totally okay: “this didn’t fit me [it was too small/I’m too big]”
not okay at all apparently: “this didn’t fit me [it was too big, I’m too small/despite sending measurements for custom top]”
one gets “aww that’s too bad! how dare they do that to you”
the other: “must be nice that you’re so skinny” or “that’s too bad. /eyeroll”
but hey you can’t body shame skinny people at all, not possible!
the best though: “just get a boob job, you can afford it”
