Initial issue is taken from your first paychecks, and they receive an annual allotment intended to be used on uniform costs.   Excess costs are out of pocket.

Uniform Allowance - a certain amount of money you are given each year to spend on uniforms that:
A) Doesn't come close to covering the cost
B) gets spent at the strip club instead

Actual story worthy of public consumption on fark.com or brazen attempt on the part of Subby to update his/her collection of hot women in uniform pictures?

I think one year my ex-husband actually bought a new pair of steel toed boots out of his uniform allowance.  One year out of the seven we were married that he was in the Navy.  The year we got married they switched from dungarees to utilities and I think he probably used the uniform allowance for the intended purpose that year too, but yeah...in general I don't think he ever even thought to use it for the intended purpose.

That uniform is essentially an XL duffel bag with two M or S duffel bags for legs. The IDF hotties are so-called in spite of that regalia.

Many were left to buy larger sizes to accommodate their varying attributes (boobies), which left them looking like a walking tent (which I now have).

the trouser's "back rise" is lengthened to make room for larger hips and posteriors
(they wont make your ass look big?)
And the area behind the shoulders is sewn differently to keep the jacket from falling forward when the solider bends down. (dammit!)

So you look like a walking tent, so? We're all supposed to look the same. You don't need to look sexy and curvy in that shiat and if you have a problem with it princess, maybe the military isn't for you.

My outrage is more that they decided to do this after I got out. I got to be part of some of the road testing done on ACU's before they were mass issued, they tended to rip a lot in the crotch for the dudes. And velcro in sandy places makes zero damn sense, but whatevs. Now you can really stand at parade pretty.

That's because the standard operating procedure is

They weren't made so soldiers could be "sexy". The uniform didn't fit a female form and were uncomfortable. The jacket was too broad in the shoulder causing it to fall down, but they had to size up because the boobage wouldn't fit in the normal sized jacket. The regular pants had no butt room which is really uncomfortable to constantly have your butt compressed (just like guys probably won't like these pants because their junk would be compressed). Also the pockets and stuff on the jackets needed to be moved up to avoid the constant boob staring (which is still going to happen, but makes women feel better). Oh and this doesn't affect you at all so who cares?

There's also RFI: Rapid Fielding Initiative.  Before you deploy to a combat zone, they issue you a shiat-ton of cool-guy gear, including four or six complete sets of uniforms, and spare boots.  You also get re-issued more sets about halfway through your tour, while in theater.

I've still got uniforms I don't think I've ever worn from my last deployment.

While in this same "tent" uniform, I had precisely zero of these problems you describe. It fit fine, plenty of room, and since I was up and down vehicles on the regular, from hmmwvs to patriot launchers, lrpts and gmts. never had problems negotiating the climb. The pockets were accessible in full battle rattle just fine so...that's why i care.

The poor fit also had the body armor pressing seams and zippers and whatnot into the skin of female soldiers, that it wouldn't do to a male soldier wearing a properly sized uniform.

They also fit some female body types so poorly that female soldiers were often looked down upon by senior NCOs as "sloppy" and "unprofessional," which directly affects your chances of promotion.  We had a female mechanic in our support company with a gigantic rack on her small frame.  In order to keep her boobs from bursting out, she had to buy the next bigger size top.  She looked like a little kid wearing her dad's uniform, which isn't a good look if you're a junior NCO trying to be taken seriously by your subordinates.

So let me get this right.
-Women make up approx. 15% of the Totaly US Army strength
-Women make up approx. 0% of the combat arms MOS that the ACU is designed to accomodate
-Women are pissed that the ACU, a combat uniformed designed from the ground up as a combat fatigue for men fits women poorly while in garrison.
-And people actually give a fark about this issue?

Besides, at this point, it's my chance to be old troop yelling at cloud, and why would you come in with your entitled opinion and then be like "this doesn't apply to you so why do you care." i have a feeling it doesn't apply to you either nor does what i said, so why again? what? oh ok. I get it. just want hear yourself say something to someone in hopes they care.
