If you had said the phrase 'body con' to me a couple of months ago, I would have screwed my face up. Linked in my mind to some sort of Kim-Kardashian stereotype, I was convinced that the body con shape was best left to skinny minnies and was the kind of garment that brought on tuts and head shakes from old grannies on the street. Thanks to this incredibly flattering, classy and cute-meets-quirky two piece from 'The Kewl Shop', my mind has been changed.

Body con may have always been a celeb fave, but to be honest, it's never been my bodies best friend. Always living on the curvier side of life (mmm chocolate), the thought of something clinging to my hips has not been on the top of my sartorial list. Turns out: I just hadn't found the right body con piece for my shape.
This two-piece is literally like a really sexy version of those granny panties (Spanx?) that holds everything in place. With thick, stretchy bandage fabric, that hugs my curves and is still tight in all the right places, this is one body con piece that I truly feel confident in! Never felt more proud to have a big butt, after all, some people even get implants...(Looking at you Nicki Minaj) **Sings big booty b**ches and dances around**
I chose this two piece from 'The Kewl Shop' because it totally satisfies my constant craving for co-ords. I also think that the print, on the skirt in-particular, is very flattering, because, as we have read in every single fashion manual: vertical prints are slimming. I also love the quirky off-the-shoulder shape and the way it wraps around the bust; it's a bit like a boob job in a top!
I teamed the soft lilac colour with a baby pink bag and heels for a look that is way more girly than what I would normally go for. I could honestly see myself wearing this to a wedding. Note to friends: Please get married.
So if you're in fear of the body con, why not take a step back and look at the garment? Maybe it's just not the right one for you.
