Underwear, that’s fun to wear!

citychic-lingerie-001

I have a confession to make, I have never been properly fitted for a bra. Nope. Though I know I am not alone. I found the perfect t-shirt bra a few years ago, bought 4 (2 white, 1 black, 1 bright pink) and called it day. While I do love lingerie, a lot of it isn’t for every day wear, especially plus size items. It’s all babydolls and frills. There never used to be a good ‘inbetween’. Something sexy & stylish, comfortable yet firm, but also affordable.

I’d always looked at the lingerie City Chic released, and would sigh. Sometimes being a plus size lady, with itty bitty titties was annoying. A size 22b was hard to find, and then City Chic started releasing some bras in more cup sizes. Hallelujah!

If you have the chance, go in and try them on. I fell SO in love with the Mila bra, I tried it on in it’s smallest cup size (a D!) and it fit, really well actually. I never thought i’d see the day when I would wear & fit a D cup.

So, this is me. Stretch marks, cat scratches, lumps and bumps. And you know what? I love my body, it’s not perfect, but it’s been with me all my life (duh!). It’s seen me through the best and worst of times, it took me until my 20s to realise that my body is something precious and I should take care of it and respect it. In my teens I had a lot of self hatred after being bullied all throughout school, and I’m human, I still have those moments when “I wish my arms were a bit thinner, or that I didn’t have a double chin”, but then I remember, that things could be so much worse, and I should be happy because i’m pretty lucky to be me.

These pictures were taken by a good friend of mine, and let me say, it’s pretty nerve wracking stripping down to your underwear in front of other people. Random fact, my first ever post on this blog was pretty much about them! So a huge thank you to Nick from Purple Nebula Photography for taking these pictures, and to Kayley for your help making me laugh and not feel so nervous.

Outfit – Neverland

If you’ve been following me for awhile, you know I love Peter Pan. I went by the online alias of Natatree Darling for years, Darling, after the Darlings in Peter Pan. It’s a story that means a lot to me, so when Black Milk released some Peter Pan designs, I knew I needed to snap one up.

I decided to try the shooter dress, as it was a style I’d never tried before. I love it, though I do find it a bit hard to style. It’s not a style I would normally wear, but after some playing around, I came up with this outfit. It’s fun to try new styles now and then, things a bit out of your comfort zone.

It’s a bit too short for me to wear as a dress, so I paired it with a short pleather skirt. Also, it’s Melbourne, and cold, so layers help keep me warmer. Now I really need to add the Peter Pan leggings to my collection.

Of course, I wore my crocodile earrings! Tick tock!
