If we wish to go back even further in time for a woman in men's formal wear, would that help?
Yes, Marlene was beautiful, as was Diana. Do you know if either woman dressed like this often, or only occasionally, say for a movie role or to make a statement/cause a stir?
The nice thing about being me is I have experienced several stages. I was 6"2 and 185 for several years and could bench press 275 three times, before putting on a good bit of weight during my first year of marriage from ceasing to weight lift and not recognizing the caloric content of hard alcohol, and getting up to 225 in 2007. I stopped lifting weights around 2010 as it was not helping me lose weight, and I wanted to put my attention on running. 155 is my ideal, and would put me at less than 8% body fat. I am 165ish right now. I wish I had less muscle than I do because it doesn't help my distance running much, or goal of a sub 2:45 marathon or life goal of sub 2:30. 155-160 would be a healthy weight, 148 would be a twig, but that is exactly what "race weight" is. There is a reason all the vast majority of the elite male marathoners are between 120-130ish, with a 1.88-1.90 lbs per inch ratio. Having been relatively strong, then obese (50+ lbs overweight), and now somewhat slim, I would take who I am now in a heartbeat, which consequentially allows me to have a low resting heartbeat, as well as a healthy heartbeat. Do you understand person who criticizes without divulging their own personal information as well to compare?
I am well aware of the fact that style changes throughout history and did not state the opposite, in fact I took 90 credits worth in college. The ideal masculine and feminine form is the ideal personal form, filtered through my personal taste, experience, and education etc; this is basic philosophy. Everything I write here is opinion, well to me conviction, to you opinion. And what you write, may be conviction to you, but is only opinion to me. And really, there are only about three people on this site whose opinions really matter to this site.
