No "husky?" America went all to hell when we stopped recognizing husky.

My size in Japan is Fat Dude On Stilts. Rusty's size isn't an option.

I'm disappointed the sizes aren't more like:

Godzilla (husky)
Baragon (short and stocky)
Viras (tall & skinny)
Irys (mom jeans)
Anguirus (kids)

I always thought husky was just what mothers called their fat kids. (Speaking as a husky sized guy.)

Fat?

Chow Yun-fat?

Jumbo is the biggest? Yeah, it should have been Godzilla.

Some women's retailer got in trouble awhile back because the color of garment in regular sizes was called dove gray but in plus sizes the same color was called manatee.

And believe me, nobody resented that more than I did.

Ummmm NO... probably exactly the opposite. I am not willing to into all my personal experience with this reality again in this thread but I have detailed here in RSP before how the culture of shaming people, especially girls, for being a little plump (by hollywood and supermodel standards) OFTEN CAUSES dieting cycles that end up causing weight gain into genuine obesity as one of the health damaging side effects that are physical on top of the psychological damage it can cause.

Starvation diets and yo-yo dieting, especially in your teens and early twenties, can cause serious body composition changes (loss of healthy muscle which later is replaced by fat) and massive metabolism changes that often cannot be reversed. Which add up to it being much easier to gain weight and harder to lose weight after each "diet" cycle is gone through.
