Admiration for thin models can grow your self-esteem

 

Whether you believe it or not, the way you feel about your body after seeing a thin model affects you. This is what the latest studies acclaim.

Ariana F. Young, psychologist at the University at Buffalo, discovered that women felt better about their bodies after they see a thin media figure with whom they felt a bond. In addition, they start to feel similar to the star’s body size and shape, no matter what their weight is.  This doesn’t happen if women feel the model has nothing in common their personality.

According to these findings, seems like choosing a thin model to which you might feel connected might bring you numerous advantages when it comes to self-esteem.
