okay but on the topic of nonbinary fashion, I would really love to see dresses expressly designed to be worn with binders or by breastless persons

because dresses can be comfortable and weather-appropriate and fun, but that doesn’t mean I want my goddamn boobs on display, and it’s really fucking jarring on days when I want to:

a) wear a dress because comfort

b) appear flat-chested 

and literally can’t, because it either ruins the line of the dress or my sports bra or binder is showing at the neck or back or shoulder

plus and also, in a more general sense: why the FUCK is it so impossible to find soft, simple dresses that aren’t pastel or lacey or floral or patterned with butterflies or other “feminine” prints, or which aren’t only plain black? maybe this is just my lifelong seasonal allergy to fashion acting up again, but it always seems like dresses get divided into industry ‘types’, and if you want something loose, made of a soft, stretchy, cottony material, or which is light for hot days, then it’s probably not going to be available in dark, plain colours unless it’s designed for someone over fifty (which is a different style problem), or have anything patterned on it that doesn’t scream ‘FEMININE’

and as someone who likes wearing flowy stuff for comfort purposes but feels deeply uncomfortable with femme stylings, that really pisses me off

basically MOAR NONBINARY FASHION OPTIONS PLS   

Well, they aren’t likely to color a dress for hot weather in black, because dark colors absorb the heat, whereas light colors or white reflect it. You would get too hot in a black or say, navy blue, dress, even if it was made of a light cotton. But for the rest, yes, good question.

the fashion industry puts functional pockets on clothes made for babies and routinely makes summer items from polyester. I think it can stretch to letting me choose what colour I want to wear in the fucking sun.

YES, THIS IS WHAT THE WORLD NEED: MORE BINDER COMPATIBLE DRESSES WITH POCKETS.

AND NOT THOSE FUCKING FALSE POCKETS OR PISSY POCKETS THAT ARE LITERALLY ONLY 1.5 INCHES DEEP.

REAL FUCKING POCKETS THAT SWALLOW MY ENTIRE HAND PLUS HALF OF MY ARM.

AND DRESSES MADE OF COOL BREATHABLE FABRICS. NOT HORRIBLE SWEATY FABRICS THAT ARE AWFUL.

THERE’S A TIME AND PLACE FOR NYLON AND POLYESTER, AND SUMMER IS NOT FUCKING IT.

LIKE, PLEASE. WEARING A BINDER IN SUMMER IS HARD ENOUGH WITHOUT HAVING TO DEAL WITH A HORRIBLE HOT FABRIC ON TOP OF IT.

I GET THAT POLYESTER SOMETIMES LOOKS NICE, AND FLOWS BEAUTIFULLY, HAS GREAT TEXTURE, BUT IT’S LIKE SENSORY HELL FOR ME PERSONALLY.

GIVE ME COTTON, OR VISCOSE. SERIOUSLY, VISCOSE IS A GORGEOUS REGENERATED FIBRE.

BUT MOST OF FUCKING ALL JUST GIVE ME BINDER COMPATIBLE DRESSES WITH POCKETS.

And standardised sizing might be nice too, please.

Don't be the product, buy the product!
