Glamour's Plus-Sized, Tummy-Baring Model: 'My Normal Is This' (VIDEO)

A single photo used for an article on self confidence in September's issue of Glamour magazine has caused a buzz in the modeling world. Meet Lizzi Miller: a 20-year-old, 180-pound, 5-foot-11 bombshell whose size 12-to-14 body matches that of the average American female. After she was captured smiling and showing a bit of a tummy, the Glamour website was immediately overrun with positive comments, inspiring editor-in-chief Cindi Leive to reconsider the models shown in the magazine's pages. Read Leive's blog post on the photo and the model.

WATCH as Lizzi tells The Today Show's Matt Lauer, "I'm not saying that a size 2 isn't normal...but my normal is this."
