Being chubs has its perks. Everyone wants to be your friend because you're cute and you're like a nice, cuddly polar bear. You can get super close to girls because your roundness makes you seemingly harmless. Keyword: seemingly. And according to at least one study, "those additional pounds come with a slew of health benefits."

But when it comes to dressing up, being round does have its drawbacks. If you've got extra cushioning, we're pretty sure you can relate to the list below:

1) YOU LOVE BLACK SHIRTS MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE

Because wearing black tees can make you look taller and thinner than usual. Which is why you're also in love with shirts with vertical stripes.

2) YOU CAN'T WEAR BOLD PATTERNS

Because it will bring more attention to your portly silhouette.

 

3) YOU WEAR SLOGAN SHIRTS THAT GO "I’M NOT FAT, I'M JUST FLUFFY" TO BE CUTE AND IRONIC BUT YOU'RE ALSO MILDLY OFFENDED.

Or "Be kind to fat people."

 

4) EVERYONE'S STILL WEARING SKINNY JEANS AAAND YOU CAN'T WAIT FOR THE WORLD TO BE OVER THEM.

Because suman isn't just something you eat.

5) AND DON'T GET US STARTED WITH COLORED BOTTOMS

Do these neon jeans make me look big? Why yes they do. Yes they do.

 

6) IT TAKES FOREVER TO FIND DECENT JEANS

Good fit around the waist, bad around the thighs. Good around the thighs, bad around the waist. Sigh.



7) YOU DON'T TRUST ONLINE SHOPPING

Yeah, they have a size chart for their shirts, but you just know that when that shirt arrives, it'll be too small. You just know it.


8) YOU DON'T TRUST SALES CLERKS ANYMORE

They'll tell you they have it in your size. They don't.

 

9) IF THERE ARE XXL SHIRTS WHY CAN'T THERE BE XXL FITTING ROOMS?

You pray there's a chair in the fitting room—especially when trying out pants.

 

10) YUP, MONEY CAN'T BUY EVERYTHING

You're feeling all like:

You see an expensive blazer you really, really like. You bust out your wallet. You try on their biggest size. The thing rips in two. In the name of Peter Griffin, make plus-sized coats.

 

11) YOU'RE BETTER OFF SHOPPING FOR CLOTHES ABROAD

At least you can say, "Imported ang mga damit ko."
