I was disgusted how the hell would anyone fit into a size 4 let whatever is XXXsmall unless you were anorexic. What is this world comming to. I never even knew a size 4 existed.
I think that it's good that they are stocking smaller sizes because I've seen my very good friend get frustrated with clothes shopping. She is very petite weighs 41kgs and size 6 clothing is too big on her. She has had to buy a lot of her clothing in children's sizes and she finds it demeaning and feels less of a woman because of it or has had to get clothes altered or made.
I think it's just like clothing stores not stocking sizes larger than an 18 and making anyone over a size 18 wear hideous clothing which makes that person feel even worse than they might already feel.
In my opinion it's good that they are now catering for the smaller end of the spectrum, as they do for the larger end. My friend is constantly being given dirty looks by bigger women because she is so petite and I've seen it destroy her. I keep enforcing that they are jealous. No one should judge anyone as anorexic without knowing the facts.
I don't think these shops stocking smaller sizes are promoting anorexia. Anorexia is a mental disease, it's not adopted by sufferers to try and get down to a size whatever, they are trying to make themselves virtually disappear because at whatever size they are they are still fat in there mind.
