“When I heard about the tsunami in Japan, I imagined a community (Chictopia) of people wearing red – a sea of red in visual support for a hurt nation.” – from StyleNomad’s Chicblog
Chictopia is not only a place where we recognize style icons in the making. Without you Chictopians, we wouldn’t be able to have the largest online community to discuss a wide range of topics.
Through Chictopia forums, we’re able to hold conversations with each other and discuss about fashion and what’s happening outside the fashion world. Let’s take a peek at the forums and see which topics/stories were the most interesting!
Forums > Living Advice
Although this question was asked by ThePastriesKin almost a year ago, this topic is still one of the popular topics being currently discussed in our Chictopia forums. A numerous of Chictopians were glad to dive into what they loved most about their body!
“…I love my waist and boobs. When I was younger I didn’t like them too much because they caught people’s attention and that made my feel uncomfortable. But now I love them because I know many girls pay to have boobs like mine! [Plus] they make my figure more feminine and curvy.” – Chiquitaydulce
“I love my incredibly small chest size. No joke, it is so easy to wear low neckline shirts and go bra-less! Haha.” – alittleunknown

Not only does American Apparel’s CEO has a bad rep for being sued a multiple of times, it also seems that not many Chictopians are too fond over the semi-nude advertisements the company has out. In this thread, “ladycarcar” asked Chictopians whether or not American Apparel’s ads are “too sexy?”
“You would think [American Apparel] would get the idea that girls don’t like the trashy, partially nude ads. It must be a man in charge of the advertisement department [then]..” – bubblegum93
“I don’t think they reflect poorly on Americans – just on American Apparel. I think their ads are blatantly sensationalist and are far more trashy than sexy. I [do] love the idea behind using “real” models, but there’s nothing realistic about being out in public in nothing but a pair of knee socks…” – ShrimpSaladCircus
“I feel really uncomfortable when I’m scrolling around on Chictopia during school and there’s a half naked girl spreading her legs to sell a purse on my screen. There’s really no need to have [the models] that uncovered. If the purse is cute, it’s cute. The naked girl [wouldn’t] affect that.” – JanelleEfe

Miss Bouby asked you guys whether or not you guys wore bras while sleeping. While some of you guys do, the majority of you guys don’t. Let’s see those reasons, Chictopians!
“Ugh I hate bras. Lol. Just the thought of wearing one to bed makes me uncomfortable. Lol.” – loulie_t
“No. I think not wearing a bra to bed could actually prevent you from getting breast cancer.” – neonnothing
“I can’t imagine sleeping in a bra! I’ve also heard it’s bad for your circulation, and studies have linked a slightly raised chance of getting breast cancer if you sleep with a bra. Nothing concrete, but if it’s more comfortable and possibly healthier to go without, then I’m gonna do it!” – Cocobeware

AnindhitaRustivan believes that fashion is a way to represent one’s identity. However, she wanted to find out how you Chictopians deal when others simply aren’t too fond of your style. How did some of our Chictopians respond?
“Maybe my style is polarising, so some people also are slagging me behind my back. But no one ever said something not so nice. But I see the faces of some guys. Well, that doesn’t interest me. I’m not changing myself for them. They are exactly the kind of people I don’t wanna have something to do with.” – Senta
“I don’t let it affect me. And frankly, sometimes it’s fun to stick my tongue out (mentally, along with my mental middle finger) to people who give me dirty looks.” – Catherinee
“I think I have a reverse problem. I’m still trying (at age 29!) to develop my style and figure out what works best for me while being interesting and unique at the same time. Every once in awhile I come up with something I really like, but usually I find my outfits are ho hum or that I tried to make them interesting and missed the mark.” – Myystque
