hey there guys. :) skinny jeans are just so in right now, right? well, some of my friends, well, some of my mean friends once saw a, well, pretty chubby girl wearing skinny jeans and they were all like "that girl should not be wearing that. she's looking like she has "fat jeans" instead of "Skinny jeans" on". :P i really felt bad because of that because i feel kinda bad that my friends are so mean. :( i mean, everyone has the right to wear skinny jeans, right?

Hey that's not fair... Everyone has a right to wear skinny jeans, even fat girls. Girls can be really mean sometimes, like that movie "mean girls", well did you say anything to them... I mean did you say, "girls, that is so mean", I mean we can always better our friends. I am very quick to point out when my friends say something really shallow or mean...Then they usually get an embarrassed look on their face, and pretty much learn from their errors. Anyway, fat girls can look good too, it's a myth that only skinny girls look good in skinny jeans, yeah, sure they're called skinny jeans but so what.... I've seen some fat girls with more style than some skinny girls, myself. But of course that being said, everyone should dress according to their body type, I guess the best way to wear skinny jeans on a heavy body would be to wear it with one of those long tops with a belt cinched at the waist to give a curve. You just gotta know what looks good on ya. It has to be trendy but it also has to be your thing..

yes, i now. it really isnt fair. i told my friends "hey, dont be like that. you shouldnt make fun of other's physical appearance" and then they went "yeah, right. but that girl looks really funny, admit it. " after that, i just kept my mouth shut. :P you know, i really wanted to go after that girl and tell her that she should wear jeans according to her body type, so that she will look good and so that nobody would go around making fun of her. i really wanted to, but i guess there are just times when we cant do those things we want, and mostly because of pressure, and mine was peer pressure that time.

Well, I guess there is only so much you can do, in some situations like these, but just the fact that you cared enough to stand up for a stranger is really cool! And hey, even though you wanted to go up to her, and tell her that stuff, I'm not sure if she would've taken the good but unsolicited advice in good spirit. So in this case, you pretty much did your best..

aww. :) thank you so much for telling me that. :) anyway, you are right, i thought of that too, that maybe that girl might take me wrongly if ever i approached her that time. she might think that i am one of the people who were making fun of her. :P

haha...so sad...skinny jeans and lowrise jeans really bring out the best and worst in your shape...i did see some girls with infamous "muffin tops" wearing skinny jeans that is not their size...but it's the trend, and people should wear what they like wearing, and it's fine...as long as it doesn't offend people around you. lowrise jeans, often times can expose things that you don't want to see, too... xquisite http://www.xquisite.us

haha, yeah, i know what youmean with lowrise jeans showing what they're not supposed to show. some of my friends can get so mean when they see someone who is "showing" something not so pleasant with the lowrise jeans. *sigh* my friends can be like "mean girls" sometimes. lolz.

Well, they shouldn't have been mean about it, and you're right, we can all wear what we want. Whether what we pick to wear will look good on us is a different matter. I don't think that skinny jeans flatter all body types, they do make your legs look slimmer and longer, but I guess if you're a bit on the heavy side, they may emphasize the wrong things. Bootcut pants are always better if you're full figured. Then again, kudos to that girl for wearing skinny jeans proudly without caring what anyone else thinks, I think that confidence to wear what you want is much better than not trying something because you're scared of what other people might think.

yes, yes, i agree. kudos to the chubby girl who was wearing that pants because she was so brave and it was so cool of her to wear whatever she wanted. without caring about what other people might say. but somehow, some people are just too harsh and maybe at one time or another, her feelings might have gotten hurt and i dont want it to be that way. :P

Well, everyone does have a right to wear them of course, but it's always best to wear clothing that is flattering for your body. It was quite mean for your friends to say that, but I would guess that choice of pants probably wouldn't look very good on a heavier person. Of course people don't have to go and point that out... Nobody can really decide what kind of clothes that girl wears except her, but hopefully next time she'll pick an outfit that flatters her figure and shows off her good points. That way she will look nice and nobody will have any reason to point out something bad about her.

I'm thin and I own about 5 pairs or skinny jeans. I love them because they fit me so well, it's difficult to find jeans that fit me properly because I am so thin. But people who are bigger than others have the right to wear skinny jeans, heck they have the right to wear whatever jeans they want to! It's just that it may not be the right look for them because it puts their body out of proportion.

hey no skinny jeans are pretty much for most body types. every one should just wear a top that compliments them. and it doesnt mean that thin or long legged girls dont have perfect proportioned hips!! u noe what i mean they can look like an elephant too!! take care

well, you can wear it if you are fat but I think it looks better in thin girls, but I think it would depend on what you call fat.
