Curves are in

The time for figure 'normality' has finally come back around. The fashion world might not be embracing it as much as we may hope but progress is being made.

The average dress size for a woman in the UK is a 14-16. Yes, it is true and after a dreadful size zero craze, the time for curves to be more accepted may be just around the corner. In post-war times curvaceous women were admired; icon Marilyn Monroe was a size 16 and Jackie O embraced her curves in effortless style.

Louis Vuitton showed dresses to flatter the more voluptuous woman in their AW10 collections,.

Singer Alicia Keys, who has stormed back into the UK charts following her duet with Jay Z in 'Empire State of Mind', has also embraced what nature gave her. Let her curves and the curves of most of the female population be inspiration for many fashion seasons to come. Hooray.
