Kimono: Anna Scholz
Part two of my → #BeachBodyNotSorry series up here on the blog is a little more daring – wearing a bikini when you’re fat is still not that funny at the beach (as I had to feel by myself – people were saying rude things and I could hear it!), but I honestly loved it (except for the bad sunburn – I’m kind of still wearing my top…).
Wearing a bikini is kind of a freedom for a fat person. You’re always told to hide your imperfections, get tips on which bikini, tankini or swimsuit is best for your body type (comparing people to fruits – by the way – is something that I find totally stupid, I’m not a pear, I’m body type “human”) to make everything look thinner and smaller and not like yourself anymore. I say: your body type is none of anyone’s business and you’re absolutely allowed to wear whatever the hell you want. And if that’s a bikini: wear it. Period.
For these pictures, I covered up a little (not because I’m afraid to show you my body – you’ll see this when you look at them, but because that’s what the blog post is about! ;)) with this gorgeous dragon print kimono by → Anna Scholz. It’s on sale right now, so if you fell in love just like me – go ahead and make a bargain! And when you’re already at it: have a look at Anna’s gorgeous dresses (you can also get a → dress with the same print as this kimono!). If there’s a plus-size designer who knows how to create a perfect dress for curves, it’s her!
I already had the pleasure to meet Anna a few times (last time on Tuesday at the “Curvy” fair in Berlin) and I’m happy to say that I totally trust her – she knows what plus-size girls need, as she’s always been curvy herself. She knows how to dress curves and her clothes are always on point. Also, I love the utterly beautiful prints that she keeps choosing for her collections – I mean, look at this kimono? Isn’t it just perfect?
Of course, wearing a kimono on a hot day like this (almost 40 °C/104 °F) wasn’t the best idea, but I’d do anything for great pictures (bloggers…). :) Anyways, I’m already looking forward to a very special cooperation for fall with Anna Scholz and sheego – so stay tuned for lots of beautiful dresses! And until then, you can also have a look at my previous Anna Scholz looks → here (this is → my favorite!). ;)
