Again, due to popular demand (so many emails and messages), I bring you my ‘curvy mama edit’. It has been a while since my last one, so apologies for that. I was amazed how many fab things there are out there for the curvier mamas amongst you. Admmitedly, you do have to look that little bit harder, but there are certainly plenty of gorgeous things to buy! I didn’t approach my edit any differently to a regular post – I have just picked our my favourites. I definitely do no subrcribe to any ‘fashion rules’ as to what one should or shouldn’t wear according to their size (whether that’s curvy or super-slim) – the most important thing is how you feel in something. And anyway, not matter how slim you may or may not be (and franky, do we really care? Haven’t we got more important things to be thinking about??), you’re never going to find me adovating crop tops and batty riders on Little Spree. And thank God for that!
ps: most things I’ve featured in this post go up to sizes 22 and 28. Some pieces even go up to a 32. Happy shopping gorgeous curvy mamas!
ps: I am a big fan of Boden’s ‘ponte’ trousers. They are super-flattering for curvier shapes (myself included) and they have a lovely stretch to them (so comfy). I have these (in black), but these ones are new and go up to a size 22. They would look great with a pretty top or blouse tucked in.
pps: I know it’s June and I’ve included a few coats, but seriously – it’s freezing some days in London!! Yes in June! I was wearing my Winter coat just last week. And anyway, I have only chosen ‘lighter’ ones for those chillier, er, June days…
