Have You Seen These Things Yet?

Maybe I'm so out of it these days that these things are old news, but I thought they were so cool! It's a t-shirt band that fits around your waist and hips to maintain skin coverage. Or as they call it - rear view exposure. You can find them at

In this day of ultra low rise pants and shorter shirts, I thought it was a fantastic idea for keeping modest. And protecting the world from that which they truly do not want to see. :) It's one of those things that also leaves me wishing I had made it up.

I wonder if I could make my own out of a tight t-shirt.

I give it 2 thumbs up! While I would never want to go back to the waist cinching pants of the 80's, I do believe that moderation is necessary. OR at least some common sense!! Stef and I were at Target the other morning and there was this really nicely dressed mother. (NOT the type you would expect.) She was pushing a stroller and checking out. She bent down to get the things from the stroller, as she was using it for her shopping cart, when she literally popped out of her pants! We were startled, and fully expected (at least I did) her to reach back and hike them back up. But she didn't. In fact she did it again!! We're talking SEVERAL INCHES of recognizable derriere!! When she stood erect, the shirt fell back over the spot, but I felt like my own mother (I Must be getting old!) and I wanted to help her out, but she seemed oblivious. I couldn't help staring, cause I was trying to figure out WHAT was holding them up? Maybe I should buy some of them and give them out to people, as a gift. I'm sure they'd thank me, right??? At least it was a great teachable moment with her regarding fashion,-current or otherwise. I am so glad none of the males of our family were there!
That's my epistle!
