What are fat people supposed to wear?

Lol, people always have a problem with what fat people wear it seems. People are like:

"No leggings! Nobody wants to see your cellulite!"

"Cover your arms, nobody wants to see your flab"

"No crop tops! You're stomach it too big!"

I'm just wondering what they are supposed to wear lmao. What looks nice on bigger people? More than just sweat pants and a t shirt. 😛

  • Whatever the hell they like.

    People are complex. They say things that don't perfectly resemble their actual beliefs. Some people will honk their horn and yell as they're cut off in traffic, then two days later will themselves cut off somebody. Or they'll get onto somebody for saying something mean, then will themselves say something mean to somebody else.

    What I'm trying to say is that people aren't as committed to the words they say as they sound like they are. A person who says the hurtful things you listed to an obese man/woman may not actually be bothered by obesity. It just comes out of their mouth. And they may actually do the very things they're accusing others of doing.

    Advice for obese people: when people say that you shouldn't wear such-and-such clothing, just say something like, "Thanks for your opinion, but I think I'll wear what I want." Odds are that person will back off, because what they said was just an off-the-cuff remark that didn't have any conviction behind it.

  • Wrap tops and dresses look good provided u also have an ample cleavage. Vertical lines are slimming... I know they say black is too but I find it isn't on people over a certain weight... like I think my friend is about 20 stone and she looks better in colourful patterned things than black... I guess because they distract the eyes better.

    One other thing I notice is my friend always takes the time to do her make up nicely and paint her nails which I think helps a lot.

    Guessing the key is distraction. Also, sometimes loose fitting clothes can actually make you look bigger than you really are so if u have a waste then cinch it in with a belt and if u have good boobs then get them on display.

  • Alright, well, I'm a guy for one but I'm also horribly overweight. I always wear shirts one size up and look for comfortable jeans.

    Wear what you feel comfortable in. I've always thought jeans and a shirt always looks good on a curvy woman, but that's just me. :P You could also wear dresses if you really wanted

  • The reason fat people should stay away from leggings is because it becomes way too revealing. We have a big girl in our school that sometimes wears leggings, and let's just say that everything is visible (everything!). I don't want to see a camel toe or underwear contours when I'm at school trying to study...

  • I'm going to answer in general.

    The vast majority of people look best in clothes that fit them well. Really revealing may not be ideal for those who don't look all that hot. Where that line is, is ambiguous. I'm in okay shape, but not in such good shape that i seize opportunities to walk around shirtless. For men there's sort of 'fit in a jacket; < 'fit in a shirt' < 'fit in a t-shirt' < 'fit shirtless'. I'm most often in the second last category :p

    Anyway, its' common for overweight people to do one of two things: wear smaller clothing then their size (more common with women, and just highlights them looking fat) or wearing huge oversized clothes (common among both men and women, makes you look like jabba the hutt and doesn't fool anyone).

    If your clothes fit you badly, you look like you're the 'wrong' size. If your clothes fit you well, you sort of look like you fit them, as well?

    So that's the simplest answer. Wear clothes that fit.

    Beyond that i'm not an expert on overweight women's dress tbh, but i would hazard a guess it's not so different from men, so i'll say what i'd suggest to men, and you can probably figure out how it would apply? Construction in garments is your friend. A t-shirt is actually something that tends to look like crap on people who aren't in good shape, because it doesn't provide much shape itself. An overweight guy is almost certainly gonna look better in a polo short with a collar than a t-shirt. A more formal 'trouser' will impose more shape on him then a sweatpant. You want clothing that kind of imposes some order. I'd guess for women, clothing that sort of imposes a 'waist', visually is gonna be a big plus.

  • Some people are just angry that fat people even exist at all because they are super judgmental and sick in the head and can't just leave people with weight issues alone. Then again as a skinny person I have people poke my ribs and tell me to eat a burger, If one stupid burger would make people stop teasing me about my weight I definitely would have tried that already...

  • I don't want to see leggings as pants (unless they are covering their ass with a large tunic or shirt) on skinny or fat people, especially no crop tops, unless they wear like a tank top or cover their stomach. And as far showing arms? Eh. That's fine by me.

    But, I'll never go up to anyone and tell them to cover up.

  • I do think there are common known rules that tell us what will make you look good depending on your body type. I do follow them because as a curvy girl, I feel way more confident when I wear clothes that fits me well. I can't wear the same clothes as a skinny girl.
    If some people don't want to follow those rules, it's their chose, they just have to not care about what people think of them. We all judge. I know I would know find it good but I wouldn't say it out loud.

    For women, clothes they can fit, when people say that they are just being ignorant. They even have stores for women that's overweight and I don't see just sweatpants. I saw dresses, skirts, shorts, leggings, blouses, clothes a skinny girls would wear but is made for someone that is overweight.
