2) If your gut sticks out farther in front of you than your boobs do, you might want to rethink the whole bare midriff concept.

while I think it's in poor taste to have a flabby midriff exposed, I went shopping Monday and could not find ONE pair of pants that fit in...well, let's say a "modest" way. So, I ended up buying none and feeling frustrated.

Thankfully, there's Eddie Bauer, and I will make a trip to their outlet soon. But women are really held at the mercy of the fashion industry if they shop at GAP, Bon, Mier & Frank, etc. Everything is cut lower these days.

It's hard these days to find modest casual attire, like tees and jeans. Well, not without looking like you rummaged through your boyfriend's closet.

Good point. The fashion industry is no help, being as monolithic as it is.
My wife can't find any jeans that aren't low-rise. With as slender as she is, it's not a disaster...but they still don't look as good on her as the jeans they were making 5-6 years ago. The worst thing in the world, to me, is this return to 70s crappy fashion. We left the 70s behind for a reason, you fools! Oh, well, every generation has to relearn the same mistakes, I guess.

You know what I hate most about these low jeans? They make the female butt look pretty much like a guy butt. The beauty of a female rear end is the gentle curve from the waist and the womanly swell of hips. But low-rise pants make even the most shapely girl and the most girlishly-slender both look square, blocky, and kinda squished.
Ugh! I feel like I've been in fashion hell for the last few years.
