Dear Fat Girls Wearing Leggings

Dear Fat Girls Wearing Leggings…

Unless you have been hiding under a rock, you know what I am talking about. Leggings are a prominent fashion statement in our society right now. They have even been the topic of some well heated discussions. Everywhere you look, you see girls in leggings. Young girls. Older girls. Teen girls. Skinny girls. Girls wear leggings and they wear them everywhere.

Guess what?

Fat girls wear leggings too and this post is to them.

Who am I kidding.. this post is to me too. I am a fat girl who wears leggings.

Dear fat girls wearing leggings


Stop letting society tell you that you shouldn’t wear leggings
Stop feeling shamed for being fashionable
Stop thinking that you must be a certain size to dress how you want
Stop thinking you can only wear them in your house – Put those leggings on and go outside!
Stop letting others’ preferences dictate your decisions
Stop allowing hypocrites to have double standards
Stop letting society tell you that your leggings are too tight (Newsflash ALL leggings are tight!!)
Stop comparing yourself to somebody else in leggings
Stop letting others’ opinions about your curves define who you are
Stop responding to people’s negative rants about leggings
Stop letting a society that judges people based on their looks tell you your worth
Stop losing self confidence over people who need to gain tact

Most importantly, to all those fat girls wearing leggings: Keep on wearing them!
– please remember tho that nude colored leggings don’t look good on ANYBODY!!-

    I agree with this post. But I almost didn’t click through because of the graphic. Glad I did. But maybe when pinning or sharing say something like (this isn’t want you think) and create intrigue rather then anger)

    I’m not fat, but I’m not skinny and I wear leggings. I live in them. I don’t care what anyone says. I wear longer shirts though for my own fears, but yeah…. I don’t care what anyone says about anything!

    There is so much judging today. People enjoy criticizing everything people wear and it drives me nuts. There are far more important things to worry about.

    When I read this article – I was like – Wait.. what? So.. some people think fat people shouldn’t wear leggings? I mean.. I don’t see anything wrong with it, lol. Wonderful post as a reminder that there is truly nothing wrong in it. So they should just go ahead and wear what they like!

    Fat or thin, there is certain way to wear leggings. I am a fat women and I wear leggings. However, I make sure wear it in such a way that it make my body look good instead of the other way around.

    People should definitely be able to wear what they like, but not every one has to like being subjected to it.

      I don’t like people wearing short shorts but I don’t complain about being subjected to it or make fun of them because of it. Why can’t girls wearing leggings be given the same courtesy?

    I must admit to having mixed reaction to this post. I totally agree that people should wear what they are comfortable wearing and it really isn’t anyone’s business what they choose. However, there is so much hypocrisy and doublespeak when it comes to these things. We judge each other on so many levels and only when it is directed at us personally we realise how it really feels to be judged. I say good for you if you or anyone else who society thinks ought not to wear leggings. Now let us all just leave each other alone – however they choose to dress or not dress.

    Sometimes I roll my eyes at people who think they need to tell others what to wear an do…you are an adult and whatever choices you make they are yours

    Yes! I’m tired of hearing leggings aren’t pants. I think we’re past that point, and leggings have indeed become pants. But yes to no nude colored leggings. Ever.

  11. Laurie

    If you have the confidence to wear them rock it! I won’t too self conscious especially with my post bang body

    I think calling out just fat girls is kinda rude. I have mixed feelings on this post. I personally don’t think anyone needs to were leggings especially nude ones, and how are your legs not freezing in them… but to each their own & I don’t care.

    Love this post. Even if you are fat or not there is no rule saying that only those sexy or good body will able to wear a leggings. We are all free to wear what we want. Its a matter of how you bring the clothes itself.

    I saw some holiday leggings the other day that I really wanted. I didn’t get them though because I thought I was too old to be wearing leggings. You’ve got me rethinking it, and I might just go back in there and get ’em. :)
