Big magazine news

The LA Times runs a feature on Grace Magazine, a new launch for “plus-size” women. The article is filled with intendend (and some unintended) puns (“it’s a huge, huge market”).


Samir Husni, the head of University of Mississippi’s magazine program. “There may be many, many large women out there, but they don’t necessarily want to focus on that aspect of themselves. That’s why there is not a successful Divorce magazine. Grace may get a cult following, but I believe they will have trouble attracting a mass readership.”

Grace editor Ceslie Armstrong says that 70% of American women wear size 12 or above (thus the “huge” pun), but maybe Husni has a point.
