Insulted by my pullover

I bought a new sweater this week – nothing special, just a lightweight cotton/linen mix sleeveless pullover that will do fine to wear for work. And I got it in the  sale which is a bonus. But when I put it on, I noticed that the label said:

“US   S; UK   S; DE   S; FR  M”

i.e. what will pass as small in the US, UK and Germany is considered a lard-assy medium by the svelte French!  I’m all in favour of companies selling internationally, but not at the expense of insulting their core clientele. Huh! I was definitely not impressed.

    It must be a typo – is all I can write to defend “mon pays natal”.
