Special to El Observador
We’ve all been there before, when you are trying on all your clothes for that special night but nothing seems to fit. At the end you settle for that really nice pair of dark denim jeans, a cute blouse and some killer pumps; you look at yourself in the mirror and everything seems to fit just fine. Voila! You’re ready!But, are you really? Are clothes that fit “just fine” okay? Perhaps it’s time you really open your eyes and see yourself from the eyes of others. It’s about time you realize that denial is not a river ,but the state you might be in right now.
The only rolls that are good are the ones you buy at the bakery or the ones from chubby babies.
Overflowing fat that hangs over the top of your jeans is not cute. Muffin tops are not the business and so you should seriously reconsider the way you think. If black is not white, then why try to fit your size 18 butt into size 12 jeans?There is nothing wrong with being the size you are right now, unless it’s causing you health problems. So really reconsider your take on wearing the correct size clothes. Nine out of ten times muffin tops are caused by poor choices in clothing, so dress to minimize your figure.
The most common mistake women make is their choice in undergarments, and I can’t blame them. With low-rise everything, our views on what sexy should look like has been skewed by the fashion industry. Low-rise jeans, low-rise thongs, low-rise.. well, you get the point. There is absolutely nothing wrong with wearing undergarments with a little more support, like cute boy-shorts, or even some spanx. These will not only flatter your figure but they will enhance it.Another way of preventing spillage is by wearing jeans that have a mid-rise or high-rise waist. These will flatten your tummy without making it burst out at the top. Plus, low-rise jeans only look flattering on women without curves and, let me tell you, real women have curves. So ditch those skinny jeans and go for the ones that flatter your fabulous figure.
Finally, choose clothing that has more structure and is made out of thicker material. These will hug you in the right places without emphasizing your little love handles.
But if you just can’t part with any of your current items and refuse to get new ones, then don’t underestimate the power of layering. A cute jacket or long coat can do miracles for your shape and outfit. Also, don’t forget the colorful cardigans that are very season appropriate this time of the year.
Until next time!
