I’ve been carrying my pouch (aka muffin top) for most of my adult life. It has generated many “are you expecting questions” and is the reason why I recently started a collection of girdles and other stretchy support under things to help keep the pudge at bay. This peplum top seems to be the kryptonite to my pudge though and if I had any idea that the little flare of extra fabric would act as a camouflage for my incurable muffin top, I would have racked up a lot more of these a year ago.
What I Am Wearing!
The black leatherette peplum top was another amazing find at Macys. I am not affiliated with them, by the way (not for this post anyways) I just really love shopping there. I applied one of my holiday gift cards to this $29 purchase so it was actually free. I wore this to Blogher’s and Have to Have’s theater night in Manhattan last night where I saw The Heiress. I was planning to wear skinny jeans with the top but decided to go with a pencil skirt instead because it looked more formal. In lieu of the boots pictured here, I wore the outfit with ankle boots and tights. I anticipated that I would be walking a lot last night and these boots were not practical for that.
I am open to other suggestions on how I can hide my muffin top. Stretchy underthings are no fun!
