New Year’s Eve party dress.

khaki plus size bodycon dress and wide fit gold glitter shoes New Look Fashion

This year has been absolutely fantastic. I feel like I have come a long way towards loving myself and my body. So, this New Year’s eve, I am going to celebrate myself and my lush curves.

khaki plus size bodycon dress from New Look Curve

To show of my renewed body confidence, I want a dress that reveals my body and my curves. I want everybody to see that plus size women can wear bodycon dresses and look damn good doing so.

This bold body hugging dress is from New Look Curve. I bought it a while back but didn’t have the chance to wear it yet… or maybe I didn’t have the guts. Growing to love yourself takes time and although I am proud of myself, I often catch myself being critical of myself and putting myself down. But when I shush that inner voice I realize that I am a beautiful woman .

This dress from New Look Curve is amazing! I love it! The fabric is firm and flexible and it fits really nice around my body. The little golden waist belt gives the dress a glamourous touch and goes really well with my gold glitter shoes, also from New look fashion.

The perfect holiday dress.

plus size Lindy Bop 50's swing dress

NEDERLANDS

Jingle bells, jingle bells… Christmas is on the way!!!

I absolutely love the holidays, such a magical time.

plus size Lindy Bop 50's swing dress

When I think about Christmas, I think of a tree filled with lights, stockings hanging from the chimney, warm and cozy homes and hot coco. But most of all, I think about spending time with friends, family and loved ones and all the Christmas parties I have to attend.
So… obviously I need a new dress!

plus size Lindy Bop 50's swing dress

I was thinking about going for something classic this Christmas, maybe a retro styled dress.
Some of my go to stores for plus size retro clothing are: Succubus, Lady V London, Scarlette & Jo, Lindy Bop… They all offer gorgeous dresses, some up to a European size 58 (size 32 UK).

plus size Lindy Bop 50's swing dress

This time I found the dress at succubus. My eye fell on this wine Lindy Bop dress and I thought: this is it! I love the colour and the floral jacquard relief print on the fabric is beautiful. The shape of the dress is amazing, nicely tucked in around the waist with a princess flare skirt. I added a petticoat to make the skirt really pop. The V-neck cut on the back of the dress is absolutely divine. Just the type of dress I was looking for!

Personally I think no Christmas can go without a little glam. So, I added some sparkle with these gold glitter shoes from New Look Fashion.
I feel just like Cinderella with her glass slippers!

I found this dress at succubus for 49.95 euros. It’s available in wine, blue and black. They go up to a 6XL, a European size 52 (size 26 UK). The delivery to Belgium is free and can take up to 7 days, find it here.
I ordered a 3XL; according to their size guide this is a European size 46 (size 20 UK). This fitted me perfectly. I would say Succubus is true to size. If you are not sure about the size, I suggest you take your measurements and go with that. Find their size guide here.
Here are some alternative retro styled dresses I loved as well:

Burgundy banned supersoft lifeform petticoat, 23 inch.

Succubus offers the burgundy petticoat for 49.95 euros, in 2 different length sizes: 20 inch and 23 inch (51cm and 58cm). The petticoats go up to a size XL/XXL, 39 inch (98cm) measured in the waist. I ordered a XL/XXL and this fitted me well. I love how petticoats give these dresses extra flare and a little more swing.
