Drop file here to send
Actresses are striving to be size 6 or smaller to fit into sample sizes on the red carpet.

But Teresa Palmer is saying ‘no’ to pressure and joining a movement that’s saying ‘yes’ to body positivity.

What's your opinion on body shaming? Is it being cruel or just being honest?

When I was underweight to the point that one friend took to calling me Skeletor and another friend physically took me to see a doctor I was an Australian size 10, possibly may have squeezed into an 8, but absolutely no way could I have ever been a size 6. My BMI was about 18 I think, my healthy weight range is 57-72kg and I was 53kg.

Have seen size 6 clothing on racks in Kmart and at a good guess, one of my sons would have fit into them at age 5. Nothing against ladies who are tiny, but no way should any woman feel pressured to lose so much weight.

A size ZERO (0) in the USA almost suggests that women are supposed to be so frail / invisible that we don't encroach on the world - but are then worth of being called beautiful ... how fucked up is that? ... What does THAT teach sons and daughters about equality and the value of a person??

That's great for her but why the need to go so desperately seeking attention about it? Kinda pathetic and seems like it's really just another way to judge women who choose not to be fat. Women should be allowed to be who they want to be so don't know why the ABC is supporting this kind of sick attack on other women. Feminists really are turning against each other. There's no more hate against ordinary women then crazy feminists.

We need to learn to be happy in the body we have been blessed with.

Maybe instead of shaming those who actually are a size 6 she should promote healthy living whether you're a size 6 or size 26

Teresa Palmer is a model, I'm not sure what she is protesting against. Also, plus sized actresses are on the red carpet

Why don't designers just be done with it and use wire coat hangers or skinny little boys. We know they'd prefer that to real women.

The world has an obesity problem. Size 6 might be tiny? But size 16-22 is too big. Most healthy women would be a size 10-14. EAT healthy. BE healthy ✌

Pining for a different size is a waste of time and energy that could be better used to make the most of the life we have now!

Size zero doesn’t exist, but people are so big that size 6-8 has been relabelled so obese people feel better about themselves. Being a healthy weight is fine but promoting obesity isn’t and it seems there is no middle ground.

Clothing always looks better on a coat hanger because it just hangs. Same as why runway models need to be so thin. Basically walking coat hangers.

It's not true for everybody.
