I suppose that's the gist of the question. I have a big belly and massive thighs in particular.

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Sat 12-Nov-16 22:12:42

Anything you fucking want.

As long as you buy the correct size and wear it with confidence you put on what the hell you like.

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 22:26:37

Yeah I was after style ideas

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Sat 12-Nov-16 22:29:43

A line skirts and wrap dresses.

Fine knits.

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 22:31:09

Oh man you're just going to keep doing this aren't you?

PoldarksBreeches Sat 12-Nov-16 22:34:41

You ok hun?

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 22:36:08

Yes thanks I just keep being tormented by the above poster and don't know why sad Anyway any suggestions of decent clothes would be nice!

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Sat 12-Nov-16 22:37:25

Me? How have I tormented you?

I have a big belly and thighs and that's what I go for.


PoldarksBreeches Sat 12-Nov-16 22:38:11

Tormented? hmm

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 22:38:19

You kept doing this on my thread in chat. Posting the same thing over and over.
Swearing at me.
Just leave me alone.

I'm short & round too, so also open to ideas

A tad paranoid, there, Calliiee, and if it's the thread where you wanted suggestions from Sainsburys, no Joffrey did not behave how you described and her username isn't swearing at you, personally.

I think your issue isn't so much what to wear as a need to go and chat with your GP.

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 23:04:55

Look, I am sorry if I seemed to go off the deep end there.

But I started a thread in chat where the poster just seemed to keep telling me to wear something I a) didn't have and b) wouldn't be suitable. Fine post it once but three times?

Then on here I felt like I was being told to shut up. Wear what you want. It felt like I was being followed around and harassed. Being annoyed with someone deliberately trying to twist your threads doesn't mean I have to see my GP!

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Sat 12-Nov-16 23:10:32

Yeah, I'm totally following you around. Don't even recognise your username, dear.

PP might be right about the GP. You didn't go out today because you had nothing to wear. That's quite extreme.

And wrap dresses, a line skirts and fine knits aren't swear words, btw.

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 23:11:54

It really isn't extreme at all. I had nothing to wear. No not even jeans and a long floral top.

CookieDoughKid Sat 12-Nov-16 23:11:56

Have you thought about getting a stylist from John Lewis or Debenhams? Would be worth the fee i think you can claim agsinst cost of clothes. I think really good quality fabric, monochrome or block colours, and fabulous basic shirts and trousers/skirts which you can dress with accessories.

KingJoffreysRestingCuntface Sat 12-Nov-16 23:12:31

I didn't post the same thing three times either. I offered three separate solutions in accordance with your wardrobe.

Tormented, my arse.

How does one block posters? Just in case I accidently reply. I never look at user names.

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 23:12:39

Thanks. I'm on quite a tight budget but thanks.

Donatellalymanmoss Sat 12-Nov-16 23:13:02

Hey calliiee, don't take it personally. I'm not sure people posting even realise they're responding to the same person or how a not badly intended post can some across to someone feeling crap about themselves.

There is however a lot to be said about wearing the right size and also about keeping within your comfort zone and choosing clothes that suit the occasion.

Are you looking for work clothes, casual clothes, particular event?

ThisPasadenaHomemaker Sat 12-Nov-16 23:13:43

I saw your other thread OP and do agree you're overreacting a bit to innocuous posts.

I may be way off the mark here but the only time in my life I cancelled plans because of having "nothing" to wear was when I was my all-time heaviest, refused to buy anything in the size I actually needed and was desperately unhappy. Could that be what is going on?

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 23:13:48

You really did but leave it.

YOU were the one who came on with 'whatever you fucking want' maybe you just randomly speak to people like that I don't know but I wanted advice.

I'm not too short, I'm rather medium height but I'm definitely round. I positively look heavily pregnant with my protruding tummy (bloated) and i have chunky thighs and short legs. So I like trousers and long, bum covering tunics, cardigans with slightly high heels. Whether it looks good or not, I'm not very sure but I can't wear short tops, it looks horrendous, so that's the best style I found I'm comfortable with. I noticed if the fabric is good quality and slightly fitted, then it looks stylish. Also, fitted dress (despite the extra bulges) worn with high heeled knee high boots, looks great. You can wear it with a short cardi-top to break the severe/ heavy look. Despite showing all the extra bulges, the fitted dresses look million times better than shapeless loose items. If the dress is a dark colour (dark purple, for instance), then the short cardi could be a lighter colour (light purple-light violet etc) looks great. Expensive looking accessories make the clothes. That's my humble opinion. I am not the best dressed person at work but I observed a lot, what looks stylish on women with extra weight.

calliiee Sat 12-Nov-16 23:14:28

I honestly had nothing to wear.

I have been in denial about how big I am I guess and none of my dresses fit.
