Pictures of obese women can be found on several stock photo websites, including Shutterstock and Pond5. Photos of obese women can also be found on websites such as Bajiroo, and more humorous photos of obese women can also be found on Chill Point.
Shutterstock and Pond5 both charge fees for the use of their stock photos. Shutterstock charges either for individual images downloaded, or allows users to subscribe to the website on a monthly or yearly basis. Users are allowed to download 25 images per day. Pond5 allows its contributors to set their own prices, so the price varies from $1 to $100 depending on what size the photo is and what the maximum price is set at.
The photos posted on Bajiroo and Chill Point are set up as galleries people can browse through, but they are not photos for people to buy. In addition to women, both Shutterstock and Pond5 have photos of obese men and children available for people to buy and download.
Obesity is defined as a disorder where an individual has an excessive amount of fat on his or her body. If left unchecked and not managed properly, it can lead to health problems such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes, according to The Mayo Clinic.
