This is the view of MSN Life and Style magazine editor Zoe Zahra, who cites Italian Vogue as one indicator that skinny girls are out and curves are in. The glossy magazine featured plus size models on its latest cover and has even created an online offshoot of the main publication called Curve, offering fashion advice for the shapely lady.It is not just fashion that is seeing a surge in women with curves, the cosmetic surgery industry has seen a rise in the number of enquiries from those looking to create an hourglass figure with the help of liposuction surgery. Women who lack natural curves are asking surgeons to slim their waistline using fat removal surgery, which in turn will emphasise the hips and bust and create an unmistakably feminine silhouette.
