I stopped breastfeeding my 20 month old son a fortnight ago and I finally feel like my body is my own for the first time in 3 years!
I saw this in the window of my local Fat Face and love it, but - honest opinions please - is this sort of thing only suitable for teens and 20-somethings? My 33rd birthday is next month (how the hell did that even happen?!) and it'll be my first clothing purchase since I got pregnant 3 years ago, so I feel thoroughly out of my depth and don't want to look like a total and utter tit.....
I have a dress v similar to that and I'm going to be 40 this year. I thought fatface was pretty much aimed at women my age and older and I buy quite a bit from there (bought a chunky knitted dress from there this morning!).
I started off just buying kids stuff from there, but it's grown a bit and now the whole family - inc my MIL - seem to have an item or two from fatface!
I actually buy a lot our of fat face now because I'm in my late 30's because I was struggling to buy clothes that were still young enough for me but not shopping in the same shops as my teenage daughter. I thought it was aimed at our age group. I've never seen anything in there that I would say are aimed at the very young.
However, I did buy a dress very similar to that from Next thought and ended up taking it back as it made me look like an oversized school girl in a pinafore!! I think that might have just been my body shape though!
Thank you! I've ordered one and I'll wear it with pride!!
Breathedeep I've lived in 3 pairs of primark jeggings and half a dozen tshirts. Before that it was maternity clothes out of the attic from when I was upduffed with baby 1. It wasn't worth buying naice new clothes because they got puked on or snotted on and I found breastmilk caused grease stains, plus I was limited on style because of the breastfeeding (no dresses - this will be the first one I've worn in years!)... So yeah, I look like a slob. It's horrid.
