Where The Waist Is

The Worker-Dandiest mocks; but with today's low-rise jeans and other fashions, a woman's waist does appear to be lost. At least in terms of garment construction.

It seems to me that the entire concept of the "female form" as defined in years past is lost. The whole "36-26-36" ideal has become "32-22-28" which even less average women meet than the old "standard". Not to be a chauvanist but it seems the male standard has changed also. Not that it matters to much to me because I never met that one myself.

I do miss it however, I dont know if it is just cultural conditioning but I certainly appreciated (appreciate) the more "hourglass" definition of years past even if it was a goal more than a reality.
