Despite her use of "l33t lingo" spelling, I still admired her for posting that she IS in fact, plus size, and that she isn't afraid to admit it. I look at the answers for the places people put... and I was SHOCKED AND APPALED!
Here are some various responses of about 20 similar ones that I read
"ummmmm.....if you need PLUS size skinny jeans i would say DON'T wear skinny skinny jeans it will jsut make you look more hubby no offence but its the truth !! "
"isn't that an oxymoron... plus size skinny jeans?"
"if you need plus sizes ... don't go for the "skinny jean" look "
"sorry but skinnny jeans do NOT look good on fat people"
Just comment after comment of useless, mean, rude critisisms that are not constructive at all!
so this is exactly what I told those people!
"OH MY GOD! I cannot believe how rude these people are.
DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT let them get you down! SKINNY JEANS, despite their name, are GREAT for plus size gals like us! Just because we are real women who LOOK like real woman instead of prepubescent boys does not, in fact, mean we are not intitled to look awesome.
Torrid has a great selection, and they also have some very cute bright colored skinny jeans.
For the rest of you "skinny" people out there, why don't you go buy yourself a doughnut, look up torrid. com, and SEE how "bad" us FATTIES look in skinny jeans.
We rock our rolls and we probably look better than you doing it. So unless you have something USEFUL to say, don't, because you just make a complete *** of yourself [which is odd, since you probably don't have an *** at all].
GROW UP and realize that just because heroin chic is "in" at the moment, doesn't mean your broom handle body will always be in.
The "normal" weight will keep dropping, and so will the dead bodies of all the girls trying to keep up with the impossible standards set on us, and soon enough, the "healthy" look will be back to where it should be, which is what us plus size girls look like now!

MY BRAIN, which very few of you seem to have."
PEOPLE ARE JUST SO MEAN!I don't understand it at all!
AND THE MEDIA... MY GOD! WHAT DO THEY WANT?!
They look at a someone like Britany Spearse and say something like "Has brittany put on a few pounds? Is she pregnant? Is she preparing for a role as a whale?" AND THEN, when she starts doing drugs and drinking and gets skinny as hell, what they SAID they want her to be, they put out things like "brittany is unhealthy skinny, she is starving herself, WHY WOULD SHE DO THIS? maybe its because of boyfriend trouble"
ARE THEY REALLY THAT STUPID?! The media puts such impossibly high standards on what is beautiful and what is normal and what is healthy, and then when the people who WERE healthy try to get down to a size 2 by puking up every salad they eat finally ATTAIN that 110 lb body the MEDIA told them they should have, the media comes out with ANOTHER THING saying "whats wrong with kids today? why are they bulemic and annorixic? Is it their home lives? Is it the models and actresses"?
YES, ITS THE MODELS AND ACTRESSES WHO ARE ONLY THAT SKINNY BECAUSE YOU TOLD THEM THEY HAD TO BE!
I AM A FATTY, but I am DAMN healthy and I am damn proud.
I am 5'9", 190 lbs, a size 18 with a 36DD bra size and a size 10 shoe. I am a HUGE girl, but I am healthier than most of those 100 lb 5'3" girls with a size double 0. I LOVE fruit, and salads, and veggies. I'm a vegetarian who goes on walks and jogs and rides bikes and I'm STILL fat. I don't know why, but thats the way I am.
AND THESE PEOPLE HAVE THE AUDACITY TO TELL ME THAT I'M NOT HEALTHY AND THAT I NEED TO WORK OUT AND EAT BETTER OR WHATEVER THE HELL THEY WILL SAY NEXT?!
Well I will NOT starve myself and I will NOT throw up everything I eat and I will NOT succumb to the standards society has unfairly placed on women. I will also NOT ACCEPT ANYONE ANYWHERE TELLING A PLUS SIZE GIRL THAT SHE IS FAT AND UNHEALTHY AND CAN'T WEAR WHATEVER SHE PLEASES WHENEVER SHE PLEASES!
If there are any bigger girls out there right now, KNOW that you are BEAUTIFUL and you are NOT disgusting and you are NOT freaks of nature. You can be beautiful, and you can be cute, and you can be SEXY AS HELL, BECAUSE CURVES are what women have, and CURVES are what make it possible for a woman to bring LIFE into this world!
SO YEA! I'm done with my rant. ... GRRR!

you go girl beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and colors
its not fair the way the media has brainwashed all these adults and lets not forget little girls to into thinking they have to conform to a certain standard of beauty not everyone wants to be skinny half the time those models have their pics airbrushed anyways
when will everyone realize we all look the same when the lights go out
and it doesnt matter if 190 109 your only as beautiful as the person you project to ppl and if your happy and secure with yourself thats allways in style and allways beautiful
the term skinny jeans just refers to the shape of them otherwise they'd be called skinny people jeans! As long as they fit you it doesn't matter and just cuz somone is a plus size doesn't mean they're fat! grrrr! The size you were is a number it doesn't mean anything!
