Body Stats : Height, Weight, Size, etc.

men measuring woman,monte-carlo,1996 by helmut newton.15-25Gs
Helmut Newton : 1996

I’m 5’7″ …I wish I were taller, my husband wishes I were shorter

Bone size: very Large

I normally weigh around 130lbs

Measurements: 36, 27, 36-1/2

I wear a size 4 and sometimes a 6 {which I am happy with}

I’m a Small/Medium {if sizes go by s,m,l}

In jeans, I’m a 27 or 28 …depending on the jeans

Bra size: 34C

Shoe size: 9 …designer shoes, 39.5 or 40

When I’m shopping/buying vintage, I rarely look at sizes, I just try it on and if I can make it work, I’ll buy it. Sizes change by decade.

By Hollywood Standards, I am fat. {which I think is ridiculous} I don’t believe in diets, I believe in moderation. I’m never “trying to get skinny” and I think worrying too much about that is a waste of time.

The key, in my opinion to dressing and looking great, is really just figuring out what works best on your body, regardless of size {and regardless of trends}. Accentuate your goods, hide your flaws. If you can squeeze into a 2 when you’re actually a 6 I guarantee you are not doing yourself any favors. No one can see that size tag but they can sure see your muffin top 😉

I have a fairly good body image. Although, don’t get me wrong, when I go over my top weight, I don’t like the way it feels …and I cut back on the sweets. I don’t really exercise regularly but I do stretch often …sometimes an hour before bed {while watching TV}, a mix of yoga/pilates/my own moves. I try to stay very active {taking the stairs instead of the elevator, random and sporadic outbreaks of dance, hand stands, butt flexes while driving ;}, although I know I’m going to have to start being more regularly active very soon just to keep what I got.

I learned in my teens that I was never going to be “skinny” but I accepted that …it may have helped that the supermodels of my time were glamazons {Cindy, Claudia, Linda, Naomi …except for Kate} …and the women I thought were beautiful and sexy were curvy. I also realized that curves are more fun {and beautiful} to look at {and to touch} than bones are …and I think most men – NO – most everybody would agree to that.
