Just curious.

  • Maybe hoping they'll fit in it soon? Maybe they just gained weight recently and they don't see it yet.
    I agree though, if ppl wore clothes that fit, they would look so much better.

  • Do you want attention from this post?

  • I don't think they care what others think.

  • Who knows, maybe they just like tight fitting clothes? I'd rather see a woman wearing clothes a size too small then some idiot with his pants hanging off his ass and down to his knees.

  • Maybe they grew into them,, LOL! I had a pair of jeans on the other day, and honestly didn't realize how tight they had become, until my son asked me why I had lines on my butt,, my panty lines! Oh well, at least I don't have wrinkles!!!

  • bc that woman on What Not to Wear tells us to not wear large clothes. She said to buy clothes that show our figure so we do.

  • I always say just because they make it in your size doesnt mean you can wear it. Some people think they look good and some people dress that way to get attention. I myself am not a small person by any means and I cant stand when my clothes are too tight, but I guess others can. you would have to ask those people next time you see someone wearing something you think looks bad.

  • I'm chubby, and can vouch that it's not only the tad big ones.

    I'm a size 16 and proud to tell people. Coming from a size 28....size 16 is nothing for me to admit too :)
    However, I do like to dress appropriate. I don't like to show my back boobs or spare tires. :)

    Today, I was at the mall, and this beautiful lady walked passed me...she may have been like a 6...and had on a size 2 pants...her ass crack was showing and it's completely nasty.

    Big or small...putting on smaller clothes than you can wear...I think it makes you look awful.
