The dress itself is really lovely, a faux-wrap bodice with short sleeves, and straight-cut skirt. It has slight gathering both back and front to accommodate a little junk in the tum ‘n’ trunk. Which is pretty great for a fuller shape like mine!
I think it could easily be used in vintage inspired looks for my vintage girls out there looking for everyday clothing. However, it’s modern enough for you gals that aren’t so interested in dressing in the style!
One thing I love about Yours Clothing is that it actually caters for larger sizing, focussing on fit and comfort first and foremost. This dress is from their own collection and comes in sizes 16-36, and at just £29 it’s not just accessible for quite a range of sizes, but also just incredibly affordable.
I took the 22 in this, based off the hip measurement on the size guide. The 18 would have definitely fit me, but the 22 was the best size for my comfort. It’s loose up top, but fits my stomach exactly how I liked it!
Also! The shoes I’m wearing are from Yours Clothing as well, and other than being adorable, lightweight and literally THE MOST COMFORTABLE HEELS EVER – these Block Heel Sandals are in two colours and sizes 4E-9E. you read that right, darlings, wide fit sandals you can wear all day and night! For £15, you’d be stupid to not buy them!
So I’m not going to BS you darlings, I’m not suddenly going to be baring the VBO at all times, but a dress like this is perfect for the start of the second part of my own body acceptance journey.
I really hope you all join me and challenge that comfort zone this weekend!
