I got this pencil skirt from Pinkyee (fyi mostly lingerie site), which is actually a corset skirt. I never knew these things existed. It isn’t steel boned, so it’s very comfortable to wear. It does tighten and/or loosen a bit, both in the front and in the back, to some extent. I like that the skirt is high waisted, which is really the reason why I got this skirt. The lace I just think of as mostly decoration. The quality is fair, but it is only $26!
I believe I now have two pairs of high waisted skirts that go below the knee and two high waisted pants. I think I want to slowly eliminate my low waist jeans and skirts when I can, because 1) it’s hard not to keep my back and undies from showing when I bend over, 2) high waisted bottoms make anyone look taller, and 3) they’re retro!
High waist anything doesn’t necessarily make you slender, so keep that in mind. It can play up existing curves but also make you look much bigger around the tush! Think of SNL’s “mom jeans.” It really is great for any body type, but it will make the pear shaped body look more pear shaped, which is not what most pears want. Although I am a pear myself, I still like high waist pants and skirts for the reasons I mentioned above.
On another note, have you all seen Ashton Kutcher’s speech at the teen choice award this year? It really took me by surprise. Since it didn’t win Video of the Day on Hannity’s show, I will put it up here. Listen and learn, young readers. Sexiness is about being smart.
