Cheryl spoke out and said, “Actually, I don’t like that were talking about full-figured women because it’s glamorizing them.”
“Your waist should be smaller than 35. That’s what Dr. Oz said and I’m sticking to it,” she added.
Cheryl, 68, was on the cover of SI three times in the ‘70s and ‘80s and tweeted that she believes being overweight is just as problematic for your health as being anorexic or bulimic.
Meanwhile, Ashley, 29, is receiving praise for showcasing her curves and being a body activist.
“Sizing has gotten frightening. There’s a double 0 now. It's a little scary on both spectrums of weight," she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
