Real women have CURVES

Please watch this video before reading this blog to understand my point of view. 

While I understand that high fashion prefers emaciated skinny women over curvy women I'm sickened by an anonymous beauty blogger who recently posted a blog online bashing Katy Upton for being "FAT". If your interested in reading this specific blog that has sparked some serious drama see it here Katy Upton is "Well-Marbled"
In the blog written, it states that Katy has "Huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, terrible body definition – she looks like a squishy brick. Is this what American women are “striving” for now? The lazy, lardy look? Have we really gotten so fat in this country that Kate is the best we can aim for? Sorry, but: eww!"
While everyone is allowed to have their own opinion on the matter I must say my own opinion is nothing but disgust. We wonder why women today outside of the modeling industry are not only anorexic but depressed as all hell. Look at the standards we are expected to live up to! Katy Upton's measurements are 36-25-34.  That's a normal sized women. It's about time we have women out there confidently modeling who look "NORMAL" for a change. If her thighs are considered huge and her body is considered "LAZY & LARDY" then what does that make the rest of us? I'm happy Sports Illustrated had her as their cover model. Anytime I see women bashing women's bodies and figures it really gets to me (obviously). We weren't all born to look the same or be shaped the same. We're supposed to be supporting each other, not insulting each other. While I feel like our country is starting to come around as to what's considered "beautiful", blogs posted like this just take us a step backwards. It's easy to judge someone when they have half there clothes off but hell, she's obviously doing something right if she's made it as a super model in our "1 size fits all" modeling industry. And I'm happy that we have a girl out there confident to show off her normal figure and be proud of it.
