Don’t Stress the Stress Lines

After a long winter and rainy spring, how many of us are trying on our dresses with hesitation?

Will it fit? Won’t it fit?

Will the bodice hook?

Will a button fly off?

This time of year, how many of us stress over those horizontal wrinkles that show up around the midriff of our bodices? How many of us stress over those stress lines? I have, year after year. Frankly, it is inevitable through the years as our bodies just change, hibernating winter or not.

Deep breath. I say “Don’t stress the stress lines.” Why? Take a look at some of these original images:

Waist 2 Waist 1 waist

A few more of various ages: Link 1 Link 2 Link 3

Now, this isn’t a set of stress lines, but I am curious as to why she chose this particular look. I don’t know that it was a fashion choice. I also don’t promote recreating it. LINK
