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 relate to this way too much. Plus add being very tall to the mix and clothes are a bitch to find...

I have been in the same position. Too big for one store. Not enough for another not to mention my short height.

It's always a drag when the people at clothing stores don't consider the different body types of girls. The problem I always have with shopping for clothing is that I can never find clothes long enough. I have a very long body, so every time I go to the store and see something I like, 40% of the time I can't get it because it's either not my size or it's not long enough to cover my stomach when I lift up my arms

They actually did a scenario in What Would You Do about how a woman in a plus size is denied service at a clothing store because of her size!…

I think you pretty much nailed how women go through such discrimination by the workers, which is illegal I think! When I go to a store to look for clothes, I feel so ashamed and embarrassed, that I feel like someone's gonna come up to me and say something about my size.

I sometimes wish that other department stores like WalMart would have clothes for plus size women and men, and that employees would be taught about consideration, respect and compassion towards people of all sizes during their training.

I had that problem too....
just because I had alot of weight on me, didn't mean I had big boobs
it is quite frustrating is it not?

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 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. 😒

There has to be a place for the more full figured but not as full figured as some

you must make your own close a lot don't you? i always found homemade clothes to be the more rewarding. that, or the clothes you find after scouring the earth for just the right piece.

I'm like that too. But for me it's either too short of to baggy. (the hardest part is finding gloves that actually fit ;-; )
IvoryLatte Featured By Owner Edited Sep 27, 2014
Oh my 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.
sekkechi Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2014
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.
