ANOTHER COLUMN ON WEIGHT, ANOTHER REFERENCE TO MARILYN

I just read this article written about some character choices for the movie Twilight.  The column discusses weight and (naturally) makes a reference to Marilyn Monroe, stating she was a size 14, not a size 2.

The funny thing about the writers comment saying that Marilyn was a size 14 and not a size 2 is that Marilyn was actually around a size 12 in vintage clothing sizes and they are equal to about a size 4 in present sizes.  Size 12’s in the 50’s had 25 inch waists. Dress sizing changed over the years, so if Marilyn were alive today she would be wearing dresses in sizes 4-6, and could possibly slip into a size 2.

The point of the matter is to stop judging everyone on their size, whether you feel they are big or small. Being HEALTHY is what is important!
