Shoppers put off by size label on Japanese clothing

A photo of this size label on the tag of a clothing item in Japan has been garnering much attention online. The image was first posted on Imgur seven days ago -- where it has attracted over 1.6 million views to date -- with the caption, "Japan doesn't sugarcoat their clothing sizes". It is not known which store or clothing line the tag belongs to. Netizens have been quick to share their thoughts on the unusual sighting, with many pointing out that the 'Fat' sizing would in fact be a 'Small' in the States. One wrote, "This is actually better than my shorts from Thailand labeled XXXXXXL." Others questioned if it was a marketing tactic, while some felt that it was a way of shaming plus-sized people in Japan. "It's 'illegal' to be fat in japan. Maybe this is their way of shaming the fatties into losing weight before they get in trouble," one user commented.
