I have a big bum – always have, always will. It’s a legacy I have to thank my mom for. Naturally, I love wearing skinny jeans or hip-hugging dresses, but I’ll always refuse, until the day I die, to try on bell-shaped or folded mini skirts. In the latter case, at the first gust of wind, I’d be showing more than I want to complete, innocent strangers.
So, while some think I’m fortunate, I know my struggles. I also know it’s a pain in the ass to have a lean column type of body (narrow shoulders, small bust, narrow hips, flat bottom).
It’s great for runway models, but not so great when you’re a regular person, just minding your own business, maybe buying a bus ticket, like this lady. I was considering giving her a break, because you can’t change what Nature gave you. And you shouldn’t. But it was a good opportunity to talk with you about how to dress when you have this body shape.
Surely, not a mini dress, that ends right under your bottom. Not a stretchy one, of course, that only shows the lack of booty. It’s not inspired and not something I would do for my chest area (I’m in between shapes – a bit inverted triangle, with an athletic look).
What should you do?
