It’s obvious, that those people with more weight on need larger pants, T-shirts that are made for their weight or jackets that fit their larger size. But apparently it’s not that obvious, at least to many fashion companies out there (and I’m not even talking about the luxury ones, but the concerns like H&M & co.) that people who wear plus size clothes maybe also need shoes or boots that have a wider fit. Maybe the lucky ones of us, haven’t got their additional kilos on their legs too. Well, I’m not one of those. While many shoes fit normally or are a bit tight, boots, or even knee high boots are just impossible to fit in. But should that really come as a surprise? Of course my legs are larger too, when the rest of my body is larger (no rocket science needed here ???? ). But I’m definitely not the only one! A friend of mine that loves to go riding, has to settle for ankle-boots and socks that go to her knees. But as one can guess, this solution isn’t as near supporting as a strong boot.
While we really made a great progress when it comes to plus-size fashion, there are more and more possibilities on the market that allow you to go further then the shirt-pants-cardigan combination, there is still a super big step to make in the shoe sector. But since I love to experiment with fashion, I discovered the British online shop New Look some time ago. Of course their pieces aren’t made for eternity, but are great to try something new and last normally for at least two seasons. (They also deliver faster than H&M). And surprise, surprise, they also have boots with a larger fit. They fit so well, that I even bought a pair that goes beyond the knees and I love them! So this is a great tip for every girl and woman out there, who isn’t the “normal” fit and still doesn’t want to miss on anything!
