Hey guys! Every now and again I get a question from one of you regarding fashion advice. While I'm not a professional stylist a la Gok Wan or Trinny & Susannah, I'll still help when I can! Recently I received this on twitter:
I'm also someone with a large belly, so I understand how you feel! Personally, the kind of dresses I gravitate towards are ones with an empire line shape - they are fitted at the bust, and the waist is higher up on the body. This means the fabric flows over your tummy meaning you can go about your day knowing you look great without feeling self-conscious!
Luckily, Yours have some lovely dresses that have this precise shape, so I've picked out my favourites...
This beautiful floral maxi is available in a myriad of colours and florals, and all with the beautiful empire cut that is so flattering for us belly-heavy ladies! My favourite is this purple version.
For an empire style dress with sleeves, our gaga dresses are perfect. And most of you agree, as most colour options are all but sold out completely! The waist is defined under the bust, and the skirt is gathered under the waist and at the hips, giving more coverage to larger tummies.
Our black babydoll has been an incredible success and it's easy to see why - it's completely glamorous and 100% flattering. The skirt flares out from straight under the bust, meaning you'll never have to worry about showing the outline of your belly. For you taller ladies, it may be best to team with leggings if you're wary of showing too much leg.
Another babydoll dress, this one is definitely more of a summer daytime feel. I have actually tried this on myself, and it looks stunning. If you're short, then this is great to wear as a dress with bare legs or sheer tights!
What do you think of my picks? I'd love to hear from you! You can comment, tweet or facebook me. Speak to you soon!
