"Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels": The Wrong Message T for Girls

By Sunny Chanel |

Kate Moss Message T? Really?

A large percentage of message tees for girls have some sort of inspirational, ‘feel good’ or cute messages on them. Like “Best Friends Forever,” ‘I Love Puppies” or “Save the Whales.” But this message t-shirt inspired by Kate Moss is not one of those. It’s tacky, tasteless and with the rising rates of girls having eating disorders, it’s just downright irresponsible.  The “Nothing Tastes as Good as Skinny Feels,” t-shirt is available in girl and toddler sizes, and it sends a very wrong message.

But before you start burning effigies of Kate Moss, it turns out she has nothing to do with the line of shirts. She just famously uttered what is said to be her “motto.” The shirts are being sold via Zazzle.com, a company that produces on-demand products that anyone can create and then are offered to the general public. So if you wanted to make a “Not Best Friends Forever,” ‘I Hate Puppies” or “Don’t You Dare Save the Whales” t-shirt, you can do it in just a couple easy steps. It’s just proves again, there is no accounting for taste, skinny or otherwise. Let’s just hope there are no kids, or god-forbid toddlers, sporting this shirt.

    Nothing DOES taste as good as skinny feels but I wouldn’t tell a child that much less put it on a shirt

    You are clearly eating the wrong things.

  5. MsFortune says:

    I know I should be offended and scandalized, but I’m half tempted to get this shirt for my daughter.

    What??? why???

    I totally admit that I had this post-it’ed to my computer 6 months before my wedding, but on a little girl? Ew. Yeah, yeah women are supposed to be whatever shape they come in and be happy with themselves, but I actually believe it for children.

    I wonder who the owner of this company is that is so hell bent on dengerating the youth even more, and to what “clan” they belong to hmmmm

    Chocolate tastes better than anorexic!

    First of all, people need to stop crediting Kate Moss for this quote. It’s been floating around in Prevention Magazine since at least the late 90s.

    Second of all…THIS IS MESSED UP.

    Third of all…having battled an ED myself, I can attest that many, many things taste better than “emaciated, sick, exhausted, and self-loathing” feels. And the latter is something I would never wish on anyone, let alone a child.

    Fourth of all…again….THIS. IS. MESSED. UP. D=
