Do you or have you ever asked "does this make me look fat?"?

If you do, do you ever get mad when/if they say "yes"?

  • I learned early on not to ask a question you might not like the answer to. So NOPE! I never ask that question.

  • I do for a joke, because I know I look fat in everything because I am. However, my hubby is so sweet, he says anytime I get dressed & fixed up nice, I'm pretty & I look really nice.

  • Of course!  And, the answer is always, "Of course, NOT!" :)

  • Yes, I get upset this is why I never ask, I just look in the mirror and judge for myself!

  • Why do girls get uptight about being skinny or fat!?  Don't they know that the Skinny girls (WAYYY BACK WHEN) were criticized, and only the plump huge women were wanted and loved and cherished!  Why do they think it's any different now!  Men love more cushion for the pushin!  << LoLs,  DH loves that I've gained weight with the pregnancy (besides bigger boobs, of course), he loves my love handles, he likes that I have a bigger butt and bigger thighs, and I'm chunky.  He just loves it!  He doesn't feel like he's going to break me anymore!  Girls, I don't know why you don't believe your DH or SO, why would they be with you if they thought your appearance was disgusting!?  Let me answer this question for you::: They would not be with you if this was the case!  So, get over yourself, you're gorgeous and you know it. :)

  • I don't think so. I pretty much decide if I think something makes me look fat or not. If I even wonder then it probably does. =)

  • no, because if I ask I want to know! I get mad if I make or buy something only to find out later that someone thought it looked bad and didn't say anything when it could have been changed.

    I took my little brother (then 7) with me to look at prom dresses because I knew he'd tell the truth!

    my mom wanted him to vote for the dress with the higher top- he voted for the low cut one because the other one 'made me look at little bit fat right here' then pointed to the waist.
    he didn't say I was fat, he said it was the dress- and it was true!
