Dressing my curves with confidence

Hi Lovelies, Hope you are all well?
I LOVE MY body, yes you read that correctly I love the way I look ( I am not trying to sound vain 😜). I am plus size/curvy and for me the image perfect is in your eyes only not in what the media or what others say. I have heard so much CRAP about getting your perfect beach body in time for summer... I mean really what is a perfect summer body? I am a size 16 and for me I am so ready for the summer no matter the size of my clothes or the weight on the scales.
Over the last 2-3 years I have gained quite a bit of weight but with a lot of hard work and exercise I have kept my weight the same for nearly a year now "yay!!!"(happy dance...) I still enjoy my food but tend to exercise a lot more now and also drink lots of water too. For me, personally, diets don't work because I get very easily bored of them and I don't like having a  set routine of what to eat if you know what I mean. Eating good things in moderation is the way to go

I have always loved to wear pretty dresses especially if they are in the rockabilly style because I am a retro girl at heart but with the weight gain I haven't been 100% confident to wear dresses for a long time because of the way my body has changed with PCOS. I wore joggers/leggings all the time because they were so comfy and to be honest I just love wearing them but back to then thats all I wore at one point until one day I went out of my comfort zone  and I ordered some dresses on Lindy Bop because the retro girl at heart was calling out to me to give the dresses a try. 
Over the least few months I have got myself some lovely dresses and skirts and I actually shocked myself how lovely they looked,  including this dress from Lindy bop which fits me perfectly and also looks amazing. I have worn dresses outside so many times too and I love to get dressed up every now and again as its one of those things that help give me a confidence boost. I still love to wear leggings and joggers too from time to time because you know they are so darn comfy and they kinda feel like a hug. 

Getting these retro dresses has been a great for me and has given me the confidence to go out and wear what makeup and clothes I want because you know something everyone... if it makes you happy than thats all that matters! I will continue looking amazing in my retro vixen clothes because they make me feel good.
I know dresses aren't everyones cup of tea but I love them and I think we should all wear what we all find comfortable even if that means not everyone agreeing with you because no matter what,  people like to complain about little things and the way we want to dress is one of them. So from now on I am going to dress how I want and feel most comfortable with and in the end isn't that all that matters?
