Too Skinny for Spain.jpg

Many complain that the media is filled with unrealistic images of the ideal. One common complaint is that models are too thin. I had a friend once who studied fashion design and she explained to me that it's a problem of proportions. Many dress mannequins still used today are based on the woman of the 1950s.

Not necessarily small dress size wise but perfectly proportioned breasts, waists and hips as back in those days, women still wore girdles underneath her clothing. It led to a smaller cinched in waist, lifted breasts and smoothed out minimized hips. Without the use of a girdle or a corset, few women have proportionate bodies, especially at a normal weight.

Hence, female catwalkers have become skinnier and skinnier to achieve unrealistic measurements of breasts equaling hips and a waist at least 10 inches smaller than their tops and bottoms. Too small breasts can always be padded up a bit.

For most haute couture, the designer is perfectly happy if his or her canvas is almost flat to highlight the lines of the design and allow the fabric to drape without bumps or bulges.

Nevertheless, according to London's Evening Standard (09/09/06) the country of Spain has taken unprecedented action against the anorexic tendencies of the fashion elite. The organizers of Spain's Fashion Week decided to calculate the BMI (Body Mass Index) of each model and disqualify those that were underweight.

BMI is calculation based on height and weight that supposedly for a healthy weight equal anywhere from 18 to 25, Numbers above or below are considered unhealthy since under is underweight and over is overweight.

Spain's most celebrated model, Esther Canadas didn't make the cut, as her BMI is only 14. Many readers of the article, mainly male, said that it would be used as an excuse for overweight women to keep overeating. Not sure if not condoning not eating automatically supports overindulgence but some folks only think in extremes.

For myself since sperm has at least 350 calories per serving, I say a woman with a normal appetite is a good thing. Maybe if Esther wouldn't have spit she'd have made in Spain.

I agree with you on your thinking that T.V., and other forms of media are showing the world and unhealthy point of view, and because of this the young girls are growing up and thinking that they have to be 95lbs to get any were in life.

But it doesn't stop with models, it stems all the way to movies, music, the arts, and even video games.

I will come right out and say this, I am "NOT" a 95lbs tooth pick, nor am I 350lbs, I am normal! Not a world used to often when it comes to woman, huh!?

I think there should be plus size models on runway shows, most plus size women and beautiful, and drop dead sexy.

Well muscle weighs more than fat... I've seen that 350lbs lady before... and she ain't sporting flab on any inch of her body, she's really strong though... creepy strong. Let's face it, with the world the way it is, what is normal?
