This is When Tumblr Went Nuclear on the Bullsh*t That Is Women’s Clothing Sizes

Most women could rant for days about how hard it is to buy clothes without trying them on. Sizing is all over the place, and in a world where being an “average” size should mean being able to confidently choose a tag that says “Medium,” nothing could be further from the truth.

Most women’s clothes are sized extremely small. I am a woman of average height (5’7) with a below-average bust who wears, at most places, a size 8 or 10.

I have to buy extra large shirts most places I go. Seriously.

Which is why I, and all women, adore this Tumblr thread for calling out the whole sh*tshow for exactly what it is – utter nonsense invented to make us feel bad about our bodies so we keep buying diet products.

And not only that, but there’s a very good reason that people on television and in magazines look like a million bucks no matter what they’re wearing.

The moment of realization began when a plus-sized girl won a fashion consultation with What Not To Wear’s Clinton Kelly.

She first wanted to know how celebs make every outfit look perfect on their bodies.

Answer: tailoring.

Image Credit: Imgur

Like, if you have money you can just…ignore the size. That’s a thing!

Image Credit: Imgur

And we’re all shocked that they’re altering EVERYTHING, right?

Not just dresses and formal clothes?

Image Credit: Imgur

I kind of am…

Image Credit: Imgur

Don’t do this to yourself, friends.

Know that off-the-rack clothes aren’t designed to fit ANY body perfectly, they’re designed to fit all bodies, sort of.

Image Credit: Imgur

Nothing is wrong with you; they’re just shitty clothes.

Image Credit: Imgur

There are so many things they should be teaching you in school but they’re not.

Image Credit: Imgur

These are the kinds of things the internet should be used for, y’all. For good.

Did any of this come as a surprise to you? Whether it did or didn’t, share with a girlfriend who could use the boost today!

The internet will always have an abundance of at least three things:

Don’t Wanna Risk the Bars During Rona? Try Bar in a Jar!

Can’t make it out to the bars right now? Or feel like maybe it’s a bad idea? That’s probably wise. Fortunately, keeping it to a night in doesn’t mean you have to give up all the fun of the bar experience.

In fact, you can customize and retain a lot of it for way less money than you’d likely spend on a night on the town. One idea that’s been getting a lot of traction for the at-home party / gift idea is the “Bar in a Jar” – basically just a customized collection of drinks festively set in one container for your sipping pleasure!

It’s an easy idea that truly is the complete package. Check out some of these examples that might provide inspiration for your bar in a jar project!

Life’s a Beach

This beach themed container was posted a while back by Instagram account boozekays, which specialized in creating personalized alcoholic arrangements. You can see here how adding just a few simple, inexpensive materials to the display really creates a sense of theme and fun.

The Open Bar

This gift idea comes via the decorating blog Shabby Creek Cottage. They’ve got an entire rundown on how to easily make your own – starting with some simple supplies:

• A large jar with lid (big enough to hold several small bottles)
• 5-7 small bottles of alcohol
• Adhesive Vinyl
• Transfer Tape
• Silhouette Machine + tools

You can see the rest of the instructions here.

Neon Lights

This specialty lid decoration is available from KylerDesigns on etsy for just 8 bucks. Download and print out instantly!

Mason Jar Cocktail Gifts

The website msrachelhollis.com has another guide on a slightly different style of bar jar that’s perfect for gifts of all kinds!

So, if you wanna get to having/spreading some fun but not exactly, yanno, out in the world, turn your boredom into creativity with a bar in a jar! Now if only we could figure out how to fit a steakhouse into one of these things…

Have you tried something like this? How did it turn out?

I love getting into my bed at night to read before I fall asleep, I love mid-day naps on the weekend on the couch.

Funny Memes About Being Single

If you’re single, you know it has its pros and cons.

First, the pros: no one tells you what to do, you don’t have to answer to anyone ever, and you can eat pizza every single night if you want to.

Now, the cons: soul-crushing depression and loneliness, no sense of accomplishment, and you don’t get to split half of the bills with someone.

It’s a real toss-up, huh? I know where I stand…

Tweets That Might Prove Ladies Are the Funniest

We do a lot of Twitter articles in these parts, but this one is by ladies and for ladies. I mean, I’m not a lady. But I didn’t write any of these tweets. So think of me more as a tour guide to point out the works of art that are these posts, and let’s appreciate them together. Feel free to touch, though, since you’ll probably need to in order to scroll through.

Here are 10 quite good very great tweets especially for women.

10. Seize the moment

(OK real talk from a guy, this is the quickest possible way to start some trust issues.)

9. Coco nuts

Why the hell would he ask that? What’s wrong with him?

8. A matter of perspective

Hey, this is all of us. And if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that nobody looks good in the video chat.

7. Higher ground

See, if I did this, the whole thing would come crashing down and I’d get banned from the grocery store. Again.

