I’ve been DYING for a pair of magenta colored pants for a while now, so when I saw these pants on Eloquii’s website I jumped all over them. When I put them on, I was surprised by the snug fit around my hips and butt. As far as I could remember, I’ve always had a love/dislike (I refuse to say “hate”) relationship with my booty. I grew up knowing I had a large posterior but others began to notice the same once I hit middle school. From the 6th to 8th grades I was called “Getta the Butt” (the boy who started this proudly told me he didn’t want call me Jabba the Hut so he came up with Getta the Butt!). Things hit a fever pitch in 10th grade when the EU song “Da Butt” came out. Almost on a daily basis I was greeted by male classmates singing “Getta got a big ol’ butt…OH YEAH!” During those years I would pray to God to deflate the size of my derrière so the teasing (and unwanted stares) would stop. Unfortunately my prayers went unanswered and I started wearing oversized clothes to deflect attention away from my butt.
Fast forward to 40-year-old me being flooded by unpleasant memories while trying on these pants. For a millisecond I thought about returning them but I stopped. Returning the pants will not make my booty any smaller than it is. By returning them, I would be allowing negative self-doubt to rule me again. So I decided to keep the pants and show off my glorious booty!
Have a wonderful weekend!
