Three Stylish Ways to Wear Culottes

By | Bloggers we love, Outfit Inspiration, Positive Body image, Sizeable news, Sizing & Measurements | No Comments

Culottes are my go-to style of pants this Winter. I love the way they sit, the unique patterns and fabrics they come in, and how they feel. Like them too? Well this season, culottes are being worn everywhere, not to mention being photographed everywhere and posted on social media. They are the ‘it’ pant of the season, so if there wasn’t ever a better time to invest in a pair, now’s the perfect opportunity. Sizeable stock a gorgeous pair of Keepsake The Label Bright Side Culottes featuring an exclusive basket weave print and large pleats at the front. Here’s my top three ways to…

Weight loss

Changing the conversation around weight loss

By | Positive Body image | No Comments

Last year when I noticed that I had gained enough weight to push me up two dress sizes, the thing that was most devastating was how much it affected my self esteem. In the space of about two minutes I had gone from being totally content with the soft state of my body to disgusted at myself for letting it change in such a short space of time and focussed solely on weight loss. Despite my war cries about body positivity and loving all your curves, edges and squiggles, I had accidentally become attached to the idea of my ideal weight. It…

5 Wardrobe items every woman should own by the time they’re 30

By | Outfit Inspiration | No Comments

With Sizeable’s 3rd birthday slipping past me this May and my slightly older friends starting the avalanche of 30th birthdays that will continue for the next couple of years (don’t worry y’all, mine isn’t until next year!), I’ve been thinking a lot lately about growing up. Mostly, I’ve been thinking about how my wardrobe needs to evolve to keep up with my age, because more often than not I find myself feeling like I’m dressed like a child. And yes, I know that’s what bright colours and sneakers with everything will do for a person, but sometimes I look at people…

Colour Crash Course: Winter White

By | Bloggers we love, Outfit Inspiration, Positive Body image, Sizeable news, Sizing & Measurements | No Comments

Winter fashion can often be thought of as gloomy, dark and uninteresting… However Winter white is a stylish way of brightening up your wardrobe. Sizeable has a wonderful range of Winter white clothing with various chic designs and prints. Here’s my roundup of my favourite Winter white outfits.

Our body positivity mission

By | Positive Body image, Sizeable news | No Comments

Ever since Sizeable’s inception back in 2014, I always wanted to promote body positivity by showing a range of different body shapes. I found it difficult when I wanted to condense it down to just 5 sections because despite their similarities, every body is completely different. I was constantly getting emails from people saying that they loved the idea but they didn’t feel represented. Sometimes this was totally valid, such as my potential plus size customers who I was never able to add the site, but other times it would be because my model’s measurements were off by centimetres compared to…

The new direction for Sizeable in 2017

By | Sizeable news | No Comments

When I started Sizeable 3 years ago I assumed it was going to be a pretty straight forward online store with a few extra models. I thought I would sell some clothes, make some money and maybe be able to expand my offering within a year. Well, it turns out it wasn’t that easy. Sure I sold some clothes, and made a little bit of money (although nothing that could be misconstrued as a profit – in fact I’m still getting myself out of debt from my over enthusiastic spending… oops!), but my vision for expansion was always just beyond my fingertips….

Finding The Perfect Winter Coat

By | Bloggers we love, Outfit Inspiration, Positive Body image, Sizeable news, Sizing & Measurements | No Comments

Finding the perfect Winter coat can often prove a challenge. Here’s a roundup of some of my favourite Winter coats for different body types this season. Curvy: The Bomber Jacket The bomber jacket is a wardrobe staple for most fashionistas, and is a must have. Sitting nicely on the waist, this jacket highlights one’s curves and silhouette beautifully. I love this polka dot piece from Sizeableau. Paired with black jeans and leather ankle boots, this timeless garment is well worth the buy, and will add volumes of chic and a street style vibe to otherwise everyday outfits. Tall: The Drape Coat…

Flower crown fun

By | Sizeable news | No Comments

  When we are organising our photoshoots we’re always looking for fun new ways to spice them up, whether that’s bringing in new photographers to take photos outside of the studio or approaching other brands for collaborations. For our latest photoshoot we commissioned a couple of gorgeous fresh flower crowns that looked amazing (and which I wore pretty much the entire day when they weren’t on our models because they were so beautiful!) and we’ll be sharing some of these pictures on social media over the coming weeks. The crowns were created by an amazing up and coming florist based in…

The compliment conundrum

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

  This past weekend I was hanging out at my mum’s house for my sister’s birthday when my mum looked up from her knitting to say, “You’re looking very skinny at the moment.” At first I did the usual female thing and deflect the compliment, explaining that it was a trick of the pants, an optical illusion.Then after a while I started to wonder why that was the go-to compliment for women these days and what it really meant. Firstly, I feel like there’s some sort of passive-aggressive undertone to that sort of comment, like they’re really saying “Usually you…
