Dear plus size clothing companies, let me put this as simply as possible.
Just because I am fat, it doesn't mean to say that I want butterflies on ALL OF my clothes.
I imagine that when plus size companies are sitting around trying to work out the styles for the coming season, they just all look at each other, shrug and go, "Stick a fucking butterfly on it, they will just be so grateful for clothes, they won't give a shit"
I have a NEWSFLASH for you. Butterflies should NOT be your default setting when it comes to thinking of what we want.
Don't get me wrong, I love butterflies, I have a tattoo of a butterfly on my shoulder, do I want it on every single one of my tops? Do I hell.
It has got to the point where I play a game I like to call, Butterfly Bingo.
Firstly, does it have a butterfly on it? Check
Does it have a cold shoulder? Check another one off.
Does it have sequins? Ooooooooh, we are so close to achieving Butterfly Bingo
Is it smothered in butterflies, quite sheer with sequins and with a HANKY HEM?
BURN IT. BURN IT WITH FIRE. Then put out that fire, and set it on fire again.
I can't even look at it, it is vile. Make it go away.
I am FAT, I do not feel the need to have butterflies festooned everywhere on my clothing. I have a theory that Plus Size companies think we all secretly identify with butterflies because, if we ever escape the cocoon of fat that we are enveloped in, they think that we too can become the beautiful butterflies we are meant to be.
It is the ONLY reason I can think of that they plaster everything in bloody butterflies.
What do you think?
Are you sick of seeing butterflies on EVERYTHING? Have you ever achieved the holy grail of Butterfly Bingo by spotting a, Cold-shouldered, neon, sequinned, hanky-hemmed butterfly top?
Let me know.
So I can burn it.
