The Shape Issue

The April issue of Vogue is on newsstands now. It has Lebron James and Gisele Bundchen on the cover. The Shape Issues a yearly nod to the non-twigs and normally the only one I actually purchase. I'm going to have stop doing that-- every year it just pisses me off. Some of the articles pimped on the cover include, The Perfect Fit, Dressing for Every Shape from Size 0 to 16 and You Are (Not) What You Eat: Debunking Diet Myths.

So I flipped to the section where they dress every size. Actually they are dressing every shape, but that doesn't stop them from putting the numbers on the cover. Is the 16 a nod to the larger girls to help sell more magazines? I think so. Shapes include, 1. Tall 2. Pregnant 3. Thin 4. Curvy 5. Short. Pregnant is a size huh? And the dress listed under Curvy-- only goes up to a size 12. Hmmpf.

Click the link to a read a great summary of the issue by the fashionistas over at New York magazine. Sums it up perfectly.
