What NOT to Wear - Seriously!

Updated on April 1, 2013

Southern Food, Walmart, and Mirror Nazis: A BAD Combination

I'm convinced that there are more fat folks in the South - I mean, I really love southern food, but it's not exactly low calorie. Rut-roh - I said "fat." To be PC I guess I need to change that to slim-challenged. I don't mind people being f-, oops - slim-challenged. I fit that category myself. Heck, I'm always surrounded by great southern food like fried chicken, pork barbecue, buttermilk biscuits, rice and gravy, cracklin' cornbread...you get the picture. Fat is fine, but it shouldn't be on display. If you're in love with southern food, and your bod shows it, that should be between you, God, and your fried chicken - don't share the results with the innocent and unprepared public. Same goes for the protruding bones of those at the other end of the scale. What I'd like to know is: When were mirrors outlawed in the South? And how come nobody told me about it? That’s the only explanation I have for some of the clothing choices I’ve been seeing lately. I’ve always tried to follow the sage advice of the gifted philosopher, Drew Carey, who said, “If it don’t look good naked, cover it the hell up!”

I’m fat. I know I’m fat – and I have a mirror. I dress accordingly. The only revealing thing I ever wear is a low-cut blouse occasionally, when we go to a party. This is the one part of the female anatomy where most men seem to prefer “fat.” Somehow the looking-glass Nazis overlooked the mirrors in my house and did not confiscate them. Unfortunately, many citizens in the South were not so lucky. Somewhere there’s a huge warehouse filled to the brim with mirrors of every sort, probably ironically stacked next to cases of the 6,425 varieties of babecue sauces we southerners consume regularly. The former mirror owners are in a state of total denial without the constant reminders of their own reflected images.

For some strange reason, the mirror-challenged in the South seem to frequent Walmart…a lot. They're probably loading up on pork ribs, hams, Boston butts, and hog lard. You can see a few of them in there most any time of day, but to witness the really hardened image criminals in large numbers, you’ll need to go to the retail giant at around two or three in the morning. That’s when the truly delusional come out. I suppose they think the cover of darkness will hide them, but unfortunately, inside the store are glaring bright lights that hide nothing.

On any of my typical wee-hours shopping adventures to Wally World, there’s no telling what I might see in the way of bad apparel. I usually see several huge middle-aged women who have crammed their size 12 extra-extra-wide feet into size 8 narrow high heels. The results resemble dough rising up and over the shoes in the flesh’s effort to escape its bonds. Sometimes these ladies can barely hobble around in these “cruel shoes,” but hey, they think they look good, and beauty knows no pain.

And speaking of pain, what’s up with all these really fat women and spandex? Do they think hot pink skin-tight spandex is slimming?? That kind of outfit just has to be painful. I mean really, I don’t see how some of them breathe. It seems that circulation to important parts of their body would be severely restricted.

And then there's the pajama crowd. They show up to shop in their jammies and bedroom slippers. It's as if they woke up suddenly from a sound sleep and thought, "I must go to Walmart! Now! I don't have time to throw on some clothes!" What could be so important that would prevent one from getting dressed to appear in public??

Evidently, The Dukes of Hazzard must have a cult following here in the Deep South. You know how Trekkies go to those nerdy conventions and dress up like their favorite Star Trek characters? Walmart must be the gathering site for Hazzard aficionados, and they’re all fans of the same character – Daisy Duke. How have I come to this conclusion? Because they’re all wearing a pair of Daisy Dukes. For non-U.S. readers who aren’t familiar with this particular article of clothing, let me explain. Daisy Dukes are cut-off bluejean shorts – “shorts” being the key word. These things are so short that the lower half of the wearer’s ass cheeks hang out the bottom. Yeah, these might look sexy on Daisy, but the women I’m referring to would make at least three of Ms. Hazzard.

A close relative of the Daisy Duke short shorts is the Southern garment known as the "Bermuda-all." Bermuda-alls are overalls that have been cut off to make shorts. For the perfect fashion statement, apparently ill-fitting tank tops are the only tops that can be worn underneath a pair of Bermuda-alls.

And one more thing about the Walmart mirrorless crowd: Why the midriff tops? Weren’t they designed to show off a flat, taut belly? Perhaps one with six-pack abs? I don’t think the original designer meant for them to serve as a showcase for displaying gunts and twattermelons. I’ve seen plenty of women wearing these short tops who had more rolls than Parkerhouse.

