I just read this response to one of my survey questions:

Question 10. Do you feel your body type is represented in the media? Please give as detailed an answer as possible.

Yes, or at least almost. I am naturally skinny, and you see a lot of skinny women in the media. However, I am quickly approaching that age when women become invisible, between young and old. We don’t see a lot of middle-aged women in media unless they still look young and well-toned. We don’t see a lot of naturally aged bodies… I’m 35, I’ve been through two pregnancies and I still look good, but my body has way more flaws (stretch marks, beginning wrinkles, a lightly rounded tummy and so on) than what you normally see.

 Thanks to everyone who has completed my survey so far.
