Does Lidl cater for the more volumptious ladies?
Why yes, they certainly do Tom. They work the check out desks and some are used to shunt the heavy bags of potatoes around when the forklift is on the fritz.

Is anyone else disturbed when they see young girls (10-13) walking round with VS bags?

Never ask there age, plausible deniability, plausible deniability

Not that I've noticed. I really had to think hard to work out why that might be disturbing. I thought the modern world nowadays accepted the sexualising of adolescents, only getting concerned when it's pre-teens .

Is it me or you that's out of touch?

It has been a while since we've had one of these threads.
The pleasingly round ladies have just missed their era.

Oh yeah. Although you did say 10-13, IIRC. But perhaps I should have said prepubescent. It's just harder to spell

I recall reading some complaints not too long ago about shops selling "sexy" bra-shaped underwear aimed at seven or eight year olds, which is what I was thinking of.

Fat people are generally lazy therefore its easier to complain and use today's crazy PC world to make you feel better than actually go out and lose some weight.

Re: Big girls need to suck it up

Ahh, this is always a thorny one. The problem is that fat women are likely never again going to be considered as attractive or desirable in Western culture as we have moved on from the old ideals of "fat = wealth" and entered a new era of medical science where we know beyond any doubt that "fat = unhealthy".

Overweight people do have a right to be able to buy clothes that fit, but there are specialist shops for that... and I think as a society we should be focussing on helping the overweight people lose that extra weight so they can be healthy and fit into normal sizes, not creating new lines of "oversizes" in high streets shops that will simply normalise it.

Re: Big girls need to suck it up

Regardless of what you like, fatties or skinnies or inbetweenies ..

Panties from victorias secret would just look crap on a big fat bum, if you could actually see them at all. The reason that big sizes tend to be 'belly button warmers' is that skimpies just wouldn't be fit for purpose.
Either the original purpose of keeping poop, sweat and pee off your outer garments, or the modern purpose of looking nice.
