When it comes to fashion, you have to pay attention to the math.
In the world of fashion, vital statistics are EVERYTHING. The statistics we are talking about are measures of the bust/waist/hip. You might call them the holy grail of measurements; the three inflection points of the female body shape.
The three sizes are used mostly in fashion, and almost exclusively in reference to women, who want a greater tendency to develop a waist that is narrow in relation to the bust and hips. The hourglass figure has always been defined as the body shape to which most women aspire, the shape most often associated with Marilyn Monroe.
Marilyn Monroe had an advantage!
Marilyn’s extreme hourglass shape can be partially attributed to the fact that women’s sizes today are not at all equivalent to women’s sizes in the 1950s. In the 1980s, in order to accommodate feminine vanity and females’ ever-expanding girth, the U.S. Department of Commerce got rid of the uniform sizing system and instead allowed for more ego-stroking sizing. As a result of this, today, what we today call a size 8 would have been roughly equivalent to a size 16-18 in the 1950s! While adjustments vary from brand to brand, the sizing differential is common practice.
But, wouldn’t we all like to have Marilyn’s figure?
Regardless of their own vital statistics, most women desire a more defined, curving waistline. That’s the statistic they most focus on. They know that a slimmer waist provides more opportunities to wear more fashionable clothing that will fit better and make them feel better about themselves.
But, the pursuit of an hourglass figure is an ongoing challenge for most of us. As we age and experience menopause, fat deposits move from the hips to the stomach area. This compounds the challenges associated with losing unwanted fat in the belly area. It’s in this area that fat, known as love handles, or muffin tops, seem to be impervious to exercise and diet.
What’s a woman to do?
Guyer Institute has a solution. As a certified practice for CoolSculpting®, our technicians in Synergy Spa can literally freeze the fat away in these stubborn areas.
CoolSculpting® fat reduction procedure is specifically designed for those who have unwanted fat that resists diet and exercise. And, unlike gastric bypass surgery, the CoolSculpting® procedure is not a weight loss solution for people who are obese. It is, however a non-surgical alternative to liposuction. There is no anesthesia or needles involved so that means no downtime!
Using a special applicator strapped to the area where the excess fat exists, CoolSculpting® chills the skin for about an hour. During this time, the fat cells are crystallized (frozen) and then die. The destroyed cells are naturally eliminated from the body, leaving a more sculpted you.