And I can't leave the guys out. Here in the South, we have what's commonly referred to as the MMM - the manly male midriff. It's a tee shirt that is much too small to cover a ginormous beer gut, so it stops somewhere above the navel. Since men are notrious for buying jeans to fit under their bellies, there's always a big gap of exposed flesh between the top of the jeans and the bottom of the shirt. Ironically, many of these tees say "No fat chicks." If only they had a mirror...

Okay, enough about Walmart. Let’s examine another venue where clothing miscalculations are rampant: the beach. Ironically (and thankfully so), the slim-challenged around here seem to get suddenly modest and conservative when going to the beach. Go figure. It’s usually the opposite end of the spectrum who decide to eschew the advice of the venerable Mr. Carey. Here, it’s the old bony folks who want to show off their svelte bods. You see, in the South, some older folks don't have teeth, so they can't eat the southern food favorites any longer. As a result, they often get skinny. Gerbers doesn't make a "southern barbecue" flavor.

My husband and I once witnessed a perfect male body contest in Nassau, where plenty of gorgeous male hunks were competing. They all had bulging muscles, broad shoulders, and glistening sun-kissed skin, and I must admit, I was enjoying all the eye candy. Then from the back of the crowd the last contestant appears. He had to be at least 85 years old – seriously - and much to my embarrassment, we later discovered that he was a southerner. He paraded out onto the stage in a muscle shirt and a pair of long swim trunks, and I thought it was kinda cute. But then he began stripping off his clothes in time to the music. I was horrified and tried not to look, but my eyes were glued to him. It’s like passing a bad wreck on the highway – you don’t really want to see all the blood and gore, but something compels you to gawk. The old guy ended up with just a tiny Speedo. He closely resembled a little white sheet in bad need of ironing.

And then there are the old ladies at the beach who are so skinny that they have absolutely no butt or boobs, yet they insist on wearing the smallest g-string they can find. When your hip bones stick out farther than your boobs, you’re too skinny. When you can store change and other small items in the wrinkles on your body, you don’t need to be in a thong. When you can count every rib on a body and even the breast bone, you’re too skinny to be showing off your body! I don’t want to see old Grim Reaper-types in bikinis or Speedos any more than I want to see Jabba the Hut-types in revealing clothing. Heck, I just want to buy the bony ones a hotdog or some fried fatback or something else equally calorie laden.

A public high school is another venue rampant in clothing crimes. When I was teaching, I got soooo tired of seeing the underwear of "cool, hip" male students. The waist of their jeans would somehow hug the lower section of their buttocks, defying gravity. Thank God their boxers were snug enough to spare me the view of their bare asses. Frankly, I'm rather surprised I never got charged with sexual harassment - as they entered my classroom, and I was standing by my doorway, I'd always reach over, grab a belt loop, and pull up their pants. And the girls were just as bad - maybe worse. As I would stroll around the room with my students seated, 99% of the females were showing off their "coin slots" and thongs above their oh-so-low-hung jeans. Wonder what I would have received if I had dropped in a quarter? Fired, probably!

Hmmm…can’t get those ribs out of my mind. Think I’ll go get some good ole southern barbecue!

      How True! I went to the mall two days ago, and the manikins look like they all shrunk to a size zero. I'm a fairly small person, but ..give me a break! If you go to the woman's department, the clothes are all plain, and old looking. I think I have some of those same clothes in my closet from years ago. Who ever designs the clothes obviously never wore them. I agree, some people should just stay away from spandex! Very Funny, keep Hubbing!

      Great Commentary, I had a hub similar to this in the chute, but your version tops what I was writing, filed mine with the mirrors.

      “Twattermelons” now that’s funny, God I love “Southern Speak,” we really are a creative lot when it comes to vocabulary.

      Your hub reminds me of the lady I heard say somewhere, “her favorite store was Dollar General,” she liked it better than Walmart because “you didn’t have to get all dressed up to go like you do for Wally World”

      Very funny stuff, keep it up and I’ll invite you to my next redneck birthday party.

      This was one of the funniest pieces that I've read in a long time. By the way it's not just down south, it's all over. Here in sunny So. Cal, believe me it's worse. And we get it all year long. Skinny here is worshiped, so your observation about the beach bunnies are really prevalent here. More, more, more!

