“While I was jogging today I heard someone clapping , it was just my thighs cheering me on 😉 “
I remember back in the day when I was in college , plus size clothing wasn’t really a thing even internationally . Not many brands had a plus size section and the ones that did , didn’t have a lot of trendy options (Kinda like the plus size scenario in the Indian Fashion market a year or so ago ) . If that was the situation internationally , you could only imagine how bad it was for us here.
We had NOTHING !
It was either lose weight or wear kurtis and trousers to summer camps. So me being me , I would always design my clothes to my size and still stay on trend but this emptiness inside of me ( 😛 ) , of not being able to find shorts my size , always lingered.
Finally our prayers have been answered my loves and we have options for plus size shorts now available in India. But I get asked a lot by many of you girls about how one should style shorts with thick thighs and how one can avoid making it look forceful . Well , to answer all of that , I am here with 4 looks for you girls to experiment with and see what suits your body and comforts. So without further ado let’s jump right into the blog.
1. One of the most trendiest additions to last year and this year’s fashion market has been the “Longline Split T-shirts”. I call them the Amreeci Kurtas . One very cool way to wear these would be with shorts. If you are a beginner and aren’t too comfortable showing ze bootay then this look is something you should try.
Wear this on a road trip , to dance class or any place you wanna keep it casual.

2. aLL – The Plus Size Store has been revolutionary in bringing their plus size clothing to the Indian market but I always felt that their was a void that they still hadn’t filled when it came to trendy clothes. Well they finally have done the needful and here we have an entire look from the brand.
Olive is one colour that has made its mark in the fashion industry this year. Love the boho vibes that this Olive kurta from aLL exudes. Wear it as a frock or have these beautiful lace shorts sneakily hidden beneath , you are sure to have flirty , fun day out with this look !

3. Summer romancing in off shoulders and lace ! Another combo from aLL. Although I am super happy about the summer collection and it’s trendiness , this lace shorts was a tiny disappointment. It looks super pretty but there is just something about the fit that didn’t suit my body type…it was riding up the butt a lot !
These come in 3 colours..orange, blueish white and black . I only wish it fit me better.
