Holy crap!! Gok, can you sort me out? Look like a bag'o'shite due to sleep deprivation, big bangers (32ff if you need to know!)wobbly post baby belly and big ol' hips. To top it all I've got alopecia areata, so my hair looks like it's been attacked by a crazy lady wielding an axe. What do you recommend to make me look feel better? big snogs from me xxx
I'm 6ft and between an 18 and a 16 (due to weight loss, who hoo), big hips, and a 9according to my friends) very noticeable waist - which is actually a size 16, it's my hips that let me down, however, I live in jeans and t-shirts and trainers or hiking boots. Some advice on how to make clothes sit better on me would be fab, also some general advice, I never wear heels becasue I think I look like a drag queen in them, but struggle to get shoes other than trainers as size 8 feet.
I'd rather have pins stuck in my eys, red hot pokers up my .... and fed mushrooms for a month than take all my clothes off for someone to tell me what clothes I should put back on. I'll stay looking scruffy and old ta very much. I'm sure you're great thou!
<<On knees>> You are my hero. I'm having a 50th big birthday Friday. My 14 yr old is trying to get me to look hip and happening, I think I should dress maturley more my age, is there a compromise do you think.
i have crap self esteem...only made a whole lot worse when i shop for clothes to find that the sizes are all to pot (12 in some, 14 in others, 16 in some...) the sales assistants are often young and sneery unhelpful, blah blah blah...
1. how do you see past the bad bits of yourself and maximize the good?
2. how do you make a shopping trip a happy and successful one?
I'm 5' 3" with 36H norks, a smallish waist, wobbly tum and I hate my short legs.
I go from loving my boobs to really hating them!! In photos all I ever see are these massive things stuck on my chest and I feel out of proportion. What kind of things will flatter my shape? Pleeeeease help!
My daughter adores you (so do I, secretly but don't tell dh). She desperately wants me to be Gokked, but I'd be far too embarrassed!
I am SHORT and FAT. If something goes round me then it's too long, and if it's the right length, then it's too tight. If it goes across my shoulders, then it doesn't go across my bum etc. These days, I just chuck stuff on and worry about the colours going together and don't much care whether something fits properly or not. Long full skirts are a boon, but I have terrible trouble with tops.
How do you balance out big norks, smallish normal bottoms? I am large chested (breastfeeding a 13week old, at the 34GG stage) so really struggle to get in anything other than large 14s and small 16s. Then on the bottom I'm swimming in 12's. I always feel so top heavy, and I notice myself hunching over to distract from the knockers.
I'm another 'suffering' in the big norks department. Lots of advice about things to wear for big boobs is targetted at those who are a D cup or something - not those of us who are starting to run out of letters in the alphabet. So what should we do with our J cups? Wrapover dresses don't even cover my nipples. Tops that fit at the boobs hang off my like a tent.
Any advice greatly appreciated. I too would love to be Gok'd. I look pretty decent naked but I HATE shopping so much and find it depressing. I make my 62 yr old mum buy for me!
I've just had my second baby and this time, unlike last time, I don't want to wear rubbish clothes while I wait to lose the baby weight.
I went shopping for clothes a few days ago, wanting to buy some jeans but post-pregnancy tummy made them all look rubbish as I needed an 18 to fit over my tummy but bottom and thighs are more like a 14-16.
Is there a style of jeans that will look good, or shall I just stick to skirts and tops and leggings and tunics for now?
I was a pear shape before. Now I'm probably still a pear shape with a tummy.
Do you not think that in some cases you're a bit cruel, building up someone's confidence/self esteem enough to go naked, when actually it is just a confidence thing, and they actually do look dire? (like I would).
I dont think anyone in the world could make me stop looking pg when I'm not. Even when I lost 3 stone I still looked huge in the belly. And anything supposedly flattering to the belly just ends up like maternity wear
Gigantaur, you looked beautiful the other day, and I mean that genuinely not in a showbiz way I have no idea if you have more than one set of clothes, but what you were wearing was fab, and (unlike me) you know how to use make up
