The clothes at these plus size stores are ridiculous. Why can’t they replicate the same fashions for plus sizes that they do for everyone else? Why does everything have to have:
-A test pattern that looks like a curtain -Sleeves that look like dust ruffles -A bodice that has no definition, so you look like a blueberry (I have a waist dang it!) -Lengths of pants which are suitable for women over 6 feet -Lengths of sleeves which are suitable for women that have been stretched on some medieval rack -Fabrics that are so synthetic that standing near candles is seriously a hazard -Colors that either make you look like you work in a mortuary, or Rainbow Brite
Now that I am starting to lose weight, I don’t want to invest in clothing that I absolutely despise. I find myself finding one top that I like, and then I buy it in 10 different colors. So, essentially, I look the same all the time. Why can’t I have a fashion emergency and actually have someone to answer my 911? Where are you guys shopping?
I am 36 and have been overweight for most of my life. There are much better things that define me, but till I work on this weight, it is the stinky fart in the room. So, I write this to keep accountable, to find inspiration in others, to rekindle the joy in myself.
