Definitely not for me. inertia 7 years I'd be glad if shoulder pads came back into fashion because it's a great look for pear shapes. My hips are wider than I'd like (big bones that no amount of exercise is going to shrink) and a little bit of extra bulk around my shoulders gives a good balance when worn with otherwise fitted clothes. I'm currently wearing a lot of puffed sleeves over my slim womanly shoulders to make my pear shape hourglass and would be happy to change them for shoulder pads. MissMeow 7 years I hated this trend when it was around, and I would die if it was to come around again. piesecki 7 years Only at an 80s disco... piesecki 7 years Only at an 80s disco...

But the 1940s version is a better version. The only pro of it is that it makes the waist look smaller, but I prefer to keep my small shoulders looking small. gdtwriter 7 years Neeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr again! miss-jaxx 7 years No way... why would a woman want to look like a linebacker? Shoulder pads began in jackets for women in the workplace to sort of make them seem more equal to men (in a weird way)... theyre completely unflattering and I will stay far, far away. ChicaCity 7 years No, no, no! ChicaCity 7 years No, no, no! dreamer720 7 years *shudder* dreamer720 7 years *shudder* Dana18 7 years The 80 & 90 are over!!!!!!!! Please don't bring them back! Mali01 7 years I am so excited! Now I can take those chicken cutlets out of my bra and slap them on my already-broad shoulders for that fabulous linebacker look. I may even dig the old parachute pants out of the closet and wear one Michael Jackson glove to complete the look! RoyalBlueMoss 7 years No, Thank you. RoyalBlueMoss 7 years No, Thank you.
