Not really. The ideal woman was thin, beautiful, and delicate. Curves certainly didn't seem at all fashionable given how they would have been hidden away beneath layers of fabric and a very tight corset. And yes, Alexandra worried about Marie's weight.

yes but still some of the known beautiful women at that time hade curves indeed but of course with the corsets to get a thin "bee" figure one of the known women at that time were Lillian Russel..

She was heavier when she was younger (early-mid teens), but she did slim down as she got older. Alexandra always worried about Marie's weight when she was young, because although it was then fashionable to be heavier than today, women would supposed be thin,especially around the waist. By 1917/18 Alexandra was worried about Anastasia's weight stating in a letter that Anastasia was getting as heavy as Marie used to be. Marie was never as thin as Olga/ Tatiana but she was much thinner by the time of the revolution and their imprisonment.

I think that around the revolution, Aleksandra didn't have much room to talk. She was looking sort of round herself.  ::)

I think you have a point about Alexandra ;) People who live in glass houses shoudn't throw stones ;) Allthough it is understandable why Alexandra was rather round after five pregnancies.

I don't think that Maria was fat.

Maria could have been, if you compare her with Tatiana, a bit fat. But I think that that was because Tatiana was too skiny.I don't think that Maria would have been what is considered as a fat person.thanks and sorry if I had gramatical or spelling mistakes.

I dont know, but men did take walks and such. Of course, back then everyone had a more active life style.
But, , also back then, foods werent overly processed and stuff. Things were all organic and natural. Plus, Alix was a vegatarian.
But, still, there is a downside to all that freshness-- MORE FAT AND CALORIES!!! :o :-X
What I mean is that now, you can find food that is fat free and dietic, but it is proven scientifically that dietic food is worse than the real thing.
I am not really sure-- ??? :-[
