Thank you so much! I have small hips but a little belly that hangs over my hips, it was so hard to figure out if i was suppose to be using my hip measurement to include the roll or not (I have a ridiculous time figuring out skirt sizes) so many measuring how tos do not figure in anything other than a completely flat stomach .. I can’t thank you enough!

This video is fantastic. So much more relatable and realistic for me. Also, the information about when buying jeans. I love wearing jeans but have had such a hard time finding ones that fit and look good for the latest shape of my body. THANK YOU.

Thank you so much for this information! I've never heard of the term "low waist," but I realized it's the measurement I need to figure out if an item of clothing will truly fit me.
