I'd certainly use print advertising as a third source. There are still many popular magazines out there like People, InStyle, that feature both men and women models.  Seldom do the models represent typical body types.  While some people may feel inadequate as compared to these models, others feel they can become more glamorous, attractive, sexy, if they buy and use the products advertised. 
First, however, you must determine your own opinion and develop your thesis statement based on that point of view.  Then only use examples which support your thesis.  Your thesis should be in paragraph one and be a clear, well-worded statement.
Hope this helps.
