Tall & Fat Store Vs. Anorexic & Short Store

What's up with American Eagle, Abercrombie and Hollister? They're not doing a heck of a lot to help my self-esteem!

I found myself shopping this past weekend - I wanted to spend my holiday gift certificates - so I thought I would check out these three stores. Being a kid at heart and trying not to dress like I'm ready for the retirement home I walked into all three of these places.

I normally wear a medium in a shirt. If I'm looking for a relaxed fit, I might go up to a large. (My birthday is in April)

Medium at these places would fit my dogs - they weigh about twenty-two pounds. Large would fit my neighbor's kid. I think he weighs about 45 lbs. What's up with this nonsense? I would have needed a 5X (if they made it) to wear a garment manufactured by these folks.

But it did make me realize something..........the kids wearing these clothes really do have no butts.

I went over to Bass, Van Heusen and Geofrey Beene. I bought Big Kid clothes. I bought my medium and smiled.

How about you? Are you smiling about a smaller size these days.

I've had equally traumatic experiences at Target, Bob's. I always walk out with nuttin' but dishwashing soap or socks. A lot of the young women sporting these tight tops and low pants, have big bellies and love handles out there for the world to admire. Don't quite get it.

I like Land's End. They offer "classic" cuts in addition to trendier cuts and will shorten most pants for FREE :-)
