If the question is "do Asian women have tiny waists or something?", the answer would be yes.

The healthy girls we have here really do have a figure like anime characters.

However the size chart is confusing to me, specially the waist part:
http://www.nissen.co.jp/sho_item/size/080300722.asp

This skirt, is it supposed to start at your belly button or higher? I don't get it do Asian women have tiny waists or something?
If I measure my waist at my belly button I come to the maximum of 79 CM, but the other measurement they have listed for hip is then far too big for me, my hip size is around 2 sizes smaller than the amount they have listed with the corresponding waist size
According to the picture and description it seem that you wear it waist high. And yes, these sizings seem to have a bigger difference between waist-hips than westerns usually have. I think the difference in waist-hips in western(European) charting is usually about 25-26 cm, here it's 29 cm. So the more accurate thing to say here would be that Japanese women have wider hips, which make their waists look smaller

If I was you, I'd only look for the waist here, since it's a skirt, and the design is more puffy anyways. Do what you think is right...

Thank you ^^
I know those sizes seem very weird.. same with sweaters and shirts, for some reason they hardly have bust measurements fitting for people who have a C-cup either >.<

Alternatives and help would be appreciated.
As you said, you could create a thread in FC. Have a chat to Evil Rick or Ricky Controversy about that sort of thing, as they both have their own threads deidicated to that sort of thing. Here's a link to each of their threads;

Evil Rick presents Master Light
Controversy's Shorts(tories)

Can't help you on any other FF sites, as FanFiction.net was the only one I knew about.

I wish you hadn't said this because I now find myself looking at Tokyo women's hips to see if they are really wider than those of Western women... Definitely risking some serious legal and physical punishment here, but given it's now spring and mini- and short skirts are back in fashion, it wasn't hard to do.

*cough* On a purely scientific interest - but on a totally unscientific basis - I would say that the... width varies just as those of Western women. That skirt style, I remember seeing it in vogue a few years ago. It was meant for the young trendy OL's, I think - Otemachi by day and Ometesando/Aoyama by night - and these women were never even close to being overweight, however.

My wife plans to replace/create her entire wardrobe when we visit Japan. She's absolutely had it with American stores and fashion that have "supersized" sizes (e.g. a size 0 USED to be a size 4) and rarely carry clothing for anyone under size 6. She often dresses loli-fied because there's often no other choice. The silly thing is that her size simply isn't that unusual in cities with significant asian populations.

You should be lucky that you have your own loli.

Convince her out of it. Tell her that you think she looks cute in that way.

I've given up on clothes found in the U.S. a long time ago... and even in regular clothes outlets in Tokyo, I can't find clothes (specifically business- or business/casual-styled pants) that fit both my waist and the length of my legs.

What programs are you trying to get this to work for?

On Windows, to display '' the keystroke is ALT + 0224. You can view the different keystrokes for different characters via the character map (start > run > charmap).

On Mac go to System Preferences > International > Input Menu > Character Palette. On Mac I think it's the same as Windows in having shortcut to displaying certain characters. These can be displayed in the Character Palette.

Hope this helps.

Well if it doesn't work again, let us know. If we can't help, we can recommend you something that might, namely this :

Ok I'm in a real dilemma right now. I'm not even sure if this questions is qualified for this thread but I need to hear as many opinions from as many people as possible.

Failing a subject in college would show up in your transcript. How big of a problem can this be when you're going to get a job?

Depends on whether the subject is relevant to your future job. If it is not, it isn't a problem.

Besides, the transcript is only a passport to your career. The rest of it would be all on your ability to suck up and pet down.

It depends, IMHO. Is the class one of those in your major? If so, you'll have to make it up the next time it is offered, which could delay your graduation unless you (1) take an overload in a later semester or (2) take it in a summer program - if your school allows it.

Your GPA will be affected as well, so if you are looking at a program that has a GPA threshold, you could run the risk of being excluded from it automatically. In the U.S., for example, programs offered by consulting companies and so on have/had these. However, if the class is a "fluff" class, you may be able to explain it away in the interview. As the number of years pass, this becomes less important - unless you apply to graduate school, of course.

If it is not too late, though, could you drop the class without being penalized?

OK.... I am assuming by college you mean something like HSC or A levels?
[ In US, college means university ]

When you go to get a job, no one cares about what grades you got in college. People ask what you did in university and 90% of them don't even ask what class you got for your degree.

So, you are OK and don't need to be worried. But, try not to get F's... drop problematic subjects if necessary.

That depends on who/how you are, where you live, which people you know, the significance of the subject in the context of your studies....

If you are going to be employed in a working environment were teamwork is important, your personality is at least as important as your other qualifications.

Many employers want to have people who are proactive, who have shown the initiatve to work as student workers in the field where they want to work later on (for example). If you get a good written evaluation of your work, that can be worth as much as good marks in college. This is in part because theory isn't everything and many employers know about this.

However, should your education limit your job perspectives to professions that are highly overrun, you need to be top, because of the increased competition that you will face under such job-market conditions. Now lets assume you were not top notch in your field, then your only chance are contacts to people in the right positions. Which is in part dependend on your socializing skills... (and well, lets be honest... your looks/health/social standing - personnel managers would not admit it, because of equality rules and such, but these things will have a certain impact too).

It depends on the company's standards, some of them requires a minimum of 2 failing marks while other requires none. However, if you're applying on fast food chains, costumer support or some jobs that doesn't require any major technical skills, having a failing subject won't be a problem.

Um, are you saying some companies want you to have failed at least two classes?
