Yes, that does make your ass look big

Oh, that hot new trend of wearing shorts over tights!

Not good. Unless you are shaped (or rather, not shaped) like the twiglet shown above.

A weekend in New York City will turn up hundreds upon hundreds of "fashionistas" dressed in these chunky shorts (light) over tights (dark). Hmmmmmmm.

Fashion facts: Light colors make items appear larger. Dark colors make items appear smaller.

Unless you are a runway model, do not attempt this look. Unless you are a practicing anorexic, do not attempt this look. Unless you are under 25 and fall into one of the above categories, do not attempt this look.

Are you over 25? Are you over 95 pounds? Are you under 5'10"?

If you've answered yes to any of the above questions, then yes, your ass looks big in those shorts.


  1. You only LOOK thin if you are thin.

    What baffles me is that 80% of the world is NOT thin, and yet the clothes designers and advertisers flagrantly ignore that fact and market clothes that don't flatter the majority of normal women.
    And we feel bad then when we wear them, when we shouldn't have even tried them on in the first place!

  2. maybe if one stands in front of a black background...then it would look like one is floating around without legs at all...leglessly! ?

    Ok, so maybe not.

  3. i meant to say good one kim here and then realized i just said it below first. mmmmwell they are both good :)
    which means i've suffered through the stupid word verification TWICE

  4. Well I answered YES to all three questions.

    My ass looks big is most clothes but I have a really healthy body AND mind which is very pleasing.
