Do you think being fat affects the choice of women's clothes?

    Everyday I come across women who think they're more than the anticipated body figures - they call themselves fat, chubby and everything else that's round.

    When I talk to these women I also feel that they are not really comfortable in choosing the clothes that are too skinny for their body shapes, or are too revealing.

    You ask why?

    because they think that these clothes make them look horrible.

    While my personal view is that a woman should embrace her body and her curves without feeling awkward about them. As far as clothing is concerned they should be able to make the choice of their clothes without feeling the need to shed a few kilograms. A plus size woman is just as beautiful as the one who has her body abs; therefore, I believe being fat shouldn't have affect the choice of clothes.

    What do you have to say about it?

    Suggestions open from all - I am not gender biased.

      I think regardless of what your body type, skin tone or whatever is, it's going to affect how you dress in some way or another. For example, if you're a fat guy buying a suit, then you're obviously not going to be interested in buying mostly slim fitting suits that barely fit you.  And if you're a skinny guy, then you're not going to be buying mostly baggy suits that hang off your body. 

      However, personal choice and interests also affect how we dress as well.  For example.  If you're a goth punk rock person, then you might be more inclined to buy stuff from "Hot Topic" than you would say a "men's wharehous" or whatever.   It just depends on the person, and what their interests are in some cases.

      To answer your question again though, "yes" i do think body type does play a role in how a person dresses, but I don't think it's the only factor though.

      Is "being fat" politically correct terminology?? We all have different body types based on genetics. They say if you want to know how your wife look will look when she is older, check out mom. Same for women and their husbands: look at Dad. The point is, the ideal body type and weight is hard to control through diet and exercise. It is best to not worry about the look of your body and just go for health. Caring about the look of your body will lead to eating disorders and being overly concerned with the outer aspects of life rather than the inner. What are your interests, passions, goals, ambitions? Focus on your soul and spirit, rather than outside appearances. Dress to please others or your role in life and then let it go. And if you are a teacher, please dress appropriately. These days teachers dress too provocatively or too casually. A well groomed, dignified appearance is the best for those in a position of authority.

    Body type is nature and lifestyle combined.  If people are happy as they are, that is what matters.  But change is possible for most, if they are not satisified.

    I don't think being fat should affect the choice of someone's decision in clothing. If someone is happy wearing something, then that is what really matters. The only factor is the size of the cloth which the woman wears that matter because everyone is supposed to wear clothes which fit their body and are comfortable with
