Can a Plus Size Girl wear leggings?
The title of my post is a much asked question in the community of younger women. Can a Plus Size Girl wear leggings? It got me to thinking, with all of the body positivity striving to surface out there we still have a society of unhappy people policing bodies and saying what we can or can’t wear. Saying things such as “I care about your health so I am going to try and publicly embarrass you by stating you will die soon or you’re glorifying obesity.” That just don’t fly with me at all! Neither does it fly with these strong, beautiful and intelligent women below.
“I care about your health so I am going to try and publicly embarrass you by stating you will die soon or you’re glorifying obesity.”
On my Instagram Story I put out a ad looking for some women who would volunteer a image for this post. I was so uplifted when an incredible amount of women asked to participate in the post. I just accepted everyone who contributed! The more positive activism in showing our women and younger audience of today that your body is beautiful and wearing whatever the heck you want to wear while still looking great was a big thumbs up to me. So let’s get started and begin sharing the positive vibes.
1. ) WeathersRabbits
Here you can see a Mrs. WeathersRabbits looking lovely in her Torrid size three leggings. Standing by the water she looks peaceful and out to have fun. Amazing… she’s wearing leggings and looking fantastic! Dressed in her thrifted burgundy v-cut scrunched sleeveless top and white criss-crossed thrifted sandals, we can definitely give the two thumbs up on being frugal! Keep those hands on your hips girl, we love that sass you’re giving us! If you loved Mrs. WeathersRabbits attitude and her cute legging look then you can find all of her social media here:
“Keep those hands on your hips girl, we love that sass you’re giving us!”
*A little reminder to wear what you want to wear. It is your body and you shouldn’t feel ashamed of it or how you dress it. How others feel about you is their own opinion and should not reflect how you yourself feel about you. Leggings are pants, they go on your legs and are made for your bottom half. Don’t let anyone ever tell you different!*
2. ) Uniquely.ordinary92
Uniquely.ordinary92 is most certainly not ordinary at all! She’s extraordinary with her runway pose and flare. Not sure where she got the leggings or the top but, you can tell she certainly has a knack for Disney (but, dont we all?)! Loving the positivity in this image, not one crap on a stick is given. Work it babe! If you loved all that the excellency Uniquely.ordinary92 has to give, then check out her social media here:
“Loving the positivity in this image, not one crap on a stick is given.”
*Dressing how you feel that day or even that week is up to you. If people give you crap for what you’re wearing, especially on social media- there’s a little thing called a block button. Me, myself and I use it daily. Trust me. I have trolls after me all the time trying to ruin my good day but at the end of the day you need to realize something. They are indeed just trolls. Which equals unhappy people trying to make other people unhappy to feel better about themselves. In the end that feeling only lasts them a few hours and they are out to do it again. So just be a duck and let the water roll off your back. I know easier said than done, right? But, it gets easier with time.*
3. ) Theblueeyedbelle
One thing’s for sure, Theblueeyedbelle most accurately is a blue eyed belle. She’s knocking us dead with her golden locks and cowgirl boots. Not sure where the leggings or top came from again from this one but, the floral pattern on her wine red leggings is sending us into a spin next to her vibrant flowers! Her simple black tee just completes the look and matching those black cowgirl boots that will stomp those negative comments right out of here. If you enjoyed Theblueeyedbelle’s look try taking a look at her social media as well, I doubt you will be disappointed!
“those black cowgirl boots that will stomp those negative comments right out of here.”
*Standing up for yourself is hard. Standing up for others is easy. Think of yourself like everyone else. Somebody who deserves a hero. Being your own hero when you feel like there isn’t anyone to whisk you away into the sunset feels amazing! Soon standing up for yourself will be easy because you know you deserve it… just like everyone else does.*
4. ) Mrsgingerfox
Mrsgingerfox is just dazzlingly, sparkling and gorgeous! She’s a fellow type one diabetic and bad arse survivor. The glorious pacman leggings she’s wearing is in a size 2XL from Living Dead Clothing. Not sure where the top is from but, where ever it is from I am sure it is from a galaxy far far away. Notice to be seen as well the great Mrsgingerfox is recently in a contest so check out her social media to help her get some votes in!
