I would agree, but I don't as you haven't mentioned anything about this being a style and shop issue.
I said earlier it would be easier if womens clothes like mens were based on actual sizes, i.e. 38" waist, they can do it with Boulder Holders for ladies, why not actual clothes?
Your assignation that a lady wearing a size 16 in the uk is Obese, I still find fundamentally rude, whether or not you grew up with rationing or not. A lady in a 16 from Evans's, Asda or M&S, I would possibly agree, a lady in a 16 from Primark, Next, H&M, I would say no, definitely not (although it would be height dependant!)
I really can't say whether a 20 when you were a girl is now a 16, I think not, and I think that living in the UK it is apparent that everyone has not grown so big they have had to make the sizes smaller, but now I do feel a bit silly for argueing what is really a mute point, one for which I don't really have a strong view on, but I do know MMM that a lady living in the UK at this point in time, who has recently dieted to get into a 16 dress size, comes on here to read nice gardening stuff, would be mortified to find people saying that a 16 is really a 20, and they should get real and accept they are still FAT.
Does that make sence?

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.
