Trend for weather/tv presenters to wear very tight clothes. Am I just old?

Is it just me? Even on these slim women, doesn't seem to be a good luck. Tell me I am not alone in these thoughts! Please.

Good LOOK, not good luck, obs...

Maybe it is so they don't obscure the map they are standing in front of. I always think they look quite good.

I really don't like the fashion of skin tight panelled below the knee or just above the knee dresses anyway. It makes everyone look ten years older.

The blonde one on Channel 5 is barely dressed some evenings. Sorry to sound old fashioned but a one shouldered sparkly party dress to do the weather at 6.30 just seems weird!

the BBC breakfast news women always look well put together - Elizabeth Rizzini was dressed well today and she's pregnant.

It's been a trend for a while. It used to be office wear in front of the weather map and it has morphed into going out gear. A few years ago I used to comment that they must be off to a party afterwards but now it's commonplace.
I had to laugh recently when on Countryfile the weatherman wore an open-necked checked shirt.

I only ever see the morning BBC news.

The weather woman on there always has a nice dress on. I would say a day dress- not a going out dress.

Scottish (female) newsreaders and weather presenters always look as if about to go out on the razzle. Except Sally Magnusson.

Carol Kirkwood bucks the trend always nice clothes but she apparently hates the bright colours she has to wear and would prefer black and white etc.

She was featured in Grazia last year as one of their icons.

Some of them look trussed up like a Xmas turkey

There is a very pretty dark haired one whose name escapes that has been talked about on here before. She bends that far backwards it looks painful and her clothes are so tight she can't breathe

I end up feeling worried for her when she is on smile

I think they all have stylists helping them to put together a work wardrobe. Perhaps the stylists wish they were 'doing' Hollywood stars and pick the look accordingly!

Louise Minchin (BBC breakfast) always looks good.

Elizabeth Rizzini irritates the living daylights out of me.

I do like Louise M's dresses recently though.

I always find myself looking at their bras and moaning if I can see the seams!

I am sure I saw some VPL today....

Some clothes do look excessively tight don't they shock

On our local news (Points West) there is a presenter who wears the tightest clothes - she looks really skinny on camera so goodness only knows how thin she is in rl!

They must be under a lot of pressure to keep their weight down.

Never really noticed to be honest. To busy planning my activities around the weather.

janmoomoo Mon 03-Feb-14 17:18:42

Yes. And massively high thin heels too. Incredibly tight bodycon dresses seem to be the order of the day. Sometimes it does look quite inappropriate for the activity they are doing (weather).

Rubybrazilianwax Mon 03-Feb-14 21:56:55

Yes bendy will definitely have a curvature of the spine in her old age. Her tops are far too tight

MamaMary Mon 03-Feb-14 21:59:08

It's ridiculous. And not that professional looking either.

Selks Mon 03-Feb-14 22:15:09

Yes it gets on my wick too. They could look good without having to wear a flesh revealing cocktail bloody dress. <glowers>

Is Carol Kirkwood the weather presenter on BBC? She looks awful. Can't stand her matronly clothes and those terrible 'shrug' cardigans, that do nothing for her figure.

Basically I agree that most presenters wear stuff that is too tight and makes them look blowsy.

You ought to see them on French tv.

seasalt Tue 04-Feb-14 11:00:00 this is our favourite weather presenter in Ireland
