Muffin Top
I was reading the papers earlier this week, and learnt a new term. Ok, so maybe it's not a very new term. Maybe some of you out there have heard of it, but it was new to me! :P - Muffin Top

Muffin top (or muffin top girl) is a generally pejorative, slang term used for a person, usually female, whose flabby midsection spills over the waistline of his or her pants in a manner that resembles the top of a muffin spilling over its casing. This generally occurs when an individual wears low-rise or hip-hugger pants and midriff-baring tops. From Wikipedia.

Ohohohohohoho!!! Nowadays when I see girls flashing their spare tyres around in super tight jeans, I'll exclaim "Muffin Top!" XD

Muffin tops are all the place. In the malls, in your office, everywhere. Honestly, there's nothing wrong with being chubby. In fact, chubby is healthy. But if you're chubby or have a tummy (tou lum) and are attempting to squeeze yourself in a pair of low rise jeans with the impression that it's sexy to bear some flesh, you're so goddamn wrong. It's not sexy, people. It's a horrific disaster.

Honestly, how sexy can spilling your tummy out of a pair of pants be? Look at the image! Is that sexy?!? It's anything BUT sexy. In fact, it might even make you look like some desperate pork chop trying to squeeze into something 2 sizes too small. Why make yourself so uncomfortable just to be in fashion? Not everyone can wear low-rise jeans. Go for mid-rise jeans, that's the reason why they were invented in the first place.

If you want to look fashionable, at least do it the right way. That tummy of yours ain't that appealing when it's spilling out from those tight pants. Be sensible when it comes to dressing. Spare your viewers the eye sore.
