Don’t clothing manufacturers and shoe manufacturers have any idea what real women are built like?

Seriously we are all different.  It’s not a one size fits all world, no matter how much these companies would like it to be.

Let me start with shoes.  We all have different widths of feet, would it hurt to make ALL sizes in ALL widths?  And then there’s shoe size.  I’m a 9.5 or 10, don’t have to many problems most of the time.  It’s my girls that are really struggling.  One is a size 10.5 and the other is a size 11.5  Why do shoe people quit making half sizes when you get over a 10?  I’m pretty sure my girls aren’t the only women on eath to have big feet that fall between the whole sizes.

And then there are the folks who make pants.  A 32 is a long inseam???  Really??????  My mother is 5‘5“.  She wears a 32 inseam.  I’m 5‘10“ish, I wear considerably longer pants.  

I’ve been wearing the same brand pants for years and years and years.  Well honeslty, I’ve been wearing the same jeans since jr high because they fit my tiny waist.  They are not cute, in fact I’d say they are the un-cutest jeans around, but they‘re the only things that fit.

But now I’ve gotten fat.  That opens up a whole new fitting mess.  Apparently because I’ve gotten fat I’m supposed to have shrunk by about 6“.  All kinds of companies are making jeans in sizes 18 and up now.  But try finding a pair that comes in a 34 inseam.  Just doesn’t happen.  

And shirt tails.  Do clothing manufacturers really think I want my middle aged gut or butt crack showing.  Why can’t they make shirt tails that cover these things?

Ok, I’m done with my rant now I think.

After thursday’s shopping trip I’m just really really angry with the clothing industry as a whole.

Love it
