as size 20 and 22).  Depressing.

It is retailers like this that have children's heads all messed up.Anorexia and Bulimia are a result of these kind of companies.When you have a model that is 5'11 or 6 ft that doesn't represent most women in America.Let alone when these same models weigh in at 110-115.I can't see how that is considered healthy?Huh This is really sad.I say everyone of us are unique individuals not a demographic Smiley And size 12 is  not plus size!!!

I'm 5'11, just a hair shy of 6 foot and if I weighed 115 pounds I would be a walking skeleton! The media has everything so screwed up, I'm glad I don't have a daughter. It must be tough growing up now with photoshop and too thin is in. Poor girls.  Lips sealed

The media culture that brought you the "healthy" whole grain, all natural, organic crap for weight loss is the same one that brought you this. Angry

Is it any wonder we have a nation full of people obsessed with food and their weight?

Yeah, but the sad thing is that she's not super-model-tall -- she's only 5'7". I'm just one inch taller.

I thought at one point in time, 18's were considered skinny? Then again, what era was that? I'm 18 petite! I feel great no matter what THEY say!
