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…

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…

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…

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.

Tall: The Drape Coat…

No butts about it

By | Outfit Inspiration, Positive Body image | One Comment

  While I personally think, without ever having seen most of you, that you’re all gorgeous and you should all love every part of your body, I know from personal experience that putting those thoughts into action is a lot harder than we think. All we can really do is celebrate the parts of our body that we love while disguising the parts that we’re not too happy about so we can be our most confident self. In theory our bottom is just the cushioning we sit on when staring at our computer screen all day long, but when it comes…

Why we’re against using Photoshop in our store

By | Positive Body image | No Comments

  When I first set out to start Sizeable a couple of years ago one of the first things on my hit list was Photoshop. It is one of those things that is completely unavoidable in our world today. It seems that we can’t go an hour without yet another brand being embroiled in a stupid Photoshop scandal where they are so over-zealous that they practically remove limbs. The latest one to cross my radar – Victoria’s Secret Photoshopping the butt cheeks off their angels in their cheeky-butt underpants – made me roll my eyes so hard I thought they’d never pop back…

A few thoughts on positive body image from somebody who is struggling with it

By | Positive Body image | No Comments

You would probably think that somebody who started a website like this and tries to champion body acceptance among women would be instilled with an insane amount of body confidence, but the reality couldn’t be farther from the truth. Like most women I have experienced moments where I’ve hated practically every part of my body – from my nose to my toes nothing made me happy. Sometimes these thoughts are entirely my own creation, a side effect of catching my reflection from an unflattering angle, but sometimes they’re echoes of cruel comments other people have made that have stuck with me…
