I have a burning question for you. I have a couple of jersey dresses, which are so cute and comfy, but I don’t wear them that often because I have no idea how to do so without showing off
a) the outline of everything I’m wearing underneath
b) every unflattering ounce of body fat highlighted by what I’m wearing underneath (I don’t have back fat until I put on a bra, damnit)
c) every lump and bump in general.
Pretty much, these dresses look so cute on the hanger but when I put ’em on and look in the mirror, goodbye self-esteem. Is there a secret way to wear these that will keep my self-esteem intact? I’ve been wearing cute vintage slips underneath, but even that doesn’t solve things completely, and it’s a hassle to make sure the slip shows just enough that people know I’m showing it on purpose, you know? Okay jeez long question. I’m done now.
Jersey Girl(it’s late and that was the best wordplay I could think of)
I swear you are inside my head and reading my thoughts. I am in major need of new clothes (okay- major is a bit strong) But as everyone knows I moved West and need to stop layering like I am East. So I made it my mission to pick up some “throw and go” dresses (jersey dresses)
But in the dressing room- I am singing a different tune. You can see my bra, you can see the lace from my thong, you can see my belly button ring outline. It may sound sexy to some of you, but its not.
So I started to think of solutions. I was looking for something girdle-esqe but with out being a girdle. Where to go for a body slimming, line minimizing under garment. SPANX. If its good enough to on Mama Oprah’s favorite things its good enough for me.
Spanx also has tights, slips, and leg slimmers (which I find far too dorky-especially if you ever ended up having to remove clothes in front of anyone- if you know what I mean)
Find Spanx at Nordstrom. I have used Spamx products in the past (tights) they are worth every penny.
