Clothes suck

Just a random thought

I'm needing to buy clothes and I always hate doing such things as I'm much larger than is conisdered "acceptable" for women in america.

Or I'm a currently about 40 pounds heavier than I should be for my male body structure, which makes finding "womens" clothes that fit obnoxious, since they're frequently designed for women who are closer to 120 pounds instead of 120 kg.

But mens clothes aren't cut for people who have breasts. (Heck some womens clothes aren't either).

I just think it's unfair that no gendered clothes fit me properly.

I don't understand your problem. I buy men's t-shirts and button shirts and they fit me OK. Even though I have breasts too. What kind of clothes are you trying to find?

Uhm, They fit after you add the saftey pin to keep the mens button down shirts from gaping open.

I don't really remember, mostly just going to buy clothes is annoying and things rarely fit right, and have virtually no patience for the whole process.

Oh yeah, I forgot to respond to the following:

> I just think it's unfair that no gendered clothes fit me properly.

Do you have any idea how many women would wholeheartedly agree with this statement? It's practically a cliché!

Men's clothes often have two numbers (waist and inseam for pants, two numbers for shirt size), but women's clothes usually only have one number. Thus women's clothes suck for many, many women. Get used to it.

Well, okay, so I guess I can grant you that womens bodies vary more than mens bodies and so are harder to designe clothes for.

don't listen to her - there are lots of places that agree that the way mainstream clothes are designed is totally lame, and don't do it that way.
