Is your child a member of the muffin top club? You are familiar with the term muffin top right? It’s when you wear jeans and the bulge of fat hangs over the waist band of the jeans. I see a lot of teenage girls with muffin tops, and occasionally adult women. I try hard to cover my stomach, I’m a muffin, biscuit, pancake, crescent roll and whatever other bread product you can think of.
There’s also the term split muffin top. Now that’s when your pants are low enough when you bend over to see the top of your butt crack, as if somebody would be interested in seeing that. Some of us are comfortable enough to let it all hang out. Normally I would say more power to you, if you think you look good work with it. However, I’m sick of seeing muffins in every shape size and color imaginable. Check out this video on YouTube, we are turning into a Muffin Top Nation people we really are.
Low-rider jeans are the culprit. We used to call them hip huggers back in the day. When we wore them in the 70’s, they sat low on the hips so the belly button would be exposed. Their purpose these days are beyond me. Can somebody explain their purpose in the 2000’s.
We need to educate our daughters on how to dress appropriately moms. When we see them heading out the door in this ensemble, we need to stop them. If you can’t find it in your heart to stop them, damn it, send the fashion police after them. They need to learn that it is not attractive. I love seeing our teenage girls with confidence and self-esteem, but this is neither. We must teach them confidence, self-esteem and self-worth. They must learn that just because a certain type of clothing is on the market doesn’t mean they can wear it, and it doesn’t make them unfashionable or less for it. Fashion etiquette starts at home moms. You don’t have to be a Fashionista be able to determine that this is not acceptable.
Leave us a comment on what you think about the insurgence of muffin tops that have invaded us. Do you agree that fashion etiquette starts at home? Are you seeing muffin tops in your area? Is your child a member of the muffin top club? We would love to hear from you.