      I am fairly new to the HubPages. So new, I still have not written a Hub yet. Instead, I am reading about Hubbers and what they have to say.

      Lady, I must tell you, that your Hub I just read is so well written, I am still laughing.

      You have a talent few have, never forget.

      The way you write is so unique, you are an original thinker.

      Keep on Hubbing, so one day, your healing words will be published as they should.

      You style of writing is so out there, you touched me deeply.

      Few do.

      You have a talent and a knack, never forget. We need people like you to inspire us to surpass our daily challenges.

      Great hub. I will confess I hate the baggy pants halfway down the boxer shorts look most. I know I would be arrested as some kind of pervert if I ever walked up to some kid and pulled their pants up, but it's still tempting. My next-most hated look is the wrinkly-skinned old-lady fitness freaks, parading around in string bikinis, the skin on their bony flesh radiating with a pre-cancerous glow from too many hours spent in a tanning booth. I realize I'm not really talking fashion here, but every time I see one of these ladies I wince.

      Thanks for your post, I'm still laughing.

      This is a great hub, funny but true.

      Unfortunately, some people with distorted body images don't see themselves as they really are when they look into the mirror.

      As for the baggy pants half way down the boxer shorts and the thongs sticking out over of too low rise jeans, I console myself with the knowledge that like all outrageous fashion fads this too shall pass.

      We live in a classless society! People show little or no class these days. I enjoy watching old movies and seeing old photos of teh past. Imagine, men and women actually taking time to dress well. we have gone from men wearing sport jackets, ties, and stylish headwear to the slob and grunge look.

      The rock band ZZ Top had a song entitled " Sharp Dressed Man ". Daily we see men wearing ballcaps sideway and backward and wrong ways. Newsflash!!! Wearing hats indoor is considered rude and rube.

      Most men today look like train wrecks. No belts, dirty shoes, miss match clothes and ungroomed. He see people dining out like pigs at a slurry trough. Children are also lost in etiquettes. Foul mouthed and little manners, the parents are simply not fit to raise our future generation.

      Many American women are just as bad. Latino women will say how they enjoy being "feminine" while the average American woman goes out looking like a scene from " Night Of The Living Dead". No makeup, shabby stained clothes, and unkept hair. Imagine Marlyn Monroe or Greta Garbo being seen as a slob.

      We also see people trying to pull off looks that are criminal compared to the ones who can pull of fashion statements. Like the mobidly overweight guy on the beach wearing Speedos or the severely out of shape woman trying to impersonate a pin up.

      I would like to see schools bring back community dress standards and implement a class on self respect and throw in Emily Post's "Book Of Etiquette."

      geekchick 7 years ago

      I don't care if you're skinny or fat, I don't want to see your thong sticking out of your pants. I don't mind seeing anyone wearing low cut jeans, but come on, either wear a shirt long enough to pull down over the pants, or wear a belt so that nothing is exposed. Seriously, who wants to look at that?

      Spandex. Ugh. I'm thin and I won't even wear spandex. I'm convinced you have to have the absolute right body to pull that look off. I wish instead of removing all mirrors someone would remove all spandex. Then we wouldn't have to worry about people stuffing themselves into spandex pants. Yuck.

      Funny, but sadly it's all true. I think our mind is much more powerful than our eyes in creating what we think we look like. You've touched on most of my pet peeves. Of course another thing that makes me shake my head is people, women in particular, who wear their hair the same way they did when they were teenagers and now they are 50. It's long, fried, and nasty ....complete with the combs, and scrunchies that were popular 30 years ago. I want to take a razor to their heads sooo bad.

      You are absolutly right! Especially concerning the youth of America these days with their low slung clothing. And when did they stop making womens shirts that came to the belt line? Dunno!!! I too own a mirror and being a classy southern woman myself, I completely agree that maybe they should look in the home furnishings department the next time they visit WalMArt and buy one for themselves!!!

      That was hilarious.I still bear the scars as a teenager of seeing a woman who must have weight 250lbs wearing a haltar top.

      And then there are the young men who wear pants with the ass hanging down to their knees...

