A Fitting Idea – When Too-Small Clothes is Hot

Like many curvy women, my wife has to search far and wide to find clothes that fit her properly. For the most part, options that fit one area are tight on another, or worse, the whole thing is as shapeless as a bed sheet ghost costume. What’s the point of all those sexy curves if the only clothes in your closet fit like a toga?

Every once in a while, we come across something that celebrates her shape rather than trying to hide or disguise it, and the effect is eye-popping. I love seeing her in such attire, even though it can be distressing (and unfortunately, sometimes downright depressing for her) trying to find it.

Yet I also, on occasion, appreciate the other option. No, not the too-big-toga option. I mean too-small clothes. Sometimes, I think it’s really hot when she’s in something that’s a size or two (or four when possible) too little.

Some of the ladies reading this are rolling their eyes or raising eyebrows in confusion, but I know some of you guys are nodding in agreement. You know what I’m talking about.

When she’s spilling out of her bra…
When a bikini string cuts deeply into her hips…
When her pant seams are taxed…
When gaps in her blouse reveal strain on her buttons…
When her booty hangs out the bottom of her cutoff shorts…
When her curves become bulges…
When removal requires a strategic effort…
When fabrics stretch to translucence…
When buttons risk becoming projectiles…

So hot.

Admittedly, this isn’t for every occasion or every day. And certainly not for all social contexts. But it sure is fun to look at every once in a while…

The only disappointing part of this is how incredibly (and needlessly) self-conscious this makes her. It highlights the body that I love, but that same body is the one she despises thanks to the enemy’s frequent lies. So the fun, flirty, and likely uncomfortable look can easily be accompanied by a drop in confidence. A real shame, because it’s totally hot.
