Default Re: Renaissance Fair curves

I love RenFaires and the Society for Creative Anachronism and such. There are very many curvy goddesses there, and men who will settle for nothing less. Note also that many SCA members are textile and historic fashion experts, making, weaving, sewing and dying their own fabrics and clothes in historically appropriate patterns. It's amazing. The clothes of the Middle Ages and Renaissance were definitely designed to look and feel better on fuller figures. Ready-made clothing combined with a postmodern aesthetic concerned with everything but (biological) femininity changed all that!
