Lower (Fl)ab Exposure
January 17, 2011 § Leave a comment
Is it just me or did shirts in the last 10 years get significantly longer? As I was watching a season one episode of the Gilmore Girls last night, I couldn’t get over the short waist shirts and long-waisted pants pervading the screen. Even though my weight has fluctuated very little since my sophomore year of high school, perhaps there’s a real reason why those old tops create some serious lower (fl)ab exposure?
Yes, in fact. In the late 90’s and throughout the 2000’s, low-rise jeans made a comeback from the 60’s trend. A good 3 inches shorter from crotch to naval, those pre-low-rise shirts just won’t make the cut. I suppose besides the outdatedness of many items, this accounts for my dismissal of many blouses, tees and tanks. It certainly accounts for this workout top circa 1997.
