Women want sophisticated and cute outfits in all sizes. It feels sometimes that the fashion industry has forgotten about the full-figured gal. For every woman who can relate, here are the 10 struggles only plus-size women can understand.
- Finding the Right Wedding Dress
To find plus size wedding dresses with sleeves is a major obstacle for plus-sized women because the dress will fit specific areas, but it always seems that they need alterations for the sleeves. The size of the lady’s arms determines if the dress fits in this area, and the problem when they find sleeves that work, there are still problem areas elsewhere.
- Store Do Not Carry Your Size
When stores do not carry their sizes, it can become a mind-freaking nightmare. Unlike their tiny counterparts, they cannot just go into any store and find their size. This can become frustrating especially when finding a cute outfit in the store window just later discover that the sizes stop at 12.
- Feeling Restricted to Certain Stores
A plus-size woman knows all too well that when it comes to shopping, there are limitations when choosing a store. It’s not the same for them as it is for skinny women, and plus-sized women feel like they are restricted to certain stores only.
- Finding Clothes That Fit–Everywhere
The search for clothing that fits everywhere is a common annoyance, and it can lead to higher costs for alterations. Plus-sized women deserve to find clothing in their size that fits properly.
- Facing Higher Clothing Costs
It’s a common hindrance for plus-sized women is that they often pay more for their clothing than slimmer women. It’s just some extra material, and manufacturers need to price these items fairly for all women.
- Inconsistent Plus Sizes
When it comes to brands, the sizes are never the same. Plus-sized women are not the same size in all brands, and this leads them to have to try on everything. No one wants to have to stop and try on all their clothes. Who has that kind of time anyway?
- Judgments and Rudeness from Sales People
Salespeople often judge plus-size women and act rudely toward them. This could be because they had an almond for breakfast, and they are hungry. Who knows? It is ridiculous, and it must stop now.
- Jeans and Pants Become Worn Too Quickly
Chub-rub is a real problem for women who have thicker thighs, and jeans will never last as long for them. Maybe it’s time for manufacturers to understand that their thighs will rub together when they want, and perhaps it is time to create better material.
- Going Shopping With Friends That Aren’t Plus Size
Shopping with skinny friends is just too much sometimes. Yes, they can walk into a store and find exactly what they want anytime, but it’s a little rude to force others who don’t have this advantage to watch them.
- Shopping for Cute Bras
All women deserve to have cute bras! It doesn’t matter how large their breasts are. It is time for manufacturers to realize that plus-size women are beautiful and deserve the same advantages of their counterparts. Maybe it’s time that they get on that.
Women with full figures are breathtakingly beautiful and deserve the same advantages from the fashion industry that everyone else gets. It’s time to stop all the struggles and make elegant clothing for all stores in plus sizes.
