If your man got you clothes that were too small...

Would you think it was sweet? As if he thought you were that size and take it as a compliment of him thinking that you were smaller than you actually are? Or would you take it as an insult like he's telling you you need to lose weight?

  • Men usually don't put that much thought into something to get you a smaller size to tell you you need to lose weight....

    Reminds me of a story.... my sister is 4'11" and when she married her ex husband weighed about 105 lbs. He got her a XXL night shirt. lol. He liked the picture on it and didn't look at the size. perfect example of "men just don't think".

  • My husband did that when we were going out. He got me a really cute turtle neck sweater. I just laughed and told him that maybe someday my boobs will shrink so I can get it over my chest.

  • I would just take it that he didn't know my size and that I needed to exchange the clothes for what I need. I don't think there would be an maliciousness, just him not knowing.

  • I'd have to know the guy personally but most guys aren't passive aggressive like women can be. I'd say he thought you were smaller than you are. That would be a compliment in my book.

    Words I love to hear are, "You're a size 2 right?", lol.

  • I wouldn't take it either way. I wouldn't expect my husband to have any clue what size I am. Who knows what he'd end up coming back with. Half the time I have no clue what size I am myself.

  • Yeah, I don't think it's either. My Hubby doesn't get me clothes b/c he knows he has no idea what size and usually I don't either. I'd just take them back and get the right size

  • I'd take it as a compliment but inside i'd be thinking "Yea he's telling me I need to lose weight."
    I would probally have war in my mind over it and end up trying to lose weight.

  • I would be SOOOOO FLATTERED! My husband picks up size small off of the racks and says "Oooh I really like this one!" When I tell him it wont fit his jaw practically hits the ground. I think he truly sees me smaller than I am which does not bother me in the least!!!
