A Guide To A Stylish Plus Size Life

Body Party...

I don’t wear a ton of body-con clothing. It’s not that I don’t like them it’s just that I have a hard time finding pieces that I am comfortable with. See the way my stomach is set up (lololol) it doesn’t always look the best on me. I am strong believer in wearing things that work for you and make you feel beautiful! I don’t subscribe to the rules that a lot of people set on themselves as far as clothing goes, but I do know what works for me and what doesn’t work for me.

I fell in love with this dress from Fashion to Figure and but I was really nervous to try it.  Instantly I was drawn to the subtle cut out detail, the longer length and the long sleeve of this dress. As I ordered the dress, I realized my biggest hang up was I didn’t want to be disappointed if I couldn’t wear the dress. To my extreme surprise, the dress was extremely stretchy and it fit perfectly! I threw on a pair of Spanxs to smooth me out even further! Wearing this dress was the encouragement I need to keep trying more body-con pieces.

How do you guys feel about body-con? How does it fit into your wardrobe?

  1. LOL! The way your stomach is set up... You are silly! You look fabulous as always! I love bodycon, particularly skirts. I like to wear them to work with a peplum top/blazer or during date nights. I don't wear them as much as I used to because I'm more of a fit and flare girl, but I have a few in my closet.

    1. Thank you Ashley! I am just starting to find different ways to put body con in my wardrobe. I really do like the idea of wearing the skirt! I am a fit and flare girl myself... but I am trying to put my money where my mouth is and try something new!

  2. I love bodycons but I've gained some weight in my stomach post marriage so I'm not as comfortable as I used to be wearing them. I rock them from time to time but until I get this midsection back to where it needs to be they will be worn sparingly. Boohoo's bodycons work very well for me right now but the ones made from thin clingy material are a absolute no for me. I LOVE this one on you it works very well with your figure and it fits you great imo. I would be totally chicken to rock this but you DID THAT!

    1. V... I was so sad when the Boohoo dress didn't fit me, but I just had to make it work for me. But I was so excited when this one fit. I have gained so much weight in my tummy that I have a tendency to stay away from anything that pulls to tight, but I am trying a few new things. Thank you so much and you would look fabulous in this!

  4. That dress looks great on you. Was wondering, are those shoes comfortable or do you only wear them when you won't be walking much?

  8. This looks great on you! I have real problems with body con clothes, personally, but one of the reasons I follow fatshion bloggers is to help me feel more comfortable in my skin. It's extraordinary how powerful having visible role models can be, and it makes me realize how few times the mainstream shows us beautiful fat women wearing body con clothes. More, please!
