People who say it’s hard to buy good, fashionable, beautiful and comfortable clothing at a moderate price in large sizes don’t know what they are talking about. Even in our tiny town, we have a store that carries such clothes in sizes up to 30. If you are unfamiliar with American sizes, I’m between sizes 14 and 16. And I’m 193 lbs (and stuck there for months, but whatever.) So you can imagine how large 30 is.
All you need to do to find such clothes is to go to stores that are owned and / or patronized by African American women. At this store I’m talking about, I literally want everything. I can’t have everything because it’s a lot and also because I’m too small for many of the things. Which is quite a pleasant feeling.
I’m still traumatized by living in Quebec where store assistants laugh in your face if you ask for anything over size 10. So it’s gratifying to be in a more welcoming environment.
All this is to say that I just went to this store to buy one little item as a birthday gift to myself and ended up leaving with nine great items at $178 total. Two 👗, one skirt, 3 pants, and three shirts.
