Crop It Out

I have come across quite a few plus size bloggers exclaiming how freeing it is to wear a crop top, and the fact that you are plus size should not stop you from buying one.

Me, in a crop top? Outside of my home? Never! Could I? It couldn't hurt to try, right? Isn't that what this blog is about? Trying new things and stepping outside your comfort zone? Why yes, yes it is.

So I did my research and learned that the best crop tops to wear are the ones that stop about two inches below your breast, and they are most flattering when paired with a high-waisted bottom that comes up right above your natural waist. 

I love this crop top that I am wearing from Torrid. It’s lightweight and doesn’t cling to my body. I paired the top with a high waisted skirt (also from Torrid) that features ruching to camouflage troubling areas, and a slit for added sex appeal.

I must say this was a freeing experience. Feeling the breeze hit your exposed midriff as a plus size girl is one of the best feelings in the world. Try it, and let me know how it goes. If you’ve tried it already, did you like it? Would you wear a crop top again?
