Bardot top, oh how I love thee, let me count the ways.I have loved this style on so many people for so long but the fitted body and my mum tum didn’t feel like a good mix until I decided to just TRY IT ON. I’m an ‘Apple’ so I’m top heavy with slim legs and very little in the hips/bum department and tempting as it is to wear baggy tops and skinny jeans (my uniform) I’ve discovered that a fitted top actually balances me out much better. Because I AM conscious of my tummy (my last c-section left me with a little pooch that *I assume* no amount of sit ups will flatten) a high waisted skirt of pair of stiff jeans are essential to hold me in and give he illusion of a waist
This is my second of this exact top (H&M of course) and I’ve been LIVING in them recently. They’re an all seasons staple as they’re almost totally covered while showing enough skin to feel Summery. Also massively flattering and chic while still feeling sexy without being in any way over exposed. Discovering the Bardot top has been like discovering the skater ‘fit and flare’ shape all over again, a life changing style moment.
