This means that plus-size women must often buy items based only on their own measurements and how it looks on the model.
Making it worse: Smaller models may be padded in order to fill out plus-size clothes, giving them body shapes that might be more perfect than those plus-size bodies actually found in nature.
Our Final Thoughts:
Kristin: Look, I get it. Not everything is going to flatter everyone. But the amount of guesswork that goes into trying to figure out if something WILL flatter me before ordering it online is crazy-making. When you realize you’ve been misled by a store, not only are you shelling out more $ $ $ to return the item, but you’re less likely to shop there in future. So really, the only winner here is the post office.
That said, shout-out to my butt, who really held it down here.
Sheridan: Here’s the thing — I know I’m plus-size. So all you fine people who are going to say that if I don’t like the fact that my stomach shows I should get a smaller tummy, thanks in advance :) But that’s not the point. The point is that I too like to wear cute AF, fashionable clothes. If any fashion designers are listening: I’ll give you my money, just make me decent stuff in my size! Also, all y’all need to start labeling shit very clearly on websites. If I need to go up three sizes to get the same look as the model, just tell me. OK, rant over. In Melissa McCarthy we trust.
