My Active Body

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears Sonsee Power Long Sleeve Tee and Rainbeau Curves Veronica Print Capris

When I look at the models in activewear ads, I never see bodies like mine. The fat, lumpy bodies with rolls and big thighs and tummies. My body is the kind of body that’s shown as a “before picture”, not as one that is active. Sometimes people with bodies like mine are photographed and made fun of, as I shared on my Facebook page recently, and quite a few people told me that things like this make them feel uncomfortable going to the gym or exercising in public. I don’t give a shit if you’re fat or thin, have wobbly bits or washboard abs, I think that everyone should have the right to exercise if they want to. View Post

A Casual Affair

New Zealand plus size fashion blogger Meagan Kerr wears Dolce&Gabbana Sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses

Jeans, a tee and a khaki jacket is a pretty classic outfit, a great go to when you’re after something casual but still put together. Add trainers, a red lip and some sunglasses and you are good to go! I work from home most of the time and lipstick doesn’t happen very often (although I am trying to wear it more often to add a pop of colour to my mostly black outfits). View Post

New Zealand Plus Size Fashion

Wearing 17 Sundays dress and shoes from boohoo.com

Yesterday an article on Stuff mentioned that size 18 is the top seller at New Zealand department store Farmers. They also mentioned that many New Zealand retailers only go to a size 14-16 – something that many of you wish wasn’t the case. One of the things so many people say to me about New Zealand plus size fashion is that they would love to have the options available in straight size – there are so many different designs, prints and colours that are difficult to find in bigger sizes – especially if you want to shop in store and be able to try things on!

Boohoo Plus Clothing Haul

Meagan Kerr wears Boohoo Plus Tara Crepe Frill Sleeve Top in size 26

After having varied experiences with boohoo.com (some purchases were great and some not so much), I’d given up on them until I recently found out that their plus size range had expanded from 16-24 to 16-28. I believe in second chances, and figured that if they had extended their range then perhaps they might have sorted out their fit issues as well. View Post

Summer Girl

New Zealand plus size blogger Meagan Kerr wears white tee from Torrid and Kate Madison blue denim shorts from The Warehouse

I’ve just come back from my summer holiday and one thing that I wore a lot (as predicted!) was my shorts. The weather has been every thing from super hot and humid to chilly and stormy, and my shorts have been a really great go to that are easy to throw on with a tee or a singlet. View Post
