Special Announcement: Winners will be announced on next week's blog as women are able to enter all week! Don't forget how BEAUTIFUL God thinks you are!
As you know from last week's blog, I recommended 4 different style jeans based on body types. Yesterday, a rep from Riders by Lee contacted me and offered to give me 3 outfits (jeans and top) to give away to 3 of my readers! Thank you, Riders by Lee!
I promised to answer some of your questions this week, so I'm going to do that first and then we'll get into how you can win an outfit for yourself from Riders by Lee!
Q: Someone asked me how to know the difference between the H and X body types. She said she has a little tummy left over from baby days and wondered which body type she might be. She is 50, size 6 and 118 lbs.
A: Since you didn't post your name I will call you "Pretty Woman".
Dear Pretty Woman, you sound like you have a really good shape with not too many body challenges, nothing that a tummy shaper won't take care of!
Here is a description of the 4 body types:
H: Shoulders and hips are evenly balanced, not much in the rear department, and gains most of her weight in her tummy.
O: Gains weight in upper midriff and bust area. Usually flatter rear, but not always. This is typically a more full figured gal. Nice legs.
A: Small waist. Gains weight in hips, thighs and booty. Narrow shoulders, usually.
X: Balanced body. Similar to H description, except has narrow waist and regular size booty. If she gains weight, typically gains evenly all over or doesn't gain much at all, anywhere.
Next question came from Shannon. She just about cracked me up when after asking her question she decided she was a hybrid H/O body type. Still laughing about that. Shannon had several questions so I'm going to answer a couple of them. Shannon, I hope your first question was answered by Pretty Woman's question. I agree with you..I'd go with the Hybrid version! Buy clothes for the O for your best bet.
You asked about wearing gray since you are warm. Yes, you can wear gray, just don't be tempted to wear it with black. Pair it with coral or turquoise.
And Pink? No...still NO. Tell your daughter I'm the color boss.
And to Rachel B. I think Riders by Lee contacted me because of your question! You have this idea that this brand of jeans are mom jeans..and you don't want to look like you're wearing mom jeans. I'm with ya, sister! The new Riders by Lee are hip and happening and I'm so excited to be able to offer 3 of my readers gift certificates to choose a pair of Riders by Lee and a top of your choice at your local retailer. The only thing I ask of you is if you win, will you send me a picture of yourself in your new outfit and a description of what you think about your new jeans.
I wanted to let you know a little bit about the jeans and then I'll tell you how to win.
