Beyond instagram and Tik Tok, I started experimenting with a new “Model and Me” review format. I show the photo of the model in the item I ordered and then share how it looks on me. One of the hardest parts about shopping online, especially in plus sizes, is that there is a lot of variation in how an item fits. I have brand name styles in sizes 22-32 that fit me right now. As someone on the larger side, there are very, very rarely models my size on websites, so it’s a total guessing game.
The goal of the series is simply to provide another piece of information to someone trying to make a decision about whether or not to buy something. Maybe it encourages someone to try a new brand or perhaps a style they couldn’t imagine on their body.
what is the series NO It’s a comparison. It’s not model VS me, or “who wore it better?” We spend enough time comparing ourselves to others, there’s no need to discuss it!

The first thing is a sweater dress eloquii. It gives me Chanel vibes with black and white, gold trim and buttons. It is available in sizes 14-32.
For reference, I’m usually a plus size 28, apple-shaped, and have a larger lower abdomen. I am 5’10 with a long torso and short legs.
Eloquii is starting to release some of their styles in sizes 30/32, and this was one of them. I was worried that the dress would be too tight in the lower abdomen or hips, so I sized up and ordered this dress in that size to mitigate that potential.
The dress is a fantastic material – it’s not a super stretchy open knit sweater. It is a tightly woven, thick (but not too thick) material with good bounce. It felt very luxurious.
It has a full button placket, so you can wear it open like a cardigan or layer it and add a belt – there are so many options. I could have ordered my usual size in this one, but overall I was happy so I kept the dress.
