Umm. Here I was hoping my mother wouldn't read this thread. I doubt they were worse, considerably warmer, and intended for artisitc purposes. To the best of my knowledge, the film has been destroyed.
I really would do it, except that if my mother bought one... oh dear! And I don't play anything...
Matt, you're so sweet! If it helps, I don't generally suffer under that misconception, but then, I've been under my recommended weight allowance for as long as I've paid attention. (Even now, when my metabolism has stopped going nuts.) I'm 5'9" and 9 1/2 stone, and I figure my body feels good, looks fine, and does what I tell it to - who needs more?
