Too Big Too Small by humon Too Big Too Small by humon
I'm that weird ambiguous size where I'm lucky if I can fit into the biggest size they have in normal clothing stores, and even luckier if I can fit the smalles size in the fat lady stores. And despite being chubby I don't have breasts the size of my head so big clothes often looks weird on me even when it fits otherwise.

The idea for the comic came from when after looking for clothes in a normal store and finding nothing that fit, went to one of the fat lady stores and the woman said, "I'm sorry, but I think you're just not fat enough to shop here" after I had tried on a million different things. :XD:

By the way, the first dress I'm wearing in the comic is supposed to be one of those classic flower-print summer dresses which I failed horribly at coloring.

EDIT: Haha! No one has ever said "Get out you're too [...]" to me. I made them say that for joke effect. Neither am I sad that she told me I wasn't fat enough to shop there. Made me quite happy actually. It just made it a pain to find clothes. So you don't have to try and cheer me up. This is supposed to be funny! :XD:

I gave up on ever fitting anything right and just wear comfy yard sale clothes.  When you fit in anything from a 6 to a 14 in pants...how the heck are you supposed to figure out what you actually are?

Haha vanity sizing also makes it hard to shop. Normally I'm anywhere from 0 - 5 in juniors for pants/shorts and today when I went to Target to get some shorts, the 00 were too big and even the kids XL was a little big on me (luckily the kids stuff has the little tightening thing in the waist) but was my only option because Large was too small. 😒

Oh my goodness....you wouldn't believe how difficult it was to find some petite pants in size small. I only found two at Kohl's! I've got news for the clothes industry: not every woman is 6 feet tall! Also, not all of the women who are short are overweight, too.

I have the issue of nothing fits in the regular sections and, I'm appearently taller then all the big girls in America, because the shirts are too short, and the pants look like high waters.

i'm a very very strange size... i have a small middle but my hips and thighs are big and i have a fairly large chest size...  some would call it an hourglass shape but i call it an hourglass that's too wide on the bottom and too short. i can never find pants that are my length, so i always have to edit that, and if they fit my legs then chances are they're way too wide for my waist *sighs*

Not very well, buddy. My girlfriend was heartbroken. Thankfully she was able to hold up her head and not allow it to ruin the rest of her day. I'm surprised she didn't beat anyone to death to be honest.

I don't necessarily have the same problem, but due to having pretty broad shoulders for my height (5'10), I have to buy XL shirts, or I tear the sleeves. Kinda awkward.

I run into this problem all the time in stores... I have large thighs, a big bum and broad shoulders, but a small waist and i'm tall. So I often need plus sized pants, but normal sized shirts that come in at the waist... :P Thank goodness for the internet having a wider availability of clothes that I like than the stores!

That totally describes me- fortunately, I've lost a little weight, but for the most of my teen to young adult years, I've hovered right around 12-14. Add that to the fact that NO ONE seems to think that an fashion industry wide size standard or stlye proportions (a bootcut here is fine, but there not so much) might make sense leaves my flitting most times from store to store to complete an outfit (except for walmart...but they only have so much I care to buy from them . :l)

Here's to hoping that getting to a size 10 will be better. :l

Also, great work as always. ;D
