Size appropriate clothing

People need to understand that they are who they are whatever size that may be. If you have recently added a few extra “friends” you may need to re-evaluate your wardrobe. Wearing your size 11 jeans when you are now a size 15+ is not okay. You may think you can still fit into them, but the view from over here says you cannot. Muffin top is not only delicious, but it is extremely unflattering. Even on our skinny ladies of the world, muffin top is not okay. For those of you who do not know what muffin top is, I will explain. It is when you have packed yourself into a pair of pants that are too small for you and some pudge is spilling out over the top, thus creating the silhouette of a muffin top. Buy your pants so that they fit you, going a size bigger can make you look a size smaller. I am not saying buy baggy pants, just pants that fit. Another issue with smaller clothing especially with pants is having your legs look like sausages. They are squeezed into pants and every time you walk you look terrified you’re going to tear right out of them. Seeing a girl waddling in tight pants just because she is afraid of a higher number and what that will mean to her self esteem and confidence is just disheartening. Find out what size fits you most comfortably and try not to wear pants that are not your proper size just because you can squeeze into them. I get it, we have all been there where we do whatever we can to hold on to what used to be. It’s a human trait to hang on to things when we shouldn’t (unfortunately this is not a blog for ex boyfriends, another day perhaps). I find embracing who you are a much more effective way of moving on. It’s hard letting go, but please put down the jeans that just don’t fit anymore. You will feel much better once you wear clothes you aren’t afraid to tear in half and fit you properly.
