"May God save those fat women who dare to don crop tops without prior approval from the Boston Globe's Christopher Muther." Well, may god please save my sexy fat ass.
In case you're wondering what Christopher Muther's unsolicited and unqualified opinion is, he says:
'I’m a firm believer that everyone should wear what makes them comfortable (in my case that happens to be a Slanket and tennis shoes), but I’m not a fan of any article of clothing that has the potential to show off muffin tops. There will be a contingent of women wearing them who shouldn’t, and then a contingent of women who will wish they could wear them. And my deepest respect for the women who can wear these and actually pull them off."
Thanks for that Muther, but I'm actually going to wear whatever makes me uncomfortable because I know it makes fascist fatophobes like you uncomfortable too. The delicious cherry on top? Soon I'll be utterly confident in my skin and I'll be able to walk away from this situation leaving you to squirm in your nescient discomfort.
To be completely honest, wearing this top was really outside my comfort zone, but nothing makes me more hell bent on doing something than someone telling me I shouldn't... so I did. *Grin*
It was the first time I stepped into the bustling community wearing less around my midriff than "needed" and the breeze across my belly was initially shocking. Somehow though, the caution turned into shameless empowerment and I can tell that this is just the first little shirt of many this summer!
So, stretch marks out, chins up, and STRUT ladies!
And awesomely enough I'm pretty sure that I belong in the category of women who wear them and can pull them off. Yeah, in your face Christopher. You can check out Virgie Tovar's bustier crop top here and share yours on her Facebook here if you wanna.
Are you gonna be brave and rock one these babies of your own?
