I Did Not Need to Hear That

Posted by Lara at 7:37 PM
Picture this:

I'm in the dressing rooms at Nordstrom, squeezing my ass into a too-tight dress - well, attempting to squeeze into it - realizing I gained some weight over my recent vacation with family in Vegas. And from the next room over, I hear some whiny girl going, "I don't know - I think I need this in a size zero..."

To recap in pictures, here's me, in the too-tight dress:


And here's an artist's rendition of what the whiny girl might have looked like:


Size zero.

Bite me.

I have some choice words for that um, whiny girl, though I'll just start with BITE ME, too.

(Is this something you might be wearing next weekend?)

Oh you're a curvy girl! That's a GOOD thing!

I once went bathing suit shopping with a tiny size 6 with breast implants. Sigh-h-h...

I don't know anything about dress sizes (e.g., it's unclear to me why a sizing system includes the number 0; is inches or cm somehow insufficiently expressive?), but you're so ridiculously cute, including in that picture. Looks kinda hard to take big steps in that dress anyway, so who needs it? I mean, what if you suddenly had to silly walk across a room?

Yet another reason I hate shopping...

I don't want to seem TOO sympathetic to a whiner (or a size 0, which I agree - it's always seemed stupid), but I've felt whiny a few times when I find what I like, but they never order enough of "normal" sizes and you can only find them in seriously large sizes that perhaps shouldn't be made in some items of clothing.

But I've never worn a size 0. Perhaps someone should send her back to the childrens' department where she belongs.

Size zero? Jesus.

And you look smoking in that dress!

It may be a little tight, but girl you look HOT in that dress!

Oh my god, that dress is smokin' hot on you. You could just stand or lean in it, but whoa.

I was once in the Gap doing a happy dance because after MONTHS on Weight Watchers I as trying on something in a size 6 for the very first time ever. And that's when the girl in the stall next to mine whined that the 00 was too big and why didn't they make an even smaller size.
She totally harshed my buzz.

Also, you look HOT in that dress. ;-)

I love that dress! The color looks soooo good on you.

I hate it when I hear girls in dressing rooms wanting a smaller size, I'm always the girl that has to ask the saleswoman for a larger size.

Then they giggle and sneer. Bitches.
