Ok so can we be real here?
I try to be positive as much as possible because, I mean….who wants to live in a life full of sorrow and sadness?
But y’all….let’s talk about something that really irks my nerves….
As you’ve read from the title, today’s conversation is going to be all about being a big booty gal.
Now, I don’t have a rear that makes it hard to get through doors or knocks over small children.
However, my booty is quite rotund and can make it VERY DIFFICULT to shop for. Ughhh….
If any of yall have a rotund, wide, or an all-around big booty, then you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
Why are you talking about this Dee? Well, because it’s my blog and I want to?
But the real reason is because I was taking a picture (I take one every 30 days to track my progress) and noticed that my butt felt and looked like it was a bit higher on my neck (thanks to those squat jumps).
Also, I went to the store to try on some clothes recently and literally could not get the bottoms past my butt. I cried internally and laughed externally at this debacle and sheer disappointment my booty caused during my shopping trip.
Luckily, I can’t really stand wearing jeans and slacks, so I don’t go shopping for them that often. However, I still like wearing them from time to time! But even then, dresses and skirts can be a bit of a challenge too. There is about a 14 inch difference between my waist and hips, so needless to say, I’m bound to struggle no matter what bottom I shop for. It’s so bad that it’s gotten to a point where I have to put my skirts on OVER.MY.HEAD.
People used to tell me that I didn’t have a big butt until they saw me in a pair of leggings or fitted jeans. I was taught from a very young age to conceal my body, dress modestly, etc. So I always made a point to make sure that my outfits weren’t too revealing.
I’ve learned to embrace the booty aka just deal with it. I’m still pretty conservative with the way that I dress, so I still tend to conceal. But let me tell you boo, it can be challenging trying to dress modestly when everything is fitted down below.
I know I’m not alone in this struggle, right?! I mean, most people I know have issues with their bust (back and shoulder problems, fit issues, etc.), but I don’t know of many that have the booty issue. I’m so thankful that I don’t have bust issues because I’d end up looking like one of those duck thingy’s that tip back and forth…y’all know what I’m talking about.
On a positive note though, I was able to find 2 pairs of jeans from that trip to the store….after trying on 40 pairs (no joke – I was in there for 2 hours)…
*Le sigh* I’m sticking to sweat pants…
