    Shopping for some cooling Summer-wear I encountered the items below. Am I right to be surprised that such clothing sizes exist or am I just a body-fascist?

    A waist of 56- 60 inches apparently! A five foot waist! :eek:
    But it goes up another size to 6XL too...62-64 inches.

    Not sure I'm surprised that such sizes exit, but maybe intriguing.

    No offence intended to anyone who takes this size, but - yeah - crikey.

    It's OK. He's not making an OK symbol.

    It does? I must have passed out before the drop-down got that far.

    Are they made in China? My experience of women's clothes from china is that the sizing is exceptionally small which is why they run into the xxxxxls when selling in the west.
    Mr ork usually takes xl but when he ordered a jacket from China in xl, he couldn't get an arm into it.

    You could probably just do a fast walk and be away to get away!

    They look like they're Western manufacture. They've an 87% 'Fit: As expected' rating. I might List some and see what the price does over the weekend.

    Why are you so biggest over sizes.There are lots of clothes that size or more.....like the b.. ds in school who used to try and shame you in school...seems such attitudes are alive in adults as well.

    I know a certain town (and there are probably many others) where a wander around the town centre any day of the week will show a shocking incidence of obesity. There are more mobility scooters than I've ever seen anywhere else and they can't all be people with genuine, non-obesity-related mobility problems.

    Possibly, but I find it particularly surprising that they exist in shorts - and possibly even in leggings:eek:

    The very obese might prefer shorts.

    You must live where I do. You’re in danger of being mown down by mobility scooters. I do mind the mobility scooters whose occupants are smoking whilst attached to oxygen tanks though.
