I understand your point, but implying that women who are below a size 6 (US) are not “real” women is not helping this conversation. There are many women who are naturally very slim and/or petite who have just as much trouble finding adult clothing, particularly professional clothing. I may not be one of them, but I can empathize with the difficulty in finding appropriate clothing that fits me, and fits me well without the need for additional alterations.

Tall, short, slim, fat, muscular, slight, curvy, straight — we’re all “real” women.
