Glamorizing the Ultra-Thin

This article was recently posted on Lingerie Diva's website about the French Parliament passing a bill to "glamorize the ultra-thin."

The crack down would include fines of up to $71,000 and three-year prison sentences for offenders who encourage 'extreme thinness.' In the next few weeks this bill will go to the Senate.

This bill follows the 2006 anorexia-linked death of Brazilian model Ana Carolina Reston, which prompted efforts throughout the fashion industry to address the health problems of ultra-thin models..."

Thank you to Lingerie Diva with posting this article. Eve's Apples couldn't agree with you more. As long as the media continues to promote unhealthy and sickly images of women as the ideal beauty and photo shop normal sized women down to waifs, impressionable girls and women will continue sacrificing their health and well-being to achieve this unrealistic image.

Celebrating Your Inner Eve is all about embracing who you are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Until we can love and accept ourselves as we are no one else will either.

Wow! I sound really intesne above, I suppose it's because this is a serious issue that can lead to death. I think Lingerie Diva did a great job pulling together a fabulous and timely post! I could agree with her post more! ;)
