We don't like to be told what to wear. But sometimes, it's just impossible to not notice the annoying things about women's clothing. So, in the spirit of not being told what to wear, we've compiled a list of the ten most obstructive and annoying things about women's clothing.
Number one on our list? Tight clothing. Whether it's a too-tight shirt or skin-hugging jeans, tight clothing just isn't comfortable. And it definitely doesn't make you feel good about yourself.
Number two? Skirts that are too short. They're just not practical, especially if you're trying to do anything other than look cute.

Stay tuned for numbers three through ten on our list of the most obstructive and annoying things about women's clothing!


Wearing a Skirt in the Wind.

The skirts you love so much? They can be a total pain when the wind picks up. One gust, and you're fighting to keep them from flying up and revealing way more than you wanted to show. Not to mention the fact that they're always getting caught on things, which makes walking a total hassle.


Clothing That's Too Tight.

Some women's clothing can be so tight, it's as if the designer is trying to make your life difficult. Besides the fact that it's often very uncomfortable, clothing that's too tight can also be extremely obstructive.

It's hard to do anything when your movement is so restricted, and you can forget about trying to do any kind of activity. You can forget about going for a run or even stretching. The list goes on and on.

Not to mention, it just looks bad. When clothing is too tight, it accentuates all of your imperfections and makes you look like you're trying too hard. Save yourself the trouble and opt for something a little more forgiving.


Dresses That Don't Have Pockets.

Don't get us wrong, we love dresses. But there's one big downside to them: a lot of them don't have pockets.

It's the worst when you're out and about and need to carry your phone, keys and lipstick around with you, but have nowhere to put them. You end up having to carry a bag, which just makes your outfit look even more cluttered and uncoordinated.

We're not the only ones who feel this way, either. A lot of our friends have said the same thing about dresses. It seems like such a simple thing, but it would make such a big difference to have pockets in all dresses.

So next time you're shopping for a new dress, keep this in mind!


High Heels.

Okay, we all know that high heels are sexy. There's no denying that. But they are also insanely obstructive and annoying. I mean, have you ever tried to run in them? Or walk up a flight of stairs? It's not exactly easy or comfortable.

And don't even get me started on how they ruin your feet. I'm not just talking about the fact that they give you blisters (although they definitely do that). I'm talking about the long-term effects of wearing high heels.

Did you know that wearing high heels can actually change the shape of your feet? And not in a good way. It can cause bunions, hammertoe, and other foot deformities. Plus, it puts a lot of strain on your knees and back. So maybe think twice before you slip into those sexy stilettos.


Having to Carry a Purse.

Assuming you don't want to carry your ID, phone, and lip balm in your pockets (and let's be honest, who does?), this means you have to carry a purse. Now, I love a good purse as much as the next woman. But there are definitely some downfalls to this necessity.

For one, they're heavy. And if you have a bad shoulder or back, carrying a purse around all day is going to make that worse. Plus, they're easy to lose. I can't tell you how many times I've put my purse down somewhere and then couldn't find it again. And don't even get me started on how often I've forgotten my purse at home.

But the biggest pain of carrying a purse is that it's just another thing you have to keep track of. You can't leave it just anywhere, like you can your phone or your keys. You have to keep an eye on it at all times or else risk having it stolen. It's yet another thing to keep track of in an already hectic world.


Ill-Fitting Bras.

Finding a bra that fits is like finding a needle in a haystack. You want something that's supportive but not too tight, that won't give you back fat, and that doesn't have straps that dig into your shoulders. And good luckfinding all of that in one bra!

It seems like every time you find a bra you like, they discontinue it or stop making it in your size. Or you go to buy a new one, and they've changed the style, so it doesn't fit the same way. And don't even get me started on sports bras. They're either too tight and make it hard to breathe, or they're so loose they don't do anything.

The worst part is, even when you do find a bra that fits well and is comfortable, you have to replace it every few months because they just don't hold up. The straps stretch out, the underwire pops out, and the band gets all stretched out. It's just frustrating!


Belts That Dig Into Your Waist.

Another thing that's just plain annoying are belts that dig into your waist. I mean, why can't they just make them a little bit more comfortable? Or at least have some kind of padding?

I don't know about you, but I really hate it when I'm wearing a cute outfit and then I have to ruin it by putting on a belt that makes me want to scream. It's just not fair.

And don't even get me started on the buckle. Why does it always have to be so big and bulky? Can't they just make it a little bit smaller and more discreet?

Seriously, belts are just the worst.


Pantyhose.

Okay, let's talk about pantyhose. These things are just the worst, am I right? They're so uncomfortable, and they never seem to stay up. Plus, they're always either too loose or too tight.

And don't even get me started on the whole process of putting them on. It's like a whole production just to get them on without ripping them. Then, once you finally do get them on, you're left with this uncomfortable feeling all day long.

Seriously, what is the point of pantyhose? They're just one more thing that women have to deal with that men don't. Can't we just ditch them already?


Low-Rise Jeans.

You know what I'm talking about—those jeans that sit so low on your hips that they're practically falling off. And don't even get me started on the thong situation.

Low-rise jeans are not only incredibly uncomfortable (seriously, why are my pants falling down?), but they're also really awkward to style. I mean, what top am I supposed to wear with these? A crop top? No thanks.

And don't even get me started on how these jeans make me feel. I mean, I'm constantly pulling them up and adjusting them, and it's just so frustrating. I'd much rather be wearing a pair of high-waisted jeans that actually stay up and are comfortable.


Crop Tops.

Okay, I know what you’re thinking—crop tops are so last year. But hear me out—they’re still one of the most obstructive and annoying things about women’s clothing.

For starters, they’re usually made of a flimsy material that does nothing to support your boobs. And speaking of boobs, crop tops are basically designed to give you a wedgie. Not to mention the fact that they’re always riding up, which means you’re constantly adjusting them.

But the worst part about crop tops is that they always seem to come in a set with high-waisted shorts or skirts. Which means you have to choose between Suffocating Your Stomach or Freezing Your Butt Off. Fun!


Conclusion.

In short, there are a lot of things that are wrong with the clothing that is marketed to women. From the fit, to the fabric, to the way that it is designed, there are a lot of ways that clothing can be improved.

While some of these things may seem like small details, they can have a big impact on the way that women feel about themselves. Clothing should be designed to make women feel good about themselves, not to make them feel like they need to change their bodies.

If you’re looking for clothing that will make you feel good about yourself, be sure to check out brands that are focused on body positivity and inclusivity. These brands are more likely to design clothing that will make you look and feel your best.
