Model or Me: Eloquii Gown

This Fall, I brought “Plus Size Model or Me?” to the blog with this post.

Some of you asked: “Why make it a competition?”, “Why ask us to choose?”, “Is this even body positive?”

Here’s my answer:

As plus size women, many of us automatically think our bodies are a hindrance to wearing certain items. Big girls often feel they aren’t even in the same “league” as a smaller girl. I do think there’s some body positive affirmation that comes when you can root for the fat chick. I think it’s body positive to see that items can look just as good on a big girl with lumps as it does on a model with a perfect figure. So, these posts are just my way of leveling the playing field a bit and opening our eyes that we can wear whatever we want. The main point is comparison and seeing that different can be good, not competition.

Hope that makes sense… now, on to today’s post!

I’m going to show you an item on a model, I’m going to explain how I made my purchase (what size I chose, color, width, etc.), then I’ll show the item on me and you can decide if you like it on the model… or on me.

Eloquii Long Sleeve Petal Neckline Gown

Here’s the dress on the model.

The only long dresses I own are summer maxi’s, so I was really excited about this gown. It seemed simple enough to wear for any occasion where I want to step things up and I knew with the right accessories this dress could be super glam.

There is a long sleeved version of the dress here, but I chose the short sleeve version

  • so that I could pull it out during any warmer months too.
  • Because the long sleeved, floor length dress looked like I was trying to cover up my body
  • I think if you’re wearing a floor length gown, you should show a little skin 😉

Normally, I order maxi dresses a size larger to get some extra length, but with this one I ordered the dress in my normal dress size 18, because I didn’t want it to be baggy at all, that would kill the fun of this curve hugging dress. I just crossed my fingers that it would be long enough (I’m 5’10).

Here’s the dress on me. 

The dress was more than long enough (yay!). The only thing that’s a little awkward is how the fabric clings in the tummy area, but that’s nothing a little shapewear can’t fix. Styling the dress was super easy. I found a fur stole at the goodwill (yessss!) and the clutch and shoe combo is something I’ll probably use with other Little Black Dresses, its unexpected and fun.

    It looks beautiful and different on each of you. I prefer the “perfect imperfection” of your figure, though.
