I’m 31. I’m short and round. I’ve been in plus size clothes since middle school and I haven’t always been happy with myself. I try to dress well, but sometimes I struggle. The last few years, I wore scrubs to work, and lived in casual clothes otherwise. I enjoy dressing up, and am taking the opportunity to do it more.
I’m pretty low maintenance. I don’t blow dry my hair often, and I don’t like to wear a lot of makeup. I’m just now learning how important a great accessory is; and while I hate them, I’m grateful for Spanx.
I don’t pretend that I’m skinny, but I’m tired of dressing to hide/flatter. I’m trying bright colors, new cuts and different shops. With the confidence I’ve gained thanks to my boyfriend D, I’m no longer willing to just throw on anything. I want to look good, because it makes me feel good.
