Asian size

10/5/10

When shopping for workout clothes last week, I couldn't help but feel self-conscious because I kept having to grab things two sizes up than my usual size to try on. I've been working out more, not eating out more! I even asked Jeff if he thought I was gaining weight and wondered if perhaps it was time to lay off the cookies. 

Defeated, I went home with my new workout gear. But then I ripped the price tags off and I saw the tag read "ASIAN SIZE." Suddenly my self-esteem was restored! It wasn't me that was getting big, it was the clothes that were small!

  1. Asian size can fully kill you. Throw in boobs or a butt and you are officially too large to live, apparently.

    I say this as an American size XL (if it's a stretchy top) or 2X who feels pathetically grateful when GAP here has a single XL tank. I do a lot of online shopping.

  2. LOL! Yeah I brought an Armageddon-ready supply of bras and underwear because I knew I wouldn't find any that fit. So glad I did!

  3. I completely know what you mean! Sizes are such silly things, really-- I wish I wasn't such a slave to them.

    Thank you for your sweet comment, btw!

  5. Hahaha. Yes, you definitely have to look out for that. Asians are generally smaller in size. I guess this "Asian Size" thingy exist because it'll be funny and in a way offensive if people made cloths that were XXXXL or XXXXS.

  10. My mum and her colleague were once shopping for nighties, and couldn't fit into anything they had at the store because it seemed to be for anorexics only. The salesgirl helpfully explained, "They're Asian size."

    My mum then stared down at her and said, "We ARE Asian."

    I don't know who was more mortified, the salesgirl or my mum and her colleague!

  11. Do they have "Fat Ass American" sizes or are those kept in the back?
