Not a Clotheshorse

How important are clothes to you? Describe your style, if you have one, and tell us how appearance impacts how you feel about yourself.


I never wear anything tight, short, or low.  Makes me uncomfortable.  I don’t want to be unable to breathe or move comfortably.  I don’t want to be tugging at my hem to cover myself.  I don’t want people  looking down my cleavage.

I dress professionally when I’m working, but I’m also comfortable. Loose, but not baggy. Nothing that is going to have me fussing with it all day.  I like jewelry, and I always wear it when I’m working or otherwise dressed to go out.

At home, give me my jeans and a tee, but again, not tight.

So.  I don’t know what my style is.  I know what I like, and I shop by color first.  When I spot a color I like and that I know works for me, that’s what I pull off the rack.  I like dresses, and the maxi-dress is wonderful for me.  Makes me look a little longer.  I’m only 4’11,” so a short skirt just makes me look stumpy.  Nice slacks also tend to stretch me out a bit. And I have to watch how it all balances, because I’m way overweight.  Don’t want to emphasize the obvious. 

I really don’t think about my clothes too much.  After all these years, I go with what I like and pay almost no attention at all to fashion.  I tend toward the conservative and the classic, I guess.  I don’t get new things very often, because I like what I have.

I just wish I didn’t have as many sizes hanging in my closet as I do.

I would wear this outfit, but the pants would be looser.

  1. Ha ha, you sound like me. I’m 4’8″ and overweight too. Shopping for clothes, especially pants, is beyond challenging for me. Most of the times, I have to buy pants from the adult section and then come home and cut off several inches of each pant leg. Although I like to dress for comfort, sometimes, even that’s not an option.
