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!

CONFIDENCE-BOOSTING BRAS AND PANTIES

Chicago Plus Size Petite Fashion Blogger Natalie Craig, of Natalie in the City, reviews Adore Me lingerie
Lately, I have been really excited about either nude-toned lingerie or bras and panties that boast bold colors like neon green. I have usually always stuck to plus size black lingerie, but I have been trying to enhance my collection of sultry bras and panties that I can wear around the house when I need an extra dose of confidence. I used to throw on lingerie here and there when I was having a rough day to shift my mood, but I have done it even more so while in quarantine because experiencing days of isolation can be extremely hard on my self esteem and anxiety. There is something about changing out of the baggy sweatpants I have been wearing all week and sliding on dressy plus size lounge wear or curve-contouring lingerie.

One of the plus size lingerie boutiques I have been shopping at most frequently is Adore Me. I absolutely love their wide selection, and their lingerie runs true to my actual size. I find that a lot of lingerie boutiques that carry plus size lingerie have weird sizing charts that usually have me wearing a G or F cup, when I am actually a C cup. But I never run into these issues while shopping at Adore Me.

To fulfill my craving for nude-colored lingerie, I found this Cinthia Unlined Lace Bra and Panty set in a really pretty brown. From time to time, I also top the look off with the Monika Plus Size Lounge Dress.
The dress is so comfortable and it looks so sexy on me, which is awesome because I could have messy hair and my Adidas pool slides on and this dress still makes me look like a bombshell...LOL.

SIZING INFO: I am wearing a size 2X in the dress, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly! I am wearing a 42C in the bra, which is my usual size, and it fits perfectly. I am wearing a size 3X in the panties, which is one size larger than my usual size, but they fit perfectly. Sometimes I size up in panties because I find that some of the lace styles have a low rise and my tummy always folds over the top of the panties.

Adore Me sent me this look to review. All opinions are my own!
