(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 31

namegoeshere: Why is the larger dress $3 cheaper?


It doubles as a sail for the container vessel while being shipped from China.  Thus the fuel savings are passed on to you!

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.

Xetal: Shakin_Haitian: Xetal: 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...


I agree completely, when it is covered in blood and marked exhibit A, I usually haven't checked the tag either.

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.

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

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.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: No, dear, that isn't a "house plant", it's a head of broccoli, and yes, I it's edible.


No it isn't.

If it was supposed to be edible, it wouldn't be made out of broccoli.

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.

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.
