This summer’s heat has been brutal. I’m not good with high temperatures normally, but these past few weeks have really been a scorcher!
As a plus size woman, finding the right balance between being comfortable in your clothes and wearing the sort of clothes you like to can be difficult to achieve. I don’t really feel good in shorts and vest tops since I gained weight, and if I cover up then I swelter.
I have a certain style preference too. I’m 31, and to me, that’s still young and I want to look like I’m still young and trendy. In the past, I’ve had trouble hunting for plus size clothes that look like they made for a young person, let along someone with my tastes.
In the last year or so since my clothing size has increased, I’ve found a handful of shops that meet my requirements, one of them being Yours Clothing, so when they got in touch to ask if I’d like to try something from their range, I was delighted.
I chose this floral maxi dress, because it looked like it would keep me cool in the baking heat and I thought it would look really stylish. I was not wrong. It’s made of a lovely light, stretching fabric that doesn’t cling in any unflattering places.
I wouldn’t normally go for such light colours because I always thought they made me look bigger than I am. I don’t think that this dress does emphasise my size. The belt tie brings the dress in at the waist and emphasises my shape the way I want it it to. The pretty flower design in dusky tones is right up my street too. I think all women know there is a good kind and a bad kind of floral, and this dress is very much the good kind.
I’m totally in love with this dress and will be wearing it as often as I can get away with throughout the summer (without making the neighbours think I only own one item of clothing). If you’re plus size (or even if you’re not) I recommend Yours Clothing if you’re after some cool new summer clothes.
