A Real Woman

Crystal Renn is one of the most well known "plus-sized" models in the fashion industry, thanks to her new book, titled "Hungry", which tells the story of her as a young model and her struggles and ultimate embrace of her body. Hungry hit bookstores September 8, 2009.
After being told (by an agent) to loss 9 inches off of her hips (at 14 years old), she suffered an eating disorder; hitting 95 lbs at 5'9 and 1/2. Crystal decided that's wasn't for her and did not only gain back her weight but her confidence as well. She's made a name for herself in the fashion industry which, hasn't been easy as a plus-sized model, but she's doing it well. 

It's so refreshing to see a beautiful girl, who looks normal.


Her book.


Crystal, before.

I've always been a fan of plus-size models! There's a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.
