I've always been a fan of fuller-figured models. There's a great site with many images of Crystal and other plus-size models here:

They're all gorgeous.

The site's forum also has thought-provoking discussions about body image and the media.

thank you so much for including an asexuality-oriented link this week. that article was as objective a one as i have ever seen. every bit of awareness helps. it really does.

(that said, i'm thoroughly enjoying looking through the rest of the links and in particular think that plato's closet is shameful in that apparent "no fatties" policy. way to feed the self-hate machine.)
