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!

LOUNGING IN STYLE


Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger, influencer, and model Natalie in the City Craig reviews Adore Me lingerie.
If this quarantine has taught me anything, it would be the importance of having lounge wear or pajamas that make you feel vibrant. Usually, when I get home from a long day, my hair goes up in a bun and I slide on the baggiest sweat pants and T-shirt I can find. These outfits usually weren’t cute, which was fine because I looked cute all day and I only wore these fits up until I went to bed. But when I started living in these outfits all day because I was working from home during this pandemic, my confidence tanked. I rarely ever felt beautiful or radiant. Instead, I felt like a lazy blob.

So earlier on during the pandemic, I started hunting for plus size lounge wear that wasn’t baggy sweats. I found this beautiful Reign Plus Set from Adore Me Lingerie, among many other new lounge wear pieces that make me feel confident. I love how dainty and sexy this set is, while also being very comfortable. I noticed very quickly that my confidence took a full 180 when I wore my new lounge wear.  

Ive been obsessed with Adore Me lately! From their lingerie to their ready to wear line, this brand has become my new favorite!

The COVID-19 pandemic is new territory for EVERYONE. We are all navigating these times as best as we can while learning new things about ourselves. It’s okay to have a hard time, be sad, feel unmotivated, and have swirling insecurities. Trust me, my anxiety, sensitivities, doubts, and insecurities have been so loud it’s hard to tune out some days. But I am trying to infuse little moments of joy into my days like going to therapy, hanging out with my parrot Rico, and Face Timing my friends. And sometimes, the littlest things like getting dressed in a cute outfit and doing my hair and makeup make a huge difference in my mood and self esteem.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 3X, which is one size larger than my usual size, and the outfit fits, but it’s a little bigger than I’d like. I ordered a 3X because the 2X was out of stock in my size and I had to have it! 

Adore Me sent me this look to review, all opinions are my own!
