this is an inappropriate forum for this.

Don't advertise here, please.

Well blatant advertsing no, but people do post some interesting ideas that are products. Body for Life comes to mind-- there are a lot a people who like it on the PEERtrainer board. I had no idea it existed, and I am more inclined to pay attention to it now.

I'd much rather hear about a product that someone uses and likes, as opposed to being marketed to via advertsing.

Another thing is that products and advertising are not necessarily a bad thing.

Size 12 is plus size?

Since when did the average clothing sizes for American women become "plus sized"?

I didnt take it as an advertisement

I took it as information.

Now, had the poster been trying to entice people to employ clients...

We all know that regular clothes models are about a size zero, or less, which isn't a real size. So why would plus-sized models actually be big enough to wear plus-sized clothes?

I think it's inspiring that a normal (average) sized woman can be a model too, even if it isn't for the new Versace fall line, or whatever... Anyone notice that plus-sized models actually seem to wear clothes that a human being might actually own? Way cooler!

Though, being 5'1" myself, I'll never be any kind of model, so maybe that's why Ithink it's so cool!

I don't mind hearing about products that peertrainer people use -- that's great and gives me good ideas, and it's organic -- it comes from the peertrainer members. But unless someone went to the casting call, had a good experience and is recommending it to everyone, I take the post as an ad put there by the company. I'd rather not have our message boards provide free advertising for corporations unless the product has been vetted by the members.

It was a member that posted it not a corp. Besides that's a free resource site from the industry. An actual corporation would be one of those "Be a model... or just look like one." places or an ad for an agency. There's a ton of tips on the fashion and beauty pages too for making the most of curvy figures. Sure you can never be too thin or too fit, but you can never be too hot either!

I posted it because it is good for body image to see that you don't have to be super thin to look good and because the casting calls are fun... you meet some really awesome women that way usually in your area and who like to have fun. I don't do it anymore, but it was a total party when I did! Fun! Who cares if they don't choose you?

Plus there was one post where a chick was dumped by her guy for the size of her butt. Next time some jackass tells you you're fat, say "Yeah baby and I look damn good too." Then post fashion lingerie shots to his blog and ask his geek friends if they think you look fat ;)
