I get clothes like that tailored.
You are wrong for generalizing and stereotyping white (and black women) like that, but you made me laugh out loud. It's just funny to me.
Anyhoo, I have my skirts taken in as well. I don't have a buffy butt or particularly wide hips, but still my pencil skirts gap. They must design them for women that have inverted booties.
