Dear Target, We Need to Talk

Target, I love you. I really do.

I love your Dollar Spot with trinkets that eventually clutter my house.

I love your 70% off clearance.

I love your cute kid clothes.

I love your Market Pantry  and Archer Farms brands.

But, we need to have a talk.

We need to talk about how you size your Women’s Clothing.

I’m not a skinny girl. I wear a size 16 or 18 pants purchased from most clothing stores. I’m used to buying XL. I’ve even come to terms with the fact that I have to buy an XXL at your stores.

But things have gone too far.

Yesterday I bought a belt from Target. Yes, some of us fat girls need belts, both for fashion, and because people like me with no hips and no butt tend to lose our pants. No one wants to see me pulling my pants up all day!

I did not feel the need to go to a fitting room to try on a belt.

I sucked it up.

I bought one of the only XXL belts in the store. It wasn’t even pretty. It was functional.

I got home, ready to finally keep my pants up and guess what? THAT STUPID TARGET BELT WAS TOO SMALL!!!!!

I mean, really. I expect that from some skinny girl store. And don’t get me started on what I think about Lane Bryant.

So what is a fluffy girl to do?

Target, let me clue you in to something. I am NOT your fattest customer.

But your sizing on women’s clothing is going to drive all but the thinnest girls away.

We have enough to deal with already. For that matter, I’m pretty sure my skinny friends are annoyed with sizing up as well!

So, can anyone let a big girl know where to get a belt? Thanks.
