Summer Trips for Belly Dancers

Workshops, belly dance seminars, are the hot thing for the summer. Most professional belly dancers have put together impressing, summer packages that just call out your name. However, before making your choice, there are some things to take into consideration.

Just a thought:

What is up with the plus size models? Yesterday, I noticed an ad on about "The latest in Plus Size Fashion". Without zooming in on the photos, I noticed the women were not big, so to speak. When I did zoom in on the photo of this one woman, I thought to myself, is this what they call plus size!? I was furious!

The woman in this particular photo was just beautiful. Very attractive. And, honestly, she looks hotter then some of the, so-called "normal" models. So, I then I Googled plus size. There were so many sites comparing the "normal" models and the plus size models. All women are beautiful. I just don't consider "normal" models who have no breasts, no butt, and no curves "normal". Especially when their bones show!

Our society is sick! Like this one lady commented in her web site (forgot the name of it), about the sexy, plus size model on America's Next Top Model, "If this is what they call plus size model, then I feel sad for our young women".

What can we do to change this? More sexy, normal looking women in magazine? That is always a start. Boycott magazines? Maybe. We need to do more.
