Is it just me or does this woman instantly look like a man? No woman looks attractive when it appears that she may actually be a transvestite. Now don't get me wrong- I love me some gays, lesbians, transvestites, etc. I love them all and they are fabulous. But this isn't right.
I do not have a flat stomach. Honestly- I don't know if I ever did. If I did I certainly don't remember it. But you wouldn't know it because I? Know how to shop FOR MY SIZE. Take the woman in the picture above. Really? If you don't have a flat stomach you do one of two things: find a better cut dress or buy the next size up. Don't squeeze into something that doesn't flatter your body type and then complain about being fat.
When I go shopping I try everything on. There's this whole routine I do. Pants? Try them on- look in a mirror over every angle at least twice. Sit down- evaluate how I look sitting down. With legs crossed and uncrossed. Is there a gap in the back? Do my thighs look big? Do my legs look short? When I sit does it make my stomach roll?
If it's a shirt I try it on and evaluate all angles and the sit down test. I bend over (how much of a show am I going to give?), I jump around, I do light jogging in place- how does the bra placement and boobs look after activity? Does the shirt ride up? Does it come to the middle of my ass? I do windmills with my arms- can I even move my arms?
All of this. Before I buy the damn thing. I won't wear shirts that make my stomach look big or make it look like I have a roll (which is gone when I stand up now..thank you fuckmill). I am ubber picky about skirts/dresses. I have short legs so I don't want to look stumpy.
I am convinced if the women of America would just stop obsessing over the number on their clothes we wouldn't need Spanx. I have 3 different pant sizes- depends on where I shop. Same with shirts, it is a different size depending on the cut and where I am buying it.
And I've always wanted to ask a guy- have you ever taken a chick home wearing a Spanx? How does sex work? Obviously if it were me I'm not undressing in front of a guy if I'm wearing control top anything or any kind of body shaper. Those are hideous and frankly, they are scary. I am sure that you could break a rib if you put one on that is a size too small. But let's say you are with this chick- super hot in the club. You think she is all that AND a bag of chips. Not even the .50 fun size bag but like the .99 bag of chips. You take her home..or wherever...you're getting frisky. She takes off her shirt and BAM! Three sizes of fat comes pouring out. Do you stop? Make up a story about how this obviously isn't going to work out? Or do you just finish it out thinking you've been deceived? And you know you have some Bel Biv Devoe going through your head (that girl is poison...) (is that in your head? Mine too. My bad.)
And really? Aren't you (talking to you, ladies) setting yourself up to have a low self esteem moment? You KNOW that guy is going to gasp. Just like when you gasp when he takes his pants off. You try not to but sometimes it just comes out. I would rather learn how to buy the correct size for me so I look really good in the clothes I have and then let my partner know exactly what he's working with. I mean, it's only right.
So I'd love to hear what other people think about this.
