Another victim.

If there's one thing that's going to take out the human race, it's women who refuse to conform to flattering fashion rules. Take, for instance, bodycon dresses, aka "skinny dresses." These dresses are not for everyone and should be approached with extreme caution. And if you don't believe us, then listen to this: a former executive at Hervé Leger, a brand synonymous with bodycon, plainly said that women who are "‘voluptuous" or have "very prominent hips and a very flat chest" should not wear tight dresses. Sure, he got fired over the comment, but who cares? If a prickly old white man said you can't wear a bodycon dress, he must be right. Get over it.

How dare you subvert the rules of human decency and flaunt your curves?

Think of the children.

You'll be so self conscious the entire time.

Doesn't she look miserable?

She's crying on the inside.

And don't you dare wear a bodycon dress with a print.

Instead of blending in, you'll stand out in the crowd.

You won't be able to relax.

By the way, we're not being sarcastic all.

We're dead serious.

OF COURSE WE ARE KIDDING. Every body is a bodycon dress body and you should wear whatever you want! All of the women in the above photos are crushing "flattering fashion rules" and you can, too.
