Are you Normal?

Wednesday, July 09, 2008

Statisitics are just that - statistics... but numbers entertain me...

The current issue of Glamour Magazine had the following article: (It doesn't give a lot of info about the poll sample... which would be interesting to see - I'd bet it was some sortof reader's poll though... so based on the readers of glamour magazine :D

Is your body normal?

The average woman's bra size: 36C (up from 34B just 9 years ago)
The average woman's shoe size: 8
The average woman's waist in inches around : 36.5 (they concede it's healthier to keep it under 35 inches)
Percent of women who are at least somewhat satisfied with their body weight and shape: 57

Average height in inches: 64" (that's 5'4")_
Percent of young american women who wear a size 12 dress or larger: 44 (no definition of what young equals)
Average weight, in pounds for a woman in her 20s 156.5 (the number climbs to 163 for a woman in her 30s.

While i knew i wasn't all that normal...

my boobs are apparently too big
my feet are too big
my waist is barely under normal... which the nubmer they quote seems really high to me... and in a dress size, I'm more of a 14 tthough bottoms I wear a 10/12... so not normal there either... the height thing really suprises me - I rarely see women around who are that short... I'm only 5'9 and don't consider that to be tall - most women around me are 5'7 ish.. rarely to I see anyone under 5'6....

    Hawaii is filled with 4'11" to 5'3" lovelies.

Its a madhouse in the petite departments or near the size 6 shoe racks on Macys sales days.

    Average heights vary quite a bit by where you live. NY has a much shorter average than Illinois, for instance.
SO- somewhere in the US, there are a bunch of super shorties.
Heights have been....climbing... over the past 100 years. Averages have really changed.
