Do you live in the US? Let's trade places for a while! In Holland your size is no problem at all. My size is 27''/30'', which is pretty hard to find, unless you want to pay 120 euro for a pair of jeans!

Yes, I live in the US. 27/30 would be approx. a Size 4 Short. The stores I usually shop always carry the "short" sizes but never the "tall" or "long" ones that I need.

Hey it's 8:42pm, American Idol, and I just saw a Lane Bryant ad with that woman in her bra. It wasn't the ad in this thread but she was flaunting her curves.

The clothes are made to a certain standard, not with an individual model in mind, so they need to be within a certain size range to do the job or they won't fit the clothes and can't model them. It is about the clothes and the branding, not the model or making some statement about size or body image.
When designers are too lazy or too untalented or too horrified by the thought of someone over a size 2 wearing their precious creations that they can't be bothered to make clothes that actually fit someone thicker than a toothpick, they ARE promoting a certain body type. And this crap does affect ordinary women. Trends in high fashion eventually hit middle America. I think I have a pretty healthy body image but after spending a whole freaking afternoon trying on every single pair of beige slacks in the local department store because I need a new pair for spring and not being able to find anything that could fit over my hips without gaping at the waist I was actually beginning to wonder what was wrong with me. Thank God for consignment shops. I was finally able to get a pair of pants from a couple seasons ago that actually fit properly.

Apart from the small minority of oversexed hetero sexual men and Anna Wintour-like walking toothpicks, most designers are jealous gay men who are so envious of our curves, which they can never have without surgery, that out of revenge they design clothing and advertisements only aliens will fit in!

Same here. I was looking for a pair of khakis and forget it. I have a smaller waist and hips than the rest but I'm not skinny. I was trying on the "curvy" fit and they still didn't fit. One size was too tight and the next size up was too big. I'm tall too so I need the long inseam, which is next to impossible to find in stores. When I shop for pants I do wonder what's wrong with me. Lee makes pants and jeans now with no gap waistbands-they're kind of tough to find in stores. That waist gap is a bane of my existence, especially in jeans. I just wear my tops over them and use a belt. I don't think I've tucked anything in since at least 1990 anyway.

Of course I'm over a size 8 which I found out on the Today Show this week is a plus size in modeling

I think that alien is a plus size too

I have a problem where the top (hips, crotch, waist) is too big if the legs fit. I guess I have thunder thighs or something but if the top fits, the legs are too tight (for my comfort, I guess they are correct for style) and if the legs fit then the top part could fit me at nine months pregnant. The store where I found the jeans sold by waist/inseam makes a "boy cut" style so I have three pairs of those. The top is fitted correctly and flattering and the thighs are also flattering without feeling like I'm wearing a unitard.

I think every woman has issues finding pants since everyone is different. I'm an average weight and size and when I find a good fitting pair I buy more than one and wear them for years. I think it's been nearly a year since I bought a pair of pants. One of my good friends is super tall and skinny and another is very short with a boyish figure (straight hips/waist) and also skinny. I don't know anyone of any size, height, or weight that can't complain all day about pants shopping.

Yep, skinny women have just as much trouble as any others finding "perfect fitting" pants. Fashion shoots and shows keep seamstresses at hand along with all those other touch-up-crew people, ready to pin, slash, tuck and trim as needed to create the appearance of a perfectly tailored fit on the spur of the moment. There's nothing magical about being a size 2 or whatever that guarantees a perfect fit right off the rack.

Definitely strange, cleavage vs violence and blood and gore. Is that one during the family hour? I don't know.

NY Daily News

Forget the dead bodies and bloody murder scenes. Dita Von Teese's "offensive" bust was deemed too controversial for an upcoming episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

The 38-year-old burlesque star was forced to "take it down a notch" when playing a teacher who moonlights as a striptease artist named Rita Von Squeeze on the CBS show.

"There was a lot of network talk about my 'offensive cleavage,'" Von Teese told TV Guide, according to London's Daily Mail.

The busty siren said she found the complaints "interesting considering how much blood and gore there is" on "CSI."

This drives me fucking crazy.
Sex, nudity, the human body are touchy subjects for TV and kids, but violence is just fine. Not that there aren't a lot of both on TV, but sexuality is almost always more controversial than violence.

People can justify watching violence to themselves so long as there's some kind of underlying good guys/bad guys angle redeeming it. If they feel like they're watching gratuitous sex, that just makes them feel dirty. Or something like that.

maybe I just an eternal optimist

but, when cleavage is involved,
I always believe there is some kind of underlying good redeeming angle to it.
