Blue shorts, high waist, belly roll.

Go SPANX/shaper free (Check!)


Shorts H&M Garden collection in size EU 44 (thight), Top Indiska size L.

Really loving the color of these shorts and the high waist, but can't really decide if they look flattering on, and don't feel a 100% comfortable yet. Got to sort of break em' in. But I love clothes that are high waist, high waist skirts, jeans, stockings, leggings and shorts. They usually fit comfortable around your hip and tummy area then, sort of sucking it in and not making your hips/tummy create an unflattering roll over the edge of the piece of clothing you're wearing, makes it so hart to wear that favorite body hugging top for example.
Also worse thing ever is to have to pull up your bottoms cause they are low waist. Grr! I want my bottoms to be just bellow the bellybutton. (*^_^*) right?

Anyways,I never wear SPANX and such,altho I am thinking of buying one, for some reason now when I'm in US I have all of a sudden gotten selfconsious about my rolls. What is that about?! I Never cared before...maybe its all the diet adds on TV and calorie counts on every food box you buy. I don't know...all I know is that it gotta stop :)

I bought two pairs of spanx like shorts. i saw an ad on tv for them and ordered them.
big mistake.

they are high waisted which i thought would be great but they kept rolling down, causing an even bigger roll at the top of my pants than if i didnt wear them.
when i first wore them i actually loved them, but they dont start rolling down until youre out of the house and especially when youre in the hot weather.

i dont know how much spanx are, but if youre interested, i say try out something cheaper.

i personally dont think you need it, but i also understand the curiosity in them.

gorgeous colours!

There are some people who are conscious about showing rolls or whatever. And there are these girls who feel that it's a total injustice to being fat by squishing them in.

Seriously though, do what you feel you're comfortable with. Doesn't mean if you wear Spanx you're ashamed or self-conscious. It's like wearing concealer. Go ahead if you want to!

you're gorgeous the way you are Jen, I wear tummy control slacks and stuff because I hate lines or bumps sticking out from under my dress or skirt but they're not comfy during summers. I don't think you need them personally :)
Loveeee the shorts! too bad i cant figure out how to buy things from h&m ): they dont have a US online shop that i can find. hah.
i have spanx! and i loveee them, i just wear them under tight dresses. the only problem is that they dont stay up for me, they're supposed to stay by themselves and stick right below the bra line, and mine just falls down so i always struggle trying to get it to stay put with something.

Up to you gal, but i dont think you need one :) seriously and don't listen to stupid american ads, it's all brainwash. . . .j/k
I LOVE the shorts - man I am so jealous of your legs!!! :) the length of the shorts is perfect and I adore the color. Please don't be self-conscious you are gorgeous and are a REAL size girl! :) I love that higher waisted bottoms sort of "hold in". LOL.. I can't stand a low rise!

cute outfit!
That outfit is so cute girl! I really like the shorts on you. And don't waste your money on Spanx! I paid a lot (they are more expensive in europe than usa so if you REALLY want them, get them while you're in the states!) for a pair and they are so uncomfortable. They roll down every couple of minutes and you can see the bunch of rolled fabric through your clothes. Then I went up a size to be extra sure I wasn't wearing the wrong size, but exact same problem. And it's so annoying when you are in public and you feel them rolling down, then you try to yank them back up while everyone stares at you! xo

Don't even fall into that stuff mama!! That's what is sooooo F'ed up about this country, the idea of "pretty" or "cute" is super thin.. smh it's not true, as long as your happy with your body and feel comfortable, that's all that matters, you always look great, and I love the fact that you DONT wear spanx, you don't need them! Don't let anyone or anything change the way your feel about yourself my love you are simply gorgeous with such great fashion sense! I love this outfit on you! <3

Great outfit, I love those shorts and the colours of both pieces are lovely. Just to echo what most other people have said, don't buy Spanx! I bought a different brand of shapewear, and they are sooooo uncomfortable, and I found they didn't even make a difference. They rolled down right around my back rolls making them even more obvious.

Does Sweden not have the nutrition info / calories on food products?

i HEART you for always being so fearless in your fashion choices and rocking the mini lengths and shorts like nobody's business - don't give into the spanx! you look great in these shorts.
i sometimes keep wanting to wear spanx, especially when i'm wearing anything bodycon but i never can bring myself to - they're seriously uncomfortable.
