What to Wear for Thanksgiving

When deciding what to wear for your Thanksgiving feast, choose something that will nicely accommodate a full belly. A typical Thanksgiving meal runs around 3,000 calories, so here’s a couple tips for what to wear for Thanksgiving:

  1. Wear a top with an empire waist. This paisley tunic has lots of fullness which will give you a plenty of room to digest.

  2. Wear a top with a blousing effect. This rectangular tunic shirt gets some nice shape to it when you add a belt. Take a deep breath and the blousing effect will naturally occur, giving you some extra wiggle room at the waist. No one will know if that’s air or skin under there!

  3. Wear an extra layer like a cardigan or vest which will nicely conceal any fullness in your midriff.

What will you be wearing for the biggest feast of 2010? 3,000 calories, here I come…

Happy Thanksgiving!

Swimsuits that Hide Thighs and Derriere

There has been lots of excitement around our last swimsuit segment, How to Maximize a Small Bust.  Another thing that women have been requesting is swimsuits that hide thighs and derriere.  If this is something you look for in a swimsuit, look no further!

With the onset of tankinis, you can have a top that covers up and choose a bottom of your choice.  For extra coverage to hide thighs and derrieres, consider wearing a skirt.

Shade Swim Skirt with Bottoms $22.99

Boy short bottoms are another favorite for girls that want to have a little more coverage for their legs.  The Mod Bod has retro swim bottoms in brown and black that you can mix and match with your suits.

Ultimately, pairing a one of these dark colored full coverage bottoms with a patterned top is best.  This will draw the eyes up and take the focus away from what you’re trying to hide.

This zebra inspired top with a dark bottom is a great example from Lime Ricki.

So class, hope these ideas help when you’re shopping for a swimsuit to hide thighs and derriere.
