Jessica Simpson‘s fluctuating weight never ceases to make headlines, but for once, the blonde bombshell isn’t giving it a second thought. Fresh off her globe-trotting journey for her VH1 reality show The Price of Beauty , Simpson has come to realize “we all obsess over looking like the perfect Barbie type, and that’s not always what’s beautiful. It’s about making peace with yourself.” Now, the Lucky September cover girl has finally come to terms with her own body issues and is embracing her curvy hourglass figure. And for Simpson, that means learning how to dress for her body. Simpson dishes, “I’m a huge Jean Paul Gaultier fan. His pieces make my waist look good. Yes, they’re an investment, but I’ll have them when I’m old and gray.” On a more casual note, Jessica relies on Tucker’s blousy, long-sleeved silk tops. “Whenever I wear them, I make sure to show off my legs a little bit!” Her bottoms of choice? “I like skinny jeans, but I wear them a bit baggy and lower on my hips and roll them up at the bottom,” reveals the beauty. And of course, her favorite pairs are from her new denim line–which she donned for her cover shoot!

Photoshopped. I wish my waist was that skinny. But I’d have to wear a corset to get there.

Get over it, she looks like an average size women. We need more of this so maybe girls out there will feel better about their bodies and appearance. I am 5’8 and was 125 until I had two kids now I am 5’8 and 155 and perfectly average and I love it! She look great!

Wow, this girl has gone through a lot of changes in her appearance! She has definately looked better in the past. She looks painfully uncomfortable. It’s a shame, because she is attractive. Just not her best look to date.

If Jessica is comfortable with her position on her weight why did she allow them to have a cover photo of her that is photo-shopped?

Maybe they put her head on someone else’s body…??

Ugh! She so needs to get over herself!

She is so pretty…maybe everyone here needs to stop being jealous and work on yourself first before you judge someone else.

I think a lot of it is more about the magazine photoshopping her down to that tiny of a size.

I think she looks better bigger because she looks happier.

Yeah…lets all throw stones at the girl who has an optimistic outlook on life and doesn’t take it for granted. Let’s hang the girl who entertains the troops, brings women’s body image issues to the forefront,and does a good share for charity. Let’s all pounce on this young woman who is honest enough to admit she has struggled to find love and has been left feeling insecure often, just like every other girl. Let’s make her feel uglier than she has felt in the past, instead of cutting her some slack. This girl wants nothing more than to have her own family and make other women feel good about their own issues. I doubt that she was thinking about how they would photoshop her, that is if they even did since we have no idea when the photos were taken….but yeah…does it even matter? Because we love to hate her and we get off on putting other people down.

I think it’s really unfair of society to sit there and point fingers at people. Not one woman on this earth would want someone sizing them up, calling them fat or skinny. I am tired of watching anorexic celebrities and then listening to people dogging the ones who aren’t! She isn’t fat and I wish more celebrities looked normal like her. There would be a lot more satisfied woman if celebs would start being normal.
She was probably photoshopped because she had no choice, magazines have had issues before, photoshopping celebs without them being aware. You know women are our worse enemies, constantly dogging one or another. Soon obese will be considered size 2.
I hope JS stays the way she is and doesn’t sell out like the rest of the bobble headed skeletons.
