Now, I'm sure you have seen me say I am a big girl. I'm not talking about "I'm a big girl now", no I mean I am a biggg girl. The last time I saw any size under a ten, I was in the fifth grade.
There, the secret is out! Relief. Naw, not really, but oh well!
I reveal this, cause I have an issue right in front of my eyes. An issue that has me pretty crazed right now.
Let me give you a little background...
Many years ago, a got a flyer in the mail. I thumbed through it and found a cute nightgown for only 6.99+tax. I ordered it in my big girl size and was very pleased. I then started getting a bunch of magazines from all over the place selling big girl clothes. After the first year of many magazines, I began to noticed a trend that was irritating to me then and still irritates me.
See if you can see, what is wrong with these pictures...
Well, did you figure it out?
Just in case you didn't...I'll tell you.
Nothing about those pics say here are some big girl clothes! None of these women are big girls! Now don't get me wrong, they are beautiful, gorgeous even.
Here's the issue...
How are big girls supposed to know what the garments are going to look like on their own bodies? Are we supposed to visually blow these models up?
I have gone through the whole magazine and all of the models look like (they put the smallest garment of the sizes they sell) the clothes are swimming on them.
I know that if I was to buy garment #3 (which I want to), it is not going to hang so lovely on me as it does the model.
Then they have to have this model for us to compare to...
Check out how skinny her arms are!
The bras are just as bad. They have some beautiful bras, but once you start putting bigger stuff in them, they don't look so great anymore. (Sorry guys, I'm not putting up pics of boobies)
I guess all I'm saying is...if they really want to appeal to the larger women, they need to get larger women as models or at least be true to what they are selling, which is BIG GIRL clothes!.
What do you think?
