Isn't it amazing how advertising slogans can stick?
Nearly 25 years after the fact, I still remember being challenged by a jeans ad campaign: Do you fit the legend? Ah, that stretch denim; the high waist; the red tab. I remember so well. Mostly of course for the fact that I fitted neither the legend - nor the garment in question - particularly well. My fragile, youthful self-esteem was of course dented by my lack of legendedness.
Oh well. As I've grown older I have tried to take less notice of slogans and buy-lines.
Which is why I should have exercised a little more caution when I saw a ladies' pattern line called Made For You. A pattern made for moi? Really? Yippeeeeeee.
Sadly the bubble burst early. While the patterns boast bodice pieces between an A and a D cup, the NY Times tells us that the best selling bra is now a DD cup. What a pity the pattern companies are not keeping ... ahem ... abreast of trends.
Its a disappointment, that's for sure. And unfortunately feeling deflated is in no way matched by any actual physical deflation. So, multiple pattern alterations and three toiles later, my suspicion is that Made For You doesn't really mean You in the sense of Me.
I can only hope one day there might also be a Made For You Even If You Have Big Bazookas. Now that would be both fitting and legendary if you ask me.
