Now I look longingly at this photo I have when I was 17 years old, in memory of my awesome body figure. Though, I still have that particular mini dress I wore then, there is no chance I will fit into it *ever* again... unless of course, I could turn back time. (Wishful thinking!)
a lot of dieting and hard work to maintain my vital statistics of a 34-inch bust size (I wore a size 34B/75B cup bra by then!), a 25-inch waistline on my good days, and a 34-inch hip measurement. It was not exactly the "Coca-Cola" body (hourglass figure) that my Grandma boasted she had during her heydays, but I was happy with how I looked. Not even near Sophia Loren's but it was pretty good, if I must say so myself.
When we factor in the genes, some women may find themselves bigger than they anticipated. Whenever I browse through family photos, I can't help but notice that most of the women in my family tree are indeed endomorphic (or pear-shaped, which is not necessarily a bad thing). Maybe in 20 or 30 years, I'll probably look just like one of them.

Real women have curves. Right now, I think I got enough curves to warrant a "DANGEROUS CURVES AHEAD" warning. Tee hee. For me, it's not just about looking good, it's actually about feeling good and being comfortable with your body.

which is up two sizes from my previous size. OMG! I was a size 4 only 2 years ago! Although I can still rock a decent formal wear with the help of slightly padded long bras, body shapers for tummy control, or body suits for ultimate shape.
Wacoal products to back me up so I can look good and feel good whatever body size I turn to be!
