Is it "ok" to show some belly even if you are skinny?

I don't want to see your belly no matter how skinny or fat you are. I know it's to show off for the guys but really is it really the "in" thing ?

  • I think if your shirt rides up and you're unintentionally showing a little bit of belly, that's just fine. It's not really your fault.

    But if you constantly dress like Britney Spears did in 1999...well now you just look easy.

  • I think showing your belly is trashy

  • I'd have to agree. It's kind of trashy. Mid -driff (sp?) spells 13 year old to me.

  • What I hate are short tops and low riding pants. I don't want to see your crack - I don't care how skinny you are. My daughter has embarrassed woman/girls before by letting then know she can see their butt.

  • I think belly is kinda 90's in my opinion.

  • Too Shania Twain. I think longer length tops are in right now anyway.

  • Bare bellies went out when waistlines dropped.

  • I agree, it's VERY 90's...and it wasn't cool even then! I'm so glad the long and lean shirt look is in, and I'm a pretty thin girl!

  • I think now a days the style is longer tank tops and stuff, but that doesn't mean everyone has to wear the same style just because it's "in" and what makes a girl trashy is that she sleeps around. I wear tank tops that show my stomach sometimes. I weigh around 110 lbs. I worked hard to get my pre baby body back and my husband thinks it's sexy when I dress like that. He's proud of me and my body and anyone who knows me knows I'm not trash. I know some girls don't like it because their belly isn't so in shape.. well stop being jealous and get it in shape. I shouldn't have to hide my good qualities to make others feel better about themselves and their lack of discipline to get in shape. Sorry if it sounds harsh, but I can't stand haters on moms who go the extra mile to look great.
