    Sick Of Kids Clothes

    I am short and petite (c. 5ft2in) and I find it damned near impossible to find clothes, especially jeans, that fit properly.It is SO frustrating. Add to this most peoples' scorn "You could save money by shopping in the Kids Section!", etc, and I get pretty cross as it isn't...

    This Was Sent to Me By a Pastor (female)

    When I was a child in the 1960's the bathing suit for the mature figure was-boned, trussed and reinforced, not so much sewn as engineered. They were built to hold back and uplift and they did a good job. Today's stretch fabrics are designed for the prepubescent girl...

    The Problem With a Small A.ss...

    I don't have much of an a.ss. It's not that I'm altogether too thin. I just don't have a butt, really. And so it's extremely hard to find pants that fit. Frustrating as hell.

    I Am In Shape...

    Round is a shape, however, they don't make pants that fit me where I am round! Needless to say, I sew a lot of my own clothes which at least helps me keep my mildly Bohemian/Gypsy/Native style going strong :)

    Belly Fat Is Frustrating!

    I've always gained weight in my stomach more than anywhere else on my body, I get that from my mama. She has a bigger belly than I do and her fat drags unlike my own. I guess, since I'm younger, I'm not at that point yet. But if I continue down this road with no exercise, I'll be...

    For Pete's Sake

    I am a short, roundish person. No one seems to make clothes that fit short, roundish people. Therefore, going shopping leads me to the verge of an apopletic fit. Victoria's Secret does not even stock its stores with the size bra I need. I have to order them from the internet...

    Junk In the Trunk

    I have a VERY LARGE ***. Seriously I can admit that. I am so tired of people seeing my underwear in the back. I wear a belt, and then my skin (with it's eczema and nickel allergy) gets all irritated and you can still see my underwear. If I don't wear a belt, it looks like I have...

    What I Have to Do....

    I have to do one of two things... I have to get four of five XL shirts from the big and tall man's place, or when I get a new suit, I have to have it tailored.

    OMG Yes Please........

    What I would really really like...... Is an universal sizing chart. You can't say it's a 18 & it NOT be an 18. It annoys the HELL out of me. My size changes depending on the brand I buy..... Of course now I just try to stay with the brands that make me feel thinner because I...
