sizism of the shoulder sort

tags: , , ,

In  the 80’s  I used to  cut the shoulderpads out from new clothes.   This fashion-subversive act enabled  me  to avoid looking like a cast extra from  Dynasty, Falconcrest, Dallas, or an aspiring  USA football team member.    

Apparantly the shoulder-pad  look is returning.   There are rumours that The John Lewis Partnership (JLP) haberdashery department has recently sold-out of shoulder pads.    

I didn’t purchase them.

    The shoulder pad fad returning truly is sad. Women should not have to look like football players to be elegant, beautiful, and graceful. They just have to be women.

    Shoulder pads on my frame look very very silly. I too was a clothes vandal.

    I’m ashamed to admit I have pictures from my youth were I am sporting a corkscrew perm, shiny fabrics, highly flammable lace, frills and shoulder pads all combined in one mind blowingly horrendous outfit. I have to warn you though ladies…manufacturers are cleverer this time around, the new breed shoulder pads are fully integrated into the design of the garment – removal can only be performed by a skilled surgeon.
