As some of you know, I had a date on Saturday night – one I was actually really excited about.


I had just felt an instant connection with this person when we first started talking.  It’s hard to explain, especially considering the jokers I’ve dated before, but this time I just knew I had to meet him … and I knew I’d like him.


Turns out, he felt exactly the same.  Like we were meant to meet.


But here’s the thing.  The date went so well … that I actually don’t want to blog about it.  I have no idea where this will go/could go/or where I even want it to go, but I knew that when the time eventually came where I met a decent guy that made me smile as much as I’m smiling right now … I wouldn’t want to share the gory details.




So instead, here’s a photo of my date dress!




There’s a lot to be said for finding a dress that makes you feel good.  It’s not fancy, it was in the sale so it didn’t break the bank and there certainly wasn’t much flesh on show … but I think even the fact I’d bought something new for a date for once made me feel special.


As a plus size woman, it’s not very easy find finding clothes that make you feel sexy.  I never want to hide what I have – on the contrary, I want to accentuate my curves … show them off.  I’m proud of my body and as I said here, I never apologise for them.  This dress fit the bill perfectly.



And it turns out, he liked what he saw.  We’re going out again on Saturday 🙂

  1. You look great Kate. Glad the date went well 🙂

    I’m a size 20/22 and I have an absolute hate/hate relationship with dresses, they fit me like a glove. Stick out in 5 places :-/ Doesn’t help being a shortarse who can only wear shoes as high as flipflops. Hubby said he’s buying me a dress for his sister’s 50th at the end of the month. I’m terrified 🙁

    1. Thank you! Finding nice plus size clothes is a nightmare – I know that only too well. But … good underwear is a must, having a ‘take me as I am’ is also a must and there will be a dress out there that will be perfect for you. Promise x

  2. You look amazeballs. Where us your dress from? Totally made up for you that your date went so well. not surprised you’ve secured a second date as you’re smashing it. x
