Reception of the issue has been positive — until today, when Amy Schumer noticed that she'd been included in the issue.
The comedian took to Instagram to vent her frustrations.
There’s nothing wrong with being plus-size ... Plus-size is considered size 16 in America. I go between a size 6 and an 8. [Glamour magazine] put me in their plus-size-only issue without asking or letting me know and it doesn’t feel right to me. Young girls seeing my body type thinking that is plus-size? What are your thoughts?” Mine are not cool Glamour, not glamorous.
The cover line that features Schumer doesn’t necessarily label her as plus-size, but names her as one of the all-plus fashion issue's “women who inspire.”
As a plus-size fashion writer, the problem that I see with adding Schumer is that the issue is full of plus-size fashion only, and since Schumer does not wear plus-size clothing, she's not the first person I'd look to as a plus-size fashion muse...
First off, we love Amy, and our readers do too – which is why we featured her on the cover of Glamour last year. The cover line on this special edition – which is aimed at women size 12 and up – simply says "Women Who Inspire Us," since we believe her passionate and vocal message of body positivity IS inspiring, as is the message of the many other women, of all sizes, featured. The edition did not describe her as plus-size. We are sorry if we offended her in any way.
