Plus Size Christmas Jumpers and Tees

Plus size Christmas jumpers and tees

Every year I put together a selection of my favourite plus size Christmas jumpers, and this year is no exception. Added to the mix are a few Christmas tees, because it’s summer here in New Zealand and that means it’s way too warm to wear a big fluffy jumper.

SAMA + KIKI Plus Size Maternity

Sama and Kiki Flutter Sleeve Maxi Dress

I hear from a lot of mums and mums to be that finding plus size maternity and nursing clothing is hard, especially in New Zealand. When Sarah Raman was pregnant with her kids, she really struggled to find flattering, functional and fashionable plus size maternity and nursing clothing that she looked and felt great in, so she did what Kiwis are known for – Sarah decided to take the DIY route and make her own.

Short legs and cropped pants

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Kate Madison Lace Up Side Top and Cropped Bengaline Pants from The Warehouse

I’m pretty short and proportionally I have a long torso and short legs. I thought that this was the reason it has always been a nightmare for me to find trousers that fit me properly. I have had to hem my trousers for as long as I can remember, because pants weren’t just an inch or two too long, they were six inches to a foot too long. That’s the size of a bloody Subway sandwich isn’t it? Continue reading
