It’s weird how thin people will say their having a fat day where for a fat person, everyday is a fat day. Well you would think that wouldn’t you, but there are days where I don’t feel like I am the size that I am. But today wasn’t one of those days, I felt like a beached whale. Maybe it was the events of the weekend, the indulgence of a few cocktails, lack of sleep, or simply waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Whatever the reason, it’s easy to fall into the trap of cutting social commitments to hide out at home. While in the past I have been guilty of doing just that, I sucked in the gut and got dressed to go out to eat with a mate. The best thing to do when you feel your size and then some, is to dress more for comfort than for fashion. Not to say that the two can’t go hand in hand, but I found that confidence is the best accessory to any outfit and if you’re feeling self conscious, naturally want to cover up. My solution was to wear loose and in layers- my skirt turned strapless dress skimmed over everything, a belt help define my waist and held in place my drape front cardigan and the tights were protection against the parachute behaviour of my skirt.
