I have a payment due in two weeks for a piece of work
I want to spend a bit on clothes but not a fortune. I will have about £150 to spend. I'm still losing weight but need some clothes to do for now
I am short (5ft1) a size 12 on top and a 14 on the bottom, and boy do I have a bottom, massive arse and huge thighs. I'd like a whole new wardrobe, but realistically a couple of decent pair of jeans and some tops will have to do.
I second the poster up-thread about trying straight slim jeans, skinnies look awful on me too for the same reason as you, OP, but straights are really good. I have some really nice Fatface ones, they have a waistband which is higher up at the back - so no gaping. Also the dresses and thick tights - I have massive norks though, so empire line are better for me. And never wear high-necked stuff unless you are flat - chested, it makes you look as if you have a huge ski-slope of bosom.
I am not dressed yet thanks boss for the email at 7.30 but when I do I am planning to wear a dress with the slimmy sucky in thingy and tights and boots. And my new foundation with the wanky primer. Shall have to nick some of DDs moisturiser though because I don't actually possess any of my own
Yes to wearing dresses with tights and boots. I'm a similar shape to you although a bit shorter with bigger boobs and had a revelation last year when I realized that I don't HAVE to wear jeans. Yes they can look fab on some people, yes they are the daily uniform for a huge swathe of women in this country BUT they don't suit me and rarely feel comfortable and from now on I'm only wearing things that feel good and look good on.
After years of trousers, I have embraced skirts and dresses (with opaques or boots) and it is a revelation. I feel so much better, despite having actually gained weight since I had my second DS (its being at home with limitless access to the cakes and bisuits, and the almost daily visits to cafes!).
I am short too, but more pear shaped than you. I buy loads in Boden petite (though I probably return more than I keep as I find it a bit hit and miss), M&S, Phase Eight, Hobbs, Wallis and a bit of Debenhams. And Gap for jeans (curvy).
Skirts and dresses are the way forward. I feel better in them, and I carry myself with more confidence and happiness.
