There's a bit of a new fashion trend going around up here in Brisbane. I've seen it around, but it's only today that I've really taken notice of it. During my ride to work on the train, I noticed a girl that had a single-piece of fabric wrapped around her waist, just where the edge of her jeans would be. I took notice of it because I realised how stupid those things are.
I've noticed a trend over the years that ties in with exactly why I think the fabric thing is stupid. Over the years, the size of the clothes females have been presented as wearing in magazines and such has dropped. It used to be about an 8. Now it's getting down near 6 and 4. How anyone can like these stick figures, I'll never know, but girls try to be like them because they are portrayed as being "beautiful." Over the years, the size of the jeans/pants that girls wear has gotten smaller and smaller, but the girls haven't. The reason why they're wearing smaller jeans eludes me, but there's no denying that they've been getting tighter and tighter.
Something has gone awry though. Who would have thought that, as their pants got smaller, their bare ass would start to show? To highlight how bad this problem has become in such a short time, I'll again refer to a girl I saw on the train once. There was no noticable ass while she was walking around, but when she bent over to sit down, half her ass came out of her pants. She didn't sit back in the chair either, so everyone who walked past had a view. If she had to bend over in that seat for any reason, I'm pretty sure anyone walking past would have gotten an even better view.
My theory as to why the fabric thing has gotten popular is because of the points I made above, and it is also why I think it is stupid. Why should girls have to wear pants that are three sizes too small and a piece of fabric to cover up any exposed areas? Stop trying to be a stick figure. What's so good about them anyway? All I have to do is breathe out and I'd send one of those girls to the other side of the world. That's not healthy. Don't be afraid to be bigger than a size 4. Be comfortable. Wear comfortable clothes that you don't have to worry about exposing yourself with.
One of the most attractive girls I've ever seen works in the muffin shop near my work. I buy muffins from there every morning, and 9 times out of 10 she serves me. She's not a stick figure, but she has a good figure. That's not what I find most attractive about her though. I get hints of her personality every morning, and by the looks of things she has a good personality to back up her looks. Someone's appearance doesn't get me interested in a person, it's the personality that gets me interested. This is what all those girls should be worried about - instead of worrying about exposing yourself, just be yourself.
Whether anyone reading this is one of the fabric wearers and decides to make a change is something I will never know.
