Always petite, I’ve found myself struggling from time to time to find clothing that fits just right. Whether it’s the extreme lengths of jeans that doesn’t quite work for my shorter legs or the fact that bra and panty sets and above all, bikinis, many times come paired with the same size already as a set – Small, Medium, Large, or XL, completely ignoring the fact that just because some women are shorter, slim, or under average in overall size, DOES NOT MEAN that their boobs are microscopic or that they haven’t at least got a few curves of their own.
I may be speaking for myself here, but I’ve noticed this on many occasions over the past decade or so. Maybe not so much now, as my work ethic allows me to bring in enough of an income to buy separates, but for a long time it really annoyed me that one size does not fit all when it comes to pairing up bras and undies or bikini tops and bottoms.
Also, have you ever noticed that a lot of stores do the layout of their store racks from S, M, L, XL, and those with two-tier racks often start with small on the top, then medium next to small, then large and XL on the bottom rack. Think about it – if you are selling clothing to a person who is “small” — most times said person is not so well endowed in the height attribute!! So I find myself craning and stretching to reach up to the high racks to get a look at those size small clothing items, which if I owned the store, would very nicely accommodate those of shorter status by sitting on display across racks they could reach.
Well, there’s my soap box for the day. What do you think? Have you ever felt this way about clothing sizes? Sound off in our comments about your own thoughts on the sizing situation!
