After having two children back to back I haven’t made the time for myself to get to the gym. I find myself making tons of excuses instead of making time. I’ve lost the baby weight thanks to nursing, but I still have to lose my baby weight.
Shopping for clothes is never fun for me because I feel like nothing fits right or isn’t available in my size. My size, what really is my size? It varies, from company to company, another reason shopping for clothes is never fun. Some brands make me feel awesome, others make me want to eat a pint of ice cream.
It feels like all the hip and cool clothing companies make clothes only for the model types. Major turn off for thick Mama’s like me. We want to look hip and cool too. So when I find a brand that understands me, that wants to make me look and feel good, I want to shout it out and tell the world. Cable and Gauge is one of those brands.
I’ve seen their clothes in stores before. I will admit though that I never thought they were one of those brands. I figured I had nothing to lose by checking out their line and sizing them up. I was delighted to see that they carry a range of sizes from Small to Extra Large.
The simplest item for me to order is always a dress. They lend to the most play and are a good way for me to gauge if the brand will be the one for me. Besides being thick, I’ve got big boobs. Tops don’t fit right because of it, even on dresses, and we can forget about most button front items. I ordered Faux Wrap Dress in Emerald and Calypso Blue. Why the same dress? Because it seems like this was going to be a major hit, and when I find a hit, I make the most of it.
The faux wrap dress features wide shoulder straps. Uber important because I MUST wear a bra and most of them have wide straps. The wide straps of the dress totally covered my bra without even a hint of it showing. As for the boob coverage, total HIT! They fit perfectly into the top of the dress with no overflow. The flowing skirt helps to hide the unwanted bulge perfectly and even helps to flatter my curves. Be sure to check out my sexy Mama pose down below!
The material is soft, even Papa noticed, and has the perfect amount of stretch. I enjoyed seeing the dress compliment me, hugging my body where it needed it and outlining my curves to perfection. It is made of 97% Viscose and 3% Spandex. A win-win and perfect blend.
The washing instructions are simple and easy. All you have to do is machine wash the dress with cold water on a gentle cycle, with like colors. Do not use bleach, unless its color safe. Reshape and dry flat to maintain its beautiful shape. Cool iron if necessary or have it dry cleaned! I found that using a wrinkle-release spray worked beautifully.
Normally it’s priced at $42.00 but it’s now on sale for 25% off at just $31.50. Cable and Gauge runs some really awesome sales, and sometimes you can even find free shipping deals.
