Does this dress make me look fat?

Asked by blueberry_kid (5580 points ) August 26th, 2011

You know when a women asks a man “does this make me look fat?” ... what is it that “makes you look fat”? For me, pencil skirts. <shudder> I look like a walrus.

Boxy or baggy sweaters. Something about a sweater, if it doesn’t lay close to the skin, it makes me look ridiculously chunky.

Pullover sweaters. I’m pretty flat chested and my waist is only a little bit smaller than my hips. I’m kind of shaped like a boy, so if I put on a sweater, it looks like my chest, waist and hips are just one big entity with no definition, even though I’m not a big girl.

No….but the triple cheeseburger in your mitts does. Super-size it for greater effect!

@blueberry_kid sorry, I am just going to have to ask an immediate spin off question…

Any person who feels the need to even ask that already knows the answer. It’s the same thing as saying “I’m going to put you on the spot right now”.

Details, folks.

Probably everything, since I’m a tad overweight to begin with. Well, more than a tad, actually. I don’t sweat it too much, though.

Recently I tried on a top that I thought would really suit my well-endowed chest. It was one of those cross-over shirts, and I’d been wanting one forever. It looked horrible! Not that it made me look fat, exactly, more like a misshapen lump of clay. Not a good look for me.

Women generally won’t ask if they look “fat”, more like if their bums look big or if it hangs rght around the hips. No different from a man asking if his suit “sits well.” It’s just chitter chatter between couples whose opinion is welcomed/trusted.

Anything that is tight against my legs. I have wide hips, so when something is snug going down along my legs, they look really wide and it make me look fat (in my opinion).

I am an average built but have disproportionately big boobs so any top or shirt that is not a V neck makes me look huge. Not just my boobs but gives the illusion of me being huge all over!! It’s so odd. I love turtle neck sweaters and think they look very pretty but I can’t wear them for this very reason.

I also look bad in baggy jeans. I’m slightly hippy so it makes me look GIANT if the jeans are not hugging the rest of my leg.
