  1.  Well my daughter is 13 but very tiny and we have a awful time finding things to fit her! Even thou she can wear kids the styles are to kiddie for her age! I for one am glad there is still stores like Holister and Abercrombie that carries small sizes! If you look around we live in a world where most 13 year olds look like they are 20! My daughter is one of the rare teens that is skinny and believe me she gets just as mad going into most stores and nothing fitting her because the xs are still way to big! I for one hope they keep the sizes small what is it hurting to have 2 stores out of a million that cater to the smaller teens!


  2. Hollister clothing is very popular among young people.  It is not suitable for those who are fat and have extra weight. Hollister clothing is more aimed at slim youth, so if you have extra weight on you, you should try elsewhere. Hollister chain only stocks sizes 0 to 9, though they do carry small, medium, large, and extra large.


  3. As a 15 year old girl who's bought clothes from pretty much every teen store in the last 5 years:


    aeropostale is the store to go to for preteens and younger teens that are in between little girl sizes and juniors. Their clothes are TINY if you get the little sizes (they've gotten smaller over the last few years) but they still have some bigger clothes too for people that are a little larger. Some shirts go up to xxl. (if I still wanted to shop there, I would probably be a medium)


    Hollister and abercrombie are good for people around the ages of 13-17. They run sort of small for teen sizes, and they don't have too many large sizes, so they're not that great for overweight or bigger people. Also, I find a lot of their shirts run really small on the boob area... that may just be me though. But if you're thin and flat chested, these would be great stores for you (I'm a small at those stores)


    American Eagle can probably cater to the most ages and sizes. It's mostly for older teens (and even people in their 20's and beyond can find age appropriate casual clothes), but I started shopping there when I was 12, and I could still find stuff. They offer a lot of sizes (xxs-xxl on most items if you go online), but they also run really big on some stuff. (I'm usually an xs and 00 or 0 in jeans, but I've been a xxs a lot of times too) 


    I hope that clears stuff up for anyone confused on why hollister doesn't fit them, and what store they should shop at. Sorry it was so long!

  5. Hollisters not that great.... argueing over store and calling plus sized girls fat & ugly and smaller/petite girls little and or whateverr... It doesn't make any sense... build a bridge and cross it..


  6.  okay, listen hear fuckfaces, its not about being fat, or being too tall, all of you little c***s saying "change yourself if you want to fit into their clothes" why the f**k should we change ourselves , its not my fault i like hollister abercrombie and all of those places and everytime i f*****g walk in an extra large is like a medium in target. so what? over weight people are supposed to shop at other low price stores? like way to discriminate.. maybe you should make bigger f*****g clothes


  7. im doing a project on this lol yhu guys mke me giggle bt i do think its kinda wrng i wear a size 9 pants and a small shirt


  8. Ok first of all I love Hollister it is my fav store and it's true there sizes run small I mean I'm not big i'm only 120 pounds and wear a size 3 and medium in shirts also I don't think you need a flat butt I don't have one and flat chest because, i don't have one either and I fit in them.


  9. U GUYS ARE STUPID HOLLISTER IS FOR SKINNY PPL ONLY! FAT PPL GTFO n***a


  10. PEOPLE ARE f*****g RUDE SORRY IM NOT A f*****g SIZE 00000000000 SORRY FOR BEING f*****g FAT. LIKE d**n PEOPLE STFU.


  11. Well, for one thing it depends on what your built like. For instance my friend is about 40 pounds smaller than me and he wears a medium. I'm about just over 200, 5'4, and I wear an X-tra large with no problem. I have a little chubbiness on me, I'm not going to lie. Sometimes you just have to go for the biggest size and when you try the shirts on, make sure that you're wearing some smaller jeans/skirt. That always helps. Plus, you have to adjust them to fit you when you're wearing them.


  12. I think it's horrible. For all the people saying "your too big for this store get over it", I think is extremely selfish and rude. I am a college swimmer, I wear an XL hoodie because of my shoulders and arms, which are very built. XL is not a big size at all. What if you have a bigger chest? That makes you go up a size as well. Its horrible.


