    The first years of my life I wear fashion like a boy, short haired, bra wearing and badly sitting fashion.
    My husband said to me why wearing bra, bikini, big shirts and high waisted clothes with your kind of body?

    I am asking him for what do you think what is for me the best to wear?
    My whole closet is turn on that day now years ago!

    My bikini does not fit because i have euro size 36/38 above and 38/40 and tiny breasts, he said then that is a big mistake to wear bra!
    T shirts, tank tops are for woman with big bra breasts.
    Spagetti top is for woman like you and yes it make from me a real woman!
    Also i like leggings and other second skin pants and suits!
    All my suits and torso comes from USA because they ask about the girth torso measurements.
    If we do not see the cameltoe than does it not good fit!

    Another problem is the cameltoe!
    I have a closed vagina so you can if you look at this a little bit but some woman has a big very big cameltoe and yes thats not nice to wear.

    I am wearing jeans since the 1970’s levi’s wranglers and there you see always the cameltoe but now is it only a problem with the cheaper leggings?
    I do get the message cheaper is the problem.

    My figure is good to wear leggings were it is made for, i wear a legging with a short top and short arma woman wear leather jacket, very stylish!

    Muslims do not like our fashion style, they said we must only wearing a big dress woman and men also, and not bra and not underwear.
