These Photos Prove that Not Everyone Is About the Big Booty Life

Everybody wants a big booty, right? Well, next time you are with your big booty bestie, just ask him or her what it’s really like to be forced to endure a life of too-big-for-you clothes and panting men when all you want is to take a little walk around the block. A big booty, to some, is a dream come true. To people with the big booty it is more of a curse than a blessing. Here’s why having a big booty might likely make you more miserable than you might think.

It’s almost impossible to find a perfect #OOTD unless it’s a maxi dress.

All your shorts and pants are a couple sizes bigger just so they fit over your butt.

But then you have this weird gap and it makes the pants scrunch up when you put your belt on. It is definitely one of the most frustrating experiences any person could imagine. Like, I just want pants that fit me like a glove. Why are we so against curvy people having appropriate clothing to cover their bodies.

When you do find the perfect jeans, it’s not long till this happens.

Talk about a frustrating moment. Nothing is more embarrassing, or funnier, than trying to bust a move at a carne asada then spending the rest of the day with a pair of pants or shorts with a major tear right down the ass. Like, why? How do you people not always have ripped pants? I can barely climb a flight of stairs without my pants giving out and turning into leg warmers.

Skirts always look like a mullet for your hips.

Your big booty has a habit of showing you all the worst in society.

Speaking of those pesky skirts. Who else has to pretend their skirt is a tube top when putting them on because there is no way that little piece of fabric is going to stretch enough to fit over your booty. No matter how much you suck it in, your booty is not going anywhere. The only option is throwing it over your head and sliding down and into place. Talk about a tedious and unnecessary start to the day.

Your morning workout is getting your jeans on.

Even your leggings have a way of betraying you.

Like, people really don’t understand the problem of having a big booty and trying to be lazy and comfortable like the rest of the world.

It truly is a universal problem for all big booty beauties trying to be comfortable as we go through our days. We just want the same kind of comfort as everyone else. Is that too much to ask for?

Hide-n-seek is NEVER your friend.

Online shopping is your worst enemy when it comes to dressing yourself.

It is always worth the trip to the store if you are going to truly make the most out of your money and your shopping. There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours online reading reviews and scrolling through thousands of styles in hundreds of stores. After all of that, you wait a week for shipping, because who pays for express shipping, and find out the booty won’t let you wear the clothing.

Lastly, you’ve been this person more than once and it never gets less embarrassing.

I can’t count how many times I have knocked over signs, dishes from tables, and just about everything that is not nailed down. It is truly one of the most embarrassing moments because people know that it was your own booty that caused the commotion.

Though she calls herself a “cosplayer in training,” Ivvy Dream’s collection of characters is already very impressive.

Cardi B Went From Wearing Pasties On The Red Carpet To Fashion’s Top Designers. Here’s A Look Back On Her Style Journey

It’s hard not to look at Cardi B and absolutely revel in her career evolution. In the pace of four years, the Dominican-Trinidadian rapper has transformed herself from a learning-as-she-goes newbie to Queen Cardi B. While for most celebrities such a glow-up has led to changes in the way they choose to present themselves stylistically, this Bronx-born and raised Latina has used her style to affirm that she plans on remaining true to herself.

Here’s a look at Cardi B’s style evolution.

Early on, the hip-hop star followed the footpath of iconic female rappers.

In September 2015, Cardi B attended The Blondes show in New York at Milk Studios for New York Fashion Week’s The Shows.

During an appearance, Cardi emulated the unapologetic aesthetic of queen rappers that came before her, particularly Lil’ Kim. In 1999, Kim was the hottest female rapper of her time. Similar to the purple sequined pasty she sported at the MTV awards show that year, Cardi dropped jaws while wearing pasties at a 2015 NYFW show. Lil’ Kim’s look remains one of today’s most talked-about red carpet outfits and has undoubtedly been paid tribute by Cardi multiple times.

The Bronx-born Latina embraced her curves with simple looks.

In February 2016, Cardi attended Bronner Brothers as a TV personality for the International Beauty Show.

Two years have passed since she sported a revealing dress and baseball cap at the Georgia World Congress Center, still, it’s easy to imagine the rapper wearing a similar outfit today, just with a bit more flare.

Belcalis Almanzar soon started showing her success by flashing labels.

In February 12, 2017, Cardi wore a white fur coat and a Gypsy dressy for Gypsy Show at New York Fashion Week.

Longtime fans of Cardi B know that the rapper has always had a love for labels. We didn’t need Bodak Yellow to learn that. Similar to Lil’ Kim’s looks and other Black female artists in her genre, Cardi B has come to show off her success and her own embrace of her sexuality with luxurious style flexing. The photo of her in a white fur coat came just a few days after she had signed a major record deal with Atlantic Records.

