When it comes to finding plus size festival fashion, choices can be a bit limited. I could spend hours scrolling through the Coachella hashtag marvelling at all of the amazing outfits but when it comes to finding something that would fit me, a quick browse of my favourite stores would leave me feeling disheartened and disappointed.
That was until I started shopping at Pretty Little Thing.
Over the past few years, the plus size festival range at Pretty Little Thing has grown A LOT. From very little in the way of festival wear to having a full dedicated section, plus size festival-lovers can now look just as good as everyone else.
To put the new plus PLT range to the test, I picked myself up a few outfits for a festival-inspired shoot in a local field.
Armed with glitter and flower crowns, I created two of my favourite LOOKS ever.
The first outfit I chose was designed to push me way out of my comfort zone. Although I’m becoming much more confident than I have ever been when it comes to my body, there are certain things that I can still find it hard to do at times. One of my biggest insecurities? Showing my VBO (visible belly outline).
So yeah, the first outfit I chose meant I would have my VBO out on full show in a tight pink leopard print dress. I LOVE leopard print so I felt as though it would help when it came to facing my VBO insecurities and I was definitely right. The dress was so so comfortable and I found that even though I was prancing around in a field taking photos, I didn’t have to readjust it once.
To pair with the leopard print dress, I chose a matching pink leopard print long length kimono. I love co-ords, so it was an obvious choice when looking through the festival outfits section on the website. I’m in love with the Kimono and love that I can wear it as part of another outfit, minimising space when packing for a festival! I’m thinking of pairing it with a body and some denim shorts.
My second outfit was very me. A bright yellow maxi dress, chunky patent boots and a flower crown is a vibe I can totally get behind, whether I’m at a festival or not.
Although the dress was a little bit big when it came to my chest area, I was able to pin it in a way that stayed put throughout the entire shoot. Other than that, the outfit was absolutely perfect and definitely something I would be packing in my festival suitcase.
My favourite thing, I’m not going to lie, is the high thigh split that made me feel much sexier than I normally do. After that, the next best thing was the INCREDIBLE boots. I mean, how perfect are they?
Overall I am SO SO thankful for Pretty Little Thing putting together a festival range that also caters to a plus size audience. For years I put off going to a festival because I didn’t think I’d fit in without a full-on festival outfit to wear, but now it’s a thing of the past! Roll on the first festival of the season!
