Can a Plus Size Princess Wear a Wrap Dress?


I used to be terrified that wrap dresses would accentuate my “lumps” instead of my curves… I’m realizing that’s not the case. This dress is slate blue with a pink sash, and… pockets!

p.s. I took my braids out and I’m rocking my natural hair for the winter, I’m new to the natural hair game and this was my first updo!

Dress: c/o Igigi, available here. Bag: Jessica Simpson, old. Shoes: Avenue, old. Fishnets: Spanx/Lane Bryant available here.

    Hot dang girl! You look fabulous! And, I bet you get this a lot, what I wouldn’t give to have “girls” like yours! Wowza. You keep rockin’ that wrap dress! :)

      *giggles* “the twins” are definitely taking over in this dress… I need to find a cami if I’m going to wear it to work!

    You look great in the dress. I used to be concerned about wearing a wrap dress also, but found that they actually flatter my body and hide some of my flaws (stomach). Was afraid it would make my stomach stand out, but I like them, much more than I thought I would.

      The stomach area freaked me out too, but it does the exact opposite! lol, why did it take me so long to figure this out? ;-)
