Letter: Some women aren’t too tight with their ‘fashionable’ clothing
Re: ‘Not your mom’s jeans’ (Metro, March 10)
Letter writer Diane E. speaks for herself. I am not familiar with “mom jeans” other than the name. I wondered why they were used as an example of “bad fashion.” So they are “too baggy.”
Probably, it is because they allow leg movement. I have communicated with other women on websites meant for women who love outdoor activities, and love comfortable clothing meant for function, not fashion.
Even so-called active-wear has “low rises” that pinch and are tight, shirts have “princess seams” making it hard to move, etc.
Stop it, clothing manufacturers. We think men have a better deal with plain, simple designs. Women’s clothing is a subtle “foot binding” to prevent independence.
