I used to be heavy and wouldn't even think of wearing shorts or short tops at that time. Now I have lost over 200 pounds and would be glad to show off my new body but with my age being 59, I still won't do it. I think it should be up to the individual as to what they want to wear. If someone doesn't like it, then turn your head the other way. Maybe they can't help their weight just as I couldn't when I was heavy. It was caused my my metabolism. Now I am proud of what I am. If people don't like how I look or looked then, turn away and ignore me. I want to say "good luck girls on whatever you choose to wear".
From one who knows what it's like to be a heavy person. Stay cool.