Then, she started upping the glitz and showed no plans of slowing down the showstopping.

In March 2017, Cardi attended the Make Trap Great Again showcase at Stubb’s Bar-B-Que for the 2017 SXSW Conference And Festivals in Austin, Texas.

Just a month after nailing her big record deal with Atlantic Records, Cardi stepped out at SXSW festival wearing a low-cut gold dress. The revealing look is something Cardi B has shown no signs of backing away from, even now as she explores her passion for design and looks from different decades.

Once red carpet season was in full swing, Cardi established that she knows how to clean up.

In September 14, 2017, Cardi B stunned in an off-shoulder Christian Siriano ball gown for Rihanna’s 3rd Annual Diamond Ball at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.

Fans watching Cardi B’s major Cinderella red carpet moment were quite literally stunned by the rapper’s transformation. The look rolled out a new understanding of her fashion diversity to fans and showed designers that there was more to her style than the BX street looks she’s famous for. The diamond-colored, conservative, floor-length gown played a stark contrast to the styles we’d come to know the artist for in previous years. The appearance was an alert to fashion designers around the world that the Latina’s eccentricity could give even royal’s a run for their money.

But she didn’t leave behind her signature money-moving and street swag.

On October 6, 2017, Cardi performed during the BET Hip Hop Awards 2017 at The Fillmore Miami Beach at the Jackie Gleason Theater in Miami Beach, Florida.

Just a few weeks after snatching breaths at Rihanna’s big bash, Belcalis stole the show at the BET Awards in an ox, mink, and ostrich intarsia coat by Christopher John Rogers Eddie. The bold number had the best of hip-hop stylists analyzing it as an ode to Lil’ Kim.

She may have started from the bottom but one thing she’s not changing on her way to the top is her trendy hair.

On December 29, 2017, Cardi performed at The Joy Theater in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Wearing a sheer leotard and blue locks, the rapper put on quite a show for fans at a performance in New Orleans. The ‘Velvet Blue Mink Full Lace Unit’ that flowed past Cardi’s shoulders were styled by Atlanta hairstylist Arrogant Tae.

Then Queen Cardi emerged to show us what regular, degular, shmegular looks like when it meets shwanky.

On January 28, 2018, Cardi B attended the 60th Annual GRAMMY Awards at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

In another gorgeous look, Cardi B revealed that the rapper life can be just as a graceful and elegant as a hip-hop artist wants to be.

When stepping out, the Latina rapper doesn’t shy away from her pelitos.

On February 3, 2018, Cardi B attended the 2018 MAXIM party produced By Karma International in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Sporting a look that plenty of Latinas know well, Cardi B stepped on to the red carpet of a Maxim party rocking a high ponytail and baby hairs. Once again proving that while her label game might have been elevated, Cardi B’s glow up is more about glam and career power and not at all about losing her roots.

She has continued her path of becoming an icon while showing up The Icons.

On February 10, 2018, Cardi B sat front and center in a row with Whoopi Goldberg, Meg Ryan, Molly Shannon, Brad Walsh, Jaimie Alexander and Sarah Rafferty while attending the Christian Siriano fashion show for New York Fashion Week.

Sitting among a row of some of the entertainment’s industry’s most famous style veterans, Cardi B stood out at the Christian Siriano fashion show while sporting a fur coat and sunnies, looking equal parts fly and opulent.

She has proved herself to be the ultimate award winner and fashion maven.

On March 11, 2018, Cardi B accepts her award for Best New Artist onstage during the 2018 iHeartRadio Music Awards in Inglewood, California.

Having quickly proven herself to be a fashion favorite for Christian Siriano, the rapper wore a burgundy tulle dress by the designer from his fall 2018 collection just weeks before the drop of her debut album. The playful dress turned out to be a perfect match for her exuberant acceptance speech and perhaps one of her most talked-about looks while rumors of her pregnancy were further stirred online.

Getty Images for Coachella

During the 2018 Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival Cardi B tore up the festival during her performance. But it was 90s R&B feels that truly caught our attention. Her slick all-white outfit paired with baggy pants and exquisite rizos was a look to vibe to.

For the 2018 Met Gala theme, “Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,” Cardi B showed up to the event looking bold and bodacious. The Dominican-Trinidadian Latina dove headfirst into the event’s theme with a dress by Jeremy Scott and a jeweled encrusted crown to match.

Cardi is proving to be one of fashion’s top players. We can’t wait to see what other fashion rules she continues to break and what other labels will fight to dress the Latina rapper from The Bronx.
