    • I started 7th grade at 56 lbs and a Misses size 14, because I had no boobs being a gymnast and dancer the darts they used to put in the chest area were ridiculous in 1966


      • Sears and J.C. Penney catalogues were where my mom shopped out of in the 1970s and 1980s…I always wore the ‘super-slim’ girl’s clothing, and even then had to have the waists taken in an inch or so. I was a skinny little rail who didn’t reach 100 lbs. until 8th grade, then shot from 5 feet to 5′ 9″ in two years. I’m 5′ 11″ now, and still have to get my clothes altered to fit right, no matter where I buy them from.
