This is such a general question nonna. What's your style? Age? Body shape? Do you need special sizing(tall/petite/plus-size)? What price range? Materials? Are you looking for an ethical/sustainable brand? Are you talking about casual trousers or work appropriate ones?

No. 210334

ah im sorry, just… basic trousers, idk how to describe it, stuff you can wear daily but im not too fussy about styles. my problem is that i will buy trousers or jeans or whatever and a lot of the time theyre just not comfortable, so i guess it'd be nice to hear from anons who have bought trousers before that have turned out to be super versatile and comfy to wear. i buy most of my clothes second hand from ebay and second hand stores these days, and im a uk 12/5'9" if that helps (i get bloated to hell and back so i guess that's a contributing factor to my clothing problems)

Thank you anon. I wanted to buy a pregnancy test but have been too busy. In the meantime, I suddenly had blood in my underwear this morning, one day after. I thought I had my period as it looked just like it, so I was relieved. But now my pee is clear and so is my toilet paper when I wipe. I'm extremely confused and don't know what this means.

Holy shit this thread. I have a theory about male ageing especially in pretty boys: they got a lot of attention in their youth, and as they got older the attention dried up, and they got depressed and let themselves go big time, obsessing over the glory days while actually being the cause of their own downfall. Men do suffer from ageism as women do, but I think cope with the loss of attention far worse (women are usually delighted to be finally left alone) since men thrive on approval and admiration. Plus drink and drugs obvs, but the first thing is the major cause.

The style lines are similar, but if you wanted to replicate >>209346 exactly then you'd probably need to widen the shoulder seam to create that cute slouchy, relaxed fit in your inspiration image. Also, the pattern you chose has a yoke and the inspiration pic doesn't but it seems like a nonissue to me

I need a jacket/coat for autumn and winter and I just can't find anything that matches my expectations, so I guess, I have to make one myself. I'm a dressmaker, so sewing that thing shouldn't be the problem, constructing the pattern is a another thing (trainee in that subject right now, kek). I thought about something like a military parka with detachable, fluffy wool or cotton lining, as I'm not freezing very often and most jackets are way too warm for my needs. So I could remove the lining when the temperatures are above 5°C and insert it below that.
Has anyone of you some instructions on how to make the pattern for something like this or maybe a pattern where you can see how it works with an detachable lining. Guess if I could see the pieces needed I could come up with something for myself.

No. 210133

I've never heard of detachable lining before, but it's a really clever idea! My initial thought is using snaps?

No. 210298

there are few jackets that have something like that and I just like the idea. Snaps is a good idea or maybe normal buttons.
I wonder how it works construction wise, my idea is, that I will make the lining fitted and the jacket 2 cm larger, but I'm not sure if that's enough and the right way. Pattern construction is just a very different thing compared to using a pre made pattern.

i dont like looking at myself in the mirror. especially without makeup. i only take selfies with an asian selfie apps to change my face shape along with makeup. thats the only way i feel pretty. im deeply insecure and i dont think ill ever be able to have a healthy romantic relationship because of it. i cant stand the thought of my s/o finding another girl more attractive than me. and ill always be worried if he thinks im ugly. ill probably die a virgin too because i hate how my body looks i dont want anyone to see it. i dont want to get better because i feel like i dont deserve to. id only feel better if i was actually pretty. i wish i could just been born pretty. its just not fair

No. 209984

I don't have BDD but I do have some serious insecurities and similar experiences to anons in this thread. I was a happy kid looks wise, since I grew up in the nineties before selfies and too much photoshop (I really feel for young girls growing up in today's selfie age) my only issue was that my legs were already hairy by the age of 10. I didn't think of how I looked otherwise, I was busy being a kid. by the time I started puberty things changed though, I developed severe acne. I had the worst acne in my year at school and it completely destroyed my self confidence. I also got hairier, so much hairier. I always say puberty didn't do shit for me other than give me hair and acne. I just became the ugly girl. I also hated the amount of moles on my skin and never showed by body. I hated being in my own skin, always wore long sleeves and never shorts even when it was really warm.

