Put a belt on it: The Plus Size obsession with having a visibly smaller waist.

The waist belt is an addiction. No seriously it is.  Death to the Mu Mu is a thing, not because of the awkward patterns but the silhouette. In this movement of being sexy at any size most of us believe it’s a necessity to show our ratio. Come on you know I’m not lying. The slimmer we look the more comfortable we seem despite how uncomfortable we are.  This is Cornerrich.com. “Styling lives by creating brave spaces” which means I’m going there. I remember purchasing a yellow dress for Afro Punk two years ago. When I say this dress was bad I mean Beyonce “they don’t love you like I love you” Lemonade bad. I walked out of the dressing room and to my surprise my best friend hated it. Long story short she said I looked fat. Ummmm news flash I Am fat.  At that time, I wasn’t who I am now and I put the dress back on the hanger.

So here’s the deal. I’m here for the shift dresses, the tunics, and any other boxy ass silhouette because I don’t have to prove how small my waist is. Belts are bomb however we don’t always need them.

    I feel like belts make us plus size girls look bigger in other areas anyway. They show our kangaroo pouch even more too. The world really isn’t ready for us anyway.
