I’ve noticed that a lot of over weight people try to hid their size.
One of the ways we try to hide is through our clothes.
I’ve always wore baggy, long and drab clored clothes, especially tops.
I started thinking about this yesterday when i got a package of clothes in the mail.
Normally I am a t-shirt/tank top and jeans/capris/shorts kinda gal. The shirts Skinny Emmie included were, well, fancy. Especially in comparison to what I normally wear.
Not to look a gift horse in the mouth, I promptly tried them on.
The tops are shorter and more form-fitting than my trusty t-shirts, but they didn’t look bad on me. Actually, they look pretty nice, even if I do say so myself.
One is a pinky-orange color that gathers between my breast. It really shows off the girls. The other is a low-cut purple cowl neck top, that again accentuates the girls.
I feel, dare I say, sexy in them.
So, why do people with weight issues try to hide their bodies behind oversized, frumpy clothes?
Do we think/believe that doing this is keeping the world from seeing how big we really are?
Why don’t we dress in a manner that is appropriate, yet makes us feel good, maybe even sexy, about ourselves?
