* ''Comicbook/{{Ms Marvel 2014}}: Kamala, who is very much an AudienceSurrogate, originally fantasized about being like Carol Danvers, who fits conventional beauty standards, including weight. After using her powers to look as close to Danvers as possible, she realizes how uncomfortable the uniform is and how her natural body shape is incompatible with that ideal.

As such, this is somewhat of a CyclicTrope alongside its thin and lithe inverse, changing from one to the other every 10 to 20 years or so. For example, TheSixties and to a lesser extent TheSeventies were marked by a thin, ballerina-like ideal (e.g., Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy, Liz Montgomery, even a younger Marilyn Monroe) and/or toned and fit (Farrah Fawcett and Olivia Newton John), following a fad for "va-va-voom" voluptuousness in the Forties through mid-Fifties (e.g., Mae West, Betty Grable), which in turn had supplanted the slender look of TheRoaringTwenties and TheThirties. TheEighties brought bustier sex symbols, while TheNineties brought in the Heroin Chic, with extremely skinny models raising concerns regarding eating disorders in the later years of TheOughts. Finally in the 2010s, "padded" and even flat-out overweight sizes have been brought into mainstream appeal.

*** What was really insulting was.that a RunningGag developed where Molly would be pantsed, revealing granny panties. Which she was forced to wear.


Added DiffLines:

*** Management did believe she was too thick, though. Mickie had been wearing a skirt to [[{{Gainaxing}} bounce around in]] on her way to the ring, showing off her thighs. After her initial feud with TrishStratus, she was forced to switch to tights as they believed men wouldny find her attractive.

As such, this is somewhat of a CyclicTrope alongside its thin and lithe inverse, changing from one to the other every 10 to 20 years or so. For example, TheSixties and to a lesser extent TheSeventies were marked by a very thin, waif-ish ballerina-like ideal (e.g., Audrey Hepburn, Twiggy, Liz Montgomery), following a fad for "va-va-voom" voluptuousness in the Forties through mid-Fifties (e.g., Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, Jane Russell), which in turn had supplanted the slender look of TheRoaringTwenties and TheThirties. TheEighties brought curvier sex symbols, while TheNineties brought in the Heroin Chic, with extremely skinny models raising concerns regarding eating disorders in the later years of TheOughts. Finally in the 2010s, curvaceousness has been brought back into mainstream appeal.

* Nia Vardalos admitted that she shot herself in the foot by naming her script ''Film/MyBigFatGreekWedding''. The resultant publicity tour had reporters endlessly asking about her weight, obliging her to drop forty pounds. She landed a starring role in ''My Life in Ruins'', but in an ironic reversal, [[RogerEbert critics]] complained they missed the old Vardalos, and didn't warm to this stick-thin imposter with bleached teeth. Every interview with Vardalos now has her fielding question about the weight ''loss''.

* Levis jeans also tried to implement this in a marketing campaign . . . using supermodel-thin women. Yes, really. The goal of the campaign was to appeal to women of "all shapes and sizes", but they flatly ''refused'' to use actual plus-size women or women with large buttocks to ''actually promote it.''

** WordOfGod is the whole angle was done to punish Molly (a devout Christian in real life) for refusing to flaunt her sexuality and be more of a Fanservice girl like most of the other Divas were at that time.

* ''Webcomic/QuestionableContent'': Faye Whitaker's struggle with her weight is occasionally a source of drama for her character, particularly since she spends most of her time with women much skinnier than her; one strip has her angsting about splitting her pants while getting dressed, and another has her openly worrying about joining a gym, where people can see her buttocks jiggle whenever she uses a treadmill. Appropriately, Faye also deals with the broadest range of "real" issues over the course of the series, coping with depression, emotional intimacy, [[spoiler: the suicide of a parent]], and [[spoiler: losing her job due to alcoholism]].
