Model or Me: Plus Size Overalls

March 23 2016 | CeCe Olisa

Model or Me is not a competition. 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. 

Now on to today’s post where you get to vote if you like it on the model or on me!

Torrid Overall Jean – Black Wash

Torrid Overall

Here are the overalls on the model

My main concern with overalls is how they’ll fit across my tummy. So, I decided to over mine two sizes larger than my pant size. I knew that I could just tighten the straps and customize the fit across my bust.

I was very surprised by how soft the denim is on these, they feel amazing!

I have nothing bad to say about these, I’m pretty much in love. I’ve worn them while running errands and I paired them with heels for a dinner the other night.

    I like them better on you for 2 reasons:

    1) I’m shaped more like you than the model, so your pic does a great job of showing me what the outfit might look like on me (which is the point, isn’t it?)

    and

    2) Your version of the outfit is designed better. I don’t like the sandals and white/gray shirt with the overalls that the model is sporting, and her bracelet doesn’t work with this outfit. Your outfit really works! The t-shirt provides contrast and still goes with the overalls, and your tennis shoes & chunky watch match the level of casualness in the outfit. (Mixing dressy and casual can work, but if that’s what the model is going for, a bracelet and a pair of shoes really don’t balance overalls and a baseball shirt.)

    Well done, you!

    I love your version better! I hate those sandals she’s wearing in the photo, they do nothing to help sell the overalls – your sneakers look great! This is a great outfit on you! I would love to see them styled with heels for dinner out because it’s not something I can imagine wearing myself. 🙂

    Well, look at you in your cutey-cute overalls looking just as cute as the model! I never considered myself an overalls gal…though it’s just occurring to me that I’ve quite possibly never even tried. You’ve inspired me to at least give them a try!

    CeCe, I’m going to have to go with you…(not that that is a bad thing) 🙂 You are taking a journey and helping the rest of us along the way. I never would have had the courage to buy overalls – I’m rather pear shaped and I don’t want to look “dumpy” but girl, you give me hope and faith that we can wear cute clothes, sexy clothes, casual clothes – without fear!!! I love you – I love your blog and your videos and as far as model or you – you – all the way! <3

    I love it on you and I would do the same and wear a stripe shirt. And I think it looks great I see no problem about the area you worry about. That’s a good shopping date outfit. I look like a kid in overalls and creepy men follow lol . I wear the shorts overalls one pair I love from anthropologie (yes Ik I get by with some stuff in that store lol ) though they need new straps I just find ways to still wear it lol

    I think the difference is the striped shirt — you styled your look so much better than the catalogue. They should hire you! I don’t normally like overalls, but you’re killing the look.

    The overalls look nice on both of you, but I like them on the model better. And on a side note, no one has a perfect body 🙂

    I definitely pick you. You put together clothes that look fun and want me to get a pair. Looking at the model i dont think I’d even want to try them or look at the picture twice as it makes me feel im too short and round. So now im gonna go see if i can find a pair! 🙌 They look comfortable… 👍

    OK, so the Model makes me feel like I could not wear overalls unless I am Tall, have a flat stomach, and she doesn’t even LOOK HAPPY!….Now, when I see you, I feel you are OUTSTANDING! I am definitely going to try overalls again! the only touch I would add to mine is a red bandana pulled through one side hip belt loop, hanging down and looking all sassy! Or a Bandanna around my neck,,,,But I am from Texas….lol

    CeCe, loved the overalls on you. Thanks for the heads up on ordering in a larger size to minimize the belly. The overalls looked so cute on you.

    If it’s not a competition, why ask who the outfit looks best on? Perhaps a better way to illustrate that clothes can look great on different bodies is to rename the post “Model AND Me” (without the question mark).
    Also, to say that the model has “a perfect figure” implies that you feel that your figure is not perfect which is simply not true (and doesn’t sound very body positive). Bodies weren’t meant to look the same so all figures are perfect… perfect for us.

    Just my friendly 2 cents. I think you rock. 🙂
