My daughters and I were shopping together and a bit shocked that they needed to buy “Large” garments for their size 4 and 6 frames. The beauty of the shape of women is easily lost on labels, especially when those labels try to force us to fit to their ideal. Although it uses only simple rectangular shapes, the Misbegotten Waistcoat flatters all figure types, no matter if you were blessed with a bodacious booty or an ample bosom.
Using simple shapes and buttoned at the waist, Misbegotten magically slims.
