With sad regret, I must announce that these shorts have since Monday parted ways with my wardrobe. Not for any other reason except they do not fit me anymore and I finally realized the day I took these photos that even a scoop of ice cream would keep me from breathing properly.
Not too mention they already make my very generous hips look hmm a lot more generous.
Now they have a new owner, one with a model skinny body that made them look so chic that I almost wanted to rip them off her and take them back!
But I knew that on me, they would never look this way!
Which got me thinking about trends and clothes and body types.
One of my biggest problems has always been that I sometimes get caught up in some trend that doesn't suit my body but buy the items anyways only to realize later how ill fitting they are on me.
Or I try to fit into a size much smaller than what I should wear only because the bigger size doesn't look as good.
Wouldn't it be nice if fashion companies would actually take our different body types in consideration when they make clothes? So in my search, I found Kandco which actually has the same range for plus sized clothing as for their regular clothing. Now, I know I'm not actually plus size but to me that is a treat to see that there are fashion brands out there that celebrate our curves!
