I took my little one’s to the mall today in an attempt to do a one stop back to school shopping trip. Pft. Yah, that didn’t work out. Two pre-teens and one Mama all agreeing on clothes that are appropriate for back to school? Well, that my friends is a post for another day.
Today I need to rant about this:
When I went shopping what I did find was a cute little shirt for me. Kind of like this one!
A simple little plaid number with short sleeves and buttons up the front. My problem. I barely fit into the size large. Barely! Now here is the thing. I think I’m a pretty average Mama. A bit on the tall side, but average. I’m 5 ft 9” and weigh..well, none of your business what I weigh! (but the airlines aren’t asking me to step on a scale before I’m allowed on a plane. Average.)
So here is my question to you. If this average Canadian Mama is barely squeezing her bod with teeny boobs into a LARGE size shirt, what on earth are the women who are just a wee bit bigger then me
or with big boobs wearing?
Imagine if a clothing line was created where a medium size woman could fit into a medium size shirt. If the next size up was Regular and the third size was Normal? Just a thought. Sigh. Clothing designers, they aren’t making it any easier to survive life in the suburbs.