      Love this hub! We have fashion offenders up here in the North, too. As a large woman myself, I always get annoyed when plus size women wear tops that show off flabby, untoned arms. I know MINE need to be covered ... and I don't want to see theirs!

      I loved this hub.

      It's so true. People should learn to wear what looks good on their body. Some girls would look so much thinner if they covered more or simply bought a bigger size that wasn't so tight on them.

      I'm perfectly fine buying a size up if it looks better. Size doesn't matter, look does.

      Great hub!

      By far the worst 'fashion sin' that so many Americans make is to wear white sox with shoes. In Europe only the worst rednecks and truck drivers do that. It's a no-no, unless you're Micheal Jackson.:)

      I always feel so sorry for the kids with their "hinnies" showing. In Walmart I once told a girl that she was "hanging all out behind." I began with a compassionate, "Oh honey!" She jumped up, and with the saddest face imaginable she told me, "I know." Then she ran away. Poor thing. She just needed someone to tell her that she didn't have to follow the crowd. She had no idea what to do with herself. And she is just one of many. But how can the the girls know what to do with their moms dressing like harlots when they go to work?

      I loved your hub and now I have to throw my two cents worth in. My first dressing pet peeve is the mother who trys to dress as young as her teenage daughter and competes for attention with her. Bad mom!! I have also noticed a lot of people lately going to the store in their bedroom slippers and pajama bottoms. You might as well tattoo the word "lazy" on your forehead. Ok, I'm done ranting...

      I am from India and though I obvserve some of this Strip dress worn by some US Indians at temple the place of worship by Hindus. When they prostrate before God they offer themseves completely like our old Deva dasies system - the women who offer themselves in the service of God and live by their fine arts and sex to selected few elite.

      At such sites I really wonder the wisdom of design of Indian sarees which suit every one lean, bulky, sexsual, and pious and devoted alike.

Sometimes I go out and see these kids and wonder Do you even have a Mom. What are they thinking? Well the answer is they don't think, about what they wear or how they look. It would be funny if it weren't so pitiful. Thanks for making me laugh, I only wish the ones who need to read it were reading it! Keep it coming girl.

      What puzzles me beyond extreme "situations" like the ones you've shown is the people who would otherwise look absolutely great if they didn't "create" flaws by doing something like creating "muffin tops" that wouldn't even exist if they wore their pants a size bigger or their top an inch longer. A lot of these people (often young women) couldn't even "pinch an inch" if they didn't gather up whatever fat they can find and squeeze it out the top of their pants. :) Why do that - I wonder....

      Thank you for that validating and hilareous hub. I laughed so hard, I had tears!

      My mother went to finishing school (here in New England) and taught me that, no matter what size you were, you could look stylish and flatter your figure.

      I am always amazed at the teens I see at the mall. Did their mothers actually let them out of the house like that? Then I went to a Photo/modeling/school information session and saw the mothers. Now, these were mothers who presumably were there to get their kids "in"! Can you say flip flops, dirty feet, and sweatpants?

      Wow great Hub! This reminds me of a few months ago I went into Wal Mart (In the middle of a snow storm) and there was no joke a middle aged lady wearing a mini skirt, black tank top---that was basically a belly shirt to her because she had sqeezed into about 3 sizes down. Then she was in heels!! I was completely baffled. Wake up America! Where is the professionalism?

      Thank you so much! I can't imagine how some people leave their houses looking like who-knows-what, and think they look fabulous. I saw a young lady at Wal-Mart in a two sizes-too small knit backless dress, with rolls for days in the front and back. Oh, and let me not forget the beige bra showing in this backless dress. I wanted to ask her who ok'd her outfit, Stevie Wonder, or Ray Charles (in his deceased state, no less, rest his soul). I keep trying to tell them, everybody can't wear everything. Thanks for putting this one out there.

      Good Hub!!!

      The whole hub is very much enjoyable and informative. The author gave a prime focus on beauty as quoted in the hub such as I usually see several huge middle-aged women who have crammed their size 12 extra-extra-wide feet into size 8 narrow high heels. The results resemble dough rising up and over the shoes in the flesh’s effort to escape its bonds. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful peace of text.

      Absolutely 'To The Point' hub! I fail to understand why the men and women of this world will continue to try and act like they were years younger. Clothes are the worst sufferers, naturally.

      Most of such fat asses need to go on a healthy diet and stick to their age when it comes to dressing up. Wish them the very best, and lots of funtime to the others!

