Limit #16: fat girls shouldn’t wear stripes.
This limit never really bothered me before, because I don’t like stripes. Horizontal, vertival, thick, thin; doesn’t matter. I do not like them.
But then I was out shopping, and I spotted this:
It’s totally stripey. About as stripey as they come. And yet, I instantly wanted it.
After years of being told fat people shouldn’t wear stripes I was sure it would look awful. But being stubborn and contrary as I am, I picked it up and tried it on anyway.
The reaction wasn’t even “well it’s nice, but see how it makes your hips/bum/chest/arms/other random body part look. Ugh.” – I tried it on, looked myself up and down, and thought “heck, yes!”. Then I bought it.
Now I don’t really want to take it off.
I think you’ll find I can wear stripes. I’m actually finding it quite difficult to stop!
