    Girls, low rider pants, and bellies. Why?

    I'm no expert but it seems like the low rider pants that the girls are wearing now have made a lot of them sprout bellies. And a lot of them are younger girls/women. I'm trying to figure out if it is the style of pants that makes the bellies stick out more or is it that there are just more belly laden girls nowdays.

    I think its the food everyone's eating. Of course that style of pants doesn't help, it accentuates any protrusion.

    Seems like an epidemic. I was in a bar last night for the first time in years and noticed a lot of this going on. I kept trying to figure out why these 19 year old girls have beer guts exposed. Certainly doesn't seem flattering.

    Maybe they don't realize how it really looks. And maybe because there is so much of it going on, it doesn't seem out of the norm.

    Ha Ha...MuffinTop syndrome
    Ive heard 'Sugar Cone' too....

    In the 60's, the huge bell bottom, lowcut style was
    the koolest fashion since the neru jacket, but that era of hippy chix
    had the common fashion sense to know that a MaMa Cass style, long
    flowery dress was to be used if there was an overabundance of flesh to clothe.
    The cascading blubberfall totally disrespects the cool hippies who pioneered this
    awesome look.

    i thought the fashion of fat chics with their fat hanging over the side of their jeans, exposed thong, and tramp stamp was falling out of fashion? it been around for at least 4-5 years (at least it has been in NYC/Euroland).

    I know what you mean broham. I see girls and women all the time with either small/large pregnant like bellies or beer gut bellies hanging out of their shirts and low jeans. I almost gag everytime. I really dont understand why they would allow themselves to look like that on purpose. Ild rather see it covered up or a flat or somewhat flat stomach. Its sort of like seeing the 300lb fat girl wearing a skin tight shirt that says SEXY on it. Not that their arent fat sexy girls, but come on.
    MegadetH is the best ever! Deal with it...or not? HHMmm. Did I spell that right? I might look it up. Rambling here...this might be a good time to end...lets see..good, good ill end it here. Now I gotta hit "Save Signature" or this wont work like I had planned. To many options. This screens to bright although i do like the pale grey background. Easy on the eyes, I suppose thats a good thing

    You know how it works...we follow Europe's fashion, about 2 or 3 years behind schedule. They follow our music, about 2 or 3 years behind schedule. It's been like that for a while.

    That being said, it's high time the muffin top went the way of big hair.

    i saw that look back home long before i saw it over here. it's too cheap of a look for euros to develope on their own.

    probably started in a trailer park, or a public housing project.

    it is pretty skanky and many times just plain humerous.

    It's really just a case of wearing the latest fashion or 'look' whether it's becoming or not. You older folks, think back.... did fat ugly legs ever stop someone from wearing a mini skirt?

    I'm thinking about... clydesdales in spandex right now

    Somebody called?

    Anyways, I remember what Sir Mix-a-lot (the guy who sang "Baby Got Back") said a bout a really large girl who came up to him and ask if she "got back?" To which he replied

    "Baby, you got back, front, AND the sides"

    those pants really are designed for super skinny girls with flat flat stomachs... most teenage girls don't have that kind of build.

    I don't have a pot belly at all, but i noticed that low-rise pants, which are actually pretty good for me because I'm high waisted, cause my lower abs to sort of protrude a bit and the pants kind of drop below the abs. So it makes it LOOK like I have a sloppy lower belly... if you really do have one, the belly will push the pants lower so your belly hangs out over the waist band. I'm constantly pulling the pants up. I don't wear a lot of bare midriff stuff, but it's not how it looks, it's kind of annoying. It's really the cut of the pants that causes the 'muffin top' effect.The more muffin you have, the more it'll hang out.

    As for lowrider pants, it's not much better with guys. I have seen more underwear and butt cracks than I ever wanted to see... i would love to see the end of this whole ugly trend, along with camouflage and tattoos.

    I have one of those small waist/large hips female figures, and I look forward to the day when stores once again begin to carry pants that sit at my natural waist height. I'll be the first to admit that I'm carrying extra weight, but I've never seen a woman with my body shape (even ideal weight) look good in those pants. We all end up with a "muffin top". That's what happens when you put something tight around wide hips and then expose your midriff. The first time I tried one of those on, I vowed never to actually spend money on something that made me look so unattractive. I feel bad for teenage girls who aren't yet ready to ignore the dominant fashion paradigm.

    So, I stick with the unfashionable but flattering pants I saved from the early '90's or manage to snag at Goodwill and wear skirts and dresses more.
