Again a reminder, I’m sponsoring a giveaway for the book I reviewed yesterday. You may enter the contest as many times as you like. To enter, leave a comment or comments on any post(s) on this site over the next week.
Tomorrow I’m being featured in an interview on NPR’s Weekend Edition Sunday. The schedule isn’t up yet but the topic is related to clothing fit and sizing. The correspondent is Marisa Penaloza. I haven’t heard it so I don’t know how the topic matured. I never anticipate a favorable treatment because so much of what I write about sizing is a radical departure from what most people think they know. I don’t care if no one on the planet (other than scientists, engineers and econ grads) agrees with me, there is no such thing as vanity sizing.
And as usual since this site is so resource intensive and it is difficult to slog through thousands of posts (but you still want a survey of material here), this is the weekly archives post. Meaning, below are links to entries published on this site over the past six years. Cruise the list for topics of interest and as always, there is more if you want to scan the archives page which lists every entry ever published.
