The pencil skirt is one of those items women either love or tell me that they can’t wear. In actual fact, the pencil skirt, when fitted correctly is one of the most universally flattering skirts amongst A-Line and wrap style skirts.
When I pick up a pair of skinny jeans or slim leg jeans for a client who ranges from a size 16 and up, I’m met with a cautious look.
Ah, January 1st. That time of year when we’re all reminded to dust off our hideously stiff running shoes, strap our boobs down with sports bras and be #blessed and #eatclean until we develop summer bodies just in time for winter.
I love a bit of leg, shaving them is quite a task, but in the right outfit – they’re amazing. Now this post isn’t for women who already have gloriously long, evenly toned legs.
When summer comes around, we often find ourselves walking past swimwear stores with one thought ‘Oh god, it’s that time again,’ and as someone whose only ever burned and jiggled in the sun myself, I’m part of that squad too.
If you range between a size 8 to 12 in Australia, you usually don’t have much of a problem finding clothing, sizes 14 and 16 still aren’t that hard to find either – but once you hit a size 18, 20, 22, 24, 26, 28 or 30 – your options can seem like they’re seriously low. But fear not my gorgeous, Effortless Bitches. I’ve been making lists again and from the reaction to our last curvy girls post where I made a lengthy list of brands you can shop with for formal wear, if you’re a size 16 to 22 in Australia (which you can have a geez at here), I decided to make another one!
While I would be the modelling industry’s idea of plus size at a size 10, I’ve never been in the position myself where I couldn’t find an evening dress because majority of brands didn’t cater for my size.
Fat days suck. They often come as a package deal with our time-of-month, full-moon looneys and forgetting our coffee cards right when we were due for a free coffee stamp. I hear you, sister. But lets not confuse ourselves between a fat day and a day where you might have to go up a size in clothing.
There is not one client I have that I don’t recommend clothing alterations to. For me, not recommending alteration would as disastrous and nightmarish as walking out of a store with a bag with a bag of spanking new crocs.
Boobs, they’re the best and worst things for us women, regardless of the size.
I’m hired to style plus size women on a regular basis and one thing I do notice is a huge lack of options for anyone with a sense of style.
Focus On Dressing For Your Shape Instead Of Obsession Over A Weight.
When looking good only seems possible when the idea is attached to a certain size or body shape, it takes the fun right out of style and makes you feel like you’ve got less options. So instead of focusing on a number, focus on a feeling; confidence.
