Impish Posted October 19, 2012 Share Posted October 19, 2012 I don't know what clown school you folks came from, but this plus sized Momma has a few issues w/the so called fashionable dresses you crank out. In no particular order: I am plus sized. Chances are, I have bOOks. Generous ones. Not allowing enough room in the dress for anyone w/bOOks, let alone the TOMES that I tote around, is not good. Nor is cutting the dress in such a way that a bOOkshelf is impossible to be worn a good plan. Waist. We need a WAIST, ppl. Esp when we're plus sized. Something that hangs like a flipping Hefty bag, is not ok. It makes us one big blob, and appear bigger than we actually are. Believe it or not, some of us LIKE our curves. Really! And even have husbands, partners, lovers that ALSO LIKE OUR CURVES. We don't need to be covered in some 'fade into Grandma's wallpaper /couch' print from throat to ankles, w/out a *hint* of our curves. Really. We know we have bOOks, hips, and butts. And not all of us consider it a BAD thing. Now, lets not get completely insane and make everything cut to the navel, barely cover the butt, and cling like a second skin. But really, plus sized women want and need to feel attractive, flirty, s*xy, fun, feminine, romantic. So can you get past the idea that we're to be hidden away, upholstered w/as much material as possible, and shamed by the lack of choices, hideous patterns, and designs of this crud, and start designing for the REAL* women out there who buy it, and their significant others that would even BUY IT FOR US, b/c THEY love it when we feel wonderful? *btw: by real, I mean we actually do exist, the women who are plus sized and not living under a bridge in shame as we're obviously meant to by some of these so called designers :glare:* Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
