W28, Day 3: Jean Styles
In comparison to the remainder of the jeans, however, the low rise pair were a small sin. Every other pair were skinny jeans. While there are some people who look good in this style, skintight jeans that contrast your overly rounded thighs down to a narrow point are simply not flattering on overweight people...or I may go so far as to add most people in general. Yes, there are exceptions, but really, I'm much more a fan of the boot cut jean. They help to balance out your thighs by widening out a little at the foot.
When I was looking at pictures of jeans online in preparation for this blog entry, I found a gem of a jean. Have you ever considered the bikini jean? These are perfect if you want a stylin' bikini sewn onto your jeans that you are just dying for the world to see.
Well, now that you've see it, what do you think? Sexy, eh? I wonder how on Earth one bends over in these because even though they're tied on, it just looks uncomfortable. They must be a pain in the ass to wear. (There should be a joke in there somewhere, but I'll let it go.) I think you can only find these beauties in Japan or online for around a meager hundred dollars, but that's probably for the best. Here's another view in case you're still considering:
Yeah, classy. So, I went for the much more basic boot cut work pant today. But I was pretty excited because I'm a size 18 and the pants I bought were size 16. I also tried on two dresses (which I didn't buy) that while not super flattering, actually fit me in a size 16. And last Saturday I bought a pair of capris at Macy's in the same size. Oh happy day. I may not be losing any pounds, but obviously something is happening. It'll be a long time till I work my way fully into size 16 at all stores, but I'll feeling pretty good. Maybe I'll invest in a bikini jean....and then again, maybe not.
