I know that feelingMerle.............
Thank heavens I don't wear clothes.Penny :)
I love that! lol
That's how I feel shopping, too!
Merle; I really hate that clothes are made for narrow people. Especially t-shirts. Yes, they stretch, but only so far and those of us with a bit of width are stuck with the "one size fits all" options.Penny; you have so much to be thankful for. Not only do you not have to face clothes shopping and fitting rooms, you don't have to worry about keeping up with fashion styles either.Lee; this will be one of my bookmarks, I'll slip it into a diet book that I never read.Happy Christine; why can't manufacturers see that half the world is wider than everything they make?
Mmm. I can relate to that lol
I too have suffered a lot in purchasing clothes for me. The design which i like will be there only for the lean people and for my size there will be only limited size.
Mimsie; I know only one person who can buy clothes that don't need altering. she is young, tall and thin. Weekend-Windup; I'm an in between size. and short. One size is too tight, the next size is too loose and everything is too long.
Oh this so sounds like me and T, we love going into what I call 'skinny women's shops' and scaring the staff. We're both larger ladies, and T jokes that a pair of jeans in those shops would just about fit her left leg, she'd need another pair for the right hand side...:) Me on the other hand, I just love seeing the looks on their faces...pure mischief.
While I am not quite that big, I still am angered by the fashions aimed at the size 2 women.
The Wicked Writer; I avoid those shops as if they had plague in them (and depending on where the clothes were made maybe they do...), because everything in them seems to be made to fit six feet tall eight year olds. And all the jeans seem to be "low rise" which I hate. I'd prefer my jeans to sit higher than half an inch above my pubic bone! The sooner that fashion disappears, the happier I'll be. Susan Kane; there are women who are size 2?? shame on them, they should diet immediately!I'm kidding of course. I know that your American sizing is different from ours, out here a size 10 is very slim, size 14 is a normal looking woman, most Aussies, according to recent research appear to be a size 16. That's me. I'd love to be a size 12 again, but sitting behind a computer eating ice cream won't see it happen. Our smallest adult women's size is 8 and I think that would equal your American size 4.
