Shoulder Pads: Fab or Drab?

No way! Definitely not for me.

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.

I hated this trend when it was around, and I would die if it was to come around again.

This look actually originated in the 1940s, not the 80s. 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.

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.

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!

I don't like looking like a footballer. In fact, my petite shoulders are one of my fave features...

It depends. Sometimes I like 'em. They can be dramatic.
