Summer is always the worst time.
Finding something comfortable and stylish to wear when you’re getting old and fat (and hot) is an annual challenge. For about three decades the first sight of sun would send me running for shorts and a T-shirt, but no longer. I wouldn’t want to embarrass myself, let alone my children or anyone else.
But even covering up can be difficult. Every second year the crop tops are back in fashion, fine if you’re 15, not so much when you’re 50. And even a standard length top may look fine in the shop, but after a couple of washes it will fail the ‘gap’ test.
