Every now and again Target has some great options for us plus size gals. For a while there I was loving the Belle Curve range. Not so much at the moment though. I love for my clothes to give me a bit of shape to accentuate my body.
I’ll always have a wander through Target to see what they have. Plus size clothing is very limited in Far North Queensland so mainstream department stores are my first go to when looking for a last minute outfit. Generally in remote areas the plus section is limited to one to two racks of clothes.
Recently I was pleasantly surprised to find these three outfits that were both cost effective and fabulous. And not in the plus size section either.
Button Front Shift Dress – $39
This dress is perfect for a sunny weekend. Made from a soft woven fabric, this style features a button front, short sleeves and front pockets. The pleats at the waist front and back give me a nice curvy shape. For those of you who have a big bust this dress is quite generous with the sizing. I opted to wear a black singlet top underneath moreso for modesty in case a button popped.
Since purchasing this dress six weeks ago I have worn it at least once a week and I love it.
Strip Swing Dress – $29
I’m wearing a size 18 which also has generous sizing. It’s one of those dresses that you can pop on and your outfit doesn’t need any accessorising. Perfect to wear out for lunch or even at home.
This dress doesn’t seem to be available online but I’ve seen it for sale in stores still.
Strip Tube Skirt ~ $20
Another one of my favourite go to outfits is a tube skirt. The elastic waist holds in the tummy area and the stretch material allows plenty of movement. With the warmer weather upon us I like to wear a loose tee and keep it pretty casual. Being a true Queenslander living in the tropics I tend to wear my Havianas most days. All of my amazing shoes from my city life in Melbourne come out of storage in Winter or for special occasions.
This style can easily be glammed up with heels and a blouse.
