I know a lot of women who can certainly relate, including myself. I hate to shop for clothing because it takes hours to find a few things and try them on only to be disappointed (if I can even find anything). After a certain point, size-wise, clothing starts becoming less appealing, doesn’t have shape, or a flattering fit. I can recall a time when I was younger, wearing ~8, when I could find things to wear, but as an adult woman with curves, forget about it. And the fact that sizing for women’s clothing is all over the place is infuriating. Some shirts, I can wear a medium, others I have to get an XXL. In pants, it can be anything from a 10 to a 16, depending on who makes it. Even then, they can be ill-fitting and unflattering. Where is the market for clothing for women of any size? Stuff that isn’t a bland or ugly bright shapeless sheet?
