Flirt Your Way to A Sweet Ass - Meggan Ravazzolo

Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Losing pregnancy weight (or weight in general) stinks. Actually losing weight is great…dieting stinks, as does buying and re-buying different size clothes as you slide up and down the scale.   For me, my post pregnancy weight loss has been a long journey and like any journey worth taking it was not a straight line.  Lots of stops and starts – hills and valleys (and I am not just talking the hills and valleys on the back of my thighs…love you thighs!)  I also didn’t want to ”waste money” buying new clothes until I reached “my weight”, but in the meantime I literally was wearing the same thing everyday and looking pretty schlempy.   It wasn’t good. That is when I decided that I was WORTH some new clothes and did not have to be the PERFECT weight to still look put together.  I was thrilled when I discovered the FLIRT Jeans from Old Navy, and I did not have to spend a fortune.   The trick to the Flirt Jean is they are mid-rise which helps tame the tummy and hold it all back without going so far as the dreaded “classic cut” route. You know…”high waisted”, “easy rider”, “Mom jeans”, whatever you call it, those jeans are evil and guarantee your husband will never give you that second baby you want.  The Flirt Jeans haven’t gone unnoticed by the fashion mags either, having recently been written up in Glamour magazine. They are 87% cotton so they don’t have as much give as I would like, but at roughly $30.00 retail and between $20.00 and $25.00 online (www.oldnavy.com) they are worth picking up several pairs. Old Navy Flirt Jeans also have several cuts and washes to play around with including plus, tall, and petite. 
If you love your jeans on the fancy designer side, but don’t have your fancy designer ass yet, the Flirt Jean by Old Navy will bridge the distance and get you through.  Love yourself and your ass ladies, no matter the size!

What a creative way to look at this "issue!" Very funny!! I look forward to the day when waist heights rise again (although I will go up two sizes when that happens! YIKES!)

Whether you are losing pregnancy weight or just weight in general (like myself), I agree it's difficult to go out and buy clothes that may not fit you in a few months. I too once just wore the same few outfits several days a week. Then I found Old Navy's clothes. The are cute and fashionable, and cheap! I don't feel guilty buying clothes that I may not fit a month later when I only spent $20 on a pair of jeans! And it sure beats walking around town in the same shirt and pair of pants every day of the week!

Right now i've lost a much needed 35lbs *yay me* I refuse to go buy new clothes because i will be loosing more weight. What i have done is talked to my "fatter" friends *giggle* and asked them if they have any thing they can part with for an exchange or trade. SO far i've ended up with about 10 pairs of Old Navy brand and Tomy jeans I also go to the local consignment for tops, tanks and blouses. This works for me because i have a long way to go and don't want new things only worn once in my dresser. BUT this works for you gals that have 20 or so lbs to shed. Good luck.........
