pigtails

(no subject)

In a bizarre turnaround for the books, yesterday's attempt to find work pants that accommodate my shrinking arse yielded only a single pair of size 8 pants in Farmers, in a sea of other pants varying between size 10 and size 22.

They told me it's because they sell out so fast. Which leaves me going "Uh, buy more then?"

I'm aware that this problem is usually reversed, and that larger women often have limited choices because the world assumes everyone's thin - but in this shop, there is a whole section dedicated to size 14 and up, full of what I think are lovely clothes that don't fit me, and I ended up buying the goddamn pants because they were the only ones they had.

Luckily they are for work so I don't actually care that much, I was just a bit weirded out by the whole thing.

Clothes are hard.
