Clothes sizes!

Last week I bought a skirt from a major UK retailer whose speciality is clothes for obese women like me. I was in hurry to catch a bus, so couldn't try it on, but chose the size that I am currently wearing more than 20 other skirts and trousers in.

It was 12 inches too big on the waist! And I don't think it was mislabelling (as I know sometimes happens having worked in a clothing factory and warehouse during the vacations as a student). Because on the hips it fitted fine. I suspect they made the pattern to fit a very slim girl with very little difference btween hip and waist, and just added inches... my gripe is that these people's business is making clothes for the obese...
