While I was shopping New York & Company’s Labor Day sale, I came across this dress which I instantly thought would be perfect for the Blathering. I wanted to wear something a little unique and the print is definitely different for me. The dress seemed to be cut well for my shape, but it’s made from thin, clingy material and it emphasized all the wrong bulges. Ordinarily I’d just put the dress back, but it was on sale and I really loved it. Since my silhouette was the only problem I decided it might be time to invest in a…girdle. Yeah. I swore I’d never buy one, but, really, why not look as good as you can look? (I was already picturing myself looking fabulous in the dress.)
The problem is, when all my bulges are smoothed out my stomach starts to look like a bump and the cut of the dress makes it worse.
I know I should have taken a picture of the side view so you can see the full (non-baby) bump, but Thomas snapped this quick picture a month ago when I wore the dress somewhere else and I don’t want to put on the whole getup again for re-shoots.
