It would be cool if you had them on, but you don't have too. I just wanted to see how some of us with not so perfect bodies fit in different styles of clothes.

We all hate our fat! But we've all probably got it, and I doubt anyone here will judge you.

I'm enjoying this way more than I should be. From the aforementioned Lane Bryant shopping extravaganza:

This is rather impractical for Tennessee because of how hot it is, but I like that it's shiny and I think the cut is pretty flattering. But it's definitely a nighttime outfit choice. The jeans in this pic are my very very favorites ever. They're also from Lane Bryant- Venezia flares in the dark wash. God, how I love those jeans.



It's the same shirt as the black shirt! Only blue! This shot is meant to emphasize the weirdness of the collar. I'm not used to it yet, just like I'm not used to the color. But it was like $5 so I'm not going to complain. Just haven't worked up the energy/proper situation to wear it out yet.



And finally, it's my black dress. This thing has seen me through two weddings, two fancy-ish wintertime parties, and a performance of "The Vagina Monologues" I was sort of forced into participating in. I swear in person the skirt looks less lampshade-y. I guess I'm a sucker for things with some sort of wrap or wrap-like detail on the stomach. Also, I'm a sucker for things that are, like this dress, rather low-cut. The splotch on my ankle is a very small and wussy tattoo.



And yeah, I know you're all jealous of my gold chair/messy room/orange cat passed out on his back in the hallway behind me in 2/3 pics.

Nice jeans! And they aren't even too long LOL.

I really like the black shiny shirt. I have a hard time with button down tops though. And the dress is too cute! Look at those curves

The jeans are still almost too long. After a few months they start getting frayed at the hem from me constantly stepping on them. Luckily they're pretty cheap.

And yes, I have a hard time with button-down tops, too. They tend to gap across the bust and basically let people see bits of me I'd rather keep covered up most of the time. I used to sew my button-down tops together at the buttons but that's awfully time consuming. So now I just isolate which part gaps and creatively safety pin it closed. Of course, that means I have to take the pin out every time I wash it. And god forbid you're in a situation where someone else is unbuttoning your shirt. Yikes, that's sort of crass. (I just reminded myself of the part in Bridget Jones's Diary {the book, not the movie} where she's picking out undergarments for a fancy party. Her friend suggests some serious tummy-tucking, boob-lifting underthings, and she's like "wait, what if someone puts their hand up my skirt?!") Even when you're fat, it's a legitimate concern!

And thank you for complimenting my curves... I posted something about 'em on the "celeb bodies you wish you had" thread that makes me giggle. Or it would make me giggle if it wasn't so true.

So I'm going to solicit an opinion out of ya'll: my roommate says that the slightly puffy sleeves on the silk tops are no good, mostly because they look too "young" and also make me look wider up top than I am. But I think it's cool because I have fairly narrow shoulders. What do you think? (The "makes you look wide" phenomenon is more obvious in the pic with the blue shirt.)

I like puffy sleeves. Since my shoulder line is rounded it kind of makes me look more even.

That's a vrey interesting thread! Unfortunately I don't have much to show myself (I really need to find a good thrift store here, because otherwise it's too expensive to buy new clothes at the moment ), but I've liked reading it and looking at the pictures.
