A short young woman with very heavy hips and thighs stands before a mirror and gives herself a sponge bath; a basin and large pitcher are on the shelf in front of her. Her high-heeled shoes come over her ankles, and stockings cover up past her knees. Other than that she wears only a loose shift which she pushes aside to wash under her arms. Her dark wavy hair hangs loose. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/20/95)
