Thanks everyone! Glad you approve Ingy. :-)

femmy!

kimmie, I'm not WEARING a bra, that's why you can't see the straps :-)

Seriously, though, I did some BO decreases at the edges (if i had done more it wouldn't have been so buncy in the front), and then just made sure I wore a bra that has wide-set straps (you didn't really think I was that perky, did you?)

The trick to making your waist look smaller is to stand at a slight angle to the camera :-) I took about 20 pictures of myself hahaha.

I "created" one size bigger, Nina, but I probablly didn't need to. It is SUUUUUUUUUUUUUPER stretchy. I realized this about 4 inches into the body tube, and I made the waist smaller by using a smaller needle size there. I am seriously disproportionate... I think my waist is 11 or 12 inches smaller than my hips and chest.

Renna, thanks for the compliment!!

DISproportionate? Dearrie, those are perfect proportions, of which few can boast!

Hildie, it looks great and it looks great on you! You should be really proud! And, I don't think we would have noticed that you weren't wearing a bra either. :rofling:
