When it comes to body shaming plus-sized people, we should all take an example from Sara Petty - the girl who doesn't care what mean people say about her body image.

After noticing lots of tweets (not to her directly) saying that the beauty standards do not allow women over 200 pounds or those with curvy bodies to wear some clothes, Petty decided to make a statement and do the exact opposite. Even though body-shamers said women over 200 pounds shouldn't wear any revealing clothes, including leggings, crop tops, bikinis, and booty shorts, Petty wore is all and tweeted pics with the caption: "Girls: Wear whatever the hell you want." And you know what? She looked freakin' beautiful in every single outfit! Petty's tweet has gone viral since with over 119k likes, 103k retweets, and tons of people sending messages of support, and thanks for sharing some body positivity.

I hate how people think they have the right to say what their opinion is on someone else's body. She has the right to wear what ever she wants.

Leggings are a staple for me. Right now? Leggings and a tank top that covers my ass. Why? Because these clothes DON'T HURT.

I wear leggings but, at my age, I add a tunic type top to hide the cottage cheese thighs.

No-one should wear these in public. They are underwear, not pants

There is NOTHING WRONG with her leggings!! What will it be next?? Taking digs at her for wavy hair?! You'd expect this sort of thing from 10-14 year olds, not 16+'s! Time to grow the fûck up! 😑

I prefer dresses or skirts to leggings or shorts anyway, even if I'm NOT over 200. Loose clothing is cooler in hot weather than shorts or jeans because breezes blow through and cool you down. Advice I got from African friends who know a thing or two about heat.

I am a firm believer that now over the age of 4 years should wear leggings.

I am over 200 pounds and wear leggings and look better than half of the smaller girls running around. At least mine aren't so tight that they look like tights or that they'll give at any moment!

I'd rather not see ANYONE over 75 pounds wear these without something covering their butt.

Although, even over 120 pounds, when you sit down, your thighs turn to the size of Texas... like, da heck?? I would know from personal experience.

I love the way she looks, Her smile, hair, and body are Rembrandt beauty. Curves in all the right places makes her look like a bathing beauty.

and how is she 200 pounds? (after converting to kg) she doesn't look like she's 200 pounds!

Muscle tissue is more dense/weighs more than fat tissue. Larger breasts also weigh more, plus her height can also distribute mass better.

First, is she over 200 lbs? She must be very tall. Second, I vote that no one wears leggings as pants over the age of 12.
