There's a typo on this sizing label

This is why it's hard for me to shop in Asia. Here's a page from a Korean fashion magazine.
"For small size"
"For big size"
Let's get a closer look at the plus-size model -
Do you see the same thing I see? She's not plus-sized! She's normal. She's healthy. She looks like she could stand up to a strong wind and possibly play soccer with guys. And in Asia she's a plus-size model. And we won't even talk about those God-awful clothes they're making the "big" girl wear.
I try to avoid shopping in Beijing but sometimes I just have to. And occasionally I walk into a store and ask about a particular item and the sales clerk says something seemingly-innocent like, "Wait a sec, I think I have a XXXL in the back. Let me see if I can find it."
No way, sister. I am from the land of vanity sizing and I know my rights.
"Uh-uh, don't even bring something out here that says XXXL because I am not wearing it, even if it fits."
I'm out the door before they can even offer an XXL that might fit me, we could try. Whatever.
