I'm not a prude but...

I'm not a total prude but I was looking through a recent clothing ad. and the names of these two items of clothing struck me as ....inappropriate.

This one is called the Divorcee Bralette. What does this bra have to do with being a divorcee?? I'm puzzled.

This is called the Stuffin' for the Muffin Trouser Jean. Again my reaction is what???

Holy shit! They're trying to bring mom jeans back! Look at the waist on those things. One more step and the belly button is gonzo.

yes the high waister 70's jeans are in this year.

Also may I say, if they look like that on a 90lb model I can only imagine what they would look like on a normal woman.

I like those jeans. I dont think a larger woman in them would be any worse than a larger woman in low cut jeans with their fat coming out over the side (hence muffin top). If they were the right size I think they could be flattering on most body types, not just super skinny. The problem is people dont wear the right size so things dont look good.

I'm gonna have to disagree with ya Lulu. But that's my M.O.

Well, of all the euphemisms they could have gone with, be glad they chose muffin!

Kasey I agree with you.

We went to the fair and oh my god the things that people stuff themselves into.

I think those jeans would look great. in fact when I saw them I thought they looked cute, but then I read and saw what they are called...I still think they are cute.

Adam I am shocked. We can't all wear ironic message tshirts with jeans and sneakers and look as cool as you do though:)

Soooo...are you saying I'd be cooler if I wore high-waisted jeans?

I'm just saying that you wouldn't need high waisted jeans to make your hips looked thinner if you stopped buying the flowy-frocky-dress blouse-whatever things that required a giant ass belt in a place where up until 4 years ago, needed no belt at all.

You'll regret it. Fashion is repetitive, just like history. Flare was out and then back in. Pencil was out and then back in. This crazy, snugness with the control-top pants and high belts thing is only a portent of the return of the whalebone corset. Just you wait.

Pretty soon you'll have to have friends over to lace you up so you can't breath. =P

Ah, it feels good to get a rant out somewhere.

Lulu, The jeans are cute. I like the "high" or natural waist line. I just thought they might be a little tight on me.

The real problem was the name but JD you're right I'm lucky.

Adam 2 questions
1. Was this comment about my clothes? Because this is all I have.
"flowy-frocky-dress blouse-whatever things that required a giant ass belt in a place where up until 4 years ago, needed no belt at all."
2. Did you have a cigarette after your rant?

No, it wasn't directed at your clothes Heather. Just a general rant. No cig either.
