Marilyn Munroe was a size 14 .I expect we've all seen that written somewhere ,usually to bolster a "curvy" womans self esteem.I have no problem with bolstering self esteem in any one,but maybe it should be pointed out when its said.that sizing was very different in the 50's.
I've always believed I was overweight .Mainly because my mother used to tell me I was.Yesterday my husband came across a box of clothes in the attic from the 60's and 70's .Many were a 10 and 12 ,the size 12 "Shubette" dress has a 22 inch waist .A size 12 nowadays has a 30 inch and sometimes larger .I'm wearing a size 10 today with a 27 inch waist .Has the change in size come with an increase in womens size or has it led it?Do women believe that as long as the frock has a small size number on it they are thin?
Son's fiancee hates us - we're going to family therapy
My dilemma is that she's a slob - how to discuss with her?
A level of gravitas and decorum has been lost - don't think she's a naive player
