" it's made me realise that 'flattering' really isn't in my fashion vocabulary". But you'd never be able to sell from the below picture of my behind, right? ehum.
I'm getting a bit repetitive, aren't I? Obviously these Bohemian Traders pants are much adored - I wear them all the time. I've got 2 pairs in Khaki, truth be told. The washing cycle takes a pretty long time round here and 2 week turn around pushes the friendship just a little too far.
I've had a few enquiries about how the Drop Crotch looks from behind. Here is my bum. You're welcome.
I've spent the last few weeks preparing for the Bohemian Traders SS16 collection which has prompted me to think about what types of garments we're designing and it's made me realise that 'flattering' really isn't on high rotation in fashion vocabulary. I always consider the cut and fall of a garment - cut is ALWAYS important but I think clothes should be easy wearing before they are 'slimming'.
I'm not sure why, flattering is just not something I often consider when dressing myself. Since becoming a mum and carrying 3 kids and 15 extra kilos everywhere I go, I seldom think about how big or small i look.
I just need easy, comfortable and practical clothing. My main concerns are
1. Does this cling to my fat?
2. Can I load 3 kids in and out of the car without disgracing myself?
3. Will you see the stains from my lunch once I spill it down my shirt
4. Do I feel good in this?

I'd love to know what you're main concerns are when shopping for new clothing. Are you interested in whether your bum looks big in your jeans?
