weight question

Recommended Posts

I have very mixed feelings. One one hand, it's good to see countries speaking out against glamorizing unnaturally thin women, but BMI is a pretty flawed way of determining whether someone is a healthy weight. Also, there are women who are naturally very thin, who may have to do unhealthy things to get up to an 18 BMI. Steps like this legislation are going to be necessary for change to happen, but they are far from perfect. 

Though the line about the models having to fit into the dresses is bullshit. It's designers that want to create clothing for one body type instead of a diversity of types. I'd rather see laws that require designers to showcase clothing that would fit a range of builds and types of bodies.
