... hips absolutely would not go down another size to what my taller, more bosomy roommate wore. You are absolutely right about bone structure: Even if I had been consciously starving myself (and I'm so sorry you were) the bones were not going to permit it.

The issue with really young girls is shocking: my slender daughter said something to me about her "fat thighs" when she was in 5th grade. I about choked. By the time she was in 7th grade one of her 8th grade friends she'd known since grade school had become seriously anorexic. As I write this I wonder if it was that girl who was already talking about supposedly fat thighs a few years previously. :-(
