This topic has been at the top of my list lately. Actually, I started thinking about it seriously last summer when I was clothes shopping.
I am not a small woman. I am your average size 12. Not obese. I've been called voluptuous. A word I prefer over, say, pleasingly plump. I've also been called hefty by a drunk octogenarian who, after numerous neat scotches, told me that I was very sexy and there were lots of men out there who liked "hefty women" like me!
But, back to the topic. I was clothes shopping last summer and found this amazing black sheath dress at TJ Maxx for $7. Yes, that's right! Only$7. And it fit perfectly. The only problem was that I didn't like the little belly bulge I was sporting.
Thank god for mall lingerie stores.
Kohl's is my go to store when I want to find good deals and sufficient variety. In addition, I am rarely harrassed by store workers at Kohl's; and yet, I can easily find someone to help me if I really, really need help.
I needed a body shaper. I've never purchased one before and I wasn't sure what to get. As I perused the racks of black body shapers, I selected several styles and sizes... Bras built in, bras not built in. Body shapers, Spanx, Bali, Playtex...it's so difficult to choose! I finally settled on a black, braless, assets by Spanx.
It's lightweight and smooths all of my bulges so that sheath dress looks pretty damn sexy.
