Muffin Tops

Ahhh, the muffin top. This seemingly enjoyable noun is actually…not so enjoyable. Now, I know that I am not in the best shape…and am definitely not one for over-exercising….however, I DO ask that people invest in a bathing suit that fits. Or-even better…a mirror? An honest friend? Some self-esteem?

For those of you confused, let me educate you on the muffin top.

Muffin tops: a) the delicious upper half of a breakfast bread; the best part! b) the large mid-section of someone, usu. A woman, squeezed into a too-tight pant, skirt, bikini bottom.

So, here’s what pushed me over my limit. I have been spending lots of time at our apartment pool (I’m unemployed, don’t judge me!) and repeatedly see girl after girl sporting a muffin top. How is this possible? Girls! Invest in a cover up, bathing suit that fits, or…dare I say it?? A TANKINI! Tankini’s can be very cute…and much more flattering than a string bikini too small on someone too large to wear it!

Let’s all make an honest effort to end muffin tops! I know that sometimes it makes us feel good when we can squeeze into a size smaller than we’re used to wearing….while not being able to move or breathe when wearing it. Does that mean we should actually buy and wear that article of clothing? Hell No! As my sister would say, “it’s a hot mess!” Just buy the things that fit…believe it or not, it’s actually more flattering!
