Open Letter: Dear Clothing Companies

Clothing should be soft. Comfortable. Something you want to live in. News flash: Scratchy tags do not fall into this category. I understand you want to draw my attention to the fact that my shirt is made in China, as well as being “fabrique en Chine” in addition to being “hecho en China” but once I’m aware of that fact, I don’t really need to be reminded. Every second. So please understand that I will probably want to remove said scratchy tag. Therefore, when you attach scratchy tags, could you NOT sew the tag into a critical part of the seam so that removing the tag causes the entire shirt to fall apart? Hmm? Pretty please? Too much to ask??!!

    I’d like to write a letter to clothing companies about plus size clothing. Just because my body is bigger than average, does not mean that my head and neck are gigantic as well! I swear, every plus size shirt I put on has this HUGE head hole. I could fit my waist in some of these head holes! My head is normal sized thank you very much.

    You know, I’d love to see WHO they’ve designed some of the clothing around. I had a shirt that I’ve since thrown out now and totally given up on. It was a really cool looking empire waist shirt… but the empire waist was too high… I guess a real empire waist is supposed to still go under your boobs. But, the person who has boobs this high must have them around their neck!! No amount of bra support could EVER get them up high enough to stay above that waistline. Anyway, if there’s a person with neck-boobs that gets clothes from the goodwill, they just scored a super cool shirt!

    Personal record here in Italy: a 5.9 inches label on the new coat of my 18mo boy…
