Would you wear this?
I've got a specific style I work with for my body type and I tend not to divert. Skinny jeans were really hard for me to get into because I felt they were calling attention to the shape I've always tried to mask with a wider leg pant. Same thing with baby doll dresses - my best asset is my waist and hourglass shape, so I dont like having so much bagging in that area.

But sometimes I see things that I think no plus woman would really look that good in. I realize that some fatshionista can show me up with a picture of themselves wearing that style and change my mind, but I ran across a few things at ASOS Curve that I just can't get behind.

Dress One:
asos,plus size

-I really dont want to look like I put a tutu on crooked. Especially not in that color. I mean, I vote no for this dress not just on the grounds of it being unflattering on a plus size person, but a skinny person as well. Nay.

Dress Two:
asos,plus size

-The shape of the overall dress is flattering but why the lace over just one boob? And she doesn't look too busty and it's not even covering her entire bust. If you are chesty, this will definitely bisect your boob in a very unflattering way. And if it cups your whole boob, then I think you will just end up looking like a stripper. However, this is the one that I expect the most people will disagree with me on because I have a feeling it could be fierce-a-fied by the right person. I am just not that person.

Dress Three:
asos,plus size

-This is a dress that I just don't think will be cute on a plus girl. It's so shapeless it's like a pale pink potato sack. I also don't think the square neckline is going to do a big busted or broad shouldered girl any favors. It hides any shape you might have.

Do you agree/disagree?

    Lisa, I saw the pink dress on the fit model for ASOS Curve and everyone loved it and I felt bad, cause I thought it looked like an oversize tent. It's just not for me and it's actually quite SHORT for girls that are 5'7" and taller. :/ I know what ya mean.

    I don't mind the last one. It's kind of retro. But I don't love any of them.
