    wow, this is fantastic.
    And I actually think the Dove adverts are great, they show real women, beautiful women..I get sick of seeing stick insects who look like they’re on the brink of starvation in all these adverts on TV and in magazines for products that will apparently make you “beautiful” and “give you the figure you’ve always dreamed of”, its sickening, no wonder so many women are so insecure about them selves and go on crazy diets and wear a whole make up shop every day.

    I don’t understand why people always look at thin women so negatively. ‘They show real women, beautiful women’. Does this imply that just because I am a natural size 4 (or size 0 in America) that I am not ‘real’? My friend is a size 14 and she is always dieting to the point that she starves herself. I would love to have her curvy figure but no matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to put on weight.

    The message we should be spreading is that we should all try to be happier with our own bodies, not that it is beautiful to be curvy and ugly to be thin.
