This link is the original blog post on Feministing.
So this is a really well written blog post, don’t get me wrong, but let’s dig a little deeper. Sure they are all different sizes and they are all extremely beautiful, but one vital component that we are missing from this piece is the problems with the way women’s clothes are sized to begin with! Have you ever noticed that men’s jeans have options of waist size accompanied with length? Women who choose to buy from the women’s section are often faced with predicaments such as buying a pair of jeans that fit in the waist but are much too short, or vise-versa and everything in between. To put it plainly, the way that women are expected to shop for jeans is just oppressive. We are expected to fit into these jeans that have specific height-to-waist size already determined, where men’s jeans are catered to them. The idea has less to do with the models that are posing in these photographs and the sizes they represent, but rather, the fact that this system of sizing is our only option!
