And to help change the topic back to places I will never shop.
Many moons ago when I was 18 I was on Songs of Praise (a UK tv program with choirs singing)
At the time I was. not. fat. a UK 16 at most (so a US 14ish) In fact I had quite a nice figure even if I do say so my self
The show was sponsored by Next and they suppled the clothing for the performance.
They gave the soprano group (my group) a Burgundy top each. Not really my thing but there uk 14 fit perfectly, looked nice on and I was happy with it. Except that they decided it was too small (it really really wasn't) and the next size up (and the last size they offered in that top) was also to "small" but rather than find something different for me in a different style or let me find my own top, they made me wear a mens shirt.
I wasn't the only one the women supplying costumes upset. At least three girls (all of us under 21) where told they had to wear tops 2 sizes bigger than they had asked for. Even though the tops looked nice and were in no way inappropriate for a church setting.
These girls were slim and the larger tops looked very smock like on them in the larger size. I was the only one made to wear a mens dress shirt though. If they had even tried to find me something in a womens top I wouldn't have minded. To add insult to injury, the shirt itself was over 3 sizes bigger than I really needed.
One girl was a lot fluffier than us and she was told she should wear something of her own. I swore I would never spend money in next again.
I honestly think they were tying to hide any suggestion of chest. At least two girls had to pin the tops to a vest so they didn't slide off their shoulders they were so much bigger than they needed.
Talk about advocating positive teen body image.
