(I’m searching for the perfect fall ensemble for my model for the event.)

I was contacted by Nicole, store manager of Lord & Taylor, to talk about their new and improved Plus-Size section including brands from Jessica Simpson, Calvin Klein, and Michel Kors, just to name a few.

This was Lord & Taylor’s first blogger meet and greet in-store. I decided to get two models and style them live. I also was able to style myself from head to toe in L&T’s plus section.

Here’s my before and after photo. I thought I’d add my own personal one to the mix. Mine may not seem to fit the usual before/after photos that you’re used to on the net. The ones labeled “transformation” “body goals” or “fitspiration”. Mine goes from smaller to bigger. Less weight to more weight. Eating Disorders to recovering from Eating Disorders. The first photo wasn’t even taken at my lowest weight. When I’d gotten down to 146 by the worst kind of ways possible, I hadn’t taken photos. To me, if I wasn’t 130 pounds then I was a slob who hadn’t deserved to be seen. I found this photo last night. Tears welled. It reminded me of my toxic past. I was 18 years old and in college. A closed mouth smile because I hated my teeth. I thought my stomach was the biggest, so I sucked it in, as tightly as I could. My hands are covering my wide hip. I read somewhere that posing like this slimmed the hips in photos. I gravitated towards dark jeans and black pants. Again. It was slimming. I wouldn’t be caught dead in the outfit on the right. Cellulite in public! *Gasps* What would other people think? Thirteen years later and over a hundred pounds more. I’m wearing things that magazines told me not to. I’m skipping body shapers. I’m not always sucking it in. I am nourishing my body. I’m being good to my body. I’m no longer asking, “what will other people think”. What’s some interesting (or downright ridiculous) advice that you were given or read about dressing for your body type? When you dress do you find yourself asking, “what will other people think?” Any body type is welcome to answer.
