Inspiration in desperate need.

Ok I'm going to be honest. I've never been this size before.. always been a size 10-12 but since ds 5 months ago the baby weight hasn't gone and despite lots of walking its mostly stuck.

So I'm choosing to accept this for now but I'm really not sure how to look fashionable and this size.... god that sounds awful but I don't mean it to. I mean I'm not really sure about leggings and long tops which others seem to go for ... and what kind of jeans ? Are skinny still ok or is that a no no ? What boots with jeans? I have absolutely no idea.

Current outfits mostly next skinny jeans, burgundy converse and zip up hoodies or long ish t shirts. Boring boring boring.

Give me some links and ideas as I'm feeling pretty down about myself at the moment. Relatively low ish budget.

I wear jersey or tea dresses, leggings or tights and boots .long sleeved top underneath .

dresses. Can't bear a waistband. leggings feel soooo good, but I'm aware they're shit. Can't help myself though. Isabella Oliver jeans in the superskinny look good on me, and have just the right amount of stretch. They're the only jeans that look halfway decent on me. Jersey dresses are your friends, as are button through tea dresses.

Thanks. I'm a bit scared of dresses and worried they're going to make me look mumsy (even though I am a mum... and I'm my head I am eternally 18 of course which doesn't help !)... I will have a look at some tea dresses, thank you.

The I Oliver jeans sound nice. I will have a look.

What sort of boots should I be wearing with dress ?? Ankle or knee high, are ballet flats out now? I have no idea !

reindeerjumper Thu 08-Nov-12 09:57:55

I wear DMs, ankle boots or biker boots with mine.

I'm a similar size and I live in dresses. They are so much more flattering on me than trousers( I do wear skirts and tops too)

On me, trousers just seem to create a whole bunch of awkward lines and places for lumps and bumps to be highlighted. The only ones I have just now are some coloured skinnies which I wear with a long cowl neck and a light but very long jersey cardi. And killer heels. But generally something like a fit and flare or skater dress, something which highlights my waist.

Oh, and a good bra!

Love this thread. I'm living the same nightmare and it's starting to get me down. I was always 10/12 too and now I seem to neither 14 or 16. 14 too tight in the wrong places, 16 too baggy.

I'm scared to spend any money becasue everything looks shit on me now and has totally zapped my confidence. I hate going out because I always look like crap. I live in my manky maternity jeans and some actually quite flattering black skinnies from Mango. Tops are just a nightmare and I always look awful because I can't seem to get it right. I have big boobs, small waist but still have my saggy bump so anything remotely short is a huge no-no but I can't find tunic style tops that are flattering. I hate mad geometric patterns and crazy psychedelic colours. Well, I don't hate them but I'm more of a black/blue/grey/maroon girl.

Dresses seemed like a great idea and I went out and spent a fortune but they're all either the wrong shape or I can't get the zip up because boobs are too big. I have a wardbrobe full of lovely dresses that I can't wear! I have tried a couple of jersey dresses and they seem to accentuate everything I'm desperate to hide :-(

Can anyone actually point me in the direction of dresses which are going to look reasonably okay despite these problems? Sorry for thread hijack but the reason I am on the board in the first place is for answers to this very question!

I think I share a wardrobe with Reindeer wink

I also swear by dresses. I think it's because it's one piece, it makes me look more streamlined rather than cut in half which is how I feel when I wear separates. I wear them over leggings/opaques or jeggings with biker boots/DMs (Primark have some really good DM rip offs for £18) I have just raided ASOS for dresses. I really rate them actually.

This is what I've bought

Bupcakes,

love those dresses, but woud they work for those of us with excess norkage?

Erm. Bups I have 2 of those dresses already shock grin

I'm only 5'4 but a 14 (low-carbing and shredding so hopefully will be a 12 soon)

I live in tea dresses or jersey dresses with tights/leggings and biker boots.

Not mumsy in the slightest

BupcakesAndCunting Thu 08-Nov-12 14:55:44

I have big booblahs! (34f) They seem to work for me. DH is most impressed with the frontage in the red dress wink

We have fabulous taste, Bunny. Mwah.

Ha! My DP too.

He does Vic Reeves-esque thigh rubbing when I wear it grin

izzybobsmum Thu 08-Nov-12 15:10:59

I'm the same size. I have quite a few jersey wrap style dresses from M and S which I wear with coloured tights and biker style black boots.

Have just bought this (if the link works):

m.marksandspencer.com/mt/www.marksandspencer.com/Per-Una-Paisley-Print-Knotted/dp/B004HQWB32?ie=UTF8&ref=sr_1_35&nodeId=43009030&sr=1-35&qid=1352387308&pf_rd_r=17TFHT2MQCGB7595MH0R&pf_rd_m=A2BO0OYVBKIQJM&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_i=43009030&pf_rd_p=321381387&pf_rd_s=related-items-3

Alternatively, leggings or jeggings with long tops. I have some lovely soft grey jeggings from M and S with a wide, smooth elasticated top, so there's no muffin top on show!

Fairylea Thu 08-Nov-12 18:09:03

Brilliant ! Love the links... those asos dresses are lovely... and the m and s one too.. thanks.

Given me a few ideas !!

I am of big boobage too.. ff cup. Sigh. There's just so much more to love... cough. smile

I seem to wear the same as everyone else on here grin

Dresses (wrap and tea style usually) tights and boots.

cheeseandmushroomghostie Fri 09-Nov-12 17:55:03

Marking my place to buy those Asos dresses later grin

PetaO Fri 09-Nov-12 17:59:10

Loving all the dresses, but do they work with breastfeeding?

HardHittingLeafletCampaign Sat 10-Nov-12 00:45:15

Subbing for same reason as PETA, need a stretchy neckline or buttons or some option for whipping out of boobs.

So happy to have found this thread which is exactly what I was searching for. I have so little in my wardrobe which actually fits these days. I feel so frumpy and have no idea what suits my sagging, bulging, size 14 mid-40's shape anymore. As someone who used to be a rock-chick and even occasionally admired and complemented for my fashion sense, I am feeling quite low! My two favourite dresses have given up the ghost, now being so old and holey they are beyond repair. With finances scarce and Christmas nearly here my budget is small. I have just been into Fat Face and tried about 8 different dresses in their sale but they all looked awful. Echo the comments above about jersey clinging in all the wrong places. There seems to be two different types of jersey - I have a lovely swirly M&S skirt in heavy jersey which hangs beautifully but the Fat Face dresses are thin jersey and they make me look even more lumpy than usual! I could cry!! I can't live my life in one long black skirt! I have always avoided Asos as I can't try on and I hate the chore of having to return things by mail. But this thread has given me the confidence to order one of those skater dresses (to be worn with black leggings to hide my fat legs!) Thanks everyone, I feel a little more cheerful already.

This is surprising flattering. I am a 14/16 and I got the small as the medium was too baggy. It comes down just below mid thigh.

Next do some high waisted jeans in skinny or slim leg and they really hold you in without a muffin spill over. The black ones are true to size but the blue/black need to be sized down.

I also got some suede over the knee boots which are really flattering. They have elastic up the back to they fit and stay put.

Will try and link other good buys...

Fairy and analogue you sound like me, I live in skinny jeans converse and black or grey tops. I used to be a size 10 but am now a 14 and don't know how to dress for my shape, dresses just seem to accentuate my big tum sad
