The muffin top generation.

"When I was a young girl, if you had nice legs you wore short shorts, and if you didn't, you covered up or wore something that better suited your figure." This from an older woman sitting a table over from me at Starbucks. She was chatting to what might have been her granddaughter - a girl in her early 20's. "What about cellulite?" The young girl asked. "Did people notice it the same way? Did they think it was gross?" I was trying not to be too obvious in my eavesdropping, but from the moment the old girl started talking I was hooked. I couldn't help it. "I don't think that they had invented a name for it yet" the woman said between sips of her coffee - we just wore clothing that was appropriate for our shapes back then. Now you see girls pour themselves into clothes that were not designed for their body types and everything is hanging out all over the place. You can see the rolls of fat hanging over their tight pants and its like they don't see it or don't care." The young girl nibbled her oat bar and conceded the point. "I wonder how that changed from when you were my age she asked. And then "it's like they all dressed like Britney Spears and Christina Auguilera when they were hot and then went off the rails with them when they got fat, and now they are still trying to pull it off." Their conversation abruptly veered off into something unrelated and I stopped paying attention - but it was an interesting exchange and it got me wondering what the answer to the younger girls question was. How do things shift so abruptly with people's appearances? Are we just collectively bigger now, but our idea of sexy and cool is still fits into a smaller size even if our butts don't? Should people just wear whatever they want even if it clearly doesn't work? Have we collectively lost the ability to wear clothes that are the right size and actually fit? What are your thoughts?
