One size is a little too small. If I stand with very good posture, the shirt (a t-shirt in this case) looks quite good. But if my posture is not very good, or if I bend over for any reason, or if I am sitting down in anything like a normal fashion, then things get… a little ugly…
(Just a little. But enough to bother.)
Meanwhile, the next size up is just a little too big. It always looks okay, however I’m sitting or standing–but just okay. The too-little size was positively flattering when it looked good. The bigger size is never flattering, just never particularly bad either.
Well, I’m 29 years old and this is almost the first time I’ve ever even thought about this kind of thing when it comes to buying clothes.
What do people do?
We’re talking cheap clothes here, btw.
Do people buy the smaller one and become conscientious about their physical configuration?
Do people buy the larger one, and so settle?
I imagine there are some of both kinds of people, and probably other options I haven’t listed.
It’s late and I’m chatting.
