Of a far more pressing nature though, is what to wear? Before my surgery I could hardly move and certainly couldn't lean forward to heave tight jeans on. Or really any trousers that didn't have a huge elastic waistband. I lived in the same pair of black wide stretchy trousers for longer than I care to admit. I have never been one for loose fitting, baggy clothing no matter how much I like it on other people. Somehow, it always just looks huge and wrong on me. What looks like this on some,
looks like this on me
No offence/offense Lena, but not a good look.
I have been looking online to see what's in fashion; the good news is that there are rather a lot of harem-looking trousers coming up this summer. They are certain to have stretch waists aren't they? The bad news is that a) I wouldn't know what to wear with them, and b) would end up looking ridiculous.
I would love to be able to pull something like this off, but even when I was 20 I couldn't.
So instead I'm going to leave you with something you might not thank me for, but I don't care - it's stuck in my head so it can be stuck in yours.
