British research shows women's body shapes have changed from hourglass figures in the past 50 years, but the clothing industry has mainly failed to take this into accountI find this very hard to believe, because as far as I can tell the clothing industry never really got the idea that women had breasts in the first place.
I had three purposes in drawing people's attention to this snippet from the Evening Post:
1. Rant about the fact that the clothing industry fails to take into account that not everyone's body is the same shape, and joing the dots to make it clear that this is All Capitalism's Fault.
2. Make fun of the way newspapers report 'research' in such an unquestioning way, without providing the reader with any information to evaluate or understand that research.
3. Beg anyone who knows where I could get a pair of togs which are cup-sized, good for swimming and not astronomically expensive to share that knowledge.
But because I'm getting tired I'm not actually going to do any of those things, just mention that I wanted to.
