Size matters

Monday, August 13, 2012

On Saturday, I went to mall to eat not to shop. There is a Japanese buffet restaurant in the mall which is very nice. I haven't been there for a couple years and my DH wanted to go there since I like sushi. Anyway, we had about 45 minutes before the restaurant to open for lunch. (We got there early because I had a medical test that morning and it was done early.) To kill the time, I went to shop for clothes. I don't need any new clothes but, why not? I bought a skirt from H&M which made me happy that I could find some clothes in size 10. I tried size 10 before in that store and it was tight. I know the style could make a difference in fitting but I was happy that I found something I like and it fits snug. After that, DH & I wondered around the mall and went into BCBG Max. I know I don't have any fancy event to go but I wanted to see what kind of dress they have. As we walked in, the sales rep greeted us and told me that they have more 'sizes' in the back if I need. She basically said that the sizes they have out will not fit me. I know I'm not skinny but it hurt little...especially in front of my husband. She was really skinny and other sales associates were tall and skinny too. I checked the sizes in the store and they were size 0 or 2. Well, I would not fit any of them. I'm only size 10. I was feeling good about myself losing some wt and found a cute outfit. But after the trip to BCBG, I was bummed. They probably don't even have my size in the back. My size is too big for them to carry. I know I'm being too sensitive about the comment she made but it didn't help my mood. I made a joke out of it and went to the restaurant. I ate my lunch and came home. I was de-motivated and ate all weekend long and didn't exercise at all. Now I'm motivated to lose more wt and I will visit the same store next year and try on its dress size 2. (When my lowest wt, I wore size 4.) I will not buy it but I will take a pic. Hopefully my dream come true.

    That is beyond words. It reminds me of Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman and how the sales lady refused to service her. People like that, make me sick. No one person (no matter their size or income) are any better than anyone else.

You hold your head high. You are more valuable than a size tag in a mall store. Those young sales girls will learn, soon enough, that their thin bodies may just not remain that way as they age..get married..and have babies. Oh to be a fly on their walls, when that happens!! emoticon

    Unreal! Sometimes sales people have no idea how to actually "sell" or do their job. Everyone else is right- there could have been so many different reasons/ things/ accessories that brought you in there!!

Never give some stranger that "power" of affecting you that way! I guarantee that person probably had no clue that she said something wrong or how if affected you- AND never gave it a second thought afterwards!

You are worth more than a random salesperson's ignorant words!

    That was a bit rude... what if you were buying handbags or accessories? Don't let it get you down... know that you have come along way, and you are beautiful!

    Shame on that clerk! I would never give them the satisfaction of your business again.

Keep up the great work...you WILL get there!

    That seems rather rude for her to say... what if you were shopping for someone else?
Regardless, don't let that take away where you've gotten so far!
