Yes I have. Not exactly shooping, but understanding sizes.
Yes, unfortunately. I had to give as a present to a cousin.
No, I didn't.
Huum, I think it was an underwear.

It's usually fit and suit me so it hardly ever happens

Hi Mihaiheller,

Thanks for your message. I've let the developers know and I hope that it will be fixed soon. It seems to be a problem with just this lesson. The other lessons seem to be fine.

Thanks again,

I never have problems when I buy clothes, my size is very easy to find. I consider women if they have big problem to choose the clothes they are going to buy because they take a lot.
The tastes are very important, they will help you choose your garments well.

I think women are more complicated when buying some clothes or anything else, since we have many tastes and we are in my opinion more indecisive and men the first thing they like, they measure it and if they like it they will carry and if not, no.
