A friend was looking for a Halloween costume for her dd. She found an outfit on an American website.

At the very bottom it says and I quote...

"if the girl is a little fat, please use a larger size"

shock

Not sure if my link has worked!

Yanbu but it looks like the site has been translated from a different language into English. Perhaps a translation issue?

That's not an American website. It's a Chinese one. Hence the bad / literal translation.

At least it didn't say 'Don't fool yourself, if your kid's a porker, get a size bigger.'
