I have never asked a guy that. And I never will.

Not that I ask this question , but "Do I look fat in these pants?" means "I don't like how I look in these pants." React accordingly:
  • You look great in those pants.
  • I like your other pants better.
  • Hush, you are beautiful.
  • Let's go shopping.

Also: "Take them off now, and get in that bed!"

No one's gonna believe me but I'm asking because I really wanna know how I look!

I think I'm fairly healthy about it most of time, though. Most of the time I ask "how does this look?" Instead of "do I look fat?" And I know I'm not fat, the shirt/outfit/whatever is just not flattering on me. I look fat in it not that I'm just fat.

hahahaha I can just picture it-

girl: "Honey do I look fat in this dress?"
guy: *comes over and hugs her* "i love you"
girl: "wtf does THAT mean?!"

But beyond that, I've never heard a woman ask that question.

Not sure if I've ever phrased this question in this way, but I do ask hubby how I look in a particular outfit. Sometimes it could be a questionable outfit and I want to know how it looks. Most of the time he's honest; other times he flatters me and I am quick to remind him to be honest...I'm going out to face the world.... I want to "represent" my hubby.

I always thought that was a joke. I use to have a t-shirt with a pic of the rear end of a big fat horse with a little saddle on asking if it made her butt look big.

I've never asked "do I look fat" .. but have asked for their opinion - pretty much if I am wearing something I don't usually wear ....

I ask my husband for his opinion on how things look on me all the time. If it's not flattering (aka I look fat), I want to know! Unfortunately, my husband does a lot of these " " because I think I look fat in everything. I pretty much know that if he states "you look hot!" or he gets up off the couch to see something on me, it's because he thinks it's flattering on me.
