... I never thought I would say this, but I have an old apron that works wonders for my self confidence. It was given to me by my mother a little over a year ago, and it's a very fugly old thing. My mother's aunt sewed it to my mother years ago(when my mother was like 16 or something), it's brown with ugly little orange and white flowers on, and the cut is something straight out of the forties.

I dug it out yesterday to bake, and when I put it on.... I cannot remember the last time my waist looked so tiny! I was seriously shocked when I saw how tiny my waist is. I'm naturally pear shaped, with very generous hips(it makes finding pants that fit an absolute nightmare. If they fit over my hips, they're usually somewhere between 10 to 15 cm too long, and if the length fits they don't fit over my hips*sighs*.), and I'm kind of short(168 cm or 5"5') therefore I have a tendency to look a little chubby. But when I tied that apron it was like a revelation. I suddenly looked so very slim and I gave the illusion of a hourglass figure, my usually large hips balanced out by my tiny waist and my boobs. I have a generous C cup, but I still feel that my hips are way too large compared to them and my waist. But that apron made me feel good about my figure, and I actually felt sexy in that fugly old apron!

Is there a point to all this? Not at all, not besides the fact that sometimes old school/retro fashions can be amazingly good for your self image.
