I'm sure most of you have noticed that ... it's been a long, dark, COLD winter. We keep the house at 70 and even that seems pretty cold most days. So, a few weeks back, I decided to break out the thermal underwear . . .
. . . only to discover that I had left most of it at our summer cottage. (It gets mighty cold there in April and in October.)
So, off I went to K-Mart and bought some Joe Boxer women's ANKLE LENGTH thermal pants.
The problem is, they don't reach my ankles. They only reach mid-calf.
Sadly, I don't fit their typical body size. I happen to have long legs, which means I can't buy pants in the regular women's section, unless I want to look like a doofus. I have to buy "tall" items from a catalog. And my favorite catalog is soon to be no more. My mother told me that Penney's is going to discontinue their catalog.
My first thought was: where will I get pants???
I have a feeling I'll be trolling the Internet for pants and hoping when I get them that they actually fit.
How about you--is there something you can't wear because your body doesn't fit some manufacturer's norm?
