Waist Not, Want Not
(Via Miss Selfridge)
Why are so many shops ruining perfectly nice dresses with elastic waist bands? I'm quite sure they can't do anyone any favours, figure-wise. And if you want a dress with a waist why would you choose the wishy-washy, gathered, can't be bothered to have an actual waist look that an elastic waist gives. You have to wear it with a belt, and the waist invariably doesn't sit where it should so that even with a belt round part of the hideous gathering always shows.
Why do it? Let's stop this right now. OK? Good, I'm glad that's settled.
