Body confidence and try on haul. - MissLJBeauty

Body confidence and try on haul.

Body confidence is a new thing for me. I have and probably always will struggle with being confident in my own skin. My story is my own and I have shared it with you all before. I was once a size 22/24 and I lost 7 and a half stone and got down to a size 8/10 where I stayed for a few years. 

In the last few years, I have really upped my training. I love to mountain bike and I want to be as fit as I can be for the sport I love. I sit here today between a 6 and an 8 and I am by far the fittest I have ever been. It has taken me years to accept my changing size and realise that this body is mine no matter the lumps and bumps it may have. 

Being a blogger I am lucky to go to lots of fashion posts on my site and this has helped me with my body confidence. I get to try on lots of lovely clothes and show you all how they look on me. I get to review them and try new styles I might not have picked for myself. I have found that fashion is fun no matter what size you are. It is about expressing your individuality and who you are through your clothing. I am so blessed to have the opportunity to work through my own body confidence journey with you all.  I feel lucky every day that I can do this and am able to feel confident in my own skin and it is all because of you. 

Today I have a Femme Luxe haul I need to show you. If you don't know about Femme Luxe, where have you been? They are an online fashion store that stock everything from Denim Shorts to jeans to bikinis to loungewear. They really are your one-stop shop for fashion. Oh did I mention they are super affordable too? Honestly, I love their clothes. Plus they do amazing sales and discount codes so keep your eye peeled for them. 

A bit about me if you are new here. I am a size 6/8 at the moment I am normally an 8 but I have been training a bit harder for my autumn holiday hopefully. My holidays are mountain biking so I need to be physically strong and fit for it. I am an hourglass shape. I hold my weight on my hips boobs and bum. I will tell you what size I have got so you can gauge the sizing.  These posts are always photo heavy so let's get into it.

I am a barbie girl and I live in a barbie world. I love pink and I love this Hot Pink Ruched Midi Bodycon Dress - Taylor this is a size 8. Firstly I recommend sizing down. I could easily have gone for the 6. If you like your dresses a little tighter to show off your curves then you need to size down. I am obsessed with this colour. Yes, it is a look at me colour but in all the best ways. I would wear this one for a girls night out or a romantic date night. I would team with a black blazer and black shoes and a bag. Hair down and a smokey eye look. 

These are the Blue Multi-Colour Ribbed High Waisted Flare Leg Trousers - Thea in size 8. I think these are really cute. I would wear them around the house with an oversized jumper. These are just something a bit cooler than my normal trousers. I would also wear them as going out trousers with a big heel and a little white shirt tied up. I would team with some light blue shoes and hair up in a ponytail with minimum makeup. 

Lastly, we have Charcoal Scoop Neck Sleeveless Crop Top Shirred Jogger Shorts Fleece Co-ord - Bianca size 6. I am writing this wearing this set. This is comfort at a new level. Firstly I have a large chest. I am a 28E or 30f. I have a tiny back and a large chest. This bra/crop top fits me like a dream. It even gives a bit of a lift. Let's face it us big-chested girls are always in need of a bit of a boost. The shorts are oversized and really comfy to wear. This is just a lovely lounge wear set. I also wear the bra top on its own under jumpers. This is now my go-to comfort bra. Come on ladies we all have one and this is now mine. Someone pass me a hot chocolate and I am ready for a cosy film night. 

I hope you enjoyed this little haul
