Being from the far east, I find it particularly difficult to find clothes that will fit. I'm so petite that I'm often forced to shop for my clothes in the teen section of most American clothing stores. I had no idea that the average western woman was so much larger than those in the east. Most of what we learn about American culture is from television, so we assume that most are tall and thin just like the models on the big screen. After living in the United States for a few years, I've realized that what we've seen on television is actually just a small part of the female population.
My first shopping experience was difficult to say the least. I couldn't believe how limited and small the petite section in most department stores was in comparison to plus size fashion. With each passing year, the plus size department seems to grow larger and larger, making me wonder if it will completely take over some day. It is nice that finding plus size clothing is not that difficult. Many have turned to online shopping to enjoy a better selection of fine quality clothes that fit well into one's budget.
