I love that magazines are starting to feature a variety of body shapes and sizes.  I find that Glamour has been one of the best at doing this, and plus-size model Crystal Renn has been a regular in the magazine.

Hungry by Crystal Renn

I recently read Renn’s memoir, Hungry, about her struggle with an eating disorder and later success as one of the top plus-size models in the industry today.  An interesting and worthwhile read if you want to check it out!

Renn has also appeared in Glamour’s November 2009 beautiful bodies spread, alongside six other plus-size models who are breaking ground to redefine what a beautiful body looks like. It was a blog post that prompted Glamour’s body image revolution.
