There are times when Plus size shopping can be really stressful, finding something that you love can be an onerous task and if I am honest really not a fun experience. There is just so much crap out there, with some plus brands still trying to make hanky hem, dip hems, body con, and the same old peplum rubbish it feels like a constant uphill struggle. So when you find a place where you can get the same on trend, oversized, minamalist pieces that your slim pals are wearing it feels like you have hit the proverbial jackpot. Here is where Monki comes in, I cannot believe I have gone through most of my adult life not knowing about Monki clothing. Until recently, (thanks tothis excellent piece from the Debrief written by m/y girl Danie) I had no clue that I would be able to fit in any clothes in this shop. Mostly I stick to my usual haunts such as ASOS Curve, Simply Be and New Look as most of the options on the high street just don't work. Monki is a cool, laid back kinda shop with tons of really great oversized pieces that can work on plus size bodies. The tartan shirtI am wearing is in a size L and as you guys know I am a size 22/24, the fit works really well for me and the material of the shirt is so comfy that it it kinda feels like I am wearing PJ's. This is a really easy item to wear especially in winter, just throw on a pair of leggings, a denim jacket or a motto a scarf and some chunky boots and you are good to go!
