I wish this was exaggeration, I really do.
IS IT SO MUCH TO ASK
TO JUST BUY A TOP THAT I CAN WEAR
THAT PEOPLE CAN’T SEE MY BRA THROUGH?
True story. Until I get the company shirt, my work uniform is a white polo. So I had to buy a white polo. Not a problem, right? Polos are just heavy jersey. Shouldn’t be an issue, even if it is white.
I went through four stores because every single white lady’s polo was see-through. See-through to the point where an onlooker could pinpoint the exact location of the bleach stain on my bra.
So, in a quiet rage, I finally went to the men’s section. Wonder of wonders, the men’s polos were not see-through.
WHY? WHY IS MY PROFESSIONAL CLOTHING NOT HELD TO THE SAME STANDARDS OF OPAQUE-NESS AS MEN’S PROFESSIONAL CLOTHING?
I get most of my overshirts/jackets from the men’s section. For one, they have awesome jackets, and two— I have rather large breasts. I do not want something in cutsy glittery girly shit plastered across my chest, thank you. I get enough people that can’t look me in the eye.
my kingdom for a leather jacket with a decent curved waist
Bless this post.
Every fucking time I go out to look for a simple t-shirt, all I find are shirts that are super tight and uncomfortable for the sake of showing off your bust, have stupid sayings on them like “Lean, mean, sexy machine” (I have seriously seen shirts with those exact words), and have tiny fucking sleeves that don’t even cover your armpits (because we all have those days when we really don’t feel like shaving). Unfortunately for me, my mother thinks these shirts are cute and gets them for me constantly. :/
I like wearing “girls’ clothes” for the most part, but I wish shirts would never be see through, i could wear skinny jeans that fit my butt (seriously, everything always fits perfectly except the waistband and I don’t even have an ass), fake front pockets would be abolished, pockets would be big enough to actually be useful, and I could get a shirt that isn’t skin-tight but also not baggy as hell. You feel?
PREACH IT GIRLS
This is why I shop at Goodwill and make my own clothes (as my limited sewing ability allows). I don’t have to deal with whatever the fashion industry says I should wear. Goodwill has all kinds of things you wouldn’t find in another store, and what you can’t find there you can probably make yourself.
I propose we boycott the stupid crap at stores and start dressing with class again.
I like wearing girly clothes until I notice that you can totally see my bra through the shirt which makes me have to put on a tank… I also have issue where my crack shows when I bend down because they dont make shirts long enough anymore. LUCKILY duluth trading started making shirts for this problem.
I usually wear dresses or jeans/jeggings with hand-me-down men’s flannel shirts or women’s camo t-shirts (camo’s almost never see through). Oh, and knitted sweaters.
I hate it the most when you go to a “plus size section” and all the shirts look like a glitter bomb with its sequin friend threw up on everything. It sucks. And most companies make plus size shirts short and wide, but I need something to button over my boobs and not show my buttcrack if I lean over in a chair. This one issue aggravates me to death!
AND DONT GET ME STARTED ON LADIES BUTTONUPS OMG NO I’m in mock trial so I’m supposed to wear one, but the ones “in my size” either fit up until the bust or fit in the bust and are suuuuuper baggy everywhere else. It’s so awful.
And the men’s section has waaaay better shirts.
