Ok, first of all, Korea is one of the thinnest countries, or at least, healthiest countries in the world, with one of the lowest recorded obesity rates in the world, alongside most other parts of East Asia; Japan, China, etc. So ergo, they do have different standards. I guess I should've expected that. They also have nitpickier standards when it comes to who is fat vs who is not, as in, they are very critical, which is why their idols are lighter than their American counterparts, blah blah blah, to say there's not a certain glorification of thinness would be outright lying, of course, that's unfortunate for a Westerner who comes to Korea, Japan, etc, or at least, a rather heavyset Westerner.
Now, I wouldn't call myself heavy, I don't think myself thin either, for someone who's like, 5'7" to 5'8" and 110 I still thnk most of my weight is fat based since i've gotten out of shape, but even I have skepticism that I can fit in teeny Korean "one size" clothing. Appearantly in Korea it's difficult to even find a bra to fit breasts above a C or D cup, or if you can trust word from Martina from EYK.
Another "apparently", most shops don't let you "try on" these one size articles while shopping in Korea physically, which is what really piqued my NOPE meter here.
I'm not sure what online stores would do in the case that a clothing article did not fit, and the lot of the k-fashion sites I've gone to are free sized based, and give little information aside from the length of tops or shirts, no mention of the bust, waist, hip size or anything. I don't know. As a 34C, maybe a 36B, somewhere stranded in between.... 25 inch waist, big by azn standards (ridiculous standards), and around a 34 inch hips I just don't see the point in it. I love the cuteness of Asian clothing, I love the style, but I want something that'd at least fit me properly if I were going to order it, I don't want to risk ending up with tiny freesize items that'll be able to fit around my calf muscle and not the rest of me. But all the same, I want a few cute Asian fashion items....
ghhh, as the Koreans would say... 아이고
