How should we over-size-10s be styling them?
I was thinking of buying these perhaps but what to wear with.

My ds is 18 and once you have seen them on his girl friends you know that size 8 toned and YOUNG is the only way they look as they are supposed to! Otherwise at your own risk. Opaques ankle boots and fine knit loose jumper

This top perhaps?

Themumsnot Wed 05-Dec-12 13:50:06

Good plan Dexter. I was going to get the glitter bra linked to yesterday, but they don't have it in 36GG. That top would be much better as I could just let the bits it didn't cover escape out the bottom.

Noddy - No need to play it safe with the opaque and ankle boot thing. I'm only 48. I'll get a spray tan and perhaps these sandals

Side boob is supposed to be very sexy so a bit of top and bottom boob added in would just make you look even sexier!

Themumsnot Wed 05-Dec-12 13:55:54

Exactly so. Mind you my boobs have dropped a few inches after all the years of breastfeeding but I could probably hold the top on with tit tape.

Dexter your link made me properly gaffaw!

Zwitterion Wed 05-Dec-12 14:10:46

Or guffaw even

Nipple tassels might work as an alternative to an actual top. When the temperature is sub zero outside you want to make sure you have as little as possible on making your way from one bar to the next.

I would team them up with a mesh body stocking underneath. Layering is in.

OOO I want!

sprays kylie's new perfume on arse

FlimFlamMerrilyOnHigh Wed 05-Dec-12 14:16:25

Ooh thanks guys. Now I have my school-run outfit for tomorrow all planned out.

Themumsnot Wed 05-Dec-12 14:18:09

Good tip Nil. And so much cheaper than a tunic too. In every possible sense
That's tonight's school concert outfit covered (as it were).

Themumsnot Wed 05-Dec-12 14:19:12

Do you get an arse like Kylie's if you do that, laptop?

laptopdancer Wed 05-Dec-12 15:18:00

Damn right.

Amblin Wed 05-Dec-12 16:09:04

I'd love some. I have waxed mango ones

Amblin Wed 05-Dec-12 16:10:19

Oh don't tease. I really love. !

Amblin Wed 05-Dec-12 16:10:59

Rather sequin shorts than a frumpy tunic.

Those nipple tassels wouldn't cover my nipples Themumsnot blush

noddyholder Wed 05-Dec-12 16:26:05

I love shorts but not sequinned ones unless you are riding a circus horse

Themumsnotroastingonanopenfire Wed 05-Dec-12 16:44:22

Looks like your nipples would be too hot to hold them, Chestnuts.
I see great minds are thinking alike re Christmas names. grin

If your age is more than double your dress size, you should not be wearing them.

Zoe Ball doth not a style icon make.

Themumsnotroastingonanopenfire Wed 05-Dec-12 17:21:39

So let me get this straight. If you are a size 8 you cannot wear sequin shorts if you are 17 or over.
While if you are my age you are fine to wear them as long as you are a size 24 or less.

noddyholder Wed 05-Dec-12 17:27:28

grin the MN rules! IF you look and feel good I don't think anyone off this board gives a hoot

PerryCombover Wed 05-Dec-12 17:30:23

They are miles better than a short skirt
