The Hourglass Woman


Remember when this (a size 6-8) was the epitome of sexy?  Yea me neither.  Though recently the more bodacious and curvaceous figure is slowly being well received in Hollywood again (Hello Scarlett Johansson!), I highly doubt we will we ever see such full figured gals walking down the runways.    However creating the illusion of the hourglass appears to be on the minds of designers as of late with particular focus on the waist.  Can’t say for sure if designers are intending to point out the irony or not, but either way, it’s a rather amusing trend.
