Two sides of the same problem...

The American obsession with the female waistline continues.

This article, Fashion's Larger Problem, from the Washington Post, discusses the problems plus size teens and young women (sizes 14-18) have finding fashionable clothing.

Over on AP (link via Dartblog), this article, Cult-Like Lure of 'Ana' Attracts Anorexics - Yahoo! News discusses the growing fascination of eating disorders and the virtual support network for them. Scary stuff, and indicative of America's divided attitude towards female beauty. God forbid women try too hard to be thin, but there's little room in popular culture for women who are overweight.
