Size Zero:..What is it ????::Size matters (Informative)

~~Size zero~~


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Size 0 is a women's clothing size in the US catalog sizes system, believed to be equivalent to a UK size 4,a European size 32,Italian size 36,an Australian size 4, or a men's size 21.Size 0 and 00 were invented due to the changing of clothing sizes over time (referred to as vanity sizing or size inflation), which has caused the adoption of lower numbers. Modern size 0 clothing, depending on brand and style, will fit measurements of anywhere from 30-22-32 inches (76-56-81 cm) to 33-25-35 inches (84-64-89 cm).
  
"Size 0" is often used to refer to extremely thin individuals (especially women), or trends associated with them. This usage does not always relate to the clothing size - the "size 0 ban" at the Madrid Fashion Week had body mass index (BMI) as its criterion, not body measurements. The BMI ban was the result of the deaths of models
Luisel RamosAna Carolina Reston, and Eliana Ramos. The three had died of eating disorders, and all had BMIs under 16. Other models with low BMIs include Snejana Onopka, Natasha Poly, and Vlada Roslyakova.



~~Size Matters~~

In the past, actress Kate Winslet has opposed digital manipulation of her images. There were reports that serious airbrushing went into the cover image of the UK Vogue of 2007, featuring Kate Winslet. The magazine denied the reports. Some years ago, fingers were pointed at GQ magazine for similar airbrushing of Kate Winslet's images.

*****************


The fashion world went gaga over size zero. Milan, Paris, Tokyo - the catwalks were teeming with pencil thin models. With size zero becoming the fad, models and wannabe models went on a drastic diet and weight reduction regimen, endangering their health. Is size zero the benchmark for beauty? Many polls say that 8 out of 10 women feel that size zero is really sexy and attractive, though they admit that it may not be always healthy. And then, even as the fashion world looked on, size zero claimed its first victim.
