The Perfect Plus Size Shirts, that Fit like a Glove and have a Feminine Silhouette ...
AMANDA FINN on a great fashion label for the plus-size generation which makes it much easier to live out the adage (slightly modernised) "if the dress fits, wear it" ...
It's been a long winter, but there's been a fashion rainbow appear in my life - as I've recently happened upon a very accommodating Sydney fashion label which every bigger girl like me is sure to love… the trans-seasonal dresses and shirts produced by Ollie & Max who sell women’s casual shirts, dresses, hats, scarves, t-shirts, belts and leggings size 18-24.
Their casual shirt is an adaptable sensation. Longer than the average shirt, tailored on top and loose around the hips, they suit any shape and size. With a little extra room for arms and busts, and a smooth skimming of the waist, they cover my bottom whilst giving me a feminine silhouette. The beautiful classic fabrics in blue, black, white, red or pink remind me of shirts I see in Hamptons pictures or in a ‘girl next door’ type lifestyle. But they are in my size, with no fussy prints or details in sight, no garish overflowing of unnecessary fabric. Just a tailored, classic comfortable shirt to fit my voluptuous shape.
What appeals to me about Ollie & Max is that they cater for real women. They have listened to bigger women who need extra room but they don’t hide our shape, instead they embrace it. They have added a little extra room in the upper arm, some in the bust, a little less flare in the hip (so that we don’t look pregnant), which has resulted in a shirt I can’t get enough of. I now have three, and will soon be onto my fourth.
I want a sophisticated style that can be worn every day. I want a style that can be teamed with my existing wardrobe, that I can throw in the wash, that doesn’t need much ironing, that can come with me on holidays, that I can dress up from day to night. And that’s what Ollie & Max deliver. In the quality and cut stakes, here is a label with great tailoring and timeless styles, that best of all delivers a shirt at an affordable price- $65 for a shirt that can be worn all year round is fantastic value.
They also have a fabulous dress range, that is wonderful for work or spending time with the kids on the weekend. The same principles apply, ease of wear and care, and I have teamed them in winter with long tops and leggings, and in summer I will wear them with sandals, thongs (dare I say it!) and take them on holidays.
Ollie & Max has their own range of t-shirts and dresses in soft Organic cotton which they have sourced from Queensland. They look fantastic with a jacket or own their own, and come in a classic mix and match palette of grey, black and white. They fit like a glove and are so comfortable that I feel like am secretly walking down the street in my tracksuit.
The other important thing I like about Ollie & Max is their commitment to others. They have a focus on ethical manufacturing, whereby factories pay workers fairly, and they are intending to setup a support network for the community of their workers by providing funding for health, schooling and housing.
In my busy life I love that I now have a reliable one stop shop for my clothing. A haven amongst the choices that usually don’t deliver on fit and quality, I have Ollie & Max which live up to their reputation. They deliver worldwide from their lovely website, and when you receive your beautifully wrapped package your love affair will begin too.
