shopping for a wedding gown

Spent a lovely evening with my grandsons wife shopping for her wedding gown. They intend to renew their vows after his deployment to Afghanistan ends, on their 5th wedding anniversary. The first wedding was a simple affair and this time it will be a more traditional one. She's going to be a beautiful bride and shopping for gowns was fun. Having said that i can say the personal trauma of spending the evening with a lovely young girl who considers herself "FAT" may take awhile to get over! I am
I acknowledge overweight,,and the full length mirrors in any store are enough reality on their own. How do we teach our children to hate themselves sooo thoroughly? It's just sad . When did the standard for beauty become a size zero? ( and by the way HOW can that BE a size?!)
