It's Time to Readjust the Requirements to Become a Model
While looking superthin is being phased out, there are still women being told they're "too fat" to model and height requirements — five feet, seven inches is considered short! — haven't budged at all. You could argue that models should look a certain way in order to display the clothing, but you can also argue that, hey, we all wear clothes. Shouldn't we see pieces displayed the way they'll actually be worn? Plus, if women with different body types were represented on retailer websites, it would probably be a lot easier for shoppers to imagine how clothing would look them, rather than making an educated guess about sizing and overall fit.
