Natalie's Fans Say...
Hooray to Natalie Laughlin! Her article was very inspiring, and she is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful models I have seen in Glamour, as well as one of the most realistic. Happiness must come from within oneself, and Natalie has found that. Natalie, you're the norm in today's society, not the exception, and you look great!

Congratulations for including a little feature on "Plus" size model Natalie Laughlin! Plus size women can be just as beautiful. I love Glamour and I read regularly. I think it would be great if Glamour featured more plus size models.
Thanks for the article by Natalie Laughlin in your January issue. Have your considered a regular feature with "larger" size models? I loved the article and the clothes pictured because I could wear some of the clothes modeled and because I could relate to so much of what Natalie was saying.
Please include Natalie in more of your layouts. I think it is very important for all women to be included as part of what is considered attractive and desirable, particularly in the fashion industry.
I would like to thank yu for your article "My Body, My Self" in the January issue. Natalie is an absolutely beautiful woman.

Like Natalie Laughlin ("My Body, My Self" / Glamour 1/95), I had to battle with my weight and what I considered a weight problem my entire life. thank you for showing another example of someone with a positive body image.

Thanks for the article by Natalie Laughlin. Feature more models of realistic size as a regular part of your magazinw that our readers can appreciate and relate to.
Natalie Laughlin ("large-size" model) -- more common is the not-quite-perfect woman, or at least, not quite perfect in society's eyes. Once it is no longer a bid deal for someone like Natalie Laughlin to be in Glamour (who, to me, looks healthy, not heavy!), then women can start to feel good about themselves, no matter what size they are. And only then will women stop killing themselves (literally!) to meet a standard of beauty that, for some, is unrealistic.
