Who works out in a tube top? The thought of exercising in a strapless bra is almost as horrifying as running around with no bra at all.

I kind of agree with the point she was trying to make, as crudely as she worded it. Certain things look better on certain people. You have to know how to dress to flatter your body type. If I walked out of the house with my stomach showing, I'd burn my neighbors' retinas right out of their skulls.

Umm... yea... there was nothing okay with that video. The "model" is almost creepy looking.

The layering just did not work, we had major fashion crisis going on in that video.

I don't think you need to have a super tight skinny body for a crop top. But at the same time if I walked out of the house in a crop top right now id be joining Jessabel with burning the retinas out of my neighbors skulls lol.

Reality is, not every clothing style goes with every body type. But it could have been said with a little more tact.

The same type of peeps that I see all day at the gym and yet come PT test time they fail and fail hard. They're so focused on looking 'fit and trim' that they don't actually have the guts to build up muscles. Crop tops also seem like a good way to get bugs and dirt up in places it shouldn't go >.>

What on earth is that lady talking about? You can't excercise in a crop top; the model's boobs would fall right out of that thing if she went jogging! O.O

She lacks tact and humility. She could have gotten the idea across without being the least bit hurtful if she had tried. The problem is that she thinks of larger people in a negative and dismissive manner and is bad at hiding it. Sha-low! I think crop tops can look just as good on big girls too in a 'godess' kind of way.

This woman has some definite problems with what looks good (beige cardigan over a purple tank with blue and black yoga pants???), and where to wear things (a strapless tank to work out???). Yet, I have to agree that crop tops, like mini skirts and spandex, should show off what's looking good. If it doesn't look good, cover it up. And frankly, the short strapless, form hugging tank, doesn't do a good job, IMO, of showing off the model's features. For one thing, it doesn't cover what doesn't look good: that smile. Then, I think it makes her chest look even larger than it probably is -- who is looking at her stomach anyway? I think there are better choices to show off her bust and her flat stomach.

When I see an overweight person (male or female) with exposed belly hanging over the waistband of their spandex pants, I really wonder what mirror they were looking in that morning before they left the house. The short tops and then tight low riding or hip-hugger jeans showing off the bulge just above the waist band -- ya, I just don't get it.

Everyone has their own attributes and we have to learn to show off our best features to detract attention from our worst.

That lady is an idiot.

No crop top for working out.
No yoga pants out and about.


I'm a skinny person and I still don't feel comfortable wearing a crop top and my stomach showing. I'm not really a modest person, I do like to show a bit of skin but it's definitely not going to be when working out or wearing yoga pants to the mall. Crop tops aren't all they're made out to be either, when I wear one I'm constantly pulling it up so my girls don't fall out or it squishes them and just doesn't look very flattering...

That girl in the picture with the crop top needs some groceries.. she has absolutely no bottom. I'd rather be curvy than look like a stick.

I do stick by a good bit of fashion rules though, NO brown and black together..Ever.. no white pants, I don't want to see your underwear or bra.. the list goes on.

Oh dear, that last one happened with my new breeches once...

Brown and black can be in the same outfit if the black is very black and the brown is a mid-tan or lighter. But there has to be strong differentiation between them.

But I'll wear deliberately clashing stuff just to annoy people. And it's amazing how many people get annoyed by what someone else is wearing! I overheard some charming girl speaking in horrified tones to her friend about my unmatched outfit - this was at design school I might add - totally oblivious that I was trolling them because I thought that most design students were too uptight and not really creative or daring at all

What I don't get is why anyone would care about what anyone else is wearing. If you don't like it or don't want to see it, don't look. Simple as that.

Personally, I think brown and black together are just fine. What's the big deal?
