Since becoming a mum, and getting older (and lazier) my body shape has altered in ways that I'm not necessarily that thrilled about.
I'm not the show it to the world type who would happily share my muffin top, I prefer to downplay and cover up but online shopping for me has always been hit and miss. If I don't look like the model in the picture, how do I know if the clothing item is going to flatter or enhance the size of my butt and thighs?
Finding Birdsnest was a moment of joy! Every item they sell lists the body shape it is suited to. You can also search by body shape, and have listed each item that will suit a gal with Big Boobs or a Voluptuous Bottom. (They also have a pregnant search).
Actually, their search options are pretty awesome - you can also search by occasion, colour or personality, and they have some styled outfit suggestions for those of us who aren't so great at the ensemble. I can't save their outfit suggestions, so I'm going to take the liberty of playing with Polyvore to give you an example:
This styled outfit is named Elegant Crush.
Here's a little vest I bought last week, which is listed as being suitable for those with Big Boobs, Voluptuous Bottom, Big Hips or pregnant.
Plus there are loads more items on my wishlist, like this Anise tunic:
We are on the lookout for more mummies willing to give fashion advice and outfit suggestions. If you can help, email me!
