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!

MY DREAM WORKOUT SET

Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger, influencer, YouTuber, and model Natalie Craig, of Natalie in the City, reviews Fabletics' Fearless set, High-Waisted PowerHold Shine Pants, Erika Cropped Hooded Jacket, and Paige Low Impact Sports Bra.

I can't even tell you how long I have been searching for saucy looking gym gear. When I stumbled across Kelly Rowland's new line for Fabletics I saw my favorite shade of green, and then I laid eyes on this Fearless set. From the metallic leather-like side panels to the matte cropped hoodie, it was everything I had ever dreamed for when it came to an athleisure look. I love that the color of the whole look is the same, but it still boasts so much contrast with the different fabric textures. I don't know why, but I have always been drawn to monochromatic color schemes and outfits—there is just something so sharp and eye-catching about them.

Not only was the style of the outfit on point, but the sizing was absolutely perfect. I got to choose my inseam length, which was very helpful as everything usually runs very long on my 5'2 frame. And as you can see, the short inseam fits me so well. In the last post I talked about Fabletics in, I discussed how the fit of the PowerHold leggings was always a bit off for me. In the High-Waisted PowerHold Shine Pants, I ordered my usual size, which is a 1X in Fabletics, and these have to be my favorite fit yet! They weren't too tight or loose. I was also pleasantly surprised at how well the Erika Cropped Hooded Jacket fit me because it only went up to a size XXL, which is my usual size, but sometimes the XXL doesn't fit like a true plus-size 2X many places. This cropped hoodie actually runs pretty big and I think even a size 3X or 4X could comfortably wear it. For the Paige Low Impact Sports Bra I did size up to a 2X because Fabletics bras have always been a little too small and too tight, and I was actually pleased with the fit.

As you can tell, I am ecstatic about this set. So if you see me out in it at least three days a week, don't judge me!
