The Difference Between Your Expectations When Buying Clothes Vs. The Reality (8 Pics)

Your body’s a liar. Sure, sometimes it awards you with endorphins and serotonin, but it also has a lot of fun at your expense. Weng Chen, the artist behind the funny comics of The Adventures of Messy Cow, has made a new series of cute drawings illustrating some of the dirtiest tricks her body has ever pulled on her, and it involves a lot of clothes.

“If you ever cared about weight loss, you must have heard this phrase: Don’t go shopping <...> when you are hungry,” Chen wrote. “But I need to tell you another important thing: don’t do any online shopping when you are hungry.”

Because when you’re hungry, you might get the illusion that you’ve lost weight. “I often get this illusion,” she added. “I feel my belly empty and my legs weak, [and] I associate this feeling with being THIN. Then, like a whirlwind, there comes an unstoppable urge of shopping for new cute outfits.”

“I do 90% of my shopping online,” Weng told Bored Panda. “That’s probably why a lot of the time something goes wrong.” The artist said that the emptier her stomach is, the more she relates to the models, and that’s the problem. That the empty belly she puts down her orders with gets full when she receives them. “I feel I’m more rational when I shop at the stores.”

Here are some of the fashion trends pits Weng had fallen into when she was hungry. And after you’re done enjoying these, check out her funny drawings for a fart guide that is a must read for every couple that sleeps in the same bed.
