Dress sizes lower women’s self esteem, I am generally a size 12 – 14 with most clothes.
I pulled out the New Cove dress below to wear today and realised it is a size 10, Woo! Woo!.
I have other dresses that are sized XL and that really upsets me.
There should be a standard dress size across the world or at least in Australia the should be standard sizing.
For ladies who are trying to lose weight or maintain there weight it can be very depressing to fall in love with a dress only to find that the size is 2 -3 sizes larger than you would normally buy.
We are fickle creatures and will generally buy it anyway, but that is NOT the point.
I just wish that someone would start thinking about the women who are not size 6 and 170cm tall.
Thank you for featuring in your September issue real women who are on the shorter side of the measuring stick. Three of the four women were between 162cm and 165cm tall, which is my and my friends height range. Usually, the women who grace these pages are around the 180cm mark, which never feels relative to us. This issue of the magazine will be a keeper.
I wish more women would speak up about this so that something can be done and give us older girls a chance to feel feminine and beautiful in our graceful years.
I LOVE magazines and love to buy them, but when I do, I get a bit down as all they feature is young very tall very skinny girls, what about us older women.
WE ARE PEOPLE TOO AND WE LOVE FASHION JUST AS MUCH AS THE TALL SKINNY YOUNGER WOMEN.
