How do you meet career demands while still staying true to yourself?

I am a young (woman) musician embarking on a career in music performance. So much of the job, particularly for women, involves looking sexy. I am also an introverted person who is dealing with quite a bit of social and career anxiety (making me even less inclined to "put on a show"). Those of you in similar positions, how do you conform to the industry expectations of how you should look and act without making yourself uncomfortable?

Sexy high-waisted panties that cover your whole ass

Victoria secret keeps flashing in my facebook feed, and as much as I appreciate a hungry-looking butt feasting on thongs, that look is not for me. But I also want to look good in and like my underwear at the same time. Fruit of the Loom's cheap enormous cotton panties (*though I love me some natural fibres) are not cutting it. Help? Be my magical undie-god-mothers?

Finding pants for big bellies, or: Why I rock maternity pants when I'm not pregnant

No pants ever fit! Everyone thinks I am pregnant! Where can I find pants that accommodate a big belly? Then it struck me: Well, maternity pants. Duh. So I have been wearing this Target pair for a few months. But I'm wondering… Do any Offbeat Mamas or Homies with Non-Baby Bumps have more recommendations for belly-accommodating stores or styles that are comfortable and go a step above yoga/sweatpants?
