Why do "bigger girls" love short hair?

I'm just sayin.... short hair makes your face look more round, more "plump" and you appear more overweight. 

WHY do so many overweight women like shorter hair? If you grow it out it elongates not only your face, but even your shoulders, torso, makes your breasts look big and your body look small. 

I'm not saying this to be mean... I just think when you cut it off into a pixie cut it really amplifies your size. If you are embarassed about your weight (and lets face it, MOST women aren't proud or glad to be overweight!) why would you make it worse?!?! 

My friend had long hair... past her boobs. I always considered her "chunky" but not really "Fat"...she cut it off to a bob. Her weight hasn't changed in the SLIGHTEST... and while her bob looks cute and fun, her entire body looks like she gained a good 30 lbs. 

I realize shorter hair is easier to manage and longer hair is a true pain in the arse. But shoulder length? Or as long as you can manage? I mean really... do yourself some FAVORS! 

After my friend whacked her hair off I started noticing that the larger girls are the ones who cut it short the most often. Skinny girls keep it long. I was just more aware of it... and I hardly EVER see a noticeably overweight woman with long hair. Maybe that's because longer hair hides the weight... idk. but either way I think short hair on larger women is a bad idea. 

Just my opinion.

That's actually the opposite of the truth. Long hair "weighs you down."

I have had both long and short hair. Long requires more maintenance. Some people just don't consider that one thing to spend time on.

I think long hair looks bad on over weight girls. Not curvy or thick girls but fat girls. It just sits around their chunky arms, neck, and back weird.

Maybe because their weight alone will make them sweaty?

No, what OP said holds truth. Long hair can elongate  fact and make shoulders look slimmer, and short hair can make it look rounder.

So, basically you're telling plus sized girls to hide behind their hair. F--k that. I live in Arizona. It is too damn hot to have long hair, no matter what your weight.

I feel fatter when my hair is short. Even though I'm not fat.

I've always had long hair and always been chunky. Short hair makes my face look fat.

The bigger the hair, the smaller the hips. LOL. I always had long hair. I cut my hair and I admit that I felt bigger. It doesn't fit my face.
