Gasp & horror! They called these women "F A T"! How demeaning and insensitive! I mean, just because they had to reinforce that runway with brick and mortar and a 'normal' person could have made a parachute out of those drawers that's no reason to become an abusive fat-head. 😜

Q: How do you make love to a fat woman?

This was probably the first time in quite a while that there had been enough unrationed food to be able to put weight on - not to mention enough unrationed fabric to be able to make more than one set of plus-size clothes.

It seems that no one remembers how history has viewed characteristics that have defined wealth and beauty. Look at a Titian nude and check out the serious thighs on some of those babes. Only the poor were really thin due to lack of food.

And as for a suntan? That was for the peasants at one time.

Now what sets apart the rich from the hoi-polioi? The exact opposite. Go figure.

Back in the 70s the Italian designers made all their women's slacks a bit baggy in the thigh. This was, also, the time when 'thin' became fashionable. Now, Mediterranean women have a strong tendency towards cellulite deposits in the thighs (saddlebags) and this 'thin' fashion trend was altering the male's image of 'beauty' so the designers put it back in place and the women fell for it. Go figure!

There's a prehistoric statue called Venus of Willendorf which I've heard some idiot Western 'expert' refer to as prehistoric man's 'concept' of Mother Earth like no woman could be found looking like this in today's world. Well, they exist in abundance here in the Med, Walmart, and Mickey D's.

Those women were H-O-T-T. I have ALWAYS liked a "little meat on the bone" in my women.... I can't expect some folks to understand but I DIG CHUNKY CHICKS!!!! I'm not into the super heavyweights.....

I would much rather see the modern-day equivalent of this fashion show than those anorexic sticks you usually find on the runways. And if you want to know how to make love to a fat woman then go find one! If she'll have you....
