You're not pudgy, but the crop top isnt right for your shape ( it's not good for many shapes so please don't take that as an insult). Mod cut.

Default No

But showing your midsection like that just looks so tacky. Who are you dating, some guy from high school who refers to women as "chicks"?

Based on the picture, I think you look fine.

Oh, definitely--on a date that wouldn't be appropriate. But as casual summer attire, depending on the location (coastal town with beach culture, for example. Liberal areas with sunny weather), it can be within the realm of normal/acceptable for young people.

Thanks ^_^
That doesnt look like a crop top. It just looks like you rolled up a sweater.

Rolled down, the sweater would look fine on you. The pants are not flattering at all, though. They highlight the saddlebag area, which is not what you want.

I'm afraid that you do look a little pudgy. But that's what a crop top will do to most everyone. Don't emphasize features that are not your best! Accentuate the positive! You can find a better outfit that's much cuter for a date.

And unless you're like 18 or younger, crop tops are a little sleazy for a date anyway - what are you trying to convey?

It looks like OP has a little somethin' somethin' going on up top (no offense OP, i'm a woman andwish I had a little more up top haha) and a soft sweater would look nice to accentuate this area without screaming out LOOKATMEEEE haha...also if OP is like some of us, we don't have $$$ to run out to the mall buying the latest trends every 45 seconds...this is something that can be put together from stuff you already have to look presentable without breaking your bank

It's not my style but it might be yours. I give you one piece of advice. Very important especially for women.
Wear clothes that are a little too big. Anything that you have to squeeze yourself into will make you look bigger. It always does. Bigger clothes equals looking smaller. You're welcome.

You are an adorable girl. You're shaped like me -- thin, but softer around the middle. Trust me, girls w/ hard abs are for the most part born that way. I'm not saying they don't work out, but I'm saying that DNA plays a huge factor.

I had twins and ever since having two at the same time I've had a huge respect for DNA.

Take my legs. They look shapely and as if I work out. I get complimented often and friends ask me what my secret is. It's DNA.

So play up the best parts of you. Save yourself decades of learning that DNA makes all the difference.

And have fun!
