Do these girls not have a mirror or a friend to tell them they look awful? I see women from the ages of teen and up wearing clothing, usually tops, that are just too tight on their gut.

This look makes them seem either as big as they are or even bigger.

As a 28 year old woman, I would think that most other women would rather wear something that is the proper size AND flattering.

Last night, at a movie and then for drinks afterwards, I saw gals wearing tops that did not fit. People were able to see the indent of a belly button, the back straps of a bra and the skin that was trying to escape. I just dont get it. Not to mention the muffin top that is peeking out over a gal's hips.

Perhaps it is because I am in San Antonio...

I do know that the young and educated and well employed girls that I know would never dress that way.

Could it be socio-economic?

To each their own, but describing seeing her belly button impression, hum, that's just not right...some just don't seem to care how they look, or that's the way they have dressed for a good time, so don't know better...just don't approach them....

No they do not have friends or their friends have very poor taste too.

The only people whom look good in tights are very skinny or thin or athletic folks.

It doesn't have anything to do with socio-economic class, age, employment, ethnicity, formal education... Just a lack of common sense or education in the sense of realizing what you look good in or not. Sensible friends could be a real help. I think it looks gross myself. If you're hanging out, don't wear it.

I'm 50 and have enough sense to know I don't look good without a bra. Overweight girls should have enough sense to know a fat roll looks better when covered instead of pooching out over their jeans. Nothing wrong with a few extra pounds....what is wrong is not wearing clothes that flatter the body type.

You know, I was thinking along the lines of perhaps a person can't afford to buy new clothing even though they gained weight. Or perhaps their sig. other prefers a larger size woman.

Maybe you are right, bad taste does not discriminate.

Well, I think people who dress that way have the right to do so If you want to try to shove 10 pounds of sugar into a 5 pound bag - who am I to tell them they can't.

This happens all over the place, as far as I know. I see lots of women and girls dressed inappropriately for their size and shape. Spandex and lumpiness do not go together!!!

Well, people's opinion of "attractive" can be different. Although I do agree that if you don't got it, then don't flaunt it but I've also seen girls with nice bodies lookin' raunchy, inapprorpriate or gross. It goes both ways, IMO.
