"... too chubby to fit into regular sizes..."
I shouldn't laugh. But I did.
HA! Now that was just cold. I think that the intention was in the right place, but the outcome was pure comedy, lol.
True and I imagine decades from now we'll think
differently about some of the ads used today.
My late wife shopped at Lane Bryant; she weighed between 260 and 300 lbs, and she referred to the store as "Porker Palace."
I didn't realize Lane Bryant had been around as long as it apparently has. Back when the sizes were 'chubettes' XD
sprucemoose: That's funny and sad at the same time.
Lane Bryant is my favorite store. I had no Idea it has been around that long. I was skin and bones as a child. If I had to walk in a store that had that poster in the window I would have skipped school every day. Times are more filtered than I thought they were after seeing this.
Sears had a section for girls called Chubbies back in the 50's and 60's. I should know because I wore them. The boy's version was Huskies and my husband and brother wore them. There never was much of a selection and is why my mother and I sewed the majority of my clothes growing up.
