Marilyn Monroe’s thighs touched when she walked, when she sat down, her stomach sometimes rolled over her waistband, her butt jiggled when she walked, and these were her measurements:
Weight: 118-140 pounds
Bust: 35-37 inches
Waist: 22-23 inches
Hips: 35-36 inches
Bra size: 36D*
*her weight fluctuated throughout her life.
She wore dresses from sizes 6-10.
And she is still considered one of the most beautiful women.
Now, a lot of women aspire to be a size 2, not have their thighs touch, and not have any extra weight in their stomach.
Are women really doing it for themselves or society?
Relâche by Toyen, 1943.
“It takes too much imagination to see the sorrows of people we take for happy. Their real battles take place, like those of the stars, in some realm of light imperceptible to the human eye. It is a feat of the mind to guess another’s heart.”
— Andrew Sean Greer, The Confessions of Max Tivoli
