"Muffin Top" and "Dunlap Syndrome"
What's the first jean hazard to watch out for? The dreaded "muffin top" or, as Oprah calls it, "dunlap" syndrome. "That's when your stomach done lap over your jeans," she jokes.
The "muffin top" is caused by a waistband that's too low and too tight. When your tummy spills over the sides of your jeans, you know you're a member of the muffin club.
But, there's good news for muffins everywhere, Stacy says. Waistlines are rising! The ultra-low rise fad is fading fast, and the new mid-rise styles will keep your belly from bulging.
