Same goes with tight tops, tube tops, etc. It looks normal on a normal looking girl at the mall. If a girl is obese it looks trashy when her shirt is skin tight.
You are confusing fit with your personal preferences.

Everyone looks terrible when they are wearing clothes that do not fit correctly. (And sometimes that can translate into trashy. Other times it is just not flattering.)

I am a on the conservative end, so in my book, something like a tube top is pretty iffy. There are very few people it works on, mostly because of the combo of no support for your chest and limited occasions it is appropriate for. Or on the other side those bandage dresses that are all the rage. They can be cute if not too tight. Most of the time people wear them too tight. No matter what their shape or size is. (They also look better on a proportionate figure in my book).

Geeze I wish I had your mindset lol. Even with my waist being at 33 in it should probably be more like 31.5... I would never consider myself having a small waist where it's currently at. Luckily my shoulders are big (52.5 in.) and my chest is 46 in. so it makes my waist looks smaller than it actually is.

My gf has a 25.5" waist and look healthy and normal. Not overly thin by any means but def. not fat either.

Back 10-15 years ago, I'd say 34 in was average. Now I think its 36 in...maybe even 38 in. I get called skinny all the time now.

Wait, are you male or female? First youre talking about your penis and then on the same page you talked about you knowing how big breasted women feel haha.

If you're a dude that makes way more sense.

My shirts are either skin tight up top and normal in the stomach, or normal up top but look like a night gown below lol.

I like sundresses, but you can put a trashy lady into a sundress and it looks trashy on her even though a classy lady will sport it nicely.

Things that drop someone towards the trashy side for me:

Tattoos...especially multiple, large or sleeved
Fake boobs
Smoking
Swearing
Ghetto talk
Too much make-up
Hair over done
Can't walk in heels gracefully...some look like they're walking up stairs or doing tires
Poor posture

Thirded. I've got very big lats, and they can be a problem with some shirts.

As for the original topic: I guess it's about leaving stuff to the imagination. Showing a little bit can still be classy, but if it's all out on display, that's trashy.

I understand it is hot out but a couple extra inches of clothing is not going to make a huge difference in temp control.
I agree.
Leave something to the imagination, regardless of size/shape.

This is one of the reasons I don't worry about looking 'trashy'....I have a sleeve of tattoos so no matter what I do, or what I wear I'll be considered trashy by a large portion of the population.
