Ok, I will never look like this without a radical starvation diet, giant platform shoes, or better, a total body transplant. So why struggle to play a game I can never win? Instead, I decided to think outside the square and go for quite a different aesthetic. Pinterest is really invaluable here. It allows you to be inspired by the best available from all over the world, not just by what you can see in your local shopping centre, or what your friends are wearing, or, heaven forbid, what you see in the women’s mags. It also shows you that you are not alone. There are plenty of talented designers out there who are also bored with the classic shape. And not because they are experiencing a dire shortage of thin, leggy models. Once you have recalibrated your taste buds away from the conventional, you will see that there is a smorgasbord of alternatives to choose from.

And that is just the beginning, there are many more interesting options on my Pinterest board.

Once you let go of the idea that you need to conform to the classic pants shape, which does us pears no favours, you are on your way to feeling much better about yourself and your body shape.
