1912’s Perfect Woman

24 Dec

Before we go dark for the holidays, I wanted to share this article from DailyMail. It’s about a Cornell student in 1912 considered to be the perfect size at 5′ 7″ and 171 pounds, with 35″ bust, 30″ waist, and 40″ hips.

Blogger Kate Harding wrote, “At Banana Republic, to pick a random contemporary store, she would wear a size 8 top, a 12/14 bottom, and probably a 12 dress with the bust taken in.”

Sounds pretty hot to me.


Merriest of Holidays and Happy New Year, everyone!!
