    I’ve got the following problem:

    In a responsive design with percentage widths, I want all content to have some space left and right. So I gave the parent container some padding instead of giving every content element a margin.

    Here is an [example Pen](

    The problem is that I want some big images with a specific class to fill out the full width of the container. With fixed widths I would just give it a negative margin and increase the width accordingly.

    But as everything should be percentage based, I can’t figure out the best way to do it.
    I got it working with just playing with the width values but it doesn’t feel right.

    Any ideas?



    [Here…]( “”) how I would go about it.