And i also don't like seeing girls or ladies showing parts of the body that shouldn't be shown. i mean, respect begets respect, if ladies out there want respect then i think they should all start by watching what they wear.

      I got tired of shopping at the malls; where the clothes have no style and design. But then most of other boutiques and shops are outrageously overpriced. So I decided to do something about it instead of complaining. I created my own fashion online store. www.mitteclothing.com. I launched it 2 weeks ago and hope to add a lot more inventory by the next month in late April. Some of the clothes that I have ordered are en route as we speak..

    • Nellieanna profile image

      Nellieanna Hay 7 years ago from TEXAS

      Before I added my comments and compliments, I just had to read all the other comments, some of which are pretty good reading too! Habee you've made a grim subject absolutely hilarious. I was laughing all the way through - your presentation is fabulous! But it is grim, how people go around looking these days!

      And by the way - my friend De Greek steered me to this delightful article (he has a nose for the good ones!) He could have had no idea how it "spoke to me", though!

      With two older sisters to make sure I didn't make boo-boos, a mother who sewed beautifully & my own sewing & designing bent, what else but to pay attention? My sister had me working on posture at 12 or 13 - the book-on-the-head bit, proper walking, everything. Today's teens slouch and slump like senile old-timers!

      I was making my clothes by 13 & was taught to use the fine details used in couture construction. In home ec. classes at school we HAD to take a picture in a bathing suit in front of a full-length mirror and study it to determine what kind of clothes and patterns would do our bodies the most good! Very eye-opening! A good weight for the height doesn't guarantee that all the proportions are perfect! Knowing what there is to work with helps know what to do to accentuate the positive and eliminate the negative, as the old song goes! There are things one can or cannot do with figure problems!

      Obviously kids (or their mothers) today have no earthly idea of the jarring pictures they present. But then again, I suppose it would be jarring to them to see one their age who had some sense of style instead. The rule of the peers!

The late forty and early fifty something moms, with their bright blond hair teased to the hilt, dark tans, and teen-age girl mini skirts, and wrinkly legs is too much. But not as bad as tiny daisy dukes on a huge body. Thanks for a great laugh.

I couldn't believe the woman that I saw yesterday, in her mid 40's, showing off a tattoo that she had on her lower back - all this with 5 inches of fat sticking our of her three sizes too small shirt. (Wow, I just got a great idea for the Stormy Nights Contest). Anyway, thanks for publishing.

Also, as I've grown older, my game is to work out like crazy, look as good as possible, but still show as little as possible. Regardless of what shape you are in, it is actually tacky to show a lot of skin in public most of the time, even for the young. This dealt with a serious problem with humor, and I laughed all the way through it. My modem should be here today or tomorrow, so hopefully, I'll be able to read and respond to hubs when I'm not at work soon. Thanks for making me laugh, this one is a hoot. (: v

      Due to a comment a friend put oh her facebook yesterday, I was going to write a hub on this very subject, but I see you covered it quite well. I will share the comment:

      Today I saw a women at the gas station..her appearance scared the hell out of me, she was wearing a pair of white daisy dukes(I could cover the couch in) and what I can only assume was once a white sports bra. (Assume because it is now a dull Grey) her flip flops had red and white balloons (something that was in fashion 3 or 4 years ago for children) on them her hair was in 2 side pony tails (she was 'rockin' the Buffy's) mind u she was at Least my age (in 40's) and had to weigh in at about 400 lbs... my question ( well one of them anyways) did this beast not own a mirror???

      Yes, habee even here in the North the Mirror Nazi's have apparently visited, and run rampant with stealing mirrors.

Ever since the PeopleofWalmart blog started, I have been hoping I can capture something or someone hilarious with my pocket camera when I'm shopping there myself. You can't beat the combination of shopping and entertainment you get, especially late at night. Fun stuff! Oh - and one other term I hear for the excessive frontal blubber is "front butt."

      Mirror-challenged, hah!!! Awesome. I find it more entertaining to go downtown on a Friday or Saturday night, park myself at a sidewalk table, and just watch instead of bellying up. Most of the gals look like they walked straight off the set of Jerry Springer. It's ridiculous. I think...how on earth did you look in the mirror before you left and think "damn, I look good" and head out confidently in electric blue spandex? really?

