Ever walk down the street and see a plus size girl on a dress that is way too tight, emphasizing her folds and large stomach. I am sure we all have. As a plus size girl myself, it saddens me to see them. Some of my friends are guilty of this (I would like to think I am not; but I am sure I may have once or twice worn something too tight, though I can’t remember if i have). Out of respect for them, I wont feature their pictures, but una know unaselves.
The question is why do big girls wear too tight clothes when they are not Kim Kardashian. Some big girls wear small-clothes because they genuinely don’t know that the cloth is too tight and is emphasizing their body flaws. Others are defiant because smaller people are wearing them and they feel if it can enter and not tear, they are good to go. I would like to believe that all plus girls who wear too tight clothes have no idea how unflattering it looks, but come on! That’s why mirrors exist!!!!!! Tight clothes don’t make you look slimmer. It only serves to remind people how big you are.
Course there is the other side of the divide. Wearing too loose clothes. I was guilty of this because I loved the ease the free clothes gave me. A few years back, I didn’t care about fashion. I cared more about comfort. The downside was that everyone thought that I am actually bigger than i was. So if you are a plus size girl, having a closet full of muumuu like clothes is a very bad idea. Try and mix up comfort with style.
So my dear plus size ladies, ease up on the tight clothes. You know when a dress is too small. Try and dress for your size. You know what fits you. Study and understand your body. Dress to what accentuates your best features. There is nothing sexier than a plus size girl who knows how to dress her body. (skinny girls can pull off almost anything, so whatever…. yea i am hating on you skinny girls. Ha!)
Look around. There are many designers that cater to plus size ladies, so look for nice trends. Have fun with clothes……….just make sure they are the right size
Drop a line. Would you tell your plus size friend that she is wearing a wrong dress size?
