Dear Carriers of Plus-Sized Clothing,
I wanted to write to make you aware of a couple of things that I have noticed, and believe you would benefit from being made conscious of. I trust that I am not your only patron who feels this way, and figured rather than continuing to complain about you to my friends - it may be more productive to make you, the people who can actually do something about it, aware of these issues.
Let me preface this letter by stating that I appreciate you. I am genuinely grateful for your existence. Without you, I would be shopping at the tent surplus store, and be wearing muumuus in varying colors of nylon. That being said, I would like to comment on a couple of things.
I know it seems I want it both ways. The paragraphs above beg for modern fashions, and here I am bashing one of them. I guess what I am asking is to make some reasonable fashion decisions. You guys are supposed to be on the cusp of what is hot in fashion, right? Can you please utilize those skills, while also taking your clients into consideration? No overweight woman wants a short shirt. Accidental FUPA exposure is not something any of us wants to have to deal with. And it is just not sexy to have to keep yanking your shirt down constantly. I understand that it is my option to not buy Jeggings - but I would appreciate you taking it one step further. Look out for the masses here. Understand that no one wants to see someone my size in denim that looks like there is the very distinct possibility that it was painted on. No one.
For my part, I promise the following: I promise I will not wear a tube top - EVER (shout out to Ellen who said "what goes up, must come down" where these were concerned. May be the most true statement ever uttered?). I promise that I will wear clothes that are at least in the general vicinity of the correct size, and not try and jam my plump body into clothes that are entirely too small. I promise to never write you, again, if you make positive strides.
Make it and they will come. Add a couple of extra inches to cover our couple of extra inches. Help a girl out!
