I'm not talking about the obese in our society. I'm talking about people who are probably roughly in the right ball-park for their weight.
I attend a college, and I've especially noticed this phenomenon there. Young people ... say, 18-25 years old ... who have average builds, and are average weights, but who have flabby arms, legs, and especially stomachs!! I don't know if it is the clothing style these days, but the girls in particular (but also a few guys) wear these low cut pants, and short tops so that their gut hangs out for all the world to see!
Who thinks that look is attractive??
I don't recall young people looking like that when I was that age. No, we didn't have the "perfect" body shapes back then, but it almost seems to me that body shapes have changed significantly so that the stomach area is ........ much more prominent than it used to be.
Is that the fashion these days? Is a large, flabby stomach the "in" thing?
Just curious ... and a little puzzled because I grew up with the idea that we (and women in particular) should do everything we could (right down to using girdles if necessary) to hide the stomach.
Have times changed?
