You may have had your fill of my casual looks lately, so I thought I’d hit you HARD with this sexy holiday special.
A few months ago I saw the super stylish Sasha (shown below) of the blog Flaws of Couture feature this super sexy strappy thing I had never seen before. It stopped me dead in my tracks.
I read her blog and discovered that it was called a “harness bra” and fell in love. They’re hand made by plus size fashion blogger @_classycurves_ from Germany who sells them under the brand @harnessbra_love on Instagram and offers international shipping.
She asked me what size bra I wore, and that was it – she was off to custom make mine. It was only $28 US + $3 shipping.
It arrived quickly and the fit was perfect. It’s actually two separate pieces, but like Sasha, I like the effect of wearing both. It goes around your torso, cups the outline of your breasts, and the other piece goes around your neck and under your breasts. Easy to figure out. And fun to style with all kinds of things, like the Martini Mermaid dress I chose for this look.
The Martini Mermaid dress is a new style that arrived at SexyPlus Clothing for the holiday season. It’s available in black or red, for $129 CDA. Unfortunately it only comes in sizes 12/14 to 18/20, and I’m wearing the 14/16.
It’s tight but that’s how this vintage Jessica Rabbit-esque dress is supposed to fit. Tight like a glove. If you wear this size, I suggest you grab one because it will make you feel like a movie star indeed, cartoon or not.
The off-shoulder sweetheart neckline includes a wired bust to keep its shape, and the back features a sexy low scoop. I’m not wearing a bra so the harness bra helped to provide a bit of support, but to be honest I was all about celebrating the natural sexy jiggle of my bosom.
The extended fishtail design just brings all the drama my introvert personality keeps in a bottle, and significantly creates an hourglass silhouette.
I honestly felt like a sculpture in it. And paired with the harness bra, well, you can see what I’m talking about right?
This is a classic all-season dress, but for my holiday feature and to provide a bit of coverage and evening glam, I paired it with my amazing new stole by FOC Details.
It’s oversized and soft and luxurious. There are so many ways to wear this piece I know I will get my mileage out of it and ladies, it’s so worth the modest $55 spend.
Add a sassy clutch, some party pumps and you’re all set.
And despite the fact that I’m a Goddess in this outfit, I still freeze like a human, ha!
Happy Holidays to you, my awesome readers. Thank you so much for your support in 2015. I love you and I hope to inspire you in 2016 and beyond.
