A better method would be tent sizing. Instead of size 18 call it a size t2,( meaning 2 normal size people would fit).  Anything over 24 would be party size.

Are fatties turning gay?

I've always been a big fan of the "Misses/Women's" distinction.  Yes, not all women are fat, but fat women don't want to be given a special designation either.

Have you seen a Pride parade in Chicago?

Why not just say Plus.  That way people who lose weight could be nonplussed.
 
2017-09-13 02:40:45 PM  
Couldn't they refer to them as "flabulously sized"?

Your mother is so fabulous that when she goes clothes shopping at Kmart they send her to the glamping tent section in sporting goods!

I am tired of making excuses for Americans being fat. I am sitting in my work cafe right now, and I see everyday what my peers eat.  They have fantastic healthy options, but the line for the grill is longest.

Cheeseburgers with tater tots (extra tots $.50  extra) is not going to keep you trim.

Sitting won't do it either.
Shouldn't you be at the gym?

I do, their "basic edition" line has some nice cheap comfy capris and work-out gear.

I however, would only shop online, the stores are a disaster no matter were I go.

I think the first time I saw a "dress barn women" sign, it was early enough that the distinction was barely plausible.
/still thinks its funny
//maybe not to the dude buying a dress
///yes, not all crossdressers are transgendered.  But I certainly didn't get the details when I first saw the sign
 
2017-09-13 04:31:32 PM  
why can't we just call it normal-sized clothing

I will now have to get a "No Fabulous Chicks" sticker for my truck.

Nobody who shops at Kmart has enough remaining self esteem to give a shiat, call it the "wide load" department, complete with black and yellow striped walkways and spinning amber lights.   They will probably own it loud and proud like rednecks do.
 
2017-09-13 05:07:54 PM  
I can't believe that Kmart is spending any money on marketing given their inevitable death.

That being said, I actually still get basic clothes at Kmart like socks and throwaway jeans and sneakers. I'm a smaller size and Walmart only seems to carry ' Fabulous-sized' everything.

/Don't have to get all dressed up like I'm going to Walmart

Hey, just a few years ago Apple was on death's door, and look how profitable it is now. At any moment, Kmart could make a brilliant marketing decision, and fwooosh! Look out Amazon!

Also, I have a parrot for sale.

Not yet. I will ride 15 miles cycling later, and then one hour of leg work in the gym. Thanks for asking.

Frankly I prefer the shame when I get fat. Reminds me that I'm wasting money on XXXL because I'm a disgusting fatass.

I've been told they have reasonably made, fashionable yet well-priced menswear.

Fashion is one of the best goddamned reasons to stay fit. I let myself go a bit after back problems started. I'm back on the right track though, because I miss fashion.

If you have enough time to drive from one Kmart to the next, you must be rich enough not to shop at Kmart.

Plus every single K-Mart, regardless of location... has the same smell. I can't describe it, but if you've ever set foot in a KMart you know the smell.
