Thanks, I will feed back when I’ve spoken to Nicole.

Just as a matter of interest, in 2005 I went to America. I was slim-ish (for me) at the time, probably a size 16 & was in a good losing phase. I bought 2 T shirts from Abercrombie & Fitch while I was there, size large. Of course they were miles too small and I never got to wear them, but of course I still have them.

Anyway I decided to try them on again. I’m 5 feet 8.5 and a UK size 10-12 and yet these T shirts are still too tight to reasonably wear and they ride up. So who exactly are A & F designing for? Not me, that’s for sure!

Outrageous! Honestly, food and fashion industries need to take a long hard look at themselves don’t they? i sent a T shirt to my son last month. Size M. He is 6′ tall and muscular. It looked like it would fit an 11 year old boy. The message is WRONG on so many levels.

Is it reducing adults to children or, even worse, is it making children want an adult body too soon? And who is driving this? Top designers produce clothes that look good on teenage boys – for women to wear. Some of the models used in the most famous fashion houses are bordering on skeletal. What must they be doing to themselves to maintain such an unrealistic/unhealthy body? Bring back the days of Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, and Helena Christiansen! Ok they are slim, but they are healthy looking.

Sorry, I’ve gone off on a tangent with this one! It’s my particular bête noir. Body image is an extremely powerful thing to deal with isn’t it? Are we ever to be satisfied with how we look, even when we reach our own goals….?
