What Not to Wear: A Gut and G-Cups

Monday, December 17, 2012

Today I have discovered Fashion bloggers. I’m not going to say anything about any of them yet because I don’t know internet blogging etiquette . . .

OK. I lied. I just came across Fatshopaholic. That lady is the business. I would like to marry her blog and let our hypothetical, chubby, ultraliterate progeny take over the blogosphere.
Alas, Computer Love is only a song. Sigh.

Well, I’m looking for information on plus size bloggers because I need help. I’ve said it, and I will say it again—The Gutstapo is out to get me. My stomach runs my life. Today, I tried on a size 24 dress. Breasts? Check. Hips? Check. Gut? Heck no. The evil was trying to pour out through my waist. I looked like a scene from Constantine.

So, I’m seeking some information about how to dress with a gut. I’m working to accept myself exactly as I am right now. That means I want to be my best today, whether I have a flat or fat stomach. I still have to wear clothes, and I’d like to look and feel good in whatever I wear.

Wish me luck,

    I have a love hate relationship with fashionbloggers. Because I have not the money, creative skill, nor* time to follow their awesome and wonderful lead. But occasionally getting lost in them and in pinterest helps me make better choices every couple months when I go to either Goodwill or (if I'm rolling in the dough) Target.

    *(Also, you are a writer. I'm not sure if my use of "nor" was appropriate above as I have always been told it only goes with "neither." But I play fast and lose with the English language, so please forgive if it offends.)

    I love the comparison to Constantine! Wonderful, wonderful way to compare!

    I hvae a fat roll that is quite large and I have always had it. I used to wear bigger shirts to hide it, but that only made me look fatter because it looked like I was wearing maternity clothes. So Lane Bryant used to get most of my clothing expenditures. However, Dress Barn then became my favorite place to shop as they cater to our extra padding in part of their store, and not everything is way too big.

    I guess it all depends on how comfortable you are with allowing your gut to show... nothing uber tight, but don't go baggy either. I has taken me 38 years to understand that baggy is not better. Wear something that gits and maybe hugs, and try a torso shaper. They don't work for me as my fat roll either pushes it to roll up or roll down and then constrict and cut me in half!

    But, I am proud to say that after 4 monfths of measuring, I have finally lost 6 inches in my fat roll alone. So there is a happy ending out there somewhere, it just takes time!!

    Good luck with it and if you find the miracle cure, please do tell!
