An Exercise In Trivial Pursuits

Fatshion, Food & Frivolities – Life in Las Vegas & Singapore

Fat-shionista #477


I’m wearing a brand new dress sponsored by the kind folks at FLOW.

FLOW a leading apparel brand for curvy and full-figured women will make its debut appearance exclusively at Isetan Scotts, Singapore. The brand offers a variety of fashionable collections ranging from sizes US8 (UK12) to US18 (UK22).

This is one of the 6 pieces (4 dresses, 1 cardigan and 1 top) that I had picked and I’m definitely recommending this dress! I popped it into the wash last week and hung it out to dry in the garden. The jersey fabric not only dried quickly but needed no ironing at all! Here’s a tip though – when storing it in your closet, use felt hangers. Felt hangers not only prevent this smooth and wide necked dress from slipping off the hanger but also minimises warping. In fact, use felt hangers whenever you can.

What I appreciate most about this faux-wrap dress is the pleated panel in front. I flipped it open to show Sian Eng that it actually hides an unslightly belly bulge. But because it skimms over that area partially, it works like magic to immediately diguise it.

I’d like to recommend this to larger sized ladies with a problem with their mid-section; also works better if you’re taller than I am at 1.53m because I found the dress about 2-3 inches longer than I’d have preferred. I also had to pull up the sleeves because they were at least 2″ beyond my wrists. Other than that, the super soft, crease-free fabric and flattering cut are awesome brownie points for me! I am a usual UK16 and am wearing a US12 here.

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. That dress is GORGEOUS! I also have a jelly belly so anything that flatters the mid-section is a winner!

  2. Also, look what it does to your cleavage 😀
    Love jersey.
