You have no idea of how excited i felt when i saw this new trend! Back in the day ( the 80's, those wonderful days of Dynasty and all things dramatic!) I would never leave the house without a shoulder pad, and i have a few embarrassing stories to prove this!
There were many instances where i looked like a had 3 bosoms, or the time when a shoulder pad slipped off my shoulder and down my dress and fell to the floor in a restaurant - and i kept walking...too embarrassed to go and pick it up and slip it back!
If you were born with slightly small or sloping shoulders then you will understand the POWER of this addition! It can help to give the appearance of authority and confidence. This is also why military uniform jackets almost always have padded shoulders.
Also, for us ladies it means that wearing these will instantly make our waists look smaller and our hips look slightly wider - giving the allusion of the hour glass figure.
There are some fabulous t-shirts in the stores that have them in, as well as dresses and even a leotard top!
