Mmmm, she’s in for a surprise..
Wow. Just wait until they can talk back to you. haha
I choose to wear their clothes because they fit me. I'm incredibly petite. I weigh 92lbs and wear a 00 and XS in everything. Their clothes are really the only brand that fit me properly.
See, I understand what you are saying. However I find it incredible that only A&F fits. Now hear me out. My best friend is a size 00 (which is still too big for her and xxs. She can buy her clothes at Giant Tiger, Walmart, Old Navy, Stitches, etc. She REFUSES to buy clothes at stores that tailor to her size because she has personally seen me and many of our other mutual friends look at those clothes and cry. It’s the same as I refuse to shop at stores like Pennington’s which is strictly for plus size women. There is no need to have a divide, none whatsoever. If companies like Walmart, Giant Tiger and Old Navy can do it, so can companies like A&F, Torrid, Penningtons, Cotton Ginny, Garage, etc.
Do you even realize how much money and respect there would be if even one of those specialty stores decided to carry all sizes? It would be groundbreaking. Unfortunately, we will never see it in our lifetime.
Anyways, I was by no means degrading you, you can shop there all you like. I just need you, and anyone else, to realize that there are other options for you, that do not involve buying an unethical brand
I’d like to point out that in this scene Peggy is having CRIPPLING emotional issues with an aspect of her body. Bobby is not only comfortable enough with his body to not give a fuck, he’s aware enough to use that to bring his mom up from what might be the lowest he’s ever seen her.

uhhhh yay sizeism & sexism? two more reasons not to shop at abercrombie and fitch. (x)
I don’t like A&F however I do believe they have every right to do this and to publicly say it as well. I mean I don’t bitch that Lane Bryant doesn’t sell my kind of clothes, I just don’t shop there. So yeah, I get it, these people sound like assholes, but they aren’t doing anything wrong.
To be honest though, I didn’t know people even shopped there still…
Do you know how much you are missing the point last time I checked Lane Bryant wasn’t a status symbol that popular kids use to lord their status over people. -__-
No I get the point. I just think people need to stop bitching about it. Stores have every right to target certain markets. Don’t get your panties in a bunch if you aren’t in that target market. The world can’t cater to everyone. So instead shop somewhere that does cater to your needs and get over it. He was just being truthful in what he said. Obviously we can tell just by looking at what this store sells, what kind of market they prefer. He just said publicly what we all already knew.
Lmfao. Honestly I think there shouldn’t have to be a Lane Bryant.
And the award for biggest chauvinist pig goes to…

No , I’m sorry as a plus sized girl. I disagree & as a mother of a little girl I disagree. I believe that companies should accommodate all shapes & sizes. These designers and store owners are promoting low self esteem. If I see something so adorably cute in AF that would totally fit my shape and style. Then I look for a size 13 they don’t have it you immediately feel like shit.
I agree. That’s why ultimately stores like the Garage end up closing. If you only carry clothing for the petite, you lose all of the average and plus size population’s money. There is no reason for stores to just stop carrying certain clothes. My opinion is, if someone has the confidence, desire and money to wear their clothes, then let them! There is nothing wrong with “fat” people wearing whatever they want and there shouldn’t be “”skinny” people dictating what does and doesn’t look good on them. All this does is make your company look like crap, not the people wearing the clothes.
This is so demeaning and heartless on so many ways. And it would have been no matter how he worded it.
Not by no means trying to be rude, but with the mindset I am in right now, I do not want to see judgmental people on my blog. I have too much going on and seeing hate towards different parenting styles is really triggering for me right now. I really just need to keep it positive. I only will unfollow if you do not tag your posts. Sorry.
