Girls, we have a growing problem out there today. A problem that can be easily solved.

Pants that are shorter waisted and shirts that tend to ride up. Whats the answer?

If you get your pants with a higher waist we risk going into the Mom Jeans zone. I don't know about you, but I am not going there.

Shirts they seem to be the right length until you wash them and they accidently get put in the dryer.

Kids that are constantly tugging at your shirt and hanging on your pants leg.

The answer my friends is an under shirt.

A longer under shirt can help an outfit out. You can either wear it tucked or untucked either way it may save you the embarrassment of this...........................

Please don't let this happen to you.

Now go check out all the other fabulous Frump Fighters over at Fussy's place.

I cannot believe that you put the picture of my hind end up on your blog.....LOL....Just kidding!!!

Please. All girls showing their bum need to go buy one of these shirts.

great idea! Those popular low-rider jeans have turned our society inside out -literally. Too much information showing out there from cracks to muffins.

Have a great weekend!

I JUST bought two tanks about 6 weeks ago. I LOVE them in place of a bra under "thicker" clothing as well. Now that we are coming into "not so thick" clothing season, this is a great way to use those tanks! Thanks for showing me how to extend their use!

Great post. I vote we make it mandatory reading! We have a tenant who is in her 60s - Last time I saw her she was wearing low cut jeans and a short top. She was not accidentally revealing her, uh hum, information. I wish I could hit the delete key on that picture in my brain.

awesome idea! esp now since i can't fit into any of my pregnancy clothes, an undershirt is totally the answer to all my now too short tops!

thanks! off to target i go! :)

happy friday!

Yes! I do this. I also think the layering look helps slim the old midsection. Not that I need this of course, nope not at all, not me. (Written very sarcastically.)

Awesome AWESOME AWESOME post! I can't even guess how many times undershirts have been my saving grace. And now you're helping to save others!

I swear this post needs to be printed out and put in plain view for every girl in college & high school!

Happy Frump Fighting - again great post! Much love & God Bless

ValleyGirl said...

EEEEEEEEeeewwwwwwww!! I HATE seeing that!! I can't BELIEVE how many people seem to think that's perfectly acceptable ~ and many of them have WAY too much underwear showing in that scenario as well. (although at least we can tell they're actually wearing underwear....)

Ugh. Buy a long undershirt. JUST.SAY.NO.TO.CRACK!!

I wonder if I can sneakily give this post to a friend of mine who is a habitual offender. :)

Under shirts are a god send. Around here they are a MUST during winter but it seems as soon as 'spring' hits everyone ditches them in favor of low riders, and high navels ;)

(ps. i updated my FtF)

Rhea said...

Good idea with under shirt. I'm tired of seeing everyone's underwear and/or cracks as well. Tacky, tacky.

The Southern Mom said...

Crack Attack! It might have been worse - we could have seen her thong showing (or maybe that would have been better - she could be going commando!) I know I'm dating myself, but we wore 'hip-huggers' in the 70's and bodysuits (shirts that were like onesies!)...they stayed tucked in!! Bwahaha..I haven't thought of that in years! And...we just got a catalog from Speigle and there was one in it! Also in Newport News catalog! Oh, well...what goes around, comes around!

What a warm and fuzzy "just got home from camp" feeling I got from the hind end of this chick.


Missed you Valarie Darlin' - needed my daily fix of frump fighting Valarie - ness.

Busy again tomorrow but things are just BOUND to slow down eventually.

Until tomorrow evening......



Heather said...

Oh, that picture was scary!

Great tip! I just started wearing camisoles under my shirts, but for a different reason (cuz I'm a breastfeeding momma).

I think that's a picture of my brother's ex girlfriend.... could it be? yikes! LOL!

I found your blog by way of The Pioneer Woman and thought I would comment on this post.
