The other day I posted about this really neat Pikachu hoodie that Hot Topic has. And I wanted it so bad! I love Pokemon, Pikachu is one of my favorite Pokemon and having a Pikachu hoodie that had Pikachu ears would have been cool.
I went to the closest Hot Topic to me because I wanted to see how the hoodies looked and which would fit me the best. The largest they had was a 2X and I don’t wear a 2X. I wear large or X-large when it comes to t-shirts, hoodies, jackets, etc. So, a 2X should have fit me. It should have been way too big on me, actually.
But it wasn’t. It was too small. This is a problem with woman’s clothes that just seems to get worse. For whatever reason, these clothing companies must think that all woman have the same type of body, that basically we’re all the same size and when a women’s shirt is a X-Large, it’s not really an X-Large. It’s not only Hot Topic that carries clothes like this. K-mart, Wal-mart and pretty much any place that carries women’s clothing has clothes like this.
I’m not skinny, but I don’t wear plus size clothing. It’s too big for me. But I’m having more and more problems finding women’s clothing, especially t-shirts, hoodies, etc that fit me. Even though it says it is my size, they don’t fit. When it comes to women’s clothing anymore larges aren’t larges, X-Larges aren’t X-Larges. And I can only think it is because the clothing companies have some type of idea in their head that all women’s bodies are the same. Or maybe, it is their way of saying that is how all women’s bodies should be. Either way, it is annoying and disappointing. I am very disappointed because I won’t be getting the Pikachu hoodie now. What’s the point of buying it when it doesn’t fit right?
And another thing, why whenever I go to the women’s/girls clothing, or the girls toy section, there is so much pink? I know for some people pink is their favorite color, but this color is just shoved down girls and women’s throats. I’ve been to the tool section of Wal-mart and they even have tools just especially for women. I know they are for women because they’re pink.
I’m not putting anyone down who likes pink, but for whatever reason, companies seem to think all girls and women are the same. And since we’re all the same, we all like pink and have the same size bodies. It’s just annoying.
Sorry for the rant.
