I'm gonna start these weekly threads, for a "Woman Moment Question of the Week". Keeping this board alive, lol Wink

This week's question is, did you or do you ever unbutton your jeans or pants for comfort? At the dinner table, at the buffet, during your period, whenever? It's a subject that not a lot of women like to discuss (we always tend to do it discreetly under our dinner napkins, usually out of embarrasment), but we can all discuss it here among gal pals. I've done it in all of those three cases, and more, haha.

Looking forward to some great responses! Smile

I'm old (lol) and so I wear comfortable pants most of the time and don't often have that issue, but there have been times I've loosened a button or zipper. The last time I remember was at a restaurant in N.C. where everyone in my group ate like we were never going to eat again. I think there were a lot of loosened belts and buttons that time!

I usually only do it around family, too. When I was younger, my parents (especially mom) frowned upon it. Not so much now, but back then, she frowned upon it a lot. One instance back in my college days, I was in a semi-fancy restaurant with my family, and ate more than I should have. So, I undid my belt and unbuttoned my jeans. My mom noticed me and gave me "the look". That look of distaste lol. I had to do it, though, I felt like I was going to burst if I didn't! Embarassed

Sometimes I'll do it at home, during dinner, if I'm feeling unusually bloated, particularly if my dinner is large (doesn't make much difference, I live alone, so I could dine with my feet up on my dinner table for all I care. Not that I would or ever have.) When I'm out with friends, I try to keep it under wraps, but when it's a girls' night out with really close friends, I do it comfortably.

I try to avoid wearing belts, jeans, or anything with buttons or zippers when going out to eat (especially if I know I'll eat a lot). But sometimes, it's inevitable. One time, I went out with friends to Red Lobster. I wore my favorite skinny jeans, stylish belt, and a button up blouse. I had probably the biggest platter of seafood, along with some drinks. By the end of the appetizer, my belt was undone. By the time my entree was finished, my belt was off, jeans unbuttoned, and partially unzipped. Had to put my purse in front of me when walking out of the restaurant, I didn't want anyone to see my bloated belly and undone jeans!

Cool Threads to start!! Signing in & not getting kicked out would keep the board alive!! (oops...it's not Weds) lol

Why yes...I have loosed my pants & unbuttoned. Some foods seem to blow me up like a balloon! Only around family tho...lol.  If I am going out to a dinner or anywhere I will be eating ,I wear loose fitting dress or my elastic waisted dress pants with a long loose fitting top Laughing 

There were times when I had my monthly or just weight gain that I would have the waistband extenders to use.
