Hips and Dips

Many people think that just because you have hips and a big ‘ole’ butt that you should avoid pencil skirts. I totally disagree with that fashion rule for the curvy. I think pencil skirts can highlight the shape of your body whether you are a size six with hips and/or butt or you are a size 18. When it comes to pencil skirts, I believe in getting the cut for your butt. I remember when I was in college and I had this male friend who would call me hips and dips because my hips and butt were the most prominent accessory on my body. You could see them coming from a mile away. Although I laughed at his joke (It was funny) it made me feel a little insecure about wearing anything fitted on the lower half of my body.

Then one day, I received a compliment from a gentle men caller (I love this phrase from The Glass Menagerie), who loved that I had ‘Big Ole’ hips and a booty that I decided to show them off. Ever since 2002 I’ve been putting them on display (See pic at top left). Now for those young ladies out there with hips and dips, I suggest that you put your lower half curves on display and check out this pencil sateen cobalt blue pencil skirt from Torrid Sizes 12-26

and for my small waist big hip ladies check out this pleated tulip skirt from Forever 21 sizes XS-XL

Just let it all hang out.

    You are the reason why I write this blog. Stop saying never. For your type it sounds like you need more form fitting pencil skirts. Pencil skirts in my opinion are not made to hide, they are made to accentuate or to add to your body what you think you dont have. For those of you with small hips. The narrower the skirt the better.

    I love my pencil skirt. I have a big ‘ole booty and I was scared too at first. When I got it and put it on, omg! You couldn’t tell me I wasn’t the sexiest thing walking around, lol. Great post!
