(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 29

Why is the larger dress $3 cheaper?

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: 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.


You still have to share public space with everyone else, whether you like it or not. Most people don't have a problem with this. But then, not everyone is as rude and stupid as you are.

It's the farking name, of the farking color!  It's not like it's printed across the backside or something.
Is this really what people are concerned with now?

Oh, it's not a spectator sport. You're encouraged to participate. Might burn off some of that chub if you do...

What's the problem here? Manatees are fat and ugly so it makes sense to call a "plus-sized" version of a dress by the proper name. Don't wanna wear "manatee grey"? Put down the fork and get some exercise.

ParadisePornoTheater: DownDaRiver: The Twitiot sounds fat

She looks tiny.  Try harder.


Are you referring to @SuZen pictured above?
How can you say she looks anything other than a bit of a face at a funny angle?
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.
Ugh, I said selfie, someone kick my balls for me.

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.

Give me a Reuben sandwich.  I'll jiggle in the right places with no apologies.

Glendale: 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.

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.

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...

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