I recently ran across an article on Facebook written by a very wise person. I have to admit that I didn’t read the article, but I was instantly drawn to the topic. So, I decided to use this topic for my own article. Here it is. Ten reasons why high waist shorts are a bad choice

They look like mom jeans and daisy dukes got it on.

They make any butt look like a pancake butt. Flat.

They make any butt look like it goes half way up your back. Long.

‘80s music is classic but not ‘80s fashion. What’s next mullets, fanny packs and hammer pants?

It’s hard to hide the cellulite (which we all have) when your legs from your butt cheek crease to your ankles are glaring at the world.

It just pushes your muffin top up higher so you look like you have two sets of breasts.

No one can see your thong when you bend over.

Everyone can see your butt cheeks when you bend over.

There is no way your belly button ring is not going to get caught in that mile of snaps.

No one even notices your new banana clip because they’re too distracted trying to figure out where your butt ends and your back begins.

Here’s my advice: save your bad choices for when you’re picking your boyfriends. Come on ladies. We have to draw the line somewhere. And I’m drawing that line just below the belly button. No time is it ever okay for the top of your shorts to touch the bottom of your bra. Well, at least not until you’re 90 and gravity has taken over and the girls are hanging three inches below your belly button. Then it’s tolerable.
