Inconvenient, as not affording sufficient space or room; uncomfortable
Some poets have seen death's offer in many forms and accepted the outcome but ignored incommodious invitations.
-- Lesley Choyce, Dance the Rocks Ashore
After dragging petticoats and skirts, even shortened ones, over many miles of prairie, I should find trousers much less incommodious.
-- Sandra Dallas, The Diary of Mattie Spenser
Incommodious begins in the Latin commodus, "convenient."
