I don't get it either I remember walking into target one time and heading for the women's section and then wondering why everything was too big for me
It just means that I have to shop in juniors, which my body is not shaped for anymore (ahem....hips!) because thats the section that carries my size. Consequently nothing fits me right. Thank God for Gap!

i think it's an American thing becuase i read in Newsweek that America has the highest percentage of overweight people, so thus i think that's probably why other countries don't have it. they dont have to battle with extremely busy lifestyles, food on the go, fast food, snacking, not enough time to exercise, etc etc.

What bothers me is that they've done this with shoes now

All the cute shoes are in now "juniors" so once you're over 18 I guess you're supposed to wear practical shoes

Heeeell, no. I cant speak for the rest of the world, but here we all swan around lazing about eating grapes. Even professionals are hand-fed them by their toga-clad secretaries while they consume a leisurely bottle of red. We also dont have watch market here. No need.