  13. its for teens people! They do have extra larges? and if you cant fit them your too old or your short for your size or your just big. people who are overweight shouldnt expect everyone to say they are "built bigger" or  "tall". you are what you are and if your not happy with what it is then change it or deal with it.


  14. I love their clothes, but I wear an xxl in Abercrombie & Fitch. I was thinking that they should just make an xxl for Hollister, too.


  15. Hollister really doesnt.. i mean i wear a large on top and 7's on the bottoms......if you arnet comfortable in their clothes their is no reason for you to wear them. I find the clothes perfect... yeah sometimes you have to order ofline but wateverr if you really want it that bad that work for it... and oh yeah.. everyone who is saying s**t abbout fat people cut it outttt. im a little over weight and i am liked by like 3 guys... 2 who are older than me.im just saying stop talkin s**t about people just because ur jealous you dont have b***s or an a*s because you weigh 80 pounds alright? not ever one is the same so GET OVER IT!

  16. Ok listen, hollister has very, very VERY big sizes. I am 16 and im 107 lb's. I am skiny and it is very hard for me to fit in some of their bottums because what they think is a size 0 is really like a size 3 in wet seal. So I really think that they should make the sizes smaller. If hollister is only supposed to be for people who are from the ages 14-18 then why do we need such big sizes? They are big enough already. And it is a lie when people say you need to be flat and have no butt to wear hollister clothes because I am flat and I don't fit in their shirts. Anyways, my point is that when you walk into the store and look at all the sizes all the xs are GONE! doesn't that mean ANYTHING? obviously it means that there are alot of thin people that need those sizes and there is not enough! Ttust me, I do want to gain weight and I guess this could be a little motivator but it should be a motivator for all of you that dont fit in the clothes becuase you are too big. The sizes are very big and there is no reason why you shouldnt fit into their clothes. I think I have proven my point so lets make more xs !!!

  17. i am 13 and i bought jeans that were size 26 and they fit and no i'm not fat i'm skinny o yea and go to American Eagle if u want flip flops that will fit a 13 year old and try size 9 those would fit

  18. i don't know y they run small but i think its wrong that they make people feel bad about themselves and they should extend their sizes so more people can wear their clothes and feel comfortable.

  19. i'm 13 & i've been wearing hollister since i've been around 11. i'm a size 0 in pants/shorts & a XS in shirts. it doesn't make since though since im a very little chubby. but still since im short they don't fit me well. so if your short like around 5 foot or below itll be huge ahha

  20. yes hollister is meant for teens 16-18 but not all teens are really skinny just because you are and brag about wearing hollister when other people want to but can`t your just being an a*s and telling them to lose a few punds isn`t nice and fat people are no diffrent they want to wear cool styles and hollister just makes them small i vote to have hollister make bigger sizes

  21. I am twelve and they are HUGE on me. I wear tiny sizes, so yeah....don't feel bad if you are a little bigger. it would be good to lose a little weight, but ask your doctor for help with that! I am naturally small, i don't fit in juniors yet. im wearing a hollister shirt now, but i shrunk it lol

  22. The clothing is not that small. The biggest size they seel is an 11, and that's pretty big for a teenage girl. Hollister also tries to market to the popular teenagers in high school, who are usually size 1 or 3, not 13 and 15. Also, girls shouldn't be that big; that's unhealthy. I'm not saying that big girls aren't pretty, but they're unhealthy, and have plenty of stores that don't even sell size 5. So don't complain how they're too small, they just don't market to the big girls/guys.

  23. People need to realize Hollister is aimed at people aged 14-18. No younger, no older. So all the sizes are for TEENS with developing bodies. No, a normal young adult will NOT fit into their normal size there. You guys say A&F has "normal" sizing like it's some insult to Hollister. They're owned by the same company. A&F is for Adults, Hollister is for teens. If you are an adult and want to shop at Hollister, then by all means go ahead, but don't complain about the sizes jesus.

  24. I'm a dude, and I usually do o.k. in their large or X-Large clothes. My problem is I'd like to buy their flip flops, but they don't make them for us size 13 dudes. Aren't guys supposed to have man-sized feet?

