PLUS SIZE STYLE: Yes, Black BODYCON Dress!


So, last night I was invited to a friend's birthday party. My friend is ultra-stylish; the party was at a swanky restaurant and would end at a local club - I knew I had to wear a dress that would give me that WOW factor. 

Since I've been working out in beast mode, I'm pretty confident in my body. I still have work to do, but I like the progress I see. I bought the dress, above, on a whim. I saw plenty of other plus size girls rocking bodycon dresses and I thought I'd give it a try. A bodycon dress gets its name from the abbreviation of 'body conscious'. Basically, it's just a TIGHT/FITTED dress that hugs your body. No secrets here, people will be conscious of the body you have. 

I decided to start simple. A black fitted knee length dress would definitely enhance my curvy figure. I've been blessed to have a pear shape, but I'm 6ft tall. My weight is spread nicely, but I carry my curves in my hips and thighs. This dress needed all the confidence. When it arrived in my mailbox I was STOKED! Loved it immediately when I tried it on an vowed to buy many more. 

When I arrived at the party, I was greeted with compliments. The dress was a hit and it was nice to know that all my hard work in the gym is paying off.
