A “Fat” Girl In Disco Pants..

Okay, so I have seen a lot of comments lately that have infuriated me. So much so, that I am chucking my newly found schedule out the window for tonight and I am posting a rant! (Again – sorry!).

Basically, according to some people’s (small-minded and ridiculous) opinions, size 14 is too “fat” to be wearing disco pants. My response to that is..excuse my french…bullsh*t. It really, really annoys me that people have the nerve to actually say comments like this, knowing full well that curvy girls will read what they have to say. Yes, they may “look better” on a size 8 girl, but is that going to make me rip them off and set them on fire and swear to never wear them again? Certainly not!

Why the hell is it socially acceptable for people to tell others what they can and can’t wear. Why is it acceptable that comments like this can have disastrous effects on ladies of all ages who suffer with their body image. WHY is it acceptable that there are so many people with eating disorders, depression and low self-worth as a result of another person’s nasty comments?

I don’t have an answer, but I wish it would stop. For all of our sakes.

I have been complemented on wearing disco pants and I like how they show off my curves, but I have also been stared at by the occasional Skinny Minnie who obviously disapproves of my fashion choice. My response? A full on and possibly psychotic stare back. She started it.

In this day of age, everyone should have the freedom to wear whatever they want to wear. Everyone should have the freedom to walk down the street without feeling self-conscious that someone will look them up and down and make them feel as if they are some sort of ogre. Everyone should have the freedom to run down the street screaming “I AM CURVY AND I LOVE IT!”. Okay, maybe not the last one as that is a little bit crazy I admit, but you get the point…

Of course, there is the other side of the spectrum, where naturally very thin girls get questioned “why are you so skinny?”. Sorry, what? Why on earth would you ever ask someone that? And what exactly are they going to say to that question without feeling extremely awkward? The truth is that a lot of girls who are natural thin, try their hardest to put on weight but fail (I sometimes wish I had that problem, but I understand how annoying and frustrating it must be for them, especially when they face ridiculously immature and ignorant questions such as “are you anorexic?”). I want to mention this too, because I don’t want people to think that I only believe that the more curvy girls get abuse and rude comments.

Whenever I see comments about weight, I always feel inclined to add my opinion and I will NEVER stand for it being said to anybody, never-mind myself. I have posted numerous times about being a curvy girl and how we should love ourselves, although the sad thing is, it’s not easy to do. I hate my wobbly bits, I don’t like my thighs and I can’t stand my arms and I am sure that some of the ladies out there who believe they are too skinny, struggle with a bit of self loathing on a daily basis too. But, whatever! As long as you are happy and healthy, then screw it.

Don’t ever let someone else put you down and never ever let them tell you that you can’t wear something that you love because you are too fat or too skinny. If you think you look good in something, then you go out there and show your curvy “booty” and voluptuous thighs off to the world! (And to the more slender ladies, you show off your amazing figures too!).

Long live the curvy girl wearing the disco pant. Amen

  1. I think you look great in everything you wear. Ignore these small minded people, most of them are just jealous anyway! I have always been thin but a few years ago I was VERY thin, not because I didn’t eat, just because that is how I am. I use to get so upset when people would say whay are you so thin? How am I suppose to respond to that? lol I think it is awesome that everyone is different. 🙂 xx

    • Thanks Kate 🙂 I know, I can’t understand why people would ask something like that..it is rude and actually quite a spiteful question which again is usually from jealousy! Wish everyone was just nice haha! Your right too, it would be boring if we were all the same size and looked the same!! xxx

  2. I agree completely with what you’re saying but only if people are wearing the right size! It annoys me when people wear leggings that are clearly at least 2 sizes too small for them and leave literally nothing to the imagination, I don’t want to see that much of anyone’s private area thanks! I don’t care what size you are as long as you’re wearing the right size! xx

  3. Nice post! I think you look lovely, and that no matter what size someone is, they are beautiful. As long as you are healthy, that should be all that matters! :] Besides, with as much hate as womens bodies have been getting lately, we really need to start taking a stand and taking charge to say that it’s unacceptable. All of this woman on woman bashing is absolutely pitiful and disgusting, we should be helping each other, not throwing each other under the bus!

    • Thank you! 🙂 You are right there, everyone is beautiful and unique and as I always say, it would be boring if we were all the same size! Yep! We should stick together, not bitch and be mean about one another, but then I guess a lot of it also boils down to jealousy of others, which can turn people to be very nasty! x

  4. You look great. Tell them to f…off. Funny though i have written a debate about this and it will be posted shortly. Look out for it. I wrote it on the back of what one of my friends said about a girl we used to know years ago who has come on facebook. She said omg she’s huge. My comment back was well so what, i am not skinny either. She’s all about show and is forever on a bloody diet and i hate comments like that. It should never be about the way anyone looks

  5. You look good in them. Who the fuck asked anyone’s opinion on what you should wear, no one.
    You’re not offensive to my eye and whoever thinks otherwise really needs to sit back and evaluate the important things in this world they should be disgusted by.

    • Thank you! And exactly, it genuinely really pisses me off how people feel they have the right to tell people they can’t wear something. If I wanna wear disco pants, I’ll bloody wear em and no one should feel that they can’t wear something that they love. Annoys me when some people very clearly state that above a size 12 is fat….people like that are exactly what is wrong in this world haha! Thank you for commenting! x

  6. AMEN! totally agree with you! embrace your haters, they hate because they’re just hella jealous about what you got that they don’t. You look fabulous, keep rocking the disco pants!
