I love getting dressed up, and I am always looking for reasons to do so. So when a friend came into to town last week and we met up for dinner, it gave me a chance to try out my Magic Full Sweep Skirt and Boohoo Body Suit.
The skirt is the full sweep skirt from Magic. I bought mine at a local wholesale store. I will go back soon and see if I can find more to put up in my store because the day I had this on so many people were asking about it. I will make sure to post if I do get my hands on more of these. In the meantime, I did find an place online that carries other colors of it. Alight seems to carry it in three colors. You can get it in pink and yellow flowers on a black background, red and purple flowers on a green background, or red and white flowers on a black background.
These skirts are very flowey, and they definitely make you want to twirl.
As for the fit, I typically wear a 20 or 2X at both Lane Bryant and Torrid. In Magic Brand I wear a 3X, it most definitely is sized as a Juniors Plus brand. The length is obviously Maxi length, but it is definitely on the long side even for that. I am 5’8″ and I am wearing it pulled up at an empire length. If I were to try and wear it at my waist I would have been tripping over it even with the wedge heels I had on.
As you can see I have it paired with a Bardot style lace bodysuit.
This bodysuit was from Boohoo Plus, but it is unfortunately no longer available. However, they do have the Plus Jodie Lace Neck Bardot Bodysuit that is very similar in style. The fit for most of Boohoo is pretty average. They are a UK brand, so keep that in mind when ordering. But I do order a 20US or 24UK size.
I also had paired with it Isaac Mizrahi Pink Coral Peep Toe Wedges in Wide Width that I found on eBay. It looks like the seller still has them available in a few sizes too.
I have tried to incorporate several pictures of this outfit, maybe more than I would with the average outfit post, because I really wanted you to be able to see this skirt from various angles and in action. And to be honest the pictures still don’t do it justice. The fabric alone is perfection and every step you take makes this billow fabric roll around you.
