So I have a quick question for you fellow fatshionistas. Is it my stores or yours as well, does it seem like they carry only ONE 3X of most items?
I have been to two Forever21's that carry the Plus line and Store A which is closer to my home barely has any 3X's. I've checked out the new items and there's almost always one 3X. Store B, there isn't much traffic for the Plus line so I have a better chance at finding my size BUT it's 45 minutes away.
I'm just angry because I called Store A yesterday for a Navy Blazer with the striped sleeve lining to be put on hold until closing the next day because I just got home from work and was too tired. Next day comes, and I arrive three hours after opening. Waited in line to pick up the blazer and was told they couldn't find it and was probably put back on the rack. They looked through the sale history for that day and it turned out it was sold. I'm ANGRY beyond explanation.
1) with the store because I've had items on hold at Store B and given my distance situation, they held the item for 5 days and I was able to pick it up. Store A couldn't even hold an item for 24 hours.
2) with Forever21 Plus size availability. Even Store B, as I was combing through the tops and jackets, there's ONE 3X. I don't want to hunt for my clothes constantly.
3) the manager I dealt with today. It felt like they didn't care, like "if you weren't fat and the biggest size we have, this might not have been a problem." I'm FAT, and I've accepted it- why can't you accept it and treat me like a regular paying customer?! It took me raising my voice for them to call Store B to see if they had it. Unfortunately they don't.
And the reason why I'm so desperate for this blazer is because I'm on my way to be a confident FATSHIONISTA and the cut, design and mostly PRICE
of this blazer is everything I want. I own the black one and I've worn almost every day and received a number of compliments and it's bringing me so much closer to acceptance of my body. I'm Asian and there's skinny and "Asian skinny". I've been put down by my family for not even being skinny let alone Asian skinny. But ever since I finally said "SCREW IT" and dressed the way I've always dreamed of instead of hiding myself, they've accepted it and even complimented me.
So ... sorry for the rant, but if anyone made it through, thank you for listening. It turned out to be more of a rant than a question LOL
