Hi Everyone! Thanks for having me here today. I’d like to take this opportunity to talk a little bit about something near and dear to everyone’s heart — clothes. In particular I want to talk about the five worst articles of clothing that women endure in order to look sexy. They itch, constrict and pinch, and yet we keep wearing them again and again. Why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is simple — to make us feel and look sexy. Ah, the things that we do to attract the opposite sex.
1) The thong (AKA G-string) – It’s hard to be sexy when that tiny piece of fabric is riding up your but, isn’t it? I had a discussion about this on Facebook the other day. There are so many heroines in romance novels who are considered “kick ass.” Do you think that they could still be kick-ass and wear a thong? It would be hard to perform any type of martial arts if you are constantly picking your wedgie. Just sayin’. In my humble opinion, I think the “kick ass” heroine would probably have to wear grannie panties, don’t you think? Grannie panties may not be sexy, but they are much more comfortable and allow the heroine to forget about her but and focus on the bad guy. Don’t you agree?
2) High Heels – They don’t just hurt, but they can be bad for your health, affecting your posture, balance, back, hips, ankles and knees. Yet we still wear them. Why? Mostly because they add shape to the leg, and when we walk, we are forced to sway our hips more to offset our poor balance, drawing the men’s attention down to our nether-regions. There’s no doubt about it, heels LOOK sexy, but are they worth ruining your feet? Forget it. I’ll take a pair of fuzzy bunny slippers over high heels any day of the week. 😉
3) Girdle/Corset/other constricting clothing – Ever squeeze into jeans so tight that it makes your thighs tingle? Yeah, me too. When this happens, you’re affecting the nerve endings in your legs by wearing your jeans too tight. Take off those jeans and get into some baggy sweatpants. Much more comfortable, right?
Wearing constrictive clothing around the torso can affect digestion and breathing, leading to acid reflux or fainting spells. Why do you think so many Victorian Era women fainted? They didn’t have delicate constitutions or were overwhelmed by a masculine presence. It was those constrictive corsets. So why do we do it? Most women wear them to look and feel thinner and give them that sexy hourglass shape.
Wait a minute – we’ll look thinner? Where do I sign up? Who cares that I won’t be able to sit down? I look better standing up anyway.
4)Underwire bras – The very thing that helps support us can cause us harm. It presses and pinches, and when the bra gets old, the metal pokes through the fabric and stabs the side of your breast. Sexy, eh? Forget about the fact that your boobs are in a metal cage all day, it’s the metal poking us in the breast that makes me cringe.
So why do we do it ladies? Well, for people who are well endowed, it is one of the few ways that they can get support and not look like their breasts are hanging on the ground.
5)Short skirts – Let’s be honest, this type of clothing isn’t very practical. It barely covers our backside, and we are pulling it down all day in an effort not to scare any passing children. They can work if we have good legs, but many of us don’t, so we end up looking like we are standing on two sausages. Who’s bright idea was this? Most likely a guy came up with this concept so he could see more of our bodies without buying us dinner first, don’t you think?
So there you have it, my top five worst articles of clothing women wear to feel sexy. Do you agree with my assessment? Do you have your own article of clothing to add to the list? If so, then tell me about it! Meanwhile, here is a little bit about my newest releases.
