they all weigh the same

UK blogger and Huffington Post contributor Foz Meadows posted an article to her website with a study claiming that our perception of weight is completely distorted. Meadows makes a point in stating that BMI – which is a somewhat standard measure that most use to classify weight – is inaccurate, based on the fact that doesn’t take frame or body type into account. Those who are taller will inevitably have higher numbers. Age is also a factor to consider, considering teens are yet to settle into their adult weights and older adults tend to lose height over time.

The image attached shows that the size you wear doesn’t actually make a difference as to where you fall on the weight spectrum. Every one of these women weighs the "Australian Average", proving women’s sizes vary significantly based on their body type and height.
