Good article for the curvy ladies (including me) to read!
Two years old but a really interesting blend of known science and some hypothesis on the topic of how women and men differ identically perceive women's bodies and how that might tie into "eternal" values we get from evolution and more fashion-oriented values we get from culture. Also, apparently the tendency of human women to have hip and leg fat is related to helping a baby's brain develop?! Mind blown.

You know you want to play hooky in this amazing weather and explore the city!
Have you been to Mount Sutro Open Space Reserve? This 61-acre eucalyptus forest situated in the heart of the city was the perfect place to get some shade on this warm, summery SF day.
