The Size Issue







It's difficult to make people (who don't follow me on Polyvore) believe that I genuinely do have nice taste, when I'm back wearing the same clothes for the third Summer in a row. It's a issue. Case in point: these pants. I really want to get rid of them, but I have nothing to replace them, so I'm at a loss. Adulthood hasn't been easy for me, nor has it been financially fruitful. After replacing pieces that were long past their expiration date in December, I vowed to give up fast fashion as much as possible, and to actually invest in quality, timeless pieces. However, this means that my wardrobe is currently severely out of date, and I don't know when it'll be updated. In the meantime, I've been looking for websites with the best selection and prices, but I've run into an issue with that as well. Multiple times now I've found a company that I'm really into, and the pieces are fantastic, but when I look at the sizes, a medium is the largest they go. This makes no sense. Just because someone wears a larger size, doesn't mean they've just given up on fashion. I really do admire the fashion industry so much, but when size becomes an issue, I want to scream. 

So I'm really trying to find quality clothing in a size larger than a medium. This is not hate against anyone who wears a medium or smaller, this is simply a plea for a larger variety. Come on clothing industry. Get with it.

  1. I can totally relate to holding on to items and wearing them time and time again - especially when it comes to loungewear! Great message in this post by the way Amber, it's so surprising that a larger variety of sizes hasn't yet been brought into action by many brands. Have a lovely week! :)

  2. I'm with you, I have one pair of trousers that I refuse to let go of. I also have hordes of clothes and shoes, that i've bought 'for the sake of it'. I agree investing in fashion and I think it's important to that, that's what i'm striving to do, instead of buying for the sake of it. It's a shame that brands limit there items to certain sizes, a real shame!

  4. Great message in this post. I totally agree with you in trying to get more quality over quantity. It's such a shame that the fashion industry just ignore so many potential consumers. I really don't like that about fashion, it can be such a close minded industry sometimes.
    Anyway you look great in this blue trousers.
