Coat: Dorothy Perkins

I've always had fat legs. Even when I was a size 10, I had calves too chubby to fit into boots. I've always pined for some black winter boots but just accepted that it wasn't to be. Then Fashion World sent me these amazing quilted Legroom boots. Hoorah!
I chose the EEE fitting as I figured this might give some more room around the calf. When I pulled them on, I was horrified to discover that not even extra-wide, plus-size boots would zip over my calves! Luckily, this design has a secondary zip and buckle on the other side, so I loosened that and finally had my chubby calves encased in boots. Yay!
It's a funny sensation, as my calves feel quite tight but my feet are swimming around in the extra-wide boot. They're also quite heavy, but it didn't take me long to get used to. Despite this, my boots are very comfortable and I'm over the moon that I have a pair of boots to wear in winter that actually fit my calves!

  2. I have the opposite problem with boots: by no means am I a skinny girl, but when I was hunting for long boots this winter I found they were all super baggy and looked ridiculous. It's so annoying trying to find the perfect fit so I feel your pain! xx

  4. I have the same problem, wellies are the worst! I did find a great pair of regular boots in New Look just before Christmas though, not only do they fit me, they're also waterproof, so great for all this horrid weather we've been having!

    1. Wellies are so annoying! (Totally just typed that as "willies" haha!). Primark do ankle-length wellies, which are perfect!
