NPR commentator Lori Gottlieb contemplates Gain Weight, Lose Perspective: When Sizes Grow. What's interesting to me: she speculates that future women's sizes will incorporate imaginary numbers (i.e., multiples of the square root of -1) and negative numbers. (I realize she was being facetious.)
My surprising inference was that this trend to "less than zero" sizes is driven by fairly slender women. I guess a "size 0p" would be a consolation prize for those women who lost the zaftig lottery.
Hmm - it's not restricted to women's fashions: I measured some of my trousers, and the waist measurements are a couple of inches more than what the label says.
I wasn't invited to the recent get-together of Progressive MT bloggers (maybe because my blog is non-political ;-), but maybe this post means I'll be invited whenever the MT fashion bloggers throw a party...
