Size Rant

Comedian Amy Schumer slammed Glamour magazine for including her in their “plus size” bonus issue sponsored by Lane Bryant, pointing out that plus size is considered size 16 in America, and she goes between a size 6 and an 8. When did a size 8 become plus size?!!!!

Schumer pointed out that young girls are going to see her body type and think that’s plus sized.  Agreed. Shame on Glamour.


  1. I honestly don't buy that she's a size 6 or 8 at ALL but honestly it doesn't matter. This whole "plus size" thing grosses me out so much. Just let people be themselves! Ugh, society!

  2. Hi E: Thanks for writing. I have to admit that it also went thru my head that she doesn't look like a size 6, and i started thinking maybe she's a size 8 in dresses or designer clothes or the camera adds 10 pounds, but then, like you, I stopped myself and thought - who cares about dress size?! But, I do think Amy Schumer has the body of an average, not plus-size, woman. It sends a terrible message to label her large. What's normal then - a size 0?
