So it was interesting article in the Wall Street Journal today…
There is an obesity problem in the U.S.
But the statistics in terms of the typical sizes of fashion (for women) has been “largely” overlooked.
The biggest size most fashion brands even bother to sell is: 12
“Only 7% of womenswear stocked at multi-brand retailers is a size 14 or above.”
But the average American dress size is between between 16 and 18!
The typical runway model is size 2.
BTW, I think men have the same problem with sizing.
There was another thing about measurement in the WSJ today having to do with measuring time.
Day is measured by the earth rotation (on its axis).
Year by the rotation around the sun.
Month by rotation of the moon.
Earth, Sun, and Moon…give us time.
Now we need to take all the wonderful time we have measured and not spend it all eating. 😉
