I’m reading this article in the NY Times about the fact that 60%+ of women are fat, and yet fat clothes revenues are only 8% of the total. WTF – are there a bunch of naked fatties running around?
I read on and the article talks about how fat women don’t buy clothes because they don’t like what’s offered (d’oh – yah think?).
But clothing manufacturers say they can’t make fat clothes because you can’t predict how the fat body will be shaped (yay us – diversity rocks).
Well excuse me, but have they heard of separates? You know where you can buy one size pants to fit your big ass, but another size top which fits your smaller top – or vice versa? Hello?
This is not rocket science folks.
Go into any store in the mall for the “average” sized (not fat) woman – and will you see rack upon rack of dresses? Nooooooooo – chances are you will see rack upon rack of separates.
Sorry clothing manufacturers – we’re fat, not stupid. As Terry Pratchett says, yank the other one, it’s got bells on it.
