SH: Let me see. Yeah, it pulls a bit across your tummy and your butt.
Me: Man. If it had a decent seam allowance, I could let it out a bit.
SH: Can't you wear one of those things?
Me: What thing?
SH: You know. [Runs his hands down along his side from his waist to his thighs.] Those things.
SH: That sort of mashes all of it in.
Me: Like a girdle?
