Why Does the Fashion Industry Harm Women's Health?

Why do modern day cat-walk models look so weird? They do not look like the average women, because they are extremely skinny and very tall. The excuse for this, is that clothes look better on these types of women.

This makes no sense whatsoever, because these clothes still have to be worn by normal looking women. So how can the average women get any sense of what these clothes look like on them, when they see them being worn by models, so very different then the average women?

The problem could be, is that the fashion industry is dominated by homosexual men and heterosexual women, and both of these types of people do not seem to appreciate feminine beauty. The ideal masculine shape, appreciated by heterosexual women, is a person with wide shoulders going down to slim hips and a small bottom. While the ideal feminine shape appreciated by most heterosexual men, is an hourglass figure with wide hips, large bottom and large breasts

So it seems that the homosexual male and heterosexual female fashion designers, do not see the feminine figure as looking beautiful. They much prefer themasculine figure. This is why modern day cat-walk models are trying to look like men. The problem is that if a woman tries to emulate a male figure with wide shoulders, slim hips and small bottom, although she cannot grow wide shoulders, she can, slim right down so that she has no fat on her hips and bottom.

The consequence of that is, the rest of her body is also slimmed down, so she ends up being a very skinny person. Fashion designers also tend to pick very tall models, again for the same reasons and that is men are generally taller than women, and so fashion models are as tall, or even taller, than the average man.

If this was only a fashion quirk, this wouldn't be a problem, but people are actually dying because of this crazy fashion. The slimming diseases anorexia and bulimia rank as the third most common chronic illness in adolescent females. Some are actually starving themselves to death, and even those who don’t do this, the terrible effects on a person’s health through starvation, can still kill them. The fashion models themselves are not immune from this either, as many of them have also died of these slimming diseases

Unfortunately, the fashion industry accepts no responsibility for this, and continues to promote extremely thin models on the cat-walk and in fashion magazines. Some heterosexual men also do not help either, because many men think it is funny that their normal size girlfriends or wives are paranoia about their weight or the size of their bottoms, and think that telling a woman, “you’re too fat”, is a joke. Other men also use it as a means of punishing women if they are not getting what they want from them. Or even use it as a weapon to undermine women’s confidence, and gain power over them. This is because a unconfident women is less likely to challenge the behaviour of the man she is living with

Some men are also affected by this fashion, as 1 in 7 of the people suffering from slimming diseases are men. Other men have been brainwashed into thinking very skinny women are beautiful. It is ironic that a woman like Marilyn Monroe and film-star of the 1950s who then was then seen as having the perfect figure, would be now be seen by many, as too fat.

Fortunately, it is not all bad news. On British TV, the fashion expert, Gok Wan, has set out to give normal size women, confidence that they are beautiful, in his popular shows, How to look Good Naked. For this he needs to be greatly commended. So at least some people in the fashion industry are willing to try to repair the harm, of what they are doing to women. More Info: Prom dress short
