I’ll wait until I lose this weight before buying any new clothing is a phrase that I hear often among women especially plus size women. I try to empathize as much as possible but I can’t lie and say that I understand that logic because I don’t. Why would you deprive yourself of wonderful trends, flowing dresses and colorful shoes because you’re a little heavier than you want to be.
Here are 4 reasons that you should pull out that credit card and go shopping right now!
1) Trends come and go: When you actually lose all of the weight you want to lose that cardigan that makes your heart skip a beat will be out of style.
2) You’re too grown to be put on punishment: Depriving yourself of shopping (when you can afford it) is like putting yourself on punishment. Punishment’s are bad enough when you’re a kid, why resort to such extreme measures as an adult.
3) Stop giving society what they want: Society wants you to believe that there is something wrong with you when there isn’t anything wrong with your curves. Don’t feed into their B.S. and go on a shopping spree.
4) Piss off the non-believers: Although our population is filled with plus size women (over 50% to be exact) designers and retailers refuse to produce clothing with us in mind because they don’t think we will buy. By not purchasing clothing until you lose weight you aren’t representing the plus size community when it comes to dollars and by default you’re proving these myopic designers and retailers right.
