I’ve been scouring around ASOS.COM for the sale season. I actually have a clothing haul coming up on the blog, but firstly, my dress wishlist. Summer is the season for dresses and I’m seeing so many dresses that I would love to own 🙂
Top left is a subtle lace dress in a cool grey colour. Bottom left is a flowy black dress, perfect for a curvy body with the bell sleeves evening out the figure. Right side is a lovely, structured white dress which has a nice length, covers the arms and shows a little bit of leg.
Left side, floral gown that goes in at the waist and a little floral sleeve that covers the arms.
Middle, structured yet effortless white dress for lovely summer evenings.
Right side, structured dress on the formal side. I love stripes!
Hi there! I must admit I enjoyed posting my outfit of the day yesterday because of the reaction from you guys!
I know that there are many of you out there, that are struggling with finding cool, edgy and on trend outfits when you don’t fit into size 4 or 6.
Today I took a stroll with my baby boy, I had some errands to run. This is my outfit today :).
PS – does anyone else have that problem with your jeans? I just found a pair that suits me, but they are too long. I don’t understand the clothing business. She is bigger, therefore, she is also taller??? No, I can be bigger and a regular height, yes, it’s possible!
I thought I’d try something new on my blog. I wanted to incorporate more useful knowledge for you guys. I want to start posting some ootds of curvy/plus size fashion.
Since I was young my body has been curvy/plus size. I’ve always struggled with finding clothes that suit me that has also been fashionable.
In recent years many high street stores make their clothes up to size 14-16 (American sizes) and 44-46 Scandinavian sizes. I’ve been especially pleased with H&M making bigger sizes in their “normal” fashion range. But I want to give credit to http://www.Asos.com which for years now has a real fluidity in between the asos.com fashion and their plus size or curvy range.
It just makes the shopping experience so much nicer! Now, I can feel as part of the rest of women shopping in the stores or online. It also gives me the opportunity of buying clothes that are actually in fashion.
What I’ve also struggled with a lot is: what is suiting me as a curvy woman? Do I buy a big sack and disappear in that, do I buy only black clothes because I once heard it makes me simmer? Do I always need to have a belt across the thinnest part of my body because I once heard that’s slimming? Do any of you guys recognize this? Am I the only one feeling like this?
I wanted to share an ootd kind of post to share my knowledge of how to dress when you’re curvy or plus size. I feel like I’ve been through it all; restricting myself to certain outfits, wearing things that have been exactly on trend to now have found some kind of happy medium.
So, tell me, do you now of any online stores that have amazing curvy/ plus size fashion that I don’t know of?