“She’s a fellow type one diabetic and bad arse survivor.”
*Not sure where to begin? No one really does, we just start doing it. I started posting images of myself out of no where after I decided video game YouTube wasn’t for me. I wanted to do something more, then I found my calling. Loving myself and hopefully helping others to do the same. You just need to find your start and begin.*
5. ) xmakexthisxtownxfeelxokayx
Xmakexthisxtownxfeelxokayx is just so colorful and I really love it! From her highly green grass and her magenta purple hair this image just pops. Wearing leggings and again you guys she’s looking fabulous in them! Her positive peaceful vibe just radiates in this photo. You can find her leggings from Forever 21 Plus in a size 2XL; the top is unknown, but, appears to have been from a camp she went to at some point in her life. Loving the mixed matched socks as a odd on point that being different is ok and not everything has to be perfect to be happy and love yourself! If you indeed enjoy her style and charisma, then check out her social media for more awesome-sauce from Xmakexthisxtownxfeelxokayx:
“Wearing leggings and again you guys she’s looking fabulous in them!”
*Knowing that you are not cheerful and sending false smiles on the internet to get people to like you is realistic. The best advice I can give anyone is to just be yourself. The original is always better than some copy. Find your audience and your people and your community and be happy. There are sooo many people in this world babe, not every single one of them is going to like you. But, finding the few who get you and understand you. It’s freaking life changing!*
6. ) Seraspsychotic
Coming in sixth (there is no order reasoning, just put the images in order of how I received them from these beautiful ladies.) is Seraspsychotic. With her dark gothic style, who wouldn’t enjoy her ensemble? I love patterns on leggings and this one is most bizarre and frighteningly cool at the same time. Peace signs, skeletons, eyes and aliens… oh my! It goes splendidly with her razorback candy skull black top and black low top converse. The sizes and where she got them I am not quite sure of, but, you can ask her on her social media if the curiosity is a bit too much for the cat:
“It goes splendidly with her razorback candy skull black top and black low top converse.”
*So I once read a quote and I believe it was from Franklin Roosevelt that said ‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.’ I have lived by this quote so many times when posting a image on social media (like in leggings or underwear) that I felt I maybe shouldn’t because of how my past life was. Growing as a person and changing out of the restrictions you can feel as a person can be like taking a breath of fresh air. Grow and become your own person without fear. There will always be judgment even when you believe you are doing everything right, those people, they will still judge you. So you my friend just be you and wear leggings and just live your best life!*
7. ) Nicoliex
Last but no least we have our Nicoliex! Wearing black on black and being incredibly fierce. Her outfit reminds me of a ballerina and the golden flats contribute to that aura you sense when first glancing at the photo. No sizing details were given or where they were from, but, can we just for a moment appreciate her makeup? So freaking beautiful and how bad arse she looks? It’s like, she’s bad and she flipping knows it (Screams ‘YASSSS QUEEENNN!!!’ in the background.)! If you loved this bad mamajamma like I did then go ahead and check out her social media provided below:
“It’s like, she’s bad and she flipping knows it (Screams ‘YASSSS QUEEENNN!!!’ in the background.)!”
Just a Legging Ending…
Each woman in the photos volunteered their image to me due to an ad on Instagram I set out for a Body Positive post. Every word and uplifting thing I said about them is true, nothing was scripted and all opinions are solely of my own. They volunteered to show all women they can still be stylish and leggings can be pants if you want them to be. They are also showing the world that no matter what size you are, you indeed can wear leggings and be beautiful. Giving the haters who constantly decide to degrade us with fatphobia and false health concerns the big pinky (what my sister and I used to use as the middle finger because we were innocent children) up in the air.
If you have a problem with this post at all please understand this from the bottom of my heart, I don’t care. Yet, if it bothers you deeply please message me about it and not the wonderful ladies helping to make a difference in this world.
