How to Dress for Your Body Shape

How to dress for your body shape

I remember reading Cosmo as a teenager, and trying to figure out what shape my body was. Was I a pear? A column? An hourglass? I’m definitely not an apple, my legs are too big and my boobs are enormous. I never quite fit in the definition of any of those shapes, so the “how to dress for your body shape” guides were never all that helpful. As a plus size woman, I found them even less helpful – I’m big in this bit, even bigger in that bit and small in that bit. I decided that I was peanut shaped – sort of hour glass but with more lumps and bumps. How do you figure out what shape you are? I get asked to write guides about dressing for your body shape all the time, so here it is – a really easy guide to figure out what you should wear depending on your shape. View Post

Here’s a few that I’ve found – let me know which ones you like! View Post

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. I bought my first Christmas tee last year and I love it. View Post
