It’s interesting that men are more critical about their bodies than women are. It seems like there’s always a feeling of competition, no matter what gender you are – who has the best biceps/pecs/abs? Who has the trimmest belly? Who is the strongest/fastest/fittest?
The pressure to look perfect constantly surrounds us – whether it’s through advertising (models are picked to look thin/lean/fit/etc), or other people. It’s great to see a gradual (albeit slow) increase in hiring models that don’t look dangerously thin, and even”plus-sized” models.
I bet Abercrombie will continue putting those muscular guys on their bags though… and also continue to not offer larger sizes for women… sigh.
