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.
