Here’s what it’s like to be a pear-shaped person:
You buy a top in a small because you know your top half is a small. You also realize that the item is final sale.
You mistakenly assume that the bottom of it is either stretchy or not so stretchy, but stretchy enough that it will look good.
It arrives in the mail.
You eagerly try it on. You try to straighten it out down past your hips.
And it doesn’t. Budge.
And now you do the reasonable thing. You tuck it into a skirt and call it a day.
You also forget to iron your tweed skirt and don’t realize it’s wrinkly until you look at the pictures.
