There is a good chance that I am going to see an old boyfriend in a few weeks.  By old boyfriend I mean the only dude who could ever threaten my marriage.  By old boyfriend I mean a person around whom the rest of the world falls away when I see him.  So, you know, NBD.
I'm about 40 pounds heavier than the last time I saw him. He's seen pictures, but still. What can I wear that will make me not cringe?  I have giant boobs and a giant butt, pretty small waist relatively speaking.  Short legs that do not wish to be displayed.  Usually I favor dresses, V-necks, elbow-length sleeves, knee-length skirts.  No volume on the top half, very tight sleeves, etc.

What would you do in this situation? Let our reader know in the comments below!
