To whom it may concern,
I am writing this letter as a fat person who wears underwear and occasionally purchases new underwear.
I purchase my underwear at a "fat lady store". We could discuss why I am fat, or when I got fat, or how I got fat, but let's just accept for the purposes of this letter that I am currently fat and move on from there.
I recently purchased new underwear and I have a complaint. Why, oh why, do you (and by "you" I mean the designers and fabricators of underwear for fat women) insist on putting little bows on every pair of underwear I can find in the free world.
Let me explain something. I am not wearing underwear to flatter anyone. I am wearing underwear purely for functional purposes and there is no functional purpose for a bow anywhere on my undergarments.
The only thing these little bows do is make another little "bump" underneath my clothing. I don't need anymore "bumps" under my clothing.
When I try to remove the bows, what happens is that the place where the bow was located either 1. begins to fray or 2. gets a small hole that turns into a large hole rapidly. Both of these outcomes force me to purchase yet more underwear with yet more bows.
PLEASE - for the sake of everyone - (and by everyone I mean both fat people and people who have to LOOK at fat people) STOP putting bows on fat lady underwear.
One fat lady considering commando as a legitimate option to "bow-ey" underwear.
