    Note to self: 36Gs will never fit in a Victoria's Secret Large lol.

    sorry, for some reason that made me laugh my ass off because I'm like that. I try to fit into pants of a size I "used" to wear, lol it's too funny!!!!!

Short body, long legs....sigh, why can't I have both? I guess I'm borderline plus too, I can wear anything from size 8 to 12, it's so crazy!
      Oohhh..I'm short-waisted and like you it's soo hard finding clothes that make you look lonnnnngggg... ha ha..even jeans I have the hardest time finding something that fits right cause my torso is non existent. I lost weight hoping it would help but it doesn't.. ha ha..I still look like I have a chest then straight to hips no in-between.

          I have the opposite problem.... Long body and the legs stopped growing at six years old. I can not sit in a compact car,my heads hits the roof and my feet barely touch the floor. Oh well we're not cookie cutter chicks

              I hate looking for jeans! The butt, and thighs fit perfectly, but I can never do up the button without making it look like I have two stomachs! Why does the button have to dig in so far? I never do up the top button. The zipper zips up fine, so I try to hide the fly away tips with a belt.

                Okay ladies,

                I leave next saturday for Cuba and I have a minor problem.

                I need to find a bra or something supportive for the "girls" but I can't find either a) anything that fits and B) a bra where the band does not poke out of the back of the dress.

                I found 1 bra that might have worked but they didn't have my size in the store and would have to order it in, and there was no guarantee it would arrive before I left. Also, there was no guarantee that it would even work.

                So, I need something that I can get now that will keep the "girls" up and won't show under the dress. My MOH suggested duct tape, lol, but I'm not liking that idea.

                Any suggestions?

                  Don't know if this helps. I found a bra at Lane Bryant. This bra actually had a comfortable strip of boning about an inch from the side of the cup (like under the arm pit).

                  I LOVE this bra and ended up buying 3 of them. The white one, I got a seamstress to cut off the straps & top of the cup so that I could use it as a strapless. It's perfect!

                  That's my suggestion cause I can't think of anything else lol

                      awww I feel for you! That sounds all too familiar to me! With the jeans, what I do is buy the low rise so that I'm not losing what little waist-length I have to pants that sit too high up. I find it seems to help but the problem with the low rise jeans is that my pooch hangs over the edge of it so sometimes it might look like I'm preggers haha. I don't know what to do, where a corset 24/7 under all my clothes I guess?
