I Just Can't Wear…

I'm usually a proponent of wearing whatever makes you feel awesome, but there are some things that I just can't wear. Well I can, but I usually end up looking ridiculous and that doesn't make me feel awesome.

I normally would never say this but, please take a look at this woman's chest. See how it's not Victoria's Secret model-worthy? Well mine is. Minus the model part. I have a chest and when I wear turtlenecks, the illusion of perkiness gives way to that classic tune "Do Your Boobs Hang Low". Without trying to sound like a two-bit whore, I have to show some skin to keep my chest where it should be.

I'm 5'4". Wearing cropped pants of any length, even with heels, makes me look like an Oompa Loompa. Wherever the pants end, that's where my legs end. I just can't pull it off. When summer rolls around, I pull out the maxi dresses to keep cool.

I think this one cuts the deepest. What girl doesn't want to throw on a t-shirt and jeans for casual comfort? Alas. T-shirts don't offer enough structure for my lumpy bod. Rolls need structure to cover them up and the regular ol' tee just doesn't work. If I do wear t-shirts, they have to be looser with a banded bottom or covered up with a sweater.

What item of clothing you really wish you could wear?
