The other day, I was reading my ADVO coupons – the ones that come with the Columbia Flier. And I found this on the back page:
A couple of things struck me as quite remarkable and possibly even unbelievable. (Sorry, I can be a skeptic sometimes!)
– How could one squeeze into a bathing suit powerful enough to squish in 4 sizes?
– Why aren’t her limbs oozing out a the end of the suit? I mean, is this suit so amazing that it slims the parts that aren’t even in the bathing suit? Wow.
– Why would a company brilliant enough to make such a miracle suit charge only $9.95? Are they philanthropists? Working to help boost the self-esteem of bathing suit wearers everywhere?
– If I was willing to pay – say – double or even triple, could they make it for me in a nicer pattern?
So this got me thinking. Are there other miraculous pieces of clothing out there? I know (because Stacy and Clinton told me) that some things are more flattering for our figures than others. But what I had to know was… is this an isolated incident?
Inquiring minds want to know.
So I had this photo taken in the pink dress. Not my most flattering look, but hey, this is a bare-all, no ego blog, right?
I went searching for the perfect fabric. The perfect design. Could I create a dress that would make me look 40 pounds thinner? Four whole dress sizes? Like the bathing suit? It wouldn’t be easy.
But check this out.
But I’m not charging any $9.95 for this bad boy. If you want one of these, it’s going to cost you…
