I’m either a “round”, a “rectangle” or an “apple/diamond”. I don’t know which one. I have no waist to speak of and my bust, boobs and hips seem to have almost the exact same measurements except for the fact that they jut out from different angles. I also tend to have a high sitting belly.
For all the above reasons, I love shift dresses that either skim past my mid-section or those that flare out to give the illusion of hips. More than anything else, I love my jeans. They are my Saturday staple and I currently own about 5 pairs – different colours and fit. My running however has now significantly toned or reduced my lower body and I am a UK14 for bottoms whilst remaining a UK16 waist and up. The hunt for new bottoms (i.e. jeans) begins!!
Because I’m only 1.53m tall and I technically have a shorter torso than the average person, I usually pick low-waist petite length jeans. Most times, 3/4 or capris fit me like full length bottoms, so those work too. And because of my belly, stretchy jeans give the best fit! I’m on the hunt for new jeans but they shouldn’t cost me more than S$60 a pair! With the exchange rates these days though, I think S$60 does go a lot further than before.
Anybody seen this range of plus-sized jeans from Marisota? I was pointed to this link recently and 3 of their 9 styles caught my eye. Now, I’m curious.
- WOW jeans – designed to make your bum look perkier without going to the gym
- SLIM-FIT jeans – skinnies with stretch
- JEGGINGS – no explanation needed, I love jeggings.
I’m not sure about the prices though. They are a little more than what I’d normally spend but I’m a bargain hunter and everything is always a little more than what I’m willing to pay. Most Singaporeans willingly pay over S$100 for Levi’s and I do value the fit of a great pair of jeans. They are generally hardier and last longer than most other items in my wardrobe. Maybe it’s time to think about paying a little bit more.
Ok anyway, I’m thinking of
I’m not sure how opaque the last one is and I’m definitely not wearing it with my top tucked in! Also high-waisted might mean it goes right up to just under my boobs! Then again, it also looks like it’ll be great under my 100000 tunic tops/short dresses!
