Frustrated with Clothing Sizes
Friday, January 13, 2012
Nothing new here, just a short rant. Buying clothes is frustrating. I spent a couple of hours last night trying on sweaters, because I'm really running out of clothes to wear to work! I thought I found something, but I think the super overly flattering mirror in the dressing room (you know the kind!) was lying to me, because when I got home I found the sweater was pretty unflattering.
Pants and skirts aren't so hard for me, but with tops I often find that regular women's clothing just doesn't fit me. I'm too big and curvy for most petite sizes, too short for regular sizing, and too small for plus sizes. BLAH. Also, the armholes and necklines on a lot of regular women's clothing are too big/low for me...
I know many (most?) women have trouble finding clothes that fit. We all know how arbitrary women's clothing sizes are, too...
But it's frustrating to try on a bunch of things and just not be able to find anything that fits. I need to learn how to knit REALLY REALLY WELL. And find a good tailor.
In other news, happy Friday!
