I have had enough! Who is designing the clothes we wear these days?
Last summer I bought a running skort, I love it. It is size XL.
I am in the process of buying new shirts for our softball team. I went to costco where I found these great wickable white t-shirts for $15 each. A great price, by the time I have them silk screened they may only cost me about $25.00 a shirt. No problem.
Yes problem: We are all shapes and sizes on the Barking Cows. Some of the cows are thin, some of the cows have large udders, some of the cows have done nothing but chew cud and drink beer all winter long and these cows need large shirts.
I am 5 feet 8 inches tall, I weigh in at 143 pounds. I run anywhere between 35K and 50K a week, I lift weights 3 days a week. I am a 36B (PJ ate them, breast feeding caused shrinkage, mom you lied!) My shirt size: extra large. WTF?
If you happen to be over 143 pounds what on earth are you supposed to wear? I buy extra large dress shirts and they are to small in the shoulders. Often I can barely button them over my 36B's. What if I had boobs? What would I wear to work? It frustrates me! If you are any bigger than I am is your only clothing option big sloppy T-shirts and jeans? Hello out there??? People come in all shapes and sizes, perhaps we should make clothes in all shapes and sizes. Novel concept, I know.
Is this a conspiracy? All the clothing designers are making shirts that only cover 36B's and under, all the ladies larger than that can't buy shirts. The master plan: all women over 36B must go naked. Well boys you're BUSTed, get out the fabric and start making clothes that fit everyone. I am average sized women, I should be a medium!
This problem is not gender specific either. Paul, my DH is just under 6 feet tall, he weighs in at about 190 pounds. The last dress shirt I bought for him...yes you guessed it EXTRA LARGE. It was to small in the shoulders, but fit in the body.
The Barking Cows need clothes! We can't put the whole team out to pasture naked. Can we? If we did we might win a record 2 games this year, the other team would be so busy laughing they would not be able to play.
