I wear jeans mostly. Need tops to keep me warm and hide the fat bits (tum, hips, arms, bum etc.

it depends on your shape. i am an apple and it is disaster, more like arthur fowler. therefore it must be rather nice on a pear.

i like a nice v neck with jeans or skirt and tights. or a uniqlo jumper dress with skinny jeans / leggings.

am waaay to chunky for anything involving skinny in the title or leggings.
am curvey - all over big curves.

well what shape are your jeans? is your bottom wider than your shoulders?

EccentricaGallumbits Thu 24-Sep-09 08:44:03

bottom about the same as shoulders. jeans are bootleg ones.
