  • Now a days it seems like a size 10 is the new plus size. I went into Wal-Mart the other day and went looking for a size 10 in the women's area and had to be told by the sales associate that they were now in the plus size area. So I go over there and all my clothing is there, my pant size, my shirt size, even my dress size. I was so upset! Like a Large in the "normal" women's section is a small on me(weird) I'm only 20lbs overweight and I have to shop in the plus size section, that is crazy! Whats even funnier is that my size seems to ALWAYS be out, that should tell them that thats the NORMAL AVERAGE size of a woman. Only a selected few are unhealthy skinny, and I wish they would stop making clothes 3 sizes too small! LOL My husband told me if I ever become bones he'll leave me! So goes to show skinnier is not the winner!
