Why Marilyn never had a muffin-top!
The real reason- LOOK- her pants hit at her waistline! This same figure would have had a “muffin-top” if she were forced to wear today’s pants!
Here goes- O.K. world, fashion pet peeve, the “muffin-top”, and not for the reason you are thinking! I have a small muffin-top, however mine is created more, note I said more, by fashion than fat.
Why do I have a muffin top?
I need to do more sit-ups?
(Uh, yes, but that is beside the point)
Do I am blame it on having kids? (While they are not the direct cause there is only so much you can do when skin gets stretched!)
FACT: I weigh exactly 4 pound more today than when I graduated from college 21 years ago!
I blame it on the fashion industry for lowering waistlines to a ridiculous place- our hips!
It is called a WAISTline not a HIPline for crying out loud! Almost any woman can create a “muffin-top” on her hips- I challenge any woman with a decent figure to create a “muffin-top” at her WAIST!
Now that the 3-inch zipper trend which created more plumber-butts than the world should ever have been forced to see, the trend seems to be becoming kinder. I am looking forward to having a choice in my waistline- I love hipster pants, but would love to get some which hit a little higher so I wouldn’t have to feel like I am fighting the look of a muffin-top just to keep my pants up!
Fashion industry challenge- just label them honestly- don’t call them “hipster” call them “muffin-top makers” and see how many you sell!
