Hey curvy girls all over the world,This weekend, I rocked one of my favorite tops from H&M. I bought this red and white polka dot top back in January. I've worn it with everything from capri's to my denim pencil skirt. This weekend I wore it with my white skinny's and blue suede shoes. What I like about this top is that it's over sized and billowy. A few years ago, I would have shied away from an over sized billowy top for fear of looking bigger, but, when you become confident with your body you don't allow negative thoughts of looking bigger to infiltrate your mind.
However, I do believe in creating proportions that make sense. If I wear something with a lot of volume on top I do go slimmer on the bottom. This is not the case all the time, but you get what I'm saying.
There are a number of plus size girls who sleep on H&M because they think they will not find anything to fit them. Let me just tell you how important it is to try things on because you never know what may work. This particular top is a size 12 and I made it work for my shape. If you need a few tips on how to shop non plus size stores then check out an old post I did last year called, "Why size doesn't always matter." As I said in that article, my clothes range from BCBG to Lane Bryant. Sometimes, you just never know.
