Sounds Like A Good Idea to Me?

I just read about Tummy Tuck Jeans. Hmmm, I was thinking about hunting down a pair to try on. They range from $89 - $120 dollars, which I would have no problem paying for jeans that look good. Any sort of bottom is hell to fit on my oddly shaped 6" tall frame and as cheap as I am I can sacrifice if it is an investment.

What I didn't like was the fact that every model on the website was a stick thin, no hip, NATURALLY flat stomach waif. That is crap! What the hell do they need tucked? These jeans have a built in girdle systems for Pete's Sake. The unnatural models don't even have enough body fat to keep them warm in the winter. Marketing like this and the hypocritical images body message pushed on American woman is exactly why I left the fashion industry. This is as dumb the people on E! calling Scarlett Johansen a full and curvy woman.

You're only 6 inches tall?

The proofreader in me caught the same mistake that Roonie caught. I could have sworn you were taller than 6 inches!
