This choice of sizing makes one think about sizing in general. There is already controversy surrounding the term “plus size” and what is actually plus size. In Japan, descriptors such as LA for Large Athletic, SS for extra small and LL for extra large are the norm. We’re guessing those in Japan are not surprised at the size names used by Fatyo. But it does beg the question… is someone a size 2X really Jumbo? What ramifications would this have on someone’s self-esteem or self body acceptance?
From the uproar it has caused thus far, we’re sure we are not the only ones asking these questions.
What do you think of this way of sizing? Do you think it’s another type of body shaming? Or is it another way of showing body acceptance? Please leave us a comment below and let us know what you think about this way of sizing.