I don't know what plus sizes are in america but i'd google white skinny jeans on google.co.uk for british stores and work out the differences in sizes using google again. Sometimes with jeans you they all have different wasit and leg legnth combinations
There are stores like Evans where I used to work that do skinny jeans in plus sizes, but I'm not sure if they're done in white. You can give it a go, www.evans.co.uk
I'm so proud of you. I'm a size 10/12 and I fight so hard not to have an eating disorder - both ways, to be honest. Half the time I want to vomit up my food, and half the time I want to eat out of my depression. I'm so jealous of people like you that can just be happy with who you are, because there's no damn reason why you shouldn't be!
The problem with the internet is that people who don't deserve to have opinions, do, and that's where people like those in the comments come from. I don't personally like skinny jeans, but they do look good on some people, and NOT just thin people! Some skinny people still look awful in them
While I agree with you about the media and it creating the "perfect" body image for young and older girls, I do think you should hold yourself to the same standard that you ask from these stupid commenters, that is, calling them names like "broom handled body" and whatever else, just because they are slim, is not nice.
I was very skinny as a child and always got called names, stick insect, rake, etc it was not funny and it made me very self conscious about my body.
So just be sure to remember that skinny people have feelings too, otherwise, more power to you for feeling good about yourself, I wish I had your confidence!
Sometimes at school they'd wanna go to the sandwich bar so i couldn't be arsed queuing up alone on the bit I wanted to cuz they would have pissed off without me so i just had crisps or something and they'd be like 'omgz are you anorexic!?' no fool! and once this girl who was really large said she was anorexic and everyone was like 'yeh whatever' you don't just go 'Hi I'm anorexic' and then the weight falls off! People suck, there's too much stupidity in all that I just said to go into!!!
I looked on simplybe.co.uk/.com they had no white skinny jeans i always eat, when I'm happy, when I'm sad, when I'm bored but I usually start a routine (like just 3 meals a day, one snack) when I notice it's getting silly.
As a real woman that looks like a prepubescent boy, I agree with opposites-girl.
And donuts don't help. I tried everything from eating several boxes of brownies a day to actually getting professional medical help to gain weight. I figure nothing but age will help (hurt?) me.
On a more geeky point, I so just finished reading a book on ugliness in art, and one on beauty, and went over my notes on ideas of beauty through art history. So, so cool. (I'm such a nerd) And it does help me feel better about how I look. Because, hey, in some era I'll probably be considered beautiful. (Like in ancient Greece! I know, I know, terrible, terrible joke! But it could have been worse.)
Sadly I am not that slender anymore, but the skinny girl inside me came out for a minute to stick up for herself.
Some people are just naturally small, like some people are big, even if they don't eat lots.
My dad has been the same skinny guy since I've known him and seen old pics, my brothers are both incredibly thin, it's just in their genes. Damn I got my mothers though ;)
You can just make your own skinny jeans. Turn them inside out put them on. Draw a line with a marker and sew em' up. There you go almost insta skinny jeans. (=
Its really too bad that people still think like that, both for plus sized and for skinny people...its a lose lose, even for us "average" folks. As a size five I'm "too fat" to be a model but "too skinny" to be a plus sized model. Its ludicrious that we can't all be happy the way we are. I'm all for eating healthy and being healthy no matter your weight and size. But no matter what you do, its not good enough for society, and the diet industry is the only industry in the world that makes money off of failure. Our "failure" at being like all the others keeps paying this industry to allow for more of the same.
I've never agreed with diets, once you come off the diet you just eat what you'd usually eat and gain the weight, I think it's best to get into a routine of eating the right things and not eating too much.
In Roman times I would have been worth a lot of money as a slave cuz I'm pale but my price would have been knocked down by being skinny! In the East, being pale is very attractive because it means you don't toil in the feilds, China got their first sunbeds only a few years ago as the stigma of being tanned is going away...I like being pale but I get a bit self concious about it in the summer because I'm like a white sheet, I glow cuz I reflect the light!!
going off subject as always sooorrry!
I agree with you opposites. Its not fair for me to make fun of girls who can't help what their bodies look like. I was just offended and I was lashing out.
But I totally agree with you, and I appologize if I offended you, or violinagin, or anyone else.
I'm lucky cause I'm really pale but tan easily, so in the summer I look nice and in the winter I've got the pale skin and black hair thing going on.
Jessica, I'm kinda the same way. I'm nowhere near being skinny, but in the my old job in a plus-sized store I got made fun of for being "thin".
No offense, really. I promise ^_^ I'm too much of a geek to get offended about my size. At least now. Early high school was another story. I was just frustrated yesterday because I had to write two letters where I had to be a little ranty (I hate that, but it had to be done. I don't stand for animal cruelty) And I probably sounded less happy than normal.
lol. You are SO LUCKY kitten!!! I LOVE pale, I think pale is a lot more attractive, but when I was little, I went out so much that now I' m like a wonky tan. My hands are pale [I wear fingerless gloves] and most of my arms are tan except I have TONS of scars [skateboarding, football, soccer, basketball, frisbee, MY DAMN CATS! lol] and then the top of my arms, the fatty fat, I'm pale but I have a bunch of little circles of tan because for Tony's wedding [my father] a few years ago, I wanted to tan because I had a strapless dress, so I layed out in the mountain sun, and fell asleep... and my arms were HORRID. My dress was red and my arms matched it, except they were bumpy and peely. and yea... its just... weird. lol
