Getting Bent Out Of Shape

, , , , | Right | October 29, 2018

(I worked at a store that caters to both regular and plus-sized women. I am naturally petite and fairly thin, and at that point still new, so I don’t know everything about certain garments. A large woman asks me for help picking out shapewear.)

Woman: *looking at two drastically different types of shapewear* “Which of these will work better for me?”

Me: “Well, it depends on what you need them for. This one is good for smoothing you out under your dress, while this one is good for supporting your thighs.”

Woman: “Yes, but which would you wear? I need it for a wedding.”

Me: “Well, I can’t personally vouch for them, since I’ve never worn those types, but it really depends on the dress you’re wearing and what you consider your problem areas. Like, with some clingy dresses, I have to wear shapewear to suck in my stomach.”

Woman: “Oh, what do you know? You’re just a skinny mini!” *flounces away*

Me: “But… then why did you ask me?”