I basically lived this way until I was 17 and grew into my looks a little more, acne calmed down too but never cleared, even through my 20s. I've had acne for over half my life and in my early thirties now, due to a hormone issue I still have acne. it causes me such stress. every morning I dread looking in the mirror and seeing what new monstrosity may have appeared on my face. my hormone problem also causes hair growth on my face, I pluck my chin everyday and obsessively so. my chin is usually scabbed up and red raw from the skin getting picked during plucking and ingrown hairs. my sideburns grow in very dark and long too, I shave those. the fact that I have to shave my face daily kills me inside. I feel so unfeminine and disgusting especially with acne too and now, being in my early thirties, the signs of ageing setting in a little.

I'm unwell in other ways too so my overall appearanc is…. bad, most of the time. I look ill because I am ill. I find it hard to look at people sometimes for fear they will see stubble on my face or just look at my fine lines, dark undereyes and acne. I also get acne breakouts on my back which is stressful. all the stress only makes my acne worse and the depression too has meant I've lost most of my appetite and barely eat. I'm underweight, like a bag of bones and look so so unwell. I feel so unattractive and ugly. seeing pretty girls on television with their hairless faces, nice skin and glowing alive looking eyes makes me sad. I want to be pretty and to look bright and cheerful and attractive but I'm just… not.

I hope both of you never let your sense of self be altered by the guys your with. I find tall girls to be beautiful. Having a presence in an elegant and powerful way, less likely to be messed with. I’m pretty average (5’8) and still cross by fingers that by the time in 19 I’ll be a little taller.

Anyway. Dogs can smell fear, insecurity. So can males. I know a girl with a strong, biggish nose who walks like she matters, puts herself first, dresses up, and acts like she’s worthy, in a kind way. If she looked at the ground and hid herself, she would be perceived as uglier- but because she believes she’s beautiful, other people believe it. If guys sense you’re insecure about something they will use it against you. Please don’t let that happen. Plus, the ‘tall vampire lady’ sperging of 2020 should tell you enough. I would seriously jump for joy if I woke up tall kek.

This might be a sperg-tier question, but it genuinely really confuses me..
When girls wear cropped shirts and have flat stomachs with super toned muscles underneath, is it because they're sucking in?

No. 210041

If you see toned muscles irl then they work out to get them that way. Sucking in, warming up and posing helps to emphasize your muscle but it won't work if you're flabby. You can't trust any abs you see on the internet tho kek.

my head hair is really fine too (though still dark brown)! but my body hair is darker. I have body issues too, I'm underweight and my body hair coupled with that really has a negative effect on my sense of self confidence. I can gain weight but I may never be able to control the hair so I am trying to learn to embrace it even if sometimes it makes me just want to cry

as for the default face thing, I totally agree. I wear a little bit of concealer but could never go back to full foundation. living a life where you don't feel right or happy or yourself without makeup isn't fun

BII has only been found in women who received textured implants. Women with smooth implants are not thought to be at risk. I would also recommend any nonas looking into implants to avoid the ones filled with silicone, including "gummy bear" implants, because if they rupture the silicone gel goes everywhere and must be removed from your insides. Smooth saline implants are the safest on the market - smooth implants haven't been found in women with BII and saline is safely absorbed into the body if they should rupture - though obviously accepting your body without implants is the lowest risk out of all your options.

I have a really odd parsley situation. I bought a pot of continental parsley from my local nursery and it was blooming very well aside from a few days of wilting when I didn't water in time. Otherwise it tasted great and I used a lot of it.
However the new parsley that is growing, tastes like absolute ass! It has this awful aftertaste of wet socks and I simply don't know what to do. The colour has not changed and it seems to be slowly growing, but I don't know what to do about the awful taste. Any ideas?

No. 209936

Since you noted you didn't water it in time, that's likely the issue. Parlsey can get stressed if the soil is allowed to dry out which will turn it bitter. I would just let the current stalks grow a bit then trim them back and see if the new growth is improved with regular watering!

I actually post about it before, but it keeps coming in bouts, so what the hell.
This is very dumb, but sometimes I still daydream about being in Tokyo/Japan for my research project and being scouted by someone on the street (like a real agent, not gaijin hunters) or catching the eye of an obnoxious japanese TV show and becoming a model/tarento. This is obviously never going to happen because I am literally the anti-japanese beauty standard lol


>broader frame
>not super skinny
>nearing my 30s
>despite having a gaijin nose, I have black hair and brown almond eyes so no "anglo gaijin novelty"
>kinda ugly anyway

The only way this would ever be possible is if I had a "Gap moe" appeal, having this image that is very "gangster" but actually being cute/polite/dressing in lolita maybe. Kinda like Lady Beard lol But not only is that a very, very small chance, but it's like… I'd probably have to be signed to an agency before going to Japan, anyway.

