Nil, you are probably correct ( as you said, that is just one example from your Mum) but I can also see a possibility of a woman who is not feeling good about her looks ( and I presume your Mum didn't, so felt she needed to have the tuck) and is actually hoping to stop her daughter from having what she perceives, rightly or wrongly, as being the same problems later on.
I wish but sadly this isn't my mother. Don't give her so much credit...She is in need to complain and bitch about everybody, all the time. No one is enough good for her, especially not her daughter...

You are right on one point, she is not feeling good about herself, but instead to want me to not feel like her, she actually wants me to feel worst than her. Because this way, she'll feel better about herself.

Yep, disturbing but believe me, I spend years to try to find her other reasons...

Ughm... those women look stunning! But if either of those photos are showing what one would call a "belly", you're sadly mistaken. How about some post birth bellies -do you know any men who worship those?

Actually, I know quite a few men who worship bellies like the one in the picture - my husband included.

Then again, I've long been known for "playing to the crowd" and for knowing my target audience... I've been heavy for a long, long time and learned early on that dating is a much happier experience - regardless of actual appearance - if you make sure you're dating guys who are not only your own type but for whom you are theirs.


Oh, and, those stunning women are most assuredly wearing "proper undergarments" for wearing those dresses, likely something along the line of this:

No doubt about it Peg

Even slimmer women look better in a hip hugging dress if they're wearing what that gal above has got on underneath.
It puts everything in the right place and gives the "poured into her dress" effect

Women naturally carry fat on the surface of the muscle, while men have fat behind the muscle.
A simple explanation as to why we get cellulite and they don't !
A thin woman can have some unfortunate curves in the wrong places.
For a pin-up visuals, the idea is to "erase" what is less appealing and create a soft harmony-

Oooh, I need me one of these! Can you still breathe in them or does all your fat get pushed up to the brain and down to the ankles?

I once bought a pair of those spanx pants in an attempt to suck it all in. About a half-hour later, a whole lot of gasping, and a near stroke I finally got them on only to have them endlessly roll up my thighs. So much so that airport security asked me to step aside into a private booth to see about the ribbed rolls of fabric I was sporting across my bikini zone.

Obviously I hadn't read the fine print which said you're not actually meant to move in them; rather you assume a good standing position and let people come to you.

No idea, I'm a bit too much of a "hippy chick" to wear such confining things

Bravo, thank you for the chuckle!

Sounds similar to the experience I have had with stockings (as opposed to pantyhose)... even with that gummy stuff on the top that's supposed to hold them up, they kept wanting to roll down.

Next time I'll not mess around with just bits and pieces and go whole-hog (as they say) and get something like this to keep everything in AND keep my hose up at the same time.
