Woman Buys New Clothes That Fit Perfectly, But When They Started to Look Big, She Discovered the Problem Wasn’t the Clothes.

When the Original Poster (OP) discovered her newly purchased clothes mysteriously loosening, she couldn’t fathom the cause. The revelation that her roommate, struggling with her own insecurities, was secretly wearing them escalated the situation into a heated confrontation.

The roommate has been wearing OP’s clothes for several hours at a time. Five sets of her expensive new clothes have been stretched out because of the roommate’s larger frame. OP is left with clothes that look ridiculous and uncomfortable on her.

Confronted about her actions, the roommate defends herself. She argues that the clothes looked so nice that she wanted to try them out. She admits to struggling to find nice clothes due to her size.

Broken Trust

The roommate never sought permission from OP to wear the clothes. She believed it was an insignificant matter. This violation of trust deeply upsets OP.

One reader said, “It’s your property, and not asking you if they can try them on is kind of an invasion of privacy and a sanitary issue.”

Another Commenter Thinks

Another responder wrote: “You would have been better off explaining to her what happened and asking her to just buy them from you at that point because they can no longer fit you properly before you go verbally insulting her and throwing locks on your closet door.”

A different person states, “You perhaps should not have used the word ‘fat,’ but it is what it is. She has no right to be offended about the lock, which tells me she intended to do it again.”

A Final Perspective on the Matter

Another viewpoint on the story: “Calling her fat wasn’t OP’s best move, but I can understand this being said in a fit of rage, especially with the culprit not saying they are sorry, but trying to gaslight OP into accepting that it’s okay that her stuff was worn and damaged.”