It's so stupid that I still have teenage tier daydreams like that, but I can't help it. Probably they'll disappear when I get to Japan again, because I'd be too busy to think about being a moderu tarento gaijin san kek

I have a question regarding IUDs. I've been on the pill since early 2017 and I get pretty bad side effects. My breasts swell up (they become REALLY painful) and I get extremely nauseous. I haven't been off the pill since 2017 and the symptoms haven't disappeared. I'm honestly sick of it and decided to get an IUD. Have any of you had experiences with IUDs? I am not sure whether to get the hormonal or non-hormonal one. I absolutely hate and almost can't stand the side effects of hormonal birth control, but I get very painful periods and I heard that the copper IUD makes them 10x worse. ;-;

anons, I want to stop taking the (sort of) bc I am on. Like right now. I swear I am on the verge of killing myself, the depression is so bad, and idk if it's the pill but something has to change.

I moved countries for school (until june) so dealing with my dr is not simple.

I'm on metrissa (dienogest), it's a progesterone-only pill that isn't technically bc but only because the testing isn't done on it or something. It basically same as the minipill. Have been on it for about 5 months I think.

Can I just stop? What will happen? Will I bleed immediately?

No. 209692

It is safe to just stop! Not sure about bleeding because I'm >>209342 so I was bleeding all the time and may have been on my period, but my bleeding and other shitty side effects stopped maybe two days after. I got really horny for a few days starting the day after I stopped, and then it mellowed out and my brain and body finally felt normal again. YMMV and may take a little longer to adjust so give it time, I'm not sure if bc is causing your depression but it did give me extreme mood swings and I think stopping would do nothing but good things for you! I can relate to you anon, I wanted to kill myself on the combined pill because it scrambled my brain so hard. It was really scary and I thought I had serious brain damage. I stopped for a couple years and then I asked my doctor about my bc options and she told me the mini pill would be safe (bullshit). I remember crying a lot on the mini pill but I kept reminding myself I was on birth control when I felt depressed. I think there's some people who just can't take any hormonal bc.

No. 209696

Thanks, I think I'll give it a try. I have a medical reason for being on it but I can't handle this feeling and it's badly interfering with the work I'm here to do. I will take a break and see how I feel.

I got Mirena inserted two weeks ago. I've never had more than a couple pimples before and now I've got acne all over my chin and jaw and new pimples just keep coming.

My doctor kept saying the effects of Mirena were very localised and barely any people had side effects but after I noticed I had acne and looked things up, it seems like it's a relatively common side effect. When I told her I had acne, she acted surprised and said it was unlikely. I wish she had mentioned it to me. I feel like I can't fully trust her advice now.

Apart from the acne nothing else has been bad so far. I've adjusted my skincare routine for now and my skin is slowly improving, but when I'm stressed or sad I know I will slip up with my skincare.

I would rather have cramps and periods than lowkey daily acne and the constant fear of a really bad breakout. I guess it's vain but having everyday shitty skin is making me feel a lot worse than my period lows. I could ask a dermatologist about spironolactone but I'd rather take the Mirena out than start a new med.

Does the acne go away? How long should I wait for my body to adjust before seriously considering removing the Mirena?

No. 209955

I'm in the hell of hormonal bc for the first time too, anon, and I feel you. I think you need to give it a bit longer to see if things clear up or not. 2 weeks isn't really long enough to know. Can you tough it out for 2 months, maybe?

fwiw I've heard that Mirena usually does have fewer skin effects than progesterone-only pills. I'm not supposed to take any estrogen (and the possibility of weight gain on estrogen also terrifies me), so I'm on a pill without estrogen.

I can say that I was on a different progesterone pill a few months ago and the acne seemed to get better after the first month. I had to change pills for the same reasons as >>209342 - was bleeding all the time and I couldn't deal with it. The pill I am on doesn't make me bleed all the time but I am having other side effects I hate.
