Confession time: I’d rather stab myself in the eye than go clothes shopping these days. The main reason being that over the last 7 years my body has morphed into a different shape after each pregnancy – and JUST when I get the hang of shopping for my new shape I fall pregnant – and I have to start from scratch! Two children later and I barely have time to brush my hair so taking hours to find a new wardrobe is not going to happen. Add to that the fact that I live an hour away from the closest major shopping centre, which usually means a day out at the shops ends up falling in the ‘too hard’ pile.
Since my move to the Adelaide Hills, I find it much easier shopping for most things online – with the exception of clothing. It’s really hard to work out how certain items of clothing are going to look on different shapes and sizes. Although most online stores provide you with measurements, I am more likely to feel confident buying something if I were to see it worn on someone close to my shape and size.
Cue Sizeable. I came across Sizeable when searching for a couple of dresses to buy for the Festive Season and it’s fair to say when I came across their lovely website I did a little happy dance! If you haven’t discovered it yet – you must GET.ON.THAT. Like now. You’re welcome.
You’ll know why I am fan-girling about this online store as soon as you click onto it. Sizeable keeps things real – and simple. And that my friends is because the only way to shop at Sizeable is by shape and size. There are 5 categories – Busty, Tall, Curvy, Booty, Petite. Click on the category that best represents you and all the clothing within that category are modelled on women that are that particular shape. AHH-MAZING! Not only have they provided us with very detailed measurements, but you can see exactly how the clothing will sit on someone your shape and size.
Sizeable’s Mission: ‘To promote a positive online shopping experience by representing a more diverse range of women.’ How awesome is that!
