How "One Size Fits All" REALLY Looks on Different Body Shapes

Kat Collings

Buzzfeed may be largely known for strangely addictive quizzes, but yesterday the site came out with a fascinating investigative story on how real women of different sizes fit into “one size fits most” clothing. Amid the growing plus-size media attention (Vogue’s recent plus-size lingerie shoot and the Calvin Klein model controversy come to mind) the photos and observations from the five women who tried the “one size fits most” clothing feel especially poignant. The ultimate conclusion is an important one, if unsurprising: “one size fits most” is a complete myth with negative implications for many women’s body image and self-esteem.

Scroll down to see a selection of the photos and commentary, and head over to Buzzfeed to see the complete story.
