Elle Magazine, STOP doing this with plus size covers!

Dear Elle Magazine,

Gabby's cover from last year!
First of all, let me go ahead and give you your props. Not only does your magazine feature plus size women front and center on your covers, but you do so with black women. Hallelujah! Black is beautiful right?! But not so fast Elle, I would be remiss if I didn't ask you this: why do you insist on using closely cropped covers of these plus size beauties? What's up with the head and shoulders look? Why not show the actresses from the hips up or full body? I demand answers! You did this before last year with Gabourey Sidibe and now with tOctavia Spencer. Again I ask why? If you are going to be big and bold then please feature plus size models/actresses in all their glory. We want to see the full body in the cover. Talk to me y'all, am I overreacting or do you agree with me?
