What’s this, I hear you cry? Another Primark maxi dress? And worn just one day after the first? Well, yes, actually. I love these jersey maxis – so easy to wear, so simple to style and super flattering on a curvy figure. Someone asked me if us bottom-heavy girls could carry off a maxi dress without adding unwanted pounds to our bums. I hope this answers that question – yes! The belt flattens my stomach and breaks up the block colour, while the cardigan adds detail to my top half to help balance things out. I’m not aiming for skinny (we all know that ain’t ever gonna happen! Can I get a ‘hell yeah’?!), but cleverly curved.
Do you have any tips for dressing your particular body shape? I tend to ignore whatever Trinny, Susannah and their ilk (although I have a special place in my heart for Gok) tell me and wear what I think suits me. I always look in a full length mirror with a critically honed eye and I’m never afraid to admit when I get it wrong. What about you? Whether slim and slender or vivacious and curvaceous, I want to know!
