Size 0 is the UK equivalent of a size 4, and constitutes a waist measurement of a 22 inches which is comparative to a 9 year old girl. The average size for a woman from the UK is 12-14 (30- 32 waist). Thats a staggering 8 difference. Imagine being so slim that walking down the catwalk and all the audience notice are the clothes, not the model said by a writer from one of the high street magazines. So thin that you bones start to crumble inside you, with your skin so pale making your ribs clearly visible.
Recently there has been a debate whether or not we should ban size zero models in the fashion industry. Size zero is the topic I intend to argue against. The first vision you get when the words Size zero is said you think of a person starving themselves to the bone making them look weak , making it hard for them to walk. Many people are against the idea of size zero, not just because its unhealthy, but because it looks unattractive. The models themselves may feel good about the look of their bodies but people not known them look at them just seen tightly pulled skin over bones, poor skin, limp hair and a lifeless personality.
There are so many reasons as to why size zero models are sought after in the fashion industry, mainly because there exist designers who believe that their clothes will appear to their best advantages on smaller frames said by an article from a radio station. People also want to be a size zero , as they believe it will make them look better, more healthier, to make other people jealous, to increase their self confidence, feel fresher and to make them feel happier.
These are the most common known facts listed on a poll on Google. I disagree why people think size zero is acceptable, it makes you have less energy and make you become more tired , said by Victoria Beckham. Also it ages: with out eating they become frail, no giving them the nutrients they need to grow, Young girls look up to and emulate female role models for their appearance and body figure in suggestion to look perfect just like their role model and to persuade the body at all costs to do so.
This is a bad influence on the younger generation starting from a young age with their bodies still developing. If they insist on strict dieting it can make them more petite than the others. According to doctors online is it estimated that 1. 1 million people in the UK suffer from eating disorders. The quotation said by the media advertising, fashion and cosmetic industries are all part of the propaganda promoting the myth that In order to have real value in our culture women ought to be constantly motivated towards the attainment of physical perfection.
I dont agree with this myth that its making it out to be that people who arent physically attractive and who do carry a bit of weight cant be a model. This is discrimination towards these people lowering their self esteem then often leading to depression. In my eyes every girl deserves a chance no matter what their weight, as long as their facial appearance is appealing to the media decided by the directors of magazines.
