  1. as a short and moderately underweight person from a country with a shorter average height i feel the same struggle

    shopping in america is extremely difficult because i just cant find anything that fits that isnt in the kids section, here they’ve started to make clothes for the average white american who is often 165cm+ and clothes for fat people due to fat acceptance propaganda… unfortunately they leave us behind by forgetting that many who come to america come from not so fortunate backgrounds and are small, short, or underweight due to poverty and malnutrition

  2. Bravo! Inclusion is when all of us feel seen and valued regardless of size. I am an adult woman that can not find clothes to fit me. I am 4.8 and weight 95 pounds so x-small sometimes is too large (many times because the fashion business mislabel clothes to impact women self esteem). The struggle to look like a grown-up, put together person is real.

    BTW. I was not malnourished, I am just not tall. My mother is not tall, my dad is not tall. Genetics.
