When did the the size 16 become XL? Going to the Good-Will the other day and looking at jeans I saw a tag that read XL and the size was 16. can you believe that? When did we get so abscessed with being skinny. 17 and cosmo tell us that size 0-5 is healthy and hot. Is it really? If you are a size 2 with a bra size of 23 A are you really hot? Everyone is anorexic and belimic these days and so unhealthy. I'm not saying that being 250 lb is good ether (even though I'm 189) but at least be healthy. And I do not think that when you go into a store and realize that a size 11 is large is right. What about all the girls that have hips? Thighs?butts? Are they all fat and ugly? That's what TV. Is showing us you can't be happy unless you r a size 3,and you can see there ribs. So much pressure is on us to be what is in and hot. I love Queen Latifah. She empowers girls like me and the rest of us who were size 14 and up, well I think that anyways. She is proud to be big and bold.
