Fat-shionista #466

Hello it’s Wednesday… Sorry, I forgot I wanted to do What The Frock Wednesdays again. HAH!

Thanks to the kind people at WE LOVE COLORS, I am in love with my brand new Plus Sized Splash Color Tights! I was looking for something blue and not quite galaxy print because I’ve already got 2 pairs in the footless style. This is colour #2132. size A/B. For reference, I’m a UK16/18 and I’m 5′ 0″ (or 1.53m). The tights are a little too long and comes up to just under my boobs but this happens to me all the time because I’m Plus Petite. As with the other WE LOVE COLORS stockings, this has a very strong built-in gusset – which is very important to me as most hosiery manufacturers seem to neglect it. The crotch gusset reduces the stress caused by tugging when you pull them up, so the tights lasts longer and doesn’t rip. Who wants crotchless stockings??? At the same time, I feel that it eliminates the gross camel-toe effect.

Anyway, thank you Sian Eng again for today’s photos.

What I’m wearing today:

Top: Grey HELLO KITTY tank top from FAITH21 (former Forever 21+)

Skirt: Black weave cotton skater skirt from TOPSHOP

Outerwear: Black cropped cardigan from WAREHOUSE

Accessories: Purple necklace/earrings from JuanitaTortilla; Wood cut sleeping fox brooch from Dulcetfig; Purple stretchy belt (came free with a dress) from DOROTHY PERKINS

Leggings: Blue Plus Sized Splash Color Tights from WE LOVE COLORS

Footwear: Black square studded P. Galia loafers from STEVE MADDEN

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.

  1. Those tights are crazy cool man.

  2. I have the reverse problem with tights. I’m 5’7 and I can never get them past the middle of mt thighs.

    • OMG I’m so envious of you! I want to be at least 5′ 4″. That’s my ideal height!

      I think We Love Colors tights might have the right solution for you. Check them out!

      • I think 5’4 is a great height. In the UK 5’7 is too tall. The women are tiny here. All the dresses are too short and I can’t find any shoes for my giant feet!
