    A REPRINT

    Sporty outfits that
    'lighten' heavy bottoms



    I HAPPEN to be one of those people who are gym-phobic. It started when I was working out and I overheard two trainers discussing the "burrito" at 50 degrees; one was wearing cycling shorts almost bursting at the seams because of her heavy thighs. The woman was very slim from the waist up but bottom-heavy. I went back to working out in the privacy of my room with my trusty videos.

    Most exercise clothes are designed to flatter women who are naturally thin or top-heavy with slim hips and legs. But the harsh truth is 70 percent of women-and that includes me-get heavy first in the hip and thigh areas, before anywhere else.


    I looked around stores for flattering gym gear that suited my body type and fitted my budget, and was surprised to find it in Converse-I didn't even know the brand had ladies' apparel. The price tag was very friendly and the material very durable and fade-resistant. A fab find: the long shorts with built-in briefs priced at 539 pesos that reached below the knee to midcalf, depending on height; made hips look slimmer and hid heavy thighs. Wear any tight shirt to show off slim torso.

    For those with heavy legs as well, I suggest you complete the look with the White Road Traveler sneakers at 1,790 pesos with a chunky retro style that makes calves look slimmer and longer. Modern technology has been harnessed to ensure comfort.

    Optional: I liked the quality of their absorbent shirt in cedar green/navy blue combination at P339.75. It had curves to flatter a woman's waistline. The cycling shorts offered tummy and buttocks control at 450 pesos.

    Do NOT read beauty magazines, they will only make you feel ugly.

    i shop at ukay-ukay shops. my favorite buys were my two pairs of dark red, pointed pumps at P50 each (ang usa kay stiletto), my white turtleneck priced at P10 and my black knitted shirtdress at P10 also.... so if u wanna get fashionable clothes at very low prices, go to ukay-ukay shops sa colon. =)

    Above all you should be comfortable with what you're wearing.

    start combining and raid your closets for the blazers, jackets and coats you have..i am only starting to realize that combining tops can be such an adventure given that you can use a number of combination for topwear

    i've overheard young guys commenting on girls wearing strapless thingies like bustiers or tubes or watever u col dem and wonder why tuga2x daw ug sul-ob and den mag sige ug bira d hul nyt to kip it up der.
    My advice wud be- if it makes u fil uncomfortable- ayaw nalang. Wear something els.
    Likewise wid wearing mini-skirts- specially in jeepneys.
    Kahibalo man kaha mo mag public transport mo- den y do u wear such things and wud spend a lot of time pulling it to ur knee wen u know its heavenly impossible. U wil just be wasting ur time doing so and u wil never look poised n confident wen u nid to be. Specially wen ur out on a date wen u shud b concentrating on d guy.
    Pls. lang - check wid a full-length mirror and look at urself honestly if u look ok. Also if ur not at ease wid d outfit ur wearing. Discard.
    Have a nice day everyone bisan ug cge ug ulan.
