I really wonder about designers at time.

I stopped by the mall today to pick up my new glasses.  I was wearing a shirt I’m not particularly fond of, but it was clean.  I decided to get a new shirt.  I browsed a few stores, but couldn’t find something cute in my size.  I stopped into Sears to look around.  I found a cute shirt in Sears in my size, but even that cute shirt could not remove my disgust for the monsters on the rack posted above.

What the hell are those things?  Are the bowling shirts?  And why are they so ugly?

The sad thing is many stores  have a women’s section has to ugliest pieces of crap on sale.  I don’t know if it’s because some of the cute styles are thought to make larger women seem larger or what.  Are they trying to shame women into losing weight by offering only ugly crap?

I don’t know about you, but I doubt women size 2 would like to be offered those same shirts above.  Size 2 people would be disgusted.  And I doubt that shirt would sell in 5-7-9.  They are ugly no matter the size. And yet,bigger chicks are suppose to embrace that crap?

    So often over the years I’ve wondered the same thing, “Who designs this stuff?”. It’s easy to find cute and trendy size 2 women’s clothing while plus sizes appear to have come from drapery and table cloth designers. While shopping for my wife I’ve frequently seen things I wished were available in her size and wondered what the company women’s apparel buyer was thinking. Did they really not have any better choices?

    The best place I’ve found is Catherines who caters to plus size women with trendy fashions but even then you have to shop regularly to find what you want. More recently though I like to shop online at http://www.justmysize.com. Keep an close eye out and you can occasionally find some two for one deals or buy one get half off another. Especially at the change of seasons. I’ve been pleased with my purchases online and, besides, it’s hard to find a twenty two inch inseam in stores and capris at justmysize.com are just about perfect.

    I’ve always been a big fella and I know that horizontal lines are a no-no for anyone wider than a bean pole, yet they’re still available in the limited big&tall offerings. I’m not one for vertical patterns either, but some plaid designs can be okay as long as it doesn’t look like 3 acres of checkerboard were harvested for the final product, lol…
