I admit that reading Cosmopolitan Magazine has been a guilty pleasure of mine for years, right alongside with Ben & Jerry’s delectable delight, Chubby Hubby. I admit that I’ve tried many of their sex positions and tips, sometimes resulting in a mind-blowing orgasm and sometimes in an excruciatingly painful pulled muscle.
Now, though, I would proudly admit even to my conservative father that I read Cosmo. Robyn Lawley, an Australian plus size model, graced the pages of Australian Cosmopolitan’s December issue in her very own swimsuit line, Bond-Eye.
Even though this seems to be a huge breakthrough for the strictly skinny Cosmopolitan, it brings up an interesting subject: since Robyn is only a size 12, which is not considered plus-size, is Cosmo really embracing the curvy girls?
Question of the day: Do you think that “real” women would be more or less inclined to buy clothes they see in ads if they saw a non-model wearing them? Why?
