Every woman wants to feel like she is special and beautiful. When I started to put on weight, to be perfectly honest, I know that I wanted to become invisible. My nice clothes didn’t fit any more and I didn’t want to buy larger clothes as I was convinced that I’d be back in my sexy jeans in a couple of weeks. Unfortunately, life gets a bit ahead of you sometimes with long hours at work or social commitments offering themselves up as the perfect excuse to say ‘diet starts tomorrow’.
I’ve been having a look around at the plus size clothing market and I’ve found a website that I want to share with fashion-loving Total Chunk readers.
Simply Be has a really great range of dresses from sizes 8-34 (US) or 12-38 (UK).
The great thing about dresses is that they fit where it matters and still look good whilst your weight is fluctuating. Skirts and trousers can have unforgiving waist bands that dig in when you’ve had a bad week or fall down when you’ve had a good week. One of the problems with being a girl is that our weight naturally goes up and down depending on what time of the month it is. This is why as an adult I’ve become a fan of dresses.
I’ve found a cracking dress that is perfect to wear to the office and won’t break the bank.
I really like this dress as the purple is lovely and rich hue which not only say ‘don’t mess with me’, it is a welcome move from black clothing that a lot of women feel helps them become invisible.
The dress is well structured with a band around the waist to help emphasise your waist.
As the dress cuts just below the knee, it shows off the shape of calves. Worn with heels, this is the kind of outfit that will make you forget about your weight battle and realise that you can still be fashionable and sexy when carrying a few extra lbs.
