When I first saw this snippet form O Magazine, the first thing I did was laugh! I mean ,it was just too funny ,that this was the only response they could give one of their readers.
This is how it went ,read below
Question : Can I pull off a crop top?
Answer : ” If ( and only if!) you have a flat stomach, feel free to try one! For more coverage, layer the top over a longer shirt as shown in look two”
I have so many issues with this answer and I really believe it could be handle much better. Here is how I would have answered it and you can see my post on crop tops here .
Now I’m not the biggest girl in the room but , I’ve been thick, big or fat all my life and no matter what you name it society still criticizes .Trying to place you in a box and say oh you can’t wear that, why because you are just too fat .When did my size become your problem for what I choose to wear? I’m not bothering you yet you still stare , when you see me in my crop tops and bikinis .
I’m living freely and quite happy, so society ;please leave me ! I will not conform to your rules telling plus size women they can’t wear prints ,crop tops or bright colours . Cause all women , whether skinny /fat are allowed to wear whatever they want, when they want .
So @oprahmagazine watch my readers and I as we rock our crop tops
, cause we’ve been pulling this off before it was even a trend !
