(Forbes)   If you buy a regular-sized gray dress at Target, it's called "heather gray." If you buy the plus-sized version, it's called "manatee gray." Hmmm   (forbes.com) divider line 102

I was positively outraged when I was perusing the selection of muumuus.  The regular sizes are labelled muumuu, but the plus sizes were labelled moomoo.

Cerebral Knievel: Propain_az: Hey, I like like fat women.  Turn your nose up, while I am getting laid.

heavy, plus, plumper, thick, curves are all good, just don't be a land whale.

But I do find it interesting that the plus sized dress is cheaper than the regular sized dress.

jaytkay: theorellior: YoOjo: How can you say she looks anything other than a bit of a face at a funny angle?

That's like the MySpace Angle gone plaid. She's probably 300+.

Of course you would. Look at the size of it.

freetomato: WeenerGord: freetomato: So, if a woman just starts eating kleenex for dinner, she can buy the more eloquently named dress and pay more?

Depends on how much gravy she smothers the kleenex in

There could be a niche market for Ex-Lax gravy.

In the earlier tissue-eater thread, they mentioned Crystal Renn was back down to a size 2. Granted I am a straight woman not a skinny gay fashionista man, but I think she looked better as a "plus size' 10.

/Do I sound fat? 5'8", size 10. Could lose a few pounds but not a hog by a long shot, I don't think.


I am completely unable to put into my head what size 2 or size 10 even looks like.  I know the whole fashion industry is obsessed with "I can count your ribs from across the room" size models and that they consider normal weight "plus-sized", but what different dress sizes actually look like is pretty foreign to me.

Did you just come from the 40s? Sizes nowadays need to be more than doubled to equal sizes from your time. What is a 12 now would have been something like a 30 from your time.

No, I'm just a dude who has never felt the need to go dress shopping.  Once the dress is off the girl, I'm more interested in the girl than trying to check the dress for a tag...

As a dude I have no idea what "size 10" means in units of real measurement. Add to that overhearing hearing girls say thing like well this brand's 10 is really a 7 but this one could really be a 15 even though it says 11.

This might help.  I'm a relatively tall chick compared to my peers.  I'm built about like my height/weight match on this database.  I am afraid a generation of young men have expectations built upon airbrushed, low body fat models vs. the females they encounter in everyday life.  Some perspective is needed. As is a microscope upon themselves and their relative attractiveness. Physical perfection is great to ogle, I ogle too. Do you want to marry it, grow old with it?  I counseled a former co-worker of mine who had been through 3 Hawaiian Tropic model/Stripper type women and had his dick ground into the dirt.  I told him "Dude, a good solid 7/8 will be the wife and mother you want over a 10 who is a psycho."  He listened, he heeded, he's married to a cute lady who is a mom to his son. They've been married 4 years and he seems proud to be with her.

It's a snarky, skinny biatch/gay man thing, probably subconsciously.  Kind of feeds into the "thin is good" mentality which leads pie-eyed wanna be models to starve themselves.

You are absolutely right. It creates a chilling effect where demeaning someone is accepted as long as it's half hidden. That ain't good.

Ugh, I wish Target wouldn't sell the plus-sized attire. It's bad enough knowing there's fat people out there, let alone having to share aisle space with them while I do my shopping.

Though, it is funny seeing them stare in bewilderment at the items in my cart. No, dear, that isn't a "house plant", it's a head of broccoli, and yes, I it's edible. I know it doesn't come in a box, but trust me on this.

She can sound fat but I don't see anything in that pic to confirm if she looks thin, or fat.
Of course I could go GIS her, which I assume you might've, but from that pic she's neither, even if it is the standard selfie angle for body issue women.

You're very close to the bad region. Once you get to 38, you're noticeably fat from all angles.

Pert: I have a question for the Target spokesman... How stupid do you think we are?


I worked at Target Corp. and it sounds about right to me. You would expect a major retailer to have developed very precise and efficient technology and procedures to handle operations, but that place is pretty much staying afloat through the combined efforts of a lot of people who manually make things happen. I suspect that is why the median age of the employees is so low. On the plus side, the headquarters is stocked to the rafters with pretty young women in their mid-20s.

So glad I don't have to deal with chubby chasing roommates and the stories I had to sit thru when their girl toys were around (they just messed around with them, didn't date them seriously).
I will never be able to get the sight of a 300+ girl talking about her tight vaginal cavity while my roommate's tongue lolled on the floor out of my head, nor the 250+ one talking about lingerie shopping and trying on all the clothes while he drooled so damn much I had to get the swiffer mop

/not kidding
//she doesn't need to be a stick figure, but I do like my women to be a little on the petite side
