Thank you. My shape is pretty good BUT I feel uncomfortable and stupid being 37 and dressing TOO young. There are certain things I can get away with but then sometimes, women think just because they "look good" for their age, they're pulling it off. They really aren't and we just see "older women trying to look younger".
I agree with age and weight appropriate.
I love the big bellied girls wearing tight clothes and the hip huggers, flab just coming out all over the place.
On my fat days I try to minimize my body, not let it all hang out (gross).
I think your post said it well. I wish I was a 19 year old size 2 but I am not. i want to look good but not stupid. I'm not fooling anyone into thinking that I am 19 just because I try to dress like a child. It looks ridiculous.
Nothing wrong with being trendy and fashionable but there are limits to what we can pull off past our 20s. I know women disagree but those are the same women that everyone makes fun of.
Also, I know the argument that you s/b able to wear whatever you want and who cares what anyone thinks! That's true also, but don't try to fool yourself into thinking that the high school/college kids will flock around you because they think you are their age. They just see an older woman trying to look like she is still in high school.
I like age/weight appropriate, absolutely. Be as trendy as you can without crossing the line into the absurd.
