Can Plus Size Dolls Wear Shorts? Lollysticks Debunks

Can plus size dolls wear shorts

Are you a plus size doll nervous about wearing shorts & bright colors this season? Well, let me help you out. One of the reasons that I love blogging is because I get the opportunity to debunk some common myths and misconceptions about what plus size women can and cannot wear. By showcasing these styles on myself, my hope is that you will see that these “rules” have really no basis and are not to be followed. Of course, we all want our clothes to flatter our bodies but that never means that you have be excluded from trends or styles completely.

There are several things that stuck with me for a very long time that I just did not wear. The first is about wearing shorts. I’ve always had this notion that shorts makes you look bigger especially if you are bottom heavy. I wonder where I got that from? (perharps media) So of course, I stayed away from wearing shorts until I started blogging. And I know that like me, many women stay away from certain things such as bright colors, prints and even whole garments like shorts and dresses because of what they’ve been told will not flatter them. I’m here to tell you, not so!

So here I am , size 16, wearing shorts made out of Ankara in the  middle of downtown  North Carolina. All I felt was confident, stylish and comfortable in my own skin. I challenge you to step out of your comfort zones and try something that you would not normally wear. I promise you the fear of it is all in your head and that you will realize that there was no reason to stay away from it in the first place. Live this Summer liberated, colorful and free!

Bio: My name is Lola aka lollysticks and I am a plus size fashion blogger from Nigeria based in the states. I am also the co- Founder of Kairosshoppers, an online market place & destination for fashion forward individual. I have been a curvy girl all my life but that has never stopped my longing to be stylish and trendy. While it has sometimes been difficult, I have learned throughout the years how to dress my frame in the most flattering ways possible. I definitely live by the saying “Dress to fit your body” however that doesn’t mean that you can’t take current fashion and make them work for you. I saw a gap in the market many years ago that plus size dolls, weren’t been celebrated neither was the fashion industry paying attention to the need to create flattering clothing for us. So in order to show that, I decided to start my blog as well as design with the catch phrase “lollysticks in partnership with my business kairosshoppers” My mission and my goal was simple – to show that curvy women can be just as stylish and fabulous as everyone else. Since my debut, of, I have being featured in some publications such as Huffman Post, Bellanaijaweddings. Etc. I look forward to many more features and publications.
