Sorry about that.

I know my grandma had issues with that when she was younger. I honestly rather wear something that fits my stomach rather than my chest. Which works for me because I'm on the small end. But why can't you take it in where you need it to be?
Because it's not the style of the shirt...I can't have everything customized. I had a few shift-style dresses nipped in the waist and it cost me a small fortune because they were fully lined.

It's just difficult to find tops that aren't button down but still show a silouhette. Almost every shirt that isn't button down doesn't have a waist on it...tunics, bohos, peasant tops..etc. They all make me look like a potato sack.

When people see me in those shirts they just assume my mid-section is large too. When I wear something fitted they always ask "did you lose weight?" LOL
But...I can't go too fitted either, at least not at work.

I'd love to have a boob reduction but they balance my figure so they are here to stay.

I'm a woman and my favorite body type is XCurvy Kate modelesque. Womanly, with no cellulite and slight definition. Its a fine balance for me between cellulite and muscle lady.

Kate Upton is super cute, but she is an apple shape. Or ruler with boobs. Definitely not curvy, unless using strategic camera angles

Example:

Very straight in the waist.

Compared to someone who does have a defined waist like Beyonce:

*** some people mistake the idea of saying someone is not "curvy" is the equivalent of calling them ugly. Let's just say although Beyonce and Kate Upton are likely in the same size neighborhood, they won't be switching clothing anytime soon.

Where after a thousand years have woman come up with this idea of washboard stomachs? How did this un-natural state in body shape come into being? Even with men this did not exist a couple of decades ago. In order to have muscles show and protrude on the abdomen - You have to do these totally un-natural repeated moves to get this effect....Imagine a cave man doing sit ups all day long...What would the point of that be....A bit of abdominal fat is simply an energy reserve...it's normal..

There was a dark haired girl from Chile..that I knew...she wanted to be like everybody else...She went to the gym EVERYDAY...Jogged her brains out...started eating like a bird...she shrunk by 40 pounds and dyed her hair blonde.....Funny how a naturally homely girl actually thinks they can make themselves beautiful...because the new standards of female beauty can seemingly be achieved artificially. She is not the real deal...She was more attractive in her natural state.

Well, thanks
I am going to disagree here. Breasts are made of dense tissue. And fat. Each woman has different ratios. Some women have more tissue, so their breast size us less variable than someone who has more fat.

There are quite a few 28h+ women walking around who don't have much to spare.

Yeah. losing 40 lbs is insane. Plus, dyed hair is bad for your overall health.
