Really ModCloth?? Please tell me I'm wrong, if not you guys suck.

So, I always see advertisements for ModCloth. I finally decided to check it out because their clothes looked really cute. Well I found this shirt that I loved and I wanted to buy it. Now, I am a large chested girl. Most days I deal, but with certain items of clothing I really have to make sure it will fit. Now this shirt I found was one of those items. So, I clicked on the measurements and I saw that a large bust was only 16 inches. Really!?!?!? That is insane!!!!!!

So, I was just wondering if they use a different measurement system or something?, because that just infuriates me if they really believe that a large is 16 inches.

Most companies that make clothes NEVER think about large chested women. Or just the large. Every single one of the women they use as models are teeny tiny things so they make their clothes to fit THEM and not real women. It's very irritating. This is why I wish I knew how to sew!

I've never purchased anything from them so can't help you out sorry Happy

actually, the big companies do mass measurings with people who fit their target group. the measurements for the sizes are average measurements of all. that´s why there are so many differences between the sizes of several textile companies. and some have a larger size 38 than others because the aimed consuming group is a bit larger... i hope you get what i mean Happy
but to your post: it is really insane to have a 16 inch bust for a large tee, maybe it´s a typing mistake?? it should be about 19, shouldn´t it?!

Thats funny...if a petite woman isn't a real woman then what is she? lol I get what you mean though...I hate buying a large shirt and it be too tight.

Is it possible that that is the flat measurment and the actual measurement is 32? Even so that is silly- sounds like a large in kids if you ask me. 16 is so silly- I've never heard of a fully grown woman with a 16 inch bust.

ha ha just went to modcloth and they had a disclaimer that all measurements are taken flat across and must be doubled.

Well yeah that makes sense but that is still very small around the bigger boob ladies though....

32 inches is small for any sized boobed ladies! It's obnoxious is what it is.

Wow...according to modcloth, I have big boobs! haha That's funny...Seriously though I'm a size 2 and my chest is bigger than 32 inches...Was it a children's size?!

No! It was for women or teenagers or whatever! 32 is still very small by my standards. I definitely would not fit in any of their clothes.
And Abbyka I know what you mean I wish I could sew really well, too. I mean I can sew pretty good, but I want to make myself a dress, but I'm nervous about it.

Hi guys,

We apologize for the confusion. However, PinkWeeds is correct; ModCloth’s measurements are done flat across the garment, therefore you must double the number. When viewing the measurements, be sure to account for stretch in the garment as well. That will help with considering fit. Because we work with a number of small, independent designers, it leads to size variance; we do try our best to use a number of designers with different size ranges. As you can see on the site some larges are 32 inches flat across and some exceed 40 inches flat across. We include measurements for every individual garment in hopes of better assisting you in determining fit. I hope that I’ve helped answer your queries and if you ever have further questions please feel free to email me at e.llera@modcloth.com.

With Regard,
Elisa at ModCloth
