Before size zero

I bought myself the complete Frasier box set at christmas and have just finished the entire 11 series. I think it ran from 1993-2003.  As I watched I realised that none of the main female characters nor any of the guest female stars in all that time were thin. In fact looking at them the thinnest was possibly a size eight – most women looking a healthy size 10-12.  Even the wonderful Lilith played by Bebe Neuwith, meant to be skinny in the programme looks normal to me. All these woman have visible thighs, boobs, hips and stomachs. It’s a sad state of affairs that today that would not exist. The cast of Desperate Housewives etc are skeletal by comparison. How times have changed.