      I'm with you 100%.

      OMG this is so funny. I could actually see the people as you were describing them. And then you posted pics and I laughed even more after I got over the shock of the thong pic on the beach. That takes some really high self-esteem to pull that look off. I will be back to read some more. Take care.

      Thanks for several good chuckles! I too have often wondered 'where have all the mirrors gone?'. However, you left out low-rider jeans, and that they should NEVER EVER be worn by any woman with more than a smidge of belly fat. But then I think the fatties buy them for the same reason guys like to wear under-the-beer-belly jeans - so they can remain in denial about the true size of their girth. My local Wally World, btw, at any time of day or night is an never-ending supply of what NOT to wear beyond your front door.

      It is amazing how people don't give one hoot about how they look in public. These people have to be blind or totally delusional. I have seen many people dressed or should I say sort of dressed as you have described. What I have seen mostly in my area are people wearing shorts or pants that are so baggy, that half of their butts are hanging out. Fruit of the Loom underwear is getting a lot of free advertising. Also, these people can hardly walk since the pants are so baggy that it bunches up at the knees or ankles. I wonder how these people hold jobs or even get jobs looking like slobs! A couple municipalities in our area have even passed ordinances against teens, the main culprits doing this, from wearing extremely baggy trousers.

      The young guys wearing those baggy pants won't think it's "cool" when they're old men and HAVE to wear pants two sizes too big to hide their Depends. heehee

      Oo, Habee. That was hillarious. I loved the term "slim-challenged". Though I am not one now, but I still prefer to cover my body parts to avoid it from falling off my clothes. I really appreciate the way you have expressed the bad clothing styles. I laughed really louder and this is one of the very few hubs that made me laugh. Great hub. Thats it or I will write another hub here in comments.

      JS Teddy Bear shoes 5 years ago

      Asics wrestling footwear slide on your feet for example slippers and they sense so light-weight and soft.These footwear are likewise immaculate for essentially any sort of martial arts.When I wear them, it really is as if I am wearing nothing at all.Most individuals take pro wrestling gear for granted.They Adidas Jeremy Scott are really exclusively planned and Adidas Porsche Bounce S manufactured maintaining the requirement of the athletics in mind.I was very excited when I found these handy, flexible shoes.Personally, I am Adidas Porsche Bounce SL much more curious about the martial arts side of activities so I'd in all probability much more excited by women's MMA.

      When I used to be taking Karate lessons, I came upon this phenomenal footwear for the primary time.You'll recognize that some athletes are donning Asics wrestling shoes should you pay shut notice of martial arts practitioners.In various instances, it may show useful whilst in other situations, it may show highly problematic.Of course, I will not go far to the extent of sating that basically donning ASICS wrestling shoes will guaranty you success, but i'll become bold a sufficient quantity to say that these footwear have got a great deal of Adidas Porsche Design Golf characteristics which are critical to assisting you win the match.Anyway, I even have been a practitioner of martial arts for a number years now.I actually true love the excellent grip that Asics wrestling shoes provide.However, this is oftentimes the results of attempting to present a certain gimmick or appearance.I think that a lot of guys desire to ascertain a woman version of UFC.Sports may be adidas jeremy scott shoes tiring and in case you do not wear the best shoes, you will discover too high probabilities of you possessing foot disorders.In a short interval Adidas Jeremy of time, I noticed that they were much better fitted to the task than any Adidas Porsche Bounce S2 normal designer sneaker.As traditional ASICS Shoe Business has come up with one of many most gargantuan "trick" to doing well in wrestling matches.That stands for mixed martial arts, if you're not acquainted with the acronym.The Asics wrestling shoes are especially created for the martial arts practitioners.That usually means they assume that a wrestler can easily put on Adidas Porsche Design Bounce anything he wants within the ring.Whereas wrestling, you ought to put on shoes may possibly be comfortable, durable and that can take in any sort JS Teddy Bear shoes of shock.That is why it is better to buy professional wrestling gear that aids Adidas JS Wings 2.0 in aiding one's performance in the ring whereas avoiding the problems inherent to wearing the incorrect gear.One of the stuff that I even have discovered is that Asics wrestling shoes are not simply impressive for wrestling.And, honestly, one can find certain wrestlers that do just about wear what type they want.
