Now that’s absurd, right? Why would one compliment a plus size girl? Like, whats there to compliment other than say “Hey! You are fat.”

There are many ways the society compliments a plus size girl, and it goes like:

  • You’ve got a beautiful face there! Lose some weight and you will floor anyone with those killer looks.
  • Black always suits you!  Dark colours must be your bff right? 
  • You dress really well for your size girl! How do you manage to do so?
  • Really? You can jog for 20 mins on the treadmill without tiring out?
  • Pants look really good on you. May be you should stop wearing your shorts.
  • Oh you look lovely in that loose dress. Where do you get such sizes?
  • You really know how to contour your face. Teach me some tricks to hide my double chin please?
  • You look and dress well but I am really worried about your health. May be you should lose some weight.

And I can list a lot more…

But here’s the thing! What you feel are compliments are actually not compliments. Indirectly and unknowingly, you are just using the wrong words to show how you feel. Tell me if I am wrong in understanding the thoughts going through your head and exactly how you feel within when you compliment a fat girl with these lines:

  • You’ve got a beautiful face there! Lose some weight and you will floor anyone with those killer looks. A beautiful face and a fat body does not go together. Fat is not beautiful. Please do some justice to your face by losing some of your junk.
  • Black always suits you!  Dark colours must be your bff right? Black and dark colours hide your fats. Stick to them and dont walk out wearing something fancy and revealing. It embarrasses me.
  • You dress really well for your size girl! How do you manage to do so? Fat girls cannot look good. Period. But you are an exception and just think how good would it be to look at you if you were to thin down.
  • Really? You can jog for 20 mins on the treadmill without tiring out? I cant do that even though I dont have a bulky body. Do you actually take some energy tablets? Because this cannot be real.
  • Pants look really good on you. May be you should stop wearing your shorts. Shorts cut through your thunder thighs. Plus the fact that you dont have much thigh gap and that isnt very pleasing to the eye. Oh, and the stretch marks and fat rolls thats visible from the behind, totally embarrassing. 
  • Oh you look lovely in that loose dress. Where do you get such sizes? Or do you actually get them made?  Nevertheless, loose clothes hide your fat and thats what is better for you.
  • You really know how to contour your face. Teach me some tricks to hide my double chin please? Your face is basically shapeless but thanks to makeup. 
  • You look and dress well but I am really worried about your health. May be you should lose some weight. Fat is unhealthy. You can die from many forms of diseases. We are almost immortal as we are thin. But you will die of heart disease if not anything else.

So here’s the thing about complimenting plus size girls. How about just saying this instead of all those above : “You are a confident, self-loving being. Be as you are!”
