The History of Fatness

In Chapter 7 of her book What I Learned From the Fat Years, Anne Strieber continues her discussion of clothes. She writes, "New customers entering women's departments for the first time should know how we pioneering fat ladies had to struggle. It reminds me of what the suffragettes went through, campaigning for votes for women. I eventually became curious about what it was like to shop in my mother's era. Women were pretty curvy then?did they have as much trouble shopping as I did?"
