Hi, I'm Natalie...
I am 5'2 and a size 18, which means I am petite AND plus size. Those two sizing terms might seem like polar opposites, but full figures come in a variety of shapes and sizes—one of those being short! As a petite plus size fashionista, it has been extremely difficult to fit into fashion and find clothing made for my body. But I'm here to share my petite plus style tips with you and to show the world that short, plus size women belong in fashion!

When I saw that Kelly Rowland has a collab with Fabletics, I was really interested in what the line would look like. I expected it to be versatile, like Kelly herself, which I love because while I may not be Kelly Rowland, I like to think of myself as versatile, too. I love to dance, do yoga, lift weights, and chill in cute workout gear.

 I instantly fell in love with the “Rhythm” set from the collection! I loved the mesh, skin tone wraparound on both the pants and the bra, as well as the rich color. And it just so happens that I found the perfect pair of pants from the collection, the High Waisted Statement Powerhold Capri. The reason I say “pants” instead of “pair” is because this Valetta Medium Support Sports Bra was not made for plus size women! The arm section of the bra is like a plunging V, so any arm fat or boob spillage will be seen. If you’re like me, that doesn’t scare you from wearing the cute bra, but I do know many women who would stay far away from this. And let’s also keep this in mind: I’m a “barely” C cup.... and my boobs were definitely spilling out when I ran. It’s my responsibility to tell you ladies these critical sizing facts. But now that we are past that, I will tell you that these pants are incredibly comfortable, sexy, sleek, and practical for any kind of physical activity. They are not see through and the material is rather thick. I love the way they feel on my body!

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size XXL in the Rhythm Set, which is my usual size, and everything fit perfectly. However, I feel like maybe I could have sized down in the bra for more support. But as I mentioned above, the bra really isn’t for plus size women. There is no support and the construction is just awkward.
