To PVC or Not to PVC that is the
question Horatio ?
Well it has been three years and today, I actually put on one of my PVC pair of trousers.
It came about all of a sudden and was totally uncontrived. I was cold, we live on a mountain, I needed to wear trousers, jeans create muffin tops and I wanted dignity and warmth that stockings would not provide. Suddenly, there they were right before me – why hadn’t I worn them before now? The black, PVC trousers! Now I don’t care what anyone else tells you, having a baby changes ones figure for good. The reason why these trousers were so appealing all of a sudden was exactly why they were slightly daggy when I used to have my figure; they had a stretchy panel!
Huzzah! I could look cool, Goth and be warm and comfortable all at the same time.
The phrase, “how the mighty have fallen” rattled around my head for a short while but hey, after three years of being a Mum and needing to wear trousers under my dresses due to crawling on the floor with my child (often in public), I thought I would cut myself some slack.
Yeah, it worked. So I say, manufacturers, why don’t you just make more PVC clothing with stretchy panels for us old Goths to keep up the dream?
