Perhaps our favorite part about People of Walmart, a site where readers submit photos of Walmart fashion, is that you can isolate just one state -- like ours!

Click through to see who's been shopping at Missouri Walmart stores in the last year.

Holy fucking shit, Amela. You are the posterchild for TL;DR.

While I believe people should cover their but and bend at the knees and muffin tops should be well hidden with the correct pants and tops, the pregnant ladies should be left alone. If anyone has ever been pregnant in hot summer months or even winter, the heat radiating from your body is sometimes unbearable and you can careless what you look like. And there have been many times (a few years ago) I would run to walmart in my pj's because I ran out of diapers. So really, don't knock everyone dressed badly at wal-mart after all its not a fun night on the town.

Thank God, we do still have a right to our opinions. I have been the victim of people judging "my cover," and not my content. I was never taught about grooming and dressing the right way until I joined the Air Force. I am from the south, and I had a definite southern accent and southern ways for which I was teased often. I often envy people who can dress how they want, say what they want, and act like they want, and yet not care what I or anyone else thinks. I am so thankful my Air Force career afforded me the personal development I needed. I have traveled the world, and observed many different cultures (Southeast Asia, Europe, and the Middle East to name a few). I learned to respect people as they are, and not what I think they should be. Because of that, I respect your right not to be okay with others' behavior too. It is okay if we agree to disagree. Thank God we are not all the same. It would be very boring.

Yes, most of these folks look like shit to me. But I have to play devil's advocate.

1. Missouri summers are horrible. We can all agree to that. And some people are fat. You know? Fat people exist. (Deal with it?) Point: Skinny girls with short-shorts and their bellies showing never get made fun of. Showing off a pregnant belly? Who knows - maybe they just came from a pool. When you get out of the pool you tend to dress scantily so as to not walk around in sopping wet clothes. Pregnant ladies who swim don't cover their bellies. If they had to stop at the store after swimming - well there you have the pictures above. (Note the one in the blue shirt has hair that looks like she went swimming.) Just sayin. 

2. Rat braids? I have no idea. What ethnicity are those guys? They don't look waspy/anglo to me whatsoever. It could be a cultural style. They could be native. They could be latino. They could be hindu. Or it could be some fashion choice of a sub-culture most of us are unaware of. We don't seem to flip out when we see folks with lip rings, neck tattoos, and giant plugs in their ears. We find that trendy and fashionable, but if you've never been exposed to those elements, you might find them as unnerving as a "rat braid". 

Those were the only two - as far as the dude in the cut-offs, the crack-bottomed tramp stamps, and the lady with the red/pink fishnets - eeeeehhhh. Ah well. C'est la vie.

I wonder how many Wal-Mart shoppers are RFT readers. Probably less than there were prior to this nonsence.

Just like these people have to live with their choices, I won't sit here and pretend I'm completely okay with it, hardly mocking, I just don't approve of it. However, their choices open them to mockery, LOOKS are extremely deceiving this I know, but when they present themselves like this people will question their choices, intelligence and furthermore if they are productive members of society. Opinions are like assholes everyone has one including ME! Barbara, as for my Poor comment it wasn't for you, it was for someone who suggested everyone here was mocking the poor...like I said I'm far from mocking, and I wouldn't even dream as to judge poor people because I am someone who has experienced the low and high of life.

Actually, I am quite conservative in my dress. However, I have friends who do let it all hang out, and that is their choice. I do not have to live with their choices, they do. Unless of course we consider the old adage "guilt by association."

Oh I am just so thrilled you didn't answer the question if "You let it hang out in public"...I'm obviously smart enough to know you are smart enough not to make yourself look like a hypocrite.

I do not support mocking anyone. I did not use the word "poor," you did. I have no idea of their socio-economic standing in life. I have witnessed people from all levels use poor judgment in areas of their life. It is not right to mock ANYONE. Are you perfect Amela? You do good things, but are you perfect? If not then do not judge how these people dress or what they do until you walk a mile in their shoes.

Oh, if you think smart is not something you want to at least appear to be, I don't think we have anything in common. Goodnight!

Amela Brkic

Yes you saw...and just had the need to intellectualize, no I really do understand! Some people just love to make themselves look smart, I'm not going to hold that against you. Let me tell you, if I put myself in the position where I have made a obvious bad choice, and people criticized me, well then let them. Let me ask you...do you let it all hang out in public?

Katie Dersnah Mitchell

Just a thought. Do you know these people that you are denigrating? That's the rub. "Ignorance is bliss ", "considering they are probably milking your paycheck." "cannot believe you have the decency to compare Homeless people to those people, who obviously (NOTE THE PREGNANT WOMAN WITH HER PREGNANT BELLY HANGING OUT WITH ANOTHER KID SITTING IN HER CART) can afford proper clothes on top of it another kid on the way." Nope, don't know any of them. Don't know you. Saw what you posted and what you have on your public profile. Also, decency doesn't mean audacity, which I think is what you meant when you said " I cannot believe you have the decency to compare Homeless people to those people"

RFT apparently is incapable of writing a story without getting a laugh at someone else's expense. Great journalism, guys!

These was unnecessary the first time RFT ran it, and is more than twice as insulting the RFT editors decided to re-run it. I'm still waiting for the RFT to photograph people in The Grove and post pics to mock the way they look.

Oh I see, you snoop a bit around my profile and think you can talk like you know me. Well Mrs Sherlock Holmes (Assuming you are Mrs) I see that just like with the individuals listed in the pictures in the article ignorance is bliss with you as well, on top of it you seem to lack a little comprehension because you obviously haven't properly read my comment at all. I said "What THEY consider fashion or whatever it is that they are displaying".....I'm happy they have support from someone such as yourself, considering they are probably milking your paycheck...lets take a good look at few facts here. When have you actually seen with your own eyes a Homeless person hanging out like that especially (AHEM SINCE I'M A PART OF THE WINTER OUTREACH) in WINTER or any season at all? I cannot believe you have the decency to compare Homeless people to those people, who obviously (NOTE THE PREGNANT WOMAN WITH HER PREGNANT BELLY HANGING OUT WITH ANOTHER KID SITTING IN HER CART) can afford proper clothes on top of it another kid on the way. If she can afford short shorts 3 times smaller her size she can afford a decent pair of pants...COMMON SENSE. In a sense you are also suggesting that only POOR people shop at Walmart, which is not the case!!! All these people pictured look like they have it better of then Homeless people...hey one even has a TATTOO she could afford with that being said she can afford proper clothes. Do not address me with your ignorance.

OML! I feel so badly for these people! They either have some sort of a medical problem or really do not care about their appearance.. I cput myself in their shoes and not laugh but tesr eye as they do not care any more

A) Show me someone who isn't judgmentsal on some level B) People used to care about their appearance when out in public... C) Modesty is no longer in the forefront of society so why should I be modest about what I say? D) I've worn pajamas to Walmart looking like a hot mess.... and I wouldn't be surprised to find myself on PoWm at some point. Lol

No homeless person has a tattoo? Really, is that what you think?

Many people buy clothing and get tattoos during their good years, then later fall into economic hard times. should everyone having economic hardtimes immediate trade in their short-shorts and pay to have tattoos removed to make you feel better about them?

CatBlade

 Lmfao. This is a pretty funny response. 


I think the pregnant pictures are unflattering and gross - BUT - who are we kidding? Let's get real when it comes to Missouri summers. The heat and humidity is so so so unbearable (and god I cannot even imagine what it feels like if you're pregnant) that you really do just want to strip down naked just to run out and pick up groceries.
