Hello my lovelies!
Shirts. On women. Plump women!
I’ve been in training with shirts this summer.
Over the years I felt that I looked too matronly in shirts, a bit sergeant majorish in them. Top half issues.
So 2022 is designated as my last ditch attempt to see if I can get them to work for me.
I think the trickery may be in the fabric, both the texture and the colour.
Finding the right formula to allow larger busted ladies to look good in the masculine shirt shape can be a challenge, but I think I’ve found a winning formula!
Taadaah, I give you …
The Pout’s Formula for Shirts on Larger Ladies
1. Shirts in finer fabrics drape well and look less matronly
A fine slinky fabric or a cotton lawn drapes well over the larger torso, as seen with this lawn shirt from @marksandspencer.
2. Then chose a pretty feminine colour or print to negate any hint of masculinity that a shirt brings to the female form.
And that’s it. Simples.
Yup, I think I’ve sussed this shirt wearing malarkey!
And finally I’m wearing my 👚 shirt with pride!
Other shirts I have been in training with
Light lawn jade oversized shirt. (Me, messy; him, elegant!)
Striped (and embroidered) loose shirt - I’ve worn this many times this summer.
Brown linen on a windy day
And of course, the classic white linen fitted shirt worn in many combos, but here worn with light wash blue jeans.
Do YOU wear shirts?
Do you find their masculine shape a challenge?
I’d love to hear how shirts work, or don’t work, for you in the comments below.
A la perchoine,
