Okay - I adore this Anna Scholz print. The fact of the matter is, Curvy Girls do NOT have to adhere to rules. If YOU have guidelines you've made for yourself about what feels good on your body, how to dress and what makes you feel confident - that is fine, and probably quite normal... however, if you buy into body shaming pressure and think - "well, I'm not supposed to wear prints, or colours, or body con..." because of magazines, some idiot on TV or something else... THINK AGAIN.
This is the White Label Digital Jersey Pleat Dress (£269).
You KNOW I am a size 20. Now, when I organised to go in and see the Anna Scholz collection - they knew that too. Most of what I had to try on was a size 20. Some garments were a size 18. THIS is a size 18. This digital print jersey dress, with it's loud print and body-hugging cut is a size smaller than what I wear - and I STILL could not resist it. BAH! To "Fashion Rules".
This is COMPLETELY SLAMMING.
The dress has an asymmetrical neckline which extends (as a line) down the body and then has pleats which gather into either side of this line. This creates a line INWARDS, so while being a body hugging print dress - it actually has an effect that draws the eye and seems elongating in nature - THIS dress seems to DEFY all those daft rules I dislike so much! Not only is this funky and vibrant - but it is COMFORTABLE too.
I adore this. This is an EMPOWERING dress to wear and I tell you, if you buy it - you WILL feel like you can conquer the city.
