disc belts on large ladies

I have acquired 2 disc belts one in black and one in brown. I was wondering if they look stupid on large ladies worn over a knee-length denim skirt and black vest top?

How large is large?

WigWamBam · 12/08/2005 10:38

Are you talking size 16 or size 32, or somewhere in between?

madmarchhare · 12/08/2005 10:39

Aquired KS, have you nicked 'em

I think they enhance the roundness on some folks.

madmarchhare · 12/08/2005 10:41

Too much attention to the middle if your apple shape.

As a larger lady (16/18) I believe they can slim you - I wear mine with as big a V shape pointing down as I can and I THINK it elongates me and draws attention away from my fat tum !! I stand to be corrected and deeply embasrassed !!

KemalsStilletto · 12/08/2005 10:43

I got given them lol...not my choice initially but I am warming to them and think they add a bit of style to some outfits!

Are you a size 20 because of your hips, or a size 20 because of your tummy? If it's hips, I would sayy don't do it.

colditz · 12/08/2005 10:44

I think they can drag the eye away from a big tum if you wear the slung low on the hips

KemalsStilletto · 12/08/2005 10:44're skinny compared to me then!!! I think I will have to post an headless pic with/without the belt and see what you guys think!

definitely with but you dont look a 20. Are you a 20 because you feel that big?

KemalsStilletto · 12/08/2005 11:21
