Sculptured

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears River Island Plus tee, Kate Madison leggings, Lost and Led Astray Sculpture Coat and ecco Cool 2.0 Shoes

One thing I’ve noticed in the world of plus size fashion, is how often we use terms like flattering to describe clothes that create the illusion of you being smaller, more hourglass shaped (which is apparently the ideal body shape) or that hide supposed “flaws”. Quite often, people tell me that things I wear are not flattering because they accentuate my wide hips or they are fitted to my body or, in complete contradiction, are not fitted to my body. Hide yourself in fabric, but not too much or you’ll look fat. View Post

Athleisure

Plus size athleisure - New Zealand blogger Meagan Kerr wears Kate Madison pullover, Rainbeau Curves Premier Basix Leggings and Ecco Cool 2.0 Shoes

I’ve always struggled with casual outfits, because I believed for so I long that as a fat woman I had to put more effort into my appearance than smaller women do, and I thought that casual was too casual so I ended up way overdressed a lot of the time. When a thin woman wears sweatpants and has her hair in a messy bun, she’s cute and relaxed. When a fat woman does the same she is seen as lazy and like she doesn’t care about her appearance. I know right, what the heck? View Post

Can I Wear High Necked Tops?

Meagan Kerr wears ASOS CURVE Turtleneck and Harlow Sweetest Taboo Skirt

I have always been told I don’t suit high necked tops because they made my face look rounder, which is apparently a “bad” thing, but I’ve since realised that I don’t give a shit because this is just my bloody face, okay? That’s how it is and there’s nothing wrong with that. View Post

On Turning 33

On turning 33: Meagan Kerr wears Yours Clothing striped dress and Lost and Led Astray Leggings

This is me at 33. No makeup, no photoshop, no filter, just me – wrinkled eyes, tired smile and striped dress. I think it’s important to take note of ourselves, what we look like and how we are. My birthday always seems like a good time to reflect on the life I’ve lived so far, and my plan for the year to come. View Post

Sweet Ambrosia

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears IGIGI Ambrosia wiggle dress

Have you ever put on a dress and immediately felt absolutely amazing in it? That’s how I felt the minute I shimmied into the Ambrosia dress from IGIGI. When I looked at it on their website I thought it was beautiful, but I’ll admit that it took a moment of bravery to order it. It’s curve hugging and it leaves no room to hide: to me it’s a bold dress. I almost chickened out and chose something else, but I’m so glad I went with this, because it honestly makes me feel like a million bucks. View Post
