I've got a friend who wears her pants too darn tight. It's unflattering and unfashionable. Everyone at the office makes fun of her constant cameltoe and as her friend, I want to talk to her about it, but I am sort of embarrassed. What can I say to her? Shed Some Light Luca
Dear Shed Some Light Luca
Ew, gross. Totally appalling to look at, and super embarrassing for your friend. The only part that gets tricky is that fashion is a form of personal expression, so telling someone to wear looser fitting clothes is a recipe for disaster. Mix a little tact with some finesse so you don't completely offend her.
How about saying something like, "Nice black underwear, I can see a lot more of you in those trousers than I am sure you are aware of. You should know that Mike in the mailroom is about to make his rounds and he's a total perv. Go home and change before he sees you." Maybe she'll be horrified and get the hint. I mean, Kelly always looks great, but even she could use an honest friend every once in a while.
