Just a Rant  
Sometimes I like to rant about things because it's soooo frustrating.

* More than two-thirds (68.8 percent) of adults are considered to be overweight or obese. More than one-third (35.7 percent) of adults are considered to be obese. More than 1 in 20 (6.3 percent) have extreme obesity.

* Most clothing does not come smaller than a small... and I am an extra small... sometimes, depending on the brand, an extra, extra small.

* The sad thing is that I am not an extra small person. I am a normal, healthy, average-height woman with an hourglass figure. Why should I have to be considered "extra, extra small" when everyone else is just extra, extra big? In the last ten years, the average weight for women has increased 11 pounds in America and in the last 50 years, the average waist size has DOUBLED. The average waist size in 1950 used to be the same waist size as me. That means there were many women who were smaller than me in order for my size to be the average.

* I know many women who are just as tiny as me and we are forced to shop in the juniors section and we miss out on all the beautiful clothing made for women our age because they don't make fashionable, adult clothing to fit our measurements.

* I have ranted about this before and I'm sorry for doing it again... I'm just frustrated that on days like today... Cyber Monday... when I could be buying gorgeous coats that are regularly $300 for only $3o right now on certain websites... but the smallest size they carry is "small" which, in my opinion, is NOT EVEN small. I would kill for a 36 inch bust. (Not literally, but you catch my drift.) 36 inches is several inches bigger than I am so how can that be small? I would be swimming in that, it would not hug my curves, and would make me look like a freaking stick in a marshmallow.

I go on Pinterest and I see all these super cute outfits but I can't seem to find them in the store when I go shopping....


Who are these people and where do they shop!?
