Meet Lizzi Miller, a 20 year old model who posed for Glamour Magazine – but wait, Lizzie isn’t your typical 5’10”, 115 lbs. model. In fact, she’s 5’11”, 180 pounds and a US size 12 / 14, her tummy isn’t perfectly flat and she looks… normal. Even more, Lizzie posed for the magazine in her underwear and her picture was part of an article about boosting your body confidence. The result? Lizzie got an overwhelming support from readers, who loved the picture of a happy, smiling, beautiful woman who didn’t suck in her tummy, didn’t get digital liposuctions in Photoshop, who had realistic curves, a bit of tummy and, above all, who seemed comfortable in her own skin.
Lizzie and Glamour’s editor are all over the news now – make sure you check the video from the Today Show below! And here’s what Huffington Post says:
A single photo used for an article on self confidence in September’s issue of Glamour magazine has caused a buzz in the modeling world.
After she was captured smiling and showing a bit of a tummy, the Glamour website was immediately overrun with positive comments, inspiring editor-in-chief Cindi Leive to reconsider the models shown in the magazine’s pages.
Here’s what Lizzie says about her figure:
“When I was young I really struggled with my body and how it looked because I didn’t understand why my friends were so effortlessly skinny,” Lizzi told me. “As I got older I realized that everyone’s body is different and not everyone is skinny naturally–me included! I learned to love my body for how it is, every curve of it. I used to be so self-conscious in a bikini because my stomach wasn’t perfectly defined. But everyone has different body shapes!
