    I am an A Level student currently writing a report for my media studies coursework on the idealized images what appear in magazines.
    I am now currently looking for some opinions from members in the public about the pressure on women to look good like celebrities in magazines, and because of size zero.
    I would be very grateful for all of your opinions, whether you agree or disagree with size zero and the pressure on women.
    Please comment back - all comments welcome :)

    Thankyou

    To be honest I dont feel any pressure to be a Size Zero and the women on this site are supporting each other to loose unhealthy weight gain. I havent come across anyone who is trying to be anything other than a Size that suits their build / height. All focus on having a healthy BMI and being able to buy "normal clothes" and being healthy.......

    There are pressures to be a "normal healthy weight" and I think to be honest that's good motivation in most cases as it keeps us focussed on getting to our weight target and maintaing but most balanced educated women (in my experience) think Size Zero is just a load of non-sense and a total turnoff for most men and other women...

    Would be surprised if you get any other type of view on this site??? I would say though that I am concerned about really young teenagers who dont really have the life experience/confidence.....
