SUMMER DRESS EDIT FOR MUMS WITH TUMS

I love summer. I love the heat, the alfresco dining, the picnics, the weddings…just the general feeling of happiness you notice in everyone. I love summer fashion too. BUT, with more flesh on show,  it’s easy to think there’s no place for you in a gorgeous summer dress if the body you are about to reveal isn’t ‘perfection’. RUBBISH ALERT!!  Mums with tums can rock it too, which is why I’ve pulled together the ultimate summer dress edit for lovely lady lumps.

You see, it’s not  about hiding your body away for 3 months of the year under shapeless moomoos. It’s about having a seat at the style table too and rocking summer dresses that flatter you, mum tum or no mum tum.

Look out for pleating, draping, belts and tent silhouettes, dresses you can slip on, without faffing with control panels or uncomfortable shape wear. Seriously, who wants to wear layers of uncomfortable shape wear in the summer heat?

STYLE TIPS

  • The British summer is notoriously temperamental, don’t be afraid to play with layers and rock your summer dress over a t-shirt 90s style.
  • A bit of shimmer is your best friend and will really compliment the look, sweep some highlighter powder across your collar bone, shoulders and shins for a bit of mama glow.
  • Show off the body zones you love, like shoulders, legs, arms – your beautiful face and make those the focal point
  • Be bold with pattern and colour, print is particularly great for making a strong style statement
  • Test out wide belts to define your silhouette, there’s a huge trend this year for oversized laced up ones which look super cool over tops too.
  • Dresses and trousers are everything – just saying!

  1. You are stunning and whatever my size, my mum tum is always there. I adore my Spanx Skorts which are short/skirts to go under items especially when I’m shooting/filming. That dress is gorgeous. I’m def a dress person over jeans/trousers. xx
