"Can chubbier girls be pastel goth /.\? Like i see a bunch of cute skinny girls who are mostly in the style, and it makes me feel extremely bad because im obviously super chubby :/! If so any suggestions or stores out there who sell a size bigger than just small? idk im just not lucky enough to find something my size :( (like a M and sometimes L)" - Anonymous message I received today.

I really want to touch upon a lot of things in both of these messages, because I feel it’s important that you lovely ladies know that you have full support from everyone here when it comes to Pastel Goth and Pastel Grunge, no matter your size, shape, or bootyliciousness.
So, I think I’m going to write up another help post specifically covering how to find P. Goth and P. Grunge clothing in larger sizes, and how to coord with confidence, if you guys don’t mind waiting for it! Until then, I do tag all of my #plus size finds, so hopefully you can find something there as well!
But to answer your other concern, keetande, I’m 21, and I know plenty of other ladies here who are older. “Dressing your age” is boring. As long as you’re able to cater your outfits to specific situations (such as not wearing bat tights to a job interview) and you use your actions to define your maturity, you’ll be A+. There will always be a dingus who rolls their eyes or tries to belittle you, but you have to remember that wearing what makes you happy isn’t something you have to grow out of!
