Answer by mrzebra
It is a significant factor in the development of eating disorders since all models are portrayed as skinny, so skinny. Such portrayals, especially one who is consider a prime example or what a woman should be like (model), then it puts stress on other woman to look that skinny. Thus, they may begin to obsess and eventually it will harm how they eat.
