* There are a number of chapters in ''Manga/DailyLifeWithMonsterGirl'' that revolve around the eponymous monster girls dealing with the fact that the world hasn't quite adjusted to fit their physiques yet. The centaur and spider girl probably get this the most, as they're both far too large to use normal human furniture, while the other girls can usually adjust better.

* VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim deals with this...by ignoring it. Tails of Argonians and Khajiit clip though any chair they sit on and though any armour they wear. Curiously they do have the correct pose/animation for sitting on the ground without clipping.

Clothes with adjustable tail holes are standard, though angels are tailless. All public and recently constructed buildings are supposed to accommodate the size and weight of centaurs, though older apartment structures are exempt. In Japan at least it's considered discrimination for public stores to ''not'' account for and accommodate different species.

* In ''Literature/GrowingWings'', a preteen girl [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin grows wings]]. They're huge and realistic enough that she needs specially-made clothes, stops being able to sleep on her back, and finds that sitting in a car seat for hours is agony. When she joins a tiny commune of other winged people she's introduced to their style of clothing and 'wing socks' for very cold weather come up.
