Anyone ever wonder why larger women's clothes are referred to as "plus sizes", like they're trying to be subtle about it, while larger men's clothes are called "big men's" which throws it right out there?
Why is that?

I didn't realize there was a designated name for "big men's clothes".
I think things like that tend to get sugarcoated for women since they tend to be more insecure about their bodies. Pick up a magazine that gives fashion tips for girls. The terms "curvy", "curvy all over", and "curvy tummy" are the first to come to mind for me--they all mean the same thing: "plus size". Then you get "full" or "athletic" legs, as opposed to "thin" legs, because not having thin legs apparently makes them athletic by default. Same thing with arms.
There are so many adjectives used when describing women's bodies and fashion that I have no idea where I fall. Trying to figure it out is like trying to decode a hidden message sometimes.
Wow, I went off on a tangent. . .3
