I. Joe, Channing Tatum, David Beckham... the male models that stand next to the same, unrealistic looking female models) but still, people love it.... so let them.

nobody is being forced to wear a size 000. the pressure to look a certain way is really all internal when you look at it. i mean, yes, the images are constantly shoved down our throats... but there's a solution. ignore it, turn your tv off, learn to love yourself and move on.

Well said!

I can wear a 00, I didn't even know they made that size until about a year ago, but it felt so wrong. I felt like 12 yr old boys should be wearing them. I'll keep with my 0's and make a new hole in my belt.

We have to wear and do what makes us feel comfortable.

Re: J. Crew Faces Backlash Over New Size 000

I have trouble finding clothes that aren't painful in the crotch area.

I buy the, "tall sizes," and have to roll them up.

The do not, however, make shorts and capris in tall sizes. What's up with that?

My MIL is Japanese and at 4'11" she has to take everything in, even the crap that stores bend over backwards to tell her is for her specific size.
What does, "MIL," mean?
