I wish they would abolish sizes under 10... I think even if I was 125 lbs (my ideal weight, I'm actually 150), I think I could never squeeze myself into anything below a 10. I wear 12 right now (14 in some clothes). I am big boned, too. I am about 5'6" and built like a line-backer. Haha. Broad shoulders and all that crap.
I really think Bono was TOO skinny during the Pop era. He did not look healthy (though he did look muscular). I think he looked best during TJT era. But, of course, I think he's aging well...
I think so too. During the nineties, a little too thin.
P.S. Most women wear sizes 12/14.
Marilyn Monroe was a healthy size 14. Why cant we go back to that standard?
Ya know whats funny? People are so sensitive about weight and size that everyone criticizes everyone. You want to be accepted for being a 14, but say Bono was too thin in the 90's. It goes both ways. Ya know whats amazing? If people just eat correctly and get regular exercise, you will find your natural weight. I used to think I was "big boned". What a crock of shite that was. Once I started eating correctly and doing about 5-7 hours of exercise/week(nothing crazy) my weight is exactly where those charts always said it should be. The secret is that there is no secret. Keep eating loads of sugar,alcohol, soda, ice cream, breads, pasta, heavy cream/butter, and guess what, the world will continue to be "big boned". Its quite simple actually. Now I know that all genetic makeup is different, but I promise you that in NO ONE'S genetic makeup is anyone intended to have fat stores all over their body. Yes it takes discipline, commitment, and time, but anyone can do it. But you might just have to, gasp, work at it. Sorry if I come across strongly, but I am passionate about it. I struggled with body image my entire life. I thought you were either born with a good one or not. I learned that I can do something about it with hard work and changing my beliefs
, one of which is that there was nothing I could do about it, so pass the pizza. Not anymore. Now I will step off my soapbox