6. Stretch and flex

So it’s basically like an involuntary yoga thing.

5. Color commentary

The real question is: do they all still fit?

4. How low can you go

Looking like you don’t care takes a lot of effort.

3. Pocket monsters

When will the fashion revolution finally be at hand?

2. Dry wit

OK, this phenomenon I genuinely don’t understand. Who the hell DOESN’T like showers?

1. 50 shades

Fun fact: generally speaking, women tend to actually, physically be able to perceive more colors than men.

This concludes our tour of the gallery. Please feel free to take any of the artwork with you if you’d like. We’re a very chill museum.

If You’re Single, These Funny Posts Should Look Familiar

Being single can be pretty lonely and sad on occasion, but look at it this way: think about all the poor folks who shacked up RIGHT BEFORE the worldwide lockdown and who now can’t stand each other and think they made the biggest mistake of their lives.

I’m doing just fine by myself on my couch, thank you very much…

Oh, also, I spend a big chunk of my free time crying on that couch…

Are you ready to laugh at some hilarious posts about being single?

Let’s get started!

1. The good stuff!

All you can eat!

2. Those days are over.

And they’re never coming back!

3. Yeah, pretty much.

It’s a sad state of affairs out there…

4. Yes! I love it!

Use all the pillows you need, buddy.

5. Time to run away!

It was fun while it lasted, though.

Photo Credit: someecards

6. Pure and simple.

With no distractions.

7. This is actually brilliant.

Get this guy a job!

8. Need someone around to feel safe.

But then you get over it…

9. There you go.

Time to take care of #1.

10. Yeah, it’s pretty bad.

Just focus on yourself for now! You’ll be fine!

11. Sounds like quite a day.

Treat yourself!

I guess being single can be kind of a mixed bag. A lot of ups and downs…kind of sounds like being in a relationship…

What do you think? Is it good or bad?

Do you prefer to be single or to be paired up with someone?

Talk to us in the comments, we look forward to hearing from you.

Women Who Dated Older Guys as Teens Talk About Their Experiences

We’re at a point where society is coming to grips with some uncomfortable truths, especially when it comes to predatory men and not allowing their behavior to continue on unexcused or unacknowledged. It’s important that these things no longer be kept in darkness, even though it’s not a lot of fun to dredge up.

One such conversation took place on r/AskReddit when user pizzaroll94 posed this question:

Women who “dated” older men as teenagers that now realize they were predators, what’s your story? from AskReddit

Sadly, this is an all-too-common tale, and well over ten thousand comments quickly filled the thread.

Here are just a few of the tales of red flags and other behavior that needs brought to light.

1. So many young women find themselves in way over their heads.

I was 15 and definitely didn’t understand A THING about love or danger, I found out that he was married and had a child because he literally disappeared and I was trying to find out what happened.

– chickenwing-coffee

2. Some got out before major damage was done.

I’ll put it my experience in here while I’m at it. I was 14, he was 21 and I thought it was cool that he had a car and could buy alcohol.

Luckily I didn’t interact with this person for more than a few months.

– pizzaroll94

3. Things that are clear in retrospect aren’t always evident in the moment.

I was 15 with a 21 year old. He hung around youth group and made all us younger girls feel special with his attention. I was shy and quiet, didn’t stand out much, but obviously wanted the special attention that all the prettier, peppier girls got. He wasn’t interested until he found out my mom worked nights and I was home alone.

We ended up getting into a pretty heated argument and split when, two weeks in, I still hadn’t let him come over because I was terrified of what my mom would do if she knew I’d had ANYONE over while she was gone.

– NurseNotJoy

4. “Eventually I realized it was strange.”

I was 11 and he was 23.

We didn’t date (he had a girlfriend) but he would sext me and send me nudes. Eventually I realized it was strange and blocked him.

Didn’t tell anyone about it. I sometimes wonder if it’s impacted me more than I would care to admit.

– goldenphoenix16

5. When you’re young enough, it’s hard to know how or why you’re being manipulated.

My mother found older boys to introduce me to when I was 15/16. She would take me to coffee shops or sneak me into bars and charm her way with men in their 20s only to introduce them to me. I would date them, and she would get chores done around the house that she needed. Painted kitchen, fixed cabinets, roof work, stuff like that. I remember my best friends mom trying to warn me and explain to me why it was wrong of my mother to let her 15 year old date 25 year olds, but I just thought I was really cool.

It wasnt until one of them found me online and reached out a few years ago, that I realized what she’d actually been doing all that time.

And of course, none of these guys knew what the fuck they were doing so the house looked like shit anyways.

– operachick209

6. There are too many tales like this coming out of schools.

He was my guidance counselor.

I didn’t realize how creepy he was until he proposed.

The whole thing was fucked.

