The Great Camo Coverup

Women’s magazines are forever publishing articles about how to properly camouflage our figures.  The idea is that there is some magic combination of shirts, pants, skirts and dresses that will make it appear that you have a great figure underneath your garments when in fact you despise what you see in the mirror when you’re standing there naked.

There are so many articles and books devoted to this subject, it’s hard to believe. I wonder how well camouflage actually hides those awful figure flaws?  Let’s take a look.

After careful examination, I don’t think camouflage works to hide those flaws….but perhaps I misunderstood.   Maybe that’s not the kind of camouflage the articles are referring to.  Maybe THIS is the kind of camouflage they meant!

I do understand how this could help hide your figure although I see a problem wearing it out.  What if you had to go to the mall or something?  All that hang-y stuff might get caught in the escalator.  You could end up  tangled in the machinery at the bottom.  The EMT’s would have to cut that thing off you and you’d wind up naked to the world….and that would definitely reveal your figure flaws!

How about forget the camouflage and just take steps to get your body into some sort of reasonable physical condition so you don’t have to worry about hiding all the time?  Fretting about what to wear to cover up what you don’t want seen is frustrating , depressing…and a losing battle.  The truth is that despite what the books and articles say you can’t truly hide much. Your body always tells the eye an honest story about nutrition, caloric intake and physical conditioning.  My advice is to cover up if it helps you feel better while you’re actually DOING something about it.  You’re not going to feel happy until you’re comfortable with what you see in the mirror.  Those books and articles should advise a little walk around the track and a sound eating plan to go along with the camouflage!

Honey! Tell the truth….Does this camo make me look fat?
