As some of you may already know, I suffer from moderate-to-severe adult-onset inflammatory cystic acne. (Wow, that’s a mouthful!) But that’s what it is. It’s not just clogged pores, blackheads, and zits. Even the word “zits” sounds small and minor. And minor my condition is not.
As an average-sized woman with wide hips, muscular legs, and a big butt, I am perfectly aware that I have some fashion limitations:
Denim jeans with no stretch are a no-go.
Ankle boots tend to make my legs look short.
And body-con skirts aren’t doing me any favors— it’s true.
That’s OK though because fashion gives us a lot of options, like the high-waisted shorts trend. I count myself lucky that high-waisted shorts are back in style and they look like they’re here to stay.
