A phrase here that ought to please

"Although this is not necessarily germane to LISA, I did want to steer you to an interesting site ART IS LIFE (Ed: cannot find the URL), which features an article on the fashion model Lisa Fonssagrives-Penn, who had a documented natural waist span of only 17 inches! She of course was on the slender, not voluptuous, side, but at least was no Kate Moss. Save for Vampira and possibly a handful of other shapely women, this is the smallest natural waist that has anything like a real foundation."
