Fun with Muffin Tops
Many people say that the top is the best part of the muffin, but when it comes to getting dressed, the top of the muffin is the worst part. My last entry was about fashion footwear, and since it's technically summer (but not really in New England), we'll talk about another style, no-no, the Muffin Top. Although they can often be seen year-round, they are particularly prevalent during warm weather. For those of you who may not know the terminology, a Muffin Top occurs when a woman puts on a pair of pants, particularly jeans, that are too tight in the waist and cause spillage. Muffin Top is usually accompanied by the too short t-shirt. Fashion has devolved quite a bit since I was a teenager. During that time, there's no way in hell that anyone would've considered showing a hint of belly flab. They say if you've got it, flaunt it. Well the converse is also true; if you ain't got it, keep it covered up. I'm all for loving your body, but in doing so, you need to take pride in your appearance. A bulging belly spilling out of the top of your pants is nothing to be proud of, but a body dressed in clothes that fit is always a winner, no matter what your size.
