I must confess I can get a little too excited when I see cool plus size pieces available in high street brands. It must be because for so long I have felt neglected by so many brands. For countless times I have felt like there was something wrong with me because I wanted to wear a certain piece but they did not have my size. It still happens every now and then.
But the truth is nowadays there is much more availability for large sizes in high street fashion. It is still far from the ideal – and by “ideal” I mean cool, affordable designs, sustainable fashion and opportunities for all. But I got to say I love to see Lindex, for instance, providing fashion in more sizes, for a reasonable price and quality.
When I saw the colour of this dress I was just eager to check if my size was there. Guess what? They had my XL and it went up to XX. I tried it on and voilà, it had to be mine.
After I took the pictures I realised that maybe not everybody would like the shape because it is a bit loose and it may make me look a bit bigger. But girl, come on, what makes us look big is food not clothes ahhahahahaha.
But then again, isn’t that another type of beauty standard? Why should plus size ladies only wear curves flattering clothes? I can easily say that somehow I am also affected by this type of standard. I love myself a bodycon piece that shows the would how beautiful my body is. But most of all, I am a fan of wearing what I like, how I like, when I like. And this dress I love.
