Though designed as a mere convenience, clothing sizes establish an unintended norm, an ideal from which deviations seem like flaws. There's nothing like a trip to the dressing room to convince a woman-fat, thin, or in-between-that's she's a freak.- Virginia Postrel
Hello and this is Pat Coakley! Welcome to PODSNACKS the weekly edition of my daily blog www.artofthediet.com. Today, in a slight departure from interviewing folks who have maintained a significant weight loss for over a year, I am interviewing Tina, a veteran sales person from a ladies fashion store. I want to do a whole series of the meaning of clothes to women so I thought I'd begin with someone who sells clothes at a well known women's fashion store.
I wanted to know what she has learned about women and their bodies as she helps them shop for clothes. It's a simple question, really, perhaps individually we could all give our own answer, but as you shall see, it has come complications. I think you'll enjoy meeting Tina and may not look at a dressing room again in quite the same way.

But, today, we're talking: clothes, women, and dressing rooms.
The interview with Tina that you are about to hear is a combination of humor and wisdom that she's accumulated over the past few years helping women find the right outfit! I wish I'd had a sales person like Tina over the years!
