Little Black Dress

Here’s to the life of the little black dress
Let’s take a moment to pray
For the sheath served well when, I confess,
I weighed so much less than today.
Its hemline fell just above my knees
In the back was a flirty slit
The drape was divine, an elegant ease
But now it just doesn’t fit.
The zipper won’t budge above my bum
It shows my muffin top
The chest’s so tight that I feel numb
The seams are ready to pop.
So now I sadly lay to rest
My dress for its last gig
In a bigger black dress I must invest
For I’ve grown a bit zaftig!

Being born in Mexico and growing up with my 'eye' attuned to the curvacious 'latinas', I love the picture prompt and the comments made by Brian and Fireblossom.

Stereotypically, the latin women are of this wonderful stature.

I just loved this. Very original and yet so many women are going to appreciate it...I for one! Keep 'em coming!
