Not that I'm fashion police, but

I reckon if you have really large boobs, then - unless you're wearing a magnificently cantilevered brassiere - you shouldn't wear a high-waisted skirt. It just makes you look like your boobies have dropped.

In case you're wondering, I didn't come by this snippet of style advice from looking in the mirror. Because I hate having a waistband that comes up to my armpits. But I do look at what other people wear...

You better watch out!

ah yes I completely agree. I find a lot of the fashions these days make me look (as Ray pointed out) like two marshmallows stuck together...

I think it's called "Empire Waist".
Looks like "Pre-Maternity" to me.

donnasoowho: It would be so handy if magazines showed pictures of fashions modelled by normal-sized women - then it'd be easier to determine whether they would look any good on us. But that wouldn't be good business I suppose...

nigel: on a top or a dress it's an empire waist. On pants or a skirts it's just high-waisted. And the latter doesn't look pre-maternity because it's a tight fit about the abs.

Ah.
You'd think Id know more about women's clothes that I'm in another relationship but I guess not.

nigel: actually you're doing really well - most guys call everything a woman wears "a dress".

Hmm, I think there are 2 things at fault a) mirrors in changing rooms (which lie, are you have said yourself) and also b) shop assistants who tell you you look 'fabulous' when in fact you look like 2 marshmallows stuck together. If Ray had been there, I wouldn't have bought the frock cause he'd have been able to tell me. Instead, I was under the illusion that i looked fabulous and wore it in public before he decided to say "actually....". Luckily, all of me has grown recently and I no longer fit into the dress so I gave it to my neighbour.

donnasoowho: yeah it's good to get an honest opinion from someone who doesn't mind standing around while you try clothes on. Unfortunately for me, I can't get psyched to clothes-shop unless I'm shopping alone.
