Ladies, are you sick and tired of putting on jeans, pants, slacks which are made to fit approximately two inches above your crotch? I for one have had a GUT FULL (pun intended) of the apparel industry trying to convince me this is the height of fashion. WHO the heck looks good in these garments from some brain washing torture tank? I dare say even Twiggy herself (back in the day) would have looked like someone inflicted with a deformed body when donning these bizarre devices. Every time I am stupid enough to buy another pair--quite frankly out of desperation since there are no options---I regret it. Spending the day pulling said pants up is a nightmare and with jeans--they stretch as the day goes on so the tugging picks up steam. I should wear suspenders, but the roll around my middle (I like to call it my love handles) would be even more emphasized. AND speaking of rolls, unless your stomach is flat as an ironing board--NOTHING could possibly be any more unflattering than having your pants hit just below your belly roll. We ended up having to resort to our wonderful yoga pants in desperation, when these things hit the stores, for something that would stay up AND THEN--they also began making those as low riders. WHAT THE HECK! The men complain about the yoga pants and the leggings, but what are we to do when every other style of pants is pure unadulterated torture! I have my theory---the garment industry is saving money by decreasing the fabric needed and still charging us the same price. GET A CLUE---OUR WAISTS ARE NOT TWO INCHES ABOVE OUR CROTCH! WE HATE THIS STYLE! If we don't stand up for what is right now, the next thing you know they will be insisting we have our underwear showing!
OH--so glad I thought of this---LOOK GUYS---we DO NOT want to see your underwear and WHY would you walk around having to hold up your pants? Could this possibly be comfortable? Pull your pants up or walk around in your underwear--but stop this idiotic trend!
WHICH brings me all the way to underwear---IF you are going to wear these crazy low pants---you have to wear the crazy excuse for underwear they sell now. I DON"T CARE WHAT YOU YOUNG GIRLS SAY---having a string lodged in your butt crack is NEVER comfortable. Trust me---I have had the occasion to wear pants they creeped in that direction---IT IS MISERABLE!
What I find really ironic is the fashion industry gears their offerings to the young. HELLO---I am part of the Baby Boomers---the LARGEST segment of the population. The ones with the money. And you are gearing your fashion to the 20 year old-how much sense does that make? I will admit they buy more clothes than we do--BUT there are a lot more of us! What is that great line from "Fried Green Tomatoes"---"Face it girls, I'm older and have more insurance." The same principle---we have more money to spend on clothes--but who wants to buy what you are offering? You are missing the boat---BIG TIME--by not designing clothes for middle aged to older women that are comfortable and fashionable---not torturous and trendy.
RANT OVER---I'm feeling better--How about you?
A joyful heart makes a cheerful face, But when the heart is sad, the spirit is broken.
