And in Tennessee it comes a lot faster!
I’m getting very excited for flip-flops, strappy dresses, sunblock, braided hair, and a trip to Tybee Island!!!
Two of my favorite things about this time of year: I get to make more dresses for my little Zo to wear, and I get to jog more.
It was just last June that I started my fitness adventure. (There is a small explanation on the Dream page of my website.)
I am in better shape now than I have ever been and the thought of more improvement excites me. I’m still a pear shape. The more I work out the more pear-shaped I get! My husband claims that it’s my hip bones that are large. I think he’s right. Plus, working out makes some parts smaller and other parts bigger, if you know what I mean.
Anyway, my point is that I’m excited. I’m so excited that I’ve already started thinking about all of the summer clothes I can wear. I’ve started thinking about all of the summer clothes that you can wear, too!
This week, I’m going to start working on posts for dressing for summer for different body types.
In the meantime you can check out my other summer wear posts here:
Have a great week!
I definitely am. It’s going to be a great summer and I have a goal to be in shape by April. I got even more excited for swimsuit season when I saw this!

Not that it applies to me, because I’m quite small in the bust, BUT this swimsuit would be great for column shaped women. See how the pink on the bottom pulls all of your attention away from the gray on top? The more I look at it the more I think it would be good for Apple shaped women too, because it breaks up the torso. A boy shape or hourglass shape in this swimsuit would look like a pear. A pear shape would just be accentuated. I’m a pear, but I might buy it anyway just because I love it – and my husband is a nerd. He’d love it, too!
I haven’t written one of these in a while, but I came across this dress and I just had to share!

This is a great summer dress for a pear shape! It pulls in at the smallest part of the torso. Even with the flared skirt, a larger bottom will be perfectly balance by the fun and vibrant ruffles over the bust.
If you live in the Middle Tennessee area then you can find this dress at Trendy Pieces in downtown Murfreesboro. If you don’t live nearby you can get it online at JudithMarch.com.
I like Lindsay Lohan. I have no problems with her. She’s a mess and the world watches in wonder; hoping she’ll recover. She’s fabulous. She’s got that face. But she is no Marilyn Monroe.
Hugh Hefner is a business minded man. He knew what he was doing. He knows what people want and he gives it to them to make money. He gets a free pass because I’m a fan.
Here’s my big problem with Lindsay’s Marilyn-esque layout in Playboy:
(And it has absolutely nothing to do with Playboy.)
Lindsay is a COLUMN SHAPE. Marilyn is a PEAR SHAPE. Excuse me, but Lindsay didn’t have the assets to pull off that layout. Did you see how far she had to stick out her rear? Marilyn had a gorgeous butt!
I know that the issue was published a while ago – I liked it – but I didn’t actually start thinking about it until today, because I’m doing a new collection of paintings based on Marilyn’s body.
So, that’s my two cents on that. I wish I could apologize to Marilyn.
So, I’m a little late to the party. But that’s par for the course with me. I can be kind of dense and sometimes I get so wrapped up in something that I can’t pull myself out to see new things that are going on. And these things are a pretty big deal.
Control Freak Apple
Wacoal has released a new line of Shapewear Panties for Apple shaped and Pear shaped women. “ControlFreak aims to fill a gap in the market with a focus on women’s unique figures and varying body types. The new collection provides more specialized and specific solutions with women’s body types in mind – Apples or Pears. Both styles aim to solve curvy fit and comfort challenges, while offering smoothing, control and support.”*
ControlFreak Pear Brief
It’s hard for me to believe that it’s taken this long after decades of feminist activity and protesting stick-thin-models. However, I won’t complain too much. I’m excited that they’re doing it at all.
The Apple Brief is supposed to smooth the tummy and lift the rear. The Pear Brief smooths, not only the tummy, but also the hips. It also allows for more junk in your trunk. Both panties have relaxed leg openings for comfort. You’ve gotta watch the video.
I feel like it’s my duty to go buy a
pear pair and test them out. If they work I’ll let you know. They’re being sold at all luxury retailers and department stores nationwide.
