I remember as a young teen, scouring the pages of Shout! and Bliss, and as I got older, moving onto Glamour for my glossy magazine fix. Every once in a while, there would be the token 'curvy fashion' article, usually using brands who didn't actually stock above a 16 - but this was the late 90s, early 00s, and things were different then.
I learnt the 'rules' off by heart, and tried my best to follow them.
It's taken another 15 years to 'unlearn' these rules, and one of the last ones was the 'those blessed with a bust should always wear a v-neck'.
I've now started to rebel against this rule with vengeance:
Or this Floral / Geoprint mix dress.
A floral dress with a little bit of a frill for extra cute!
And my favourite, my shirt with added bow tie - because bow-ties are cool!
The team at Simply Be have looked at a number of these rules, and how you can break them!
Much love my lovelies,