  25. personally, i think all of the tiny kids are totally nasty and unhealthy. i play soccer, im sporty, and my muscles are amazing. i love me legs, but im not the S****y twig that people like. hollister is just meant for people with money and "the body" for it. hollister and abercrombie are just fake knock offs, they arent even that cool. if you wanna talk designer, try some coach, dolce and gabonna. stop be loser posers.

  26. oh my gosh guys, just like how there are overweight people there are underweight people. You guys already have plus-sized clothing so why can't we have petite-sized clothing? That is only fair. Do we go around a complain about how some stores have large clothing? You guys are the ones putting YOURSELF down.

  27. well, i wear a small. but i do think it sucks that hollister doesnt make clothes bigger than a large. i have friends that wear xl and xxl and they are BEAUTIFUL!!! but they shop at aeropostale so whatever.....

  28. this goes out to Guest13650834 and all of the other people that think big people are fat and ugly ..... i have something to say if you are a bigger size then most people fell good about your self god made you that way. here are some tips if you are a bigger size and want to wear hollister.... find the a size that you can fit in even though it may be tight but not so tight you can breath. then when you are going out or to school put a light sweater on and that will get rid of your problems... i do that every day when i wear hollister. i love hollister even though it can be tight... or try AEROPOSTALE that is a verry good brand even though its not that expencive .

  29. idk... and im sick of it i think that they should at least have xs-l n the store like they do and then have like xxs-xxl online

    ps... i wear an xl and i hate that they dont have it there bcuz i really want to shop there but i cant and b4 anyone says that i just need to loose the weight im trying but its hard and u cant say that it isnt bcuz most of yall have been skinny all ur life and havent ever tried to loose weight all u have to do is not loose or gain any weight!!!

  30. Small?!?  I think they're too big.  I'm 13 years old and I'm pretty average sized.  Well, that all depends on your definition of average.  I'm a size 00 or a 1 depending on the store.  Most of my friends are size 3 and Hollister fits them PERFECTLY.  If it doesn't fit you don't shop there.  It's as simple as that.  Oh, and people say if you can't have b***s or a butt to wear their clothes, well I have a flat chest and guess what, the space in those shirts is too big for me and my more "chesty" friends look pretty good in them.  I would be happy if they got smaller sizes, but I guess that is just me.

  31. Whoever Guest13650834 is (first one at the top)...Your a d**k!! It's people like you that make girls feel bad about themselves! Go to school and take a class on common courtesy or how to communicate better with other!

  32. im a size 3 and wear a small and every other store clothes its too d**n bigg soo Im personally glad that holister sells small clothes because if they made them bigger fat ugly people would wear them and that would make me not wear them soo go lose weight and quit complaining  gosh it really no that hard

  33. i am a xl and i want a hollister shirt in that size a girl on

  34. First of all...i agree that they should range the model sizes..but the sizes are normal. ive seen bigger girls who wear hollister with room to spare. and when i go in those stores all i can find is Mediums and Larges. im a extra small, and when they dont have my size it sucks. cuz if i go and bigger then a small im swimming in the shirt, sweater. etc. But there sizes go down to be pretty small because mostly teens shop there. and there are a lot of smaller people, so if they made all the shirts for bigger people they would get half the buisness they get now. most of my friends are pretty small. they all shop at hollister if there sizes were huge thats like 20 less people paying for there stuff.

  35. because they want normal people to feel bad about themselves and go lose weight to look extremely skinny and sick....terrible!!! id rather have meat on my bones and enjoy my food than starve myself and feel my bones when i lay down just to wear their brand!!! blehhhh

  36. every brand, has there own fit-
    thats what makes em different & unique.

  37. Everywhere else sells normal sizes and run out of smalls in like a day because all the fat people are lying to themselves and thinking that they will look AMAZING with their rolls hanging out all over the place.

    Why complain about ONE store that doesn't sell "normal" size clothes for you fat people? Lose some weight, stop complaining.

  38. i work at hollister in california as an in store model. i wear a size 7 there yet im stick skinny so yeahh they do make em smaller than usual

  39. It makes the clothes more appealing. Small skinny clothes look more appealing than fat clothes. I think people think if they see a cute skinny little shirt, they too will look cute and skinny in it.


    Personally, I'm glad they make them small, because I am a small girl, and most brands size small does not fit me. But Hollister does.
