Dear Ann Landers, I got a kick out of the reader who thought the "W" in women's sizes meant "Wide Butt." My letter is for every designer of women's clothing in the Western Hemisphere. I pray they will see it and pay attention.
I am 30 years old, wear size 18-20, and I have a question. Why don't designers realize that fat women have fat arms, too? When I find something I like, the sleeves are too short and too tight. The majority of the selections in my size are loud prints, as if people won't see me coming, anyway.
Thanks for letting me air my gripe in your column, Ann. Maybe someone will see it and make some changes. -- Unfit in Kansas
Dear Kansas, You have raised some valid questions, and I, too, hope the designers and dress manufacturers will pay attention.
