Ask the Reader: What item are you most afraid of wearing?

Sharing is caring!

It has been a minute since I have done an ask the reader post. I love hearing from you guys- you are quite the sharp and resourceful bunch.

So today, I had been thinking, doing a bit of self inventory and realized, I am terrified of skater skirts and I used to be afraid of showing my midriff, used to be. If you have been following me on Facebook, I touched on this before.

I love the look of both of them, but for some unknown reason, I get extreme pause to actually step into one. I have bought more than a few of these items, to try to push myself out of my fear, to no avail.

Until now!

My Style: I’ll Take a Two Piece and Some RebDolls- The Curvy Fashionista #TCFstyle


Maybe this comes from my years as a cheerleader and they are wayyyyy too familiar. Or maybe it is because I am a little older and they (skater skirts) read a bit younger than I am… I really do admire the style and the many ways they have been worn, BUT DAMMIT.

Showing my midriff?

I can hear my mother in my head scorning me about this… LOLOL

I CAN’T. I think I am scared. OR, maybe, I am believing the lies in my head…

I don’t want to show too much of my business. I dunno. LOL. I am stuck here.

Which had me thinking, I wanted to know if I was alone in being so apprehensive in trying something new.

What item are you most afraid of wearing?

So I ask you today, what item are you the most afraid of wearing?

Do you think we could overcome this fear together? If enough of you decide to face your own item that you dread or fear wearing, I will do it too! Maybe we could hashtag it? I dunno.

  1. I never wear sleeveless blouses or dresses…nothing that has no sleeves or tiny sleeves in public. It is quite a problem as I live on a island south Mexico, so hot and humid most of the year. I am so insecure about my arms, thy have rolls and they’re white as I never expose them. I wish I could have the courage to show them.

  2. Stuff that gives me vbo. Vbo doesn’t look good to me. You can not convince me it’s beautiful and in my eyes there’s no way to own it in fiecre way so I cringe when I see myself and other beautiful plus ladies with it too.

  3. Sausage dresses (lol). Sometimes fears are a bit warranted. No matter what size you are, you cannot wear everything so dont even play yourself. My fears have keep me from looking like a fool many a day.

  4. I used to never wear shorts or skirts. I hate my legs. I also never wore sleeveless tops. Today, I’m in a mini skirt. The bf is quite happy. Lol! And you should see the tan lines from my tank tops. I’m over feeling self conscious. It takes too much of my time, energy, and happiness.

  5. I have a booty do….u know ….when your stomach looks bigger than your booty do….so I will never wear my shirt tucked into my pants? Peplum tops and shirts with tapered at the waist is my go to

  6. Pants (jeans and work pants). Since I have gained 40lbs pants don’t fit the same and most of the time don’t look right. I look bigger than what I am with pants. So I wear dresses instead most of the time.

  7. Rompers. Not the ones with shorts, the really cute dressy ones. But I have a good reason. Plus size and curve fashion lines don’t cater to shorter plus sized women. So a romper meant for you will have a crotch that hangs around mid thigh for me. There’s no way to make that look good. It’s strictly separates for me😧

    • The skin that hangs in your middle because of the muscles being stretched from pregnancy is called an “apron”. It looks bad and can cause rashes from perspiration under the skin. So I have to use powder to keep it dry. I wish I had the money for surgery to take it off.

  8. I have a massive belly (think seven months, but I’m not pregnant) so I struggle. Fitted dresses are out. I’ve always covered my legs but recently thinking my legs are reasonably ok compared to the rest of me why not show them?

    • I feel ya, babes…just love yourself and sometimes you gotta get pissed off and tell them about their faults 😂😂😂 I had to tell my mom “listen, just get over have two skinny daughters and one fat one, stop nagging me”
      Thank God my husband think I’m sexy as all get out. Turn off the negative voices, including your own 😜

  9. Mini skirts and bikinis (in fact any swimmers in public). I made it my MISSION last summer to wear swimmers in public because I was so sick of being weighted down by long board shorts and rash vests every time I went to the beach or tried to do laps. Every time it becomes easier.

  10. High heels,lol…I have Fred Flinstone feet and I can not,for the life of me, find any that don’t make me walk like a baby deer just getting off a horse… I would love to wear them but I just can not seem to master ” the walk!”…
