|I miss seeing Megan in the magazine, but I do support it, for the most part. It's still SO important to applaud Figure for using true plus-size models, and I hope the inclusion of smaller girls does NOT mean that the magazine will start pushing out the fuller-figured ones. Mode made that mistake.|
The cover has its flaws, but it still stands out on a news stand, compared to anything else you see there. I like it much better than the two Fall covers from last year, if not as much as the Spring or Summer covers.
And the weeding out of diet ads it a tremendous step forward, even though they shouldn't have been in the magazine in the first place.
The images in Figure all indicate that it's okay, possibly even wonderful, to be curvaceous. I only wish the content of the magazine was as consistently positive. Hopefully someday, it will be.
