We all have them. A few of us are proud of them. Most of us are unhappy with them. For the lucky few, they are high, rounded, small and glamorous. For most of us they are too big, too heavy, too wide, too fat, too thin, too shapeless, too saggy or just plain ugly. What are they? Butts. We slide them into stretch pants, squeeze them into skinny jeans, and plop them down in Lizard’ Thicket. We find them hitching up our skirts in the back and, occasionally, looking like a matched set of basketballs. A few of us have none at all. Bony butts can be artificially padded, but this is no real solution. What to do about butts!
If you are blessed with a charming, rounded bottom, enjoy it and be happy. You can wear anything you like and show it off.
If your butt is too skinny and bony, try pleats or shirring. They add bulk and the illusion of size. Long, loose tunics or jackets are always a good choice as well and tight belts can accentuate tiny butts very nicely.
If your butt is too heavy, too large or too cumbersome, go for loose fitting pants or skirts, gracefully falling drapes and long tunics and jackets. They can cover a multitude of sins. Stay clear of skinny jeans and stretch pants, since they only accentuate the negative.
This has been a week for butts. Most have not been particularly attractive and are rarely any woman’s most attractive feature after the age of twenty. Some are downright unwieldy. Whether too small, too large, too heavy, or too thin, we have to live with them. We can better our butts through exercise and diet, but many of our features are genetic and we are stuck with them. Choose clothing that accentuates the positive and eliminates the negative and you will be all right at Wet Seal, Starbuck’s, Books a Million, Waffle House, or wherever you go.
You never know when you’ll be sighted!
