Another packing dilemna for my upcoming trip. I have a black maxi skirt that would be great for a lot of sitting on trains and buses, but I'm not sure that I want to take a pair of sandals. Plus, we'll be up above the Arctic Circle for part of the time and I'm thinking that my toes might get cold. So, I was thinking of wearing Mary Janes or simple flats with this skirt.
But I don't think I have ever seen anyone wear a maxi skirt or dress with anything other than sandals. Would it look wierd?
this is embarassing, but i'm hoping somebody here can help!
we've talked about chub rub many times -- and i'm familiar with that as a (sometimes painful) red rash on inner thighs...but does anyone (else) get other symptoms? Like large painful sorta blister-things? i tend to get them in the fold between my (under)belly and my legs....very sore. i've found in the past that wearing spanx-type garments helps because it holds the belly away from the legs, so the thingies don't develop. But i HATE spanx and similar garments....so i'm wondering:
(1) does anyone else get these?
(2) what strategies do you use to avoid them or to treat them?
(3) what undies and clothing would you recommend to deal with them?
i'm 5'6", 330lbs with a rack o doom and a belly o doom and no butt to speak of.....any help would be muchly appreciated!
ETA: I just want to say thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!! For all the information and advice. And just for the validation that other people get this too. It's funny, I usually think of myself as refusing to be shamed about my body, demanding health care etc....but I confess, I cancelled a doctor's appt on Monday b/c i was too humiliated to ask my doctor about these lesions/boils....now i not only have some ideas for dealing with 'em but feel way more comfortable going to the doctor knowing that i'm not alone, other people get these. so again, thank you all!!!
Hello, Fatshionistas and associates!
I was wondering if any of you could help me find a skinny belt that would fit up to about 44". I'm hoping for leather, and would like it if it came both in black and in various bright solid colors. I'm not interested in Old Navy, because I feel their relegation of the plus-size department to online only is an asinine move, but I'm free to hear other suggestions.
