Which is which?

on July 18, 2012

I encountered this article on yahoo.com today regarding Kate Upton, a supermodel. http://ph.omg.yahoo.com/photos/the-woes-of-a-curvaceous-super-model-slideshow/ But unlike other supermodel, she is not skinny, in fact she is a lot different from the usual skinny models we see on tv. She became confidential as on blogger said that Kate Upton  has “huge thighs, NO waist, big fat floppy boobs, and terrible body definition.”

this is Kate UptonIt got me thinking, what is really your definition of fat? Personally there are people who call me fat, there are also come who would comment that i am at the right size for my height and body index. So which is which? When does one draw the line to being fat and draw the line to being thin?

When do you call someone fat?

When do you call someone thin?

See, i am fond of watching America’s Next Top Model and usually the models i see there are skinny.. way skinny for me, they are like skin and bones but i like the fact that Tyra would still emphasize to eat right.  But then not everyone views things that way right? For them models should be THAT, skin and bones. Yet plus size models are already emerging, yes they call these ladies plus size models… maybe Kate Upton is included to that list.

I think that her body is “healthy” she is not fat and she is not thin, i mean if that blogger referred to her as FAT i wonder what that blogger thinks of Adele? (No offense intended for Adele as i love her!) but really, is this how some people think already? That models should just be those skinny type people?

Maybe it is about time to correct things, maybe it is about time we see these kinds of model, healthy looking models not the anorexic kinds that will walk in the run way. Kate looks healthy for crying out loud, she looks like someone who eats normally, someone who do not starve herself and someone who can eat a bar of chocolate!  Maybe it is about time the media will recognize this too, so that our teens, kids can see that someone like her with that kind of body type can model and is the right kind of body to have.

really. Because as a parent, i worry sometimes that my kids will watch these run way shows and see this skinny models and end up wanting to be like them and what if their body type is not the same as those models? what if my daughter will be on the heavier side like Kate? I do not want them to starve themselves.

I am just so glad that Kate Upton owns up her body, she flaunts it, the blogger says she flaunts it in a way that looks so pornographic, i wonder how she defines pornographic? Glad that someone like Kate is proud of her body and has no problem like starving. Plus it is nice to see someone who can flaunt a bikini that is not size zero! Way to go Kate!

just sayin… 😛

  1. I don’t know who Kate Upton is, but I can only assume you posted the wrong photos. This person is certainly not the fat-thighed-and-boobed no waisted person that’s described above.

    People are insane, aren’t they?
