Plus Size Fashion | Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone

Wedding season is here – and it is here in full swing. This year I decided to change things around. Instead of going with traditional silk and embroidered pieces, I wanted to create a few looks that are not heavily embellished but still have a rich and luxe look. Plus, unlike traditional Indian wedding wear that can’t be repeated frequently, I wanted to invest in something that would be multi-occasion friendly.

2017 has been my year of stepping out of my style comfort zone and taking sartorial risks. One of the main reasons why I was able to do that is because of the growing plus size fashion industry in India. Brands are finally understanding the needs of plus size women and realising that we too deserve stylish and trendy clothes. I was able to make a drastic change to my wedding season wardrobe mainly because I was lucky to find on-trend and chic Indian wear pieces.

From pretty prints to stylised silhouttes, Amydus has wide variety of tunics. While looking for something that is is both classic and at the same time statement making, this front slit, overlap tunic in deep green shade caught my fancy. It was unlike any other tunic I had seen in a while. However, as much as I loved it, I was not sure if I was ready to wear something that draws attention to my belly.

As a classic apple shape, plus size woman, I have always been very conscious of my non-flat belly. While I’ve finally made peace with the way my belly looks, I still haven’t reached the point where I am comfortable showing it.

I decided to finally take the plunge and get myself the tunic. I won’t lie - until I got the tunic in my hand I was a tad bit apprehensive and nervous about my belly showing. However, once I wore the tunic, I realised that all the nervousness and doubt was in my head. There was nothing wrong with my visible belly.
Like some women are fair skinned and other are dusky, some are tall while others are short, similarly, some women have a flat belly while others, like me, have non-flat, round belly. And that is just fine. Women come in all shapes and sizes, and so do our bellies. We should not be ashamed or asked to hide our bellies just because they are not flat or washboard abs.

The Amydus tunic turned out to be a very wise and body positive investment for me. Not only did I get a new style and silhouette to add to my wardrobe but I was finally able to let go of my inhibition and get comfortable with my non-flat, round belly showing.
