The Big and Beautiful Readers Are Eager for More Good News

August 20, 1992

I am 39 years old, 5 feet, 2 inches and wear a size 20.

Large-size clothes are not designed for the short, wide woman. It's most frustrating to see these enormous shoulder pads, button-down blouses that do not fit across the hips, the round-necked tops in miserable prints and fabrics that make me look wider and are just a bit too short. The jackets are too long and make me look like I'm wearing a tent.

Having all this weight is a particular problem I am trying to deal with. It would be so good if I could purchase some clothes that could help.
