Summer is just around the corner and I think it’s fair to say we could all do with a big dollop of juicy sunshine. The promise of lazy summer picnics, beach days and adventures fills my mind and I can picture myself leaping around with Little Button in the summer holiday sunshine like this…
Except, actually this is more like it…
And come to think of it, whilst I imagine myself like this on the beach…
I’m pretty sure the reality is this…
What can I say… I love cake!
But on a serious note, for us larger plus-sized ladies, as the weather starts to heat up and the layers come off it can be a little daunting getting our lumpy bits out.
There is a lot of great fashion out there leaning towards slimmer body types, and I have yet to find a really good, affordable high street label with the same fashions, just altered somewhat to accommodate the extra curves and bumps in a truly flattering way. For instance, I love the idea of light billowy fabrics, but as you can see, (to me) it’s not always a pretty sight. A slightly heavier fabric and a different seam line could have made all the difference.
Tell me it’s not true
I live in hope that I’ve actually been walking around the last 4 years with my eyes closed, and there is in fact an excellent plus-sized high street label, WITH real high street shops a-plenty, that I have missed! If you come across this sparkly brand please do let me know, because I am itching to try out something a bit different this summer that doesn’t resemble a tent.
And Until then?
Well, I have finally come to the conclusion that even if you do feel a bit (ok ok, loads!) lumpy and bumpy, it’s all about confidence and strutting your stuff like you just don’t care. No one else will. Believe me. When was the last time you noticed a stranger and thought, blimey, look at their huge fat wobbly arms? Never right? Exactly!
So, shake what your mamma gave you, because if you feel great inside, you will look beautiful on the outside to everyone who matters. Trust me.
