I've coveted one, either a denim nor cord pinafore, since last year. I resolved if I lost weight I would buy one. However, now I've lost weight I've had second thoughts. I'm 40, 5'9" and Size 16, I fear I will still look ridiculous. Are they just for petite thinner folk do you think???
No, they're not. Wear it with a pretty long sleeved top under it, plus plain leggings and boots. I'm 38 and I'm not petite, I have a cord one and it's (in my opinion) both practical and flattering. All the comfort of leggings, but with the dodgy bits covered and the conveniance of pockets. What's not to like? Do it.
I'm 5'11, 46 and size 16 18 and in denial, I have bought one in a size 14, which I know is not generally a good idea - but I love it and when I am a 14 again I will wear it... However, I have seen them on tall and not totally skinny women and thought they looked fab <not helping, sorry>
