So, not so much the clothes themselves (though I have had more than one fight with shirts over the years), but the prices of clothes. I just can't stand to spend much on clothing because generally, I'm not that pleased with how most items fit me. My sewing/tailoring skills are not to the point that I can fix most of those issues.

I'm a fat chick, which I am actually okay with most days, but I'm kind of odd shaped even for a fat chick, apparently. I'm a little too tall altogether, but a little too short in the torso (I think, fuck, I don't know). I'm also either entirely too small in the breasts, or too fucking large beyond belief (more former than latter).

I've actually had attendants in plus size shops openly critique my body because it doesn't fit inline with what they expect their customers to have.

It bothers me, but I tend to move on after a few moments of fuming. Really, there isn't much I can do outside of making my own clothes, which, yes, okay, I could become capable of if I would put the effort in, but I'm a lazy bitch and don't want to.

I also don't want to spend $40 for a fucking shirt that is going to fall apart in the wash after 6 months. Or $50 on a pair of jeans that I'm just going to destroy with my fat thighs because the denim can't hold up to the constant chafing. (I'm always surprised by which brands actually last verses those that don't. I have a pair of jeans that I've had for years and the only reason I don't wear them more now is because the button was ripped out in an ocean accident--don't ask. But I have another pair that I bought six months ago that are already holed up on the inner thighs.)

And I especially don't want to pay that much if they aren't particularly flattering to my body. Or to my personal aesthetic. I mean really, who fucking figured it was better to shove every fat chick in the world in ugly-ass flower/animal prints that are not meant to see the light of day, let alone *blouses*??

But the travesty of it all is underwear. I just want a pair of panties that don't make me feel like I'm a grandmother in an assisted living situation (I'm not insulting the granny-panty. I love anything that covers my ass completely. I just want them to be *pretty*). I'm 24. Is it really so much to ask that I be able to find decently attractive underwear that doesn't cost me $10 a pop?