– z0mbiegrl

7. It’s always heartwarming to know that good parents are out there.

My first boyfriend- I was barely 15, he was 21. Worked in a local shop and all the girls at my school liked him so came as a bit of a surprise when the biggest dork ever (me) somehow landed him and not any of the popular girls.

We dated for maybe 4 months, turned out he was sleeping with 3 girls in my year which I found confusing because I’d begged him to take my virginity to no avail. Always found that really weird and insulting that he never even wanted to sleep with me.

Plot twist: my mum had stormed into the shop when we first started dating and told him, ‘if you take my daughter’s virginity, I will kill you with my bare hands.’

God bless my mum.

– bbbccccddddd

8. If you don’t know you’re dating someone too young…why?

I was 14 and dated a 25 year old cop. He never asked my age and I never told.

One day were chatting on phone and I told him that I got some homework to do and I’ll call back later. He said freshmen year of college getting to ya huh? I said, college? I’m in high school. Dead silence, then he asked how old I was and I said 14.

He freaked out and was saying I’m gonna go to jail for this and I’m gonna lose my job. He said I can’t see you again and please don’t tell anyone. I said yeah of course.

I got why he was scared and I never saw him again and never told.

– geri73

9. “You’re mature for your age” doesn’t discount your age.

I was 15 and met a 30 year old who was an older brother of a boy I met in group therapy. He used to tell me how complicated and mature I was (lol so cliché).

I’m now 24 and seeing or interacting with anyone who is 15 makes me sick. I felt so old then but it’s insane now how obvious to me that people that age are children.

– Nini423

10. It’s a wonder some of these guys aren’t in prison.

I dated/had sex with a 28 year old when I was 13 and thought it was perfectly normal. He always complimented me, bought me stuff, and drove me places when I needed a ride. Looking back now I can’t believe I didn’t realize how fucked up that was.

To this day he can’t find someone to date that’s his age (I’m 24 now) from what I heard from rumors.

– katdunks

11. “When I was finally old enough to date him, I no longer wanted to.”

It honestly never clicked for me until I was MUCH older myself. I just thought I was super mature and that’s why it wasn’t weird that I was 14 with a 19 year old boyfriend. It was a super toxic relationship, he cheated on me, stole from me, lied to me and lied about me so much.

He pretty much only came around when he wanted sex and would tell me whatever he thought I needed to hear to keep stringing me along. In my naïveté, I thought this was just how “grownup” relationships were.

So I stayed, until I finally got fed up at 18 years old! Isn’t it funny that when I was finally old enough to date him, I no longer wanted to???

– RAVENMADSAINTSFAN

12. It’s amazing how far perspectives can shift.

My best friend in high school dated a teacher and the school found out somehow.

I don’t know if she is thinks of it like this though.

I for sure do.

– jennybgenius16

13. For some, it’s about power and intimidation.

I dated an older woman when I was a teen. She was in her mid 20’s, I was still a minor. When we broke up, she told me she’d been stopping her friends from coming after me, but now she wasn’t going to stop them anymore.

She proceeded to make my life hell, and even faked her own death to make me look bad. She stalked me online for a while after that. I don’t know if she still is, but I can’t deny the possibility.

I don’t feel safe. Don’t know if I ever will.

– legaladult

14. Her parents must have felt awful about this.

I was 13 and my parents had a friend who was 24 that started hanging around the house a lot. I developed a big crush on him and ended up losing my virginity to him.

I thought we were in love and going to get married. My parents found out and I never saw him again.

Didn’t realize how creepy it was until I had my own kids.

– arsenicookie

15. The whole thread is pretty sobering.

As a father, the comments scare the shit out of me.

– ForeignFlash

Remember, if you see situations like this, call them out. There’s nothing open-minded about predatory behavior, it’s just toxic, and it should be stopped.

Do you have any experiences like this?

Share them in the comments if you’re comfortable.

13. For some, it’s about power and intimidation.

I dated an older woman when I was a teen. She was in her mid 20’s, I was still a minor. When we broke up, she told me she’d been stopping her friends from coming after me, but now she wasn’t going to stop them anymore.

She proceeded to make my life hell, and even faked her own death to make me look bad. She stalked me online for a while after that. I don’t know if she still is, but I can’t deny the possibility.

I don’t feel safe. Don’t know if I ever will.

14. Her parents must have felt awful about this.

I was 13 and my parents had a friend who was 24 that started hanging around the house a lot. I developed a big crush on him and ended up losing my virginity to him.

I thought we were in love and going to get married. My parents found out and I never saw him again.

Didn’t realize how creepy it was until I had my own kids.

15. The whole thread is pretty sobering.

As a father, the comments scare the shit out of me.

Remember, if you see situations like this, call them out. There’s nothing open-minded about predatory behavior, it’s just toxic, and it should be stopped.

Do you have any experiences like this?

Share them in the comments if you’re comfortable.
