Good morning and Happy Friday!
Question of the day: As a plus size woman, what are some of your greatest sources of frustration?
Perhaps small airplane seats? Tight restaurant booths? Getting a date? Getting a job? Finding clothes that fit, flatter and are affordable? People pointing, staring or making rude comments? Small bathroom stalls? Small dressing rooms?
Every plus size woman has probably dealt with, or continues to deal with, these problems and more.
One of my personal frustrations is plus size retail designers who seem to assume that every plus size woman is 10 feet tall and has big feet. Plus size clothes are usually too long for my short 5 ft. 1 inch body, so on top of the usual higher cost of the clothing, I have to pay for alterations. I have to say, I’m liking the current crop top trend because crop tops are usually not crop on me! This means that, for once, they land at my waist instead of flowing down to my knees. Shoes are always too big for my size 6 foot. With the wider width, and most shoes at plus size stores starting at size 7, my little feet end up going for a swim.
Share your pet peeves and solutions/tips & tricks if you have any!
Have an awesome weekend, and as always, be bold! Be beautiful! Be Pretty, Plus and Proud!
