    No pain what so ever.....
    Sometimes my muscles ache from working out, but that is different.
    I do not tolerate girddles or painful heels.

    Embrace those who love you and whom you love, and rid yourself of those who will only bring you down!

    Sometimes I can bear to wear painful heels all night but if I'm gonna be drinking in a bar I might as well wear comf. heels because I'll just try and take them off

    If we're talking clothing- barely any. I can find stuff that looks nice and feels nice.

    Body? I will suffer through the soreness to get what I want.

    I'm a partially reformed sometimes sufferer. After tolerating less than comfy heels I just decided that I can't go over 3 inches and now I just don't. That plus those gel inserts have really made my life easier. I do all sorts of contortions with my jeans before I buy them to ensure I can be comfortable in them. On the other hand, I am constantly sucking my stomach in. I justify it as ab exercise but really, it would be more comfortable to just exhale most of the time. But I don't. Yeah, I'm working on that with diet and exercise.

    Sometimes. Let's be honest, I love me some hawt shoes that hurt like hell. My red stilettos left a huge open blister on my foot after dancing for hours, but they made the outfit. It was worth the pain.

    I love me some sexy heels but that's about it. Definitely no girdles!

    Unwilling. I believe there are plenty of ways to look and feel attractive without any sort of pain. I am all about being comfortable. I don't wear high heels, because to me, they are brutal on my feet. I feel as though being uncomfortable in my clothes shows all over my face, and there's nothing beautiful about that.

    I do have some piercings and two tattoos, but after healing, they are totally comfortable. Plus, they weren't done for their level of attractiveness. The tattoos are both very meaningful to me, and I honestly think the piercings were less painful than wearing a pair of heels all night.

    Also, I am willing to workout until it hurts, but that's more for health reasons than appearance.
