Now that Christmas is over and we are a few weeks into the New Year, it’s time to start putting those ‘New Year, New Me’ resolutions in place. One way to create a ‘New You’ is by refreshing your work wardrobe. Having new clothes to wear to work can make going to work seem less like Groundhog Day while giving you more motivation to excel and maybe even go for that promotion.

Our range is designed so you can mix and match our basics with our limited edition pieces, making it super easy to create a new wardrobe. Our clothes are easy to wear and fashionable, while still being comfortable.

Oriental Layered Shirt – a ¾ sleeve layered shirt featuring a round vee neck with split detail at sleeve.

Stand out from your colleagues in this vibrant range of tops. Red looks great with all hair types and is a strong, bold colour to add to your wardrobe.

Basics

Narrow Leg Knit Pant – is a simple pull on stretch pant in a skinny leg cut to give a longer silhouette.

Perfect Pant – is a straight leg pant with elastic enclosed waistband with front zip and button, featuring side pockets with button.

Both of these pants can be worn in a corporate office environment, while still being super comfortable for sitting in front of a computer all day.

Azzure Blue

Limited Edition

According to colour psychology, blue is a colour of trust, honesty and loyalty. It reduces stress, creating a sense of calmness, relaxation and order. Blue is considered to be a safe and non-threatening color, and the most universally liked of all colours. Add this colour to your work wardrobe to reap the benefits of this beautiful colour.

Basics

Village Pocket Pant – a narrow leg pant featuring elastic waist and side pockets.

These pants are a great option as we move into Autumn. They come in black, white, taupe and navy and go with almost anything! The pockets give them a slightly dressier look, making them a good option for the office.

Geo Black

Limited Edition

Geo Striped Top – a short sleeve round neck top featuring angled front detail panels.

Geo Hanky Hem Shirt – a cuffed long sleeve shirt with hanky hem, collar, tab with buttons and side slits.

We love the flattering style of the Geo Striped Top, it comes in at the waist to give you some shape, while still covering everything it needs to. It is also really versatile as it can be worn with pants or a skirt. The Geo Hanky Hem Shirt will become your favourite shirt; it is comfortable but also super stylish.

Basics

Beachside Skirt – an elastic waist skirt featuring a narrow hem and back pleat.

The Village Crop – an elastic waist pull on crop pant.

This skirt is a wardrobe staple. It will match with almost any of our tops and looks stylish and chic. With its elastic waist, it is another great option for those who work in an office environment and sit down for most of the day.

Geo Spot

Limited Edition

Geo Hanky Hem – a short sleeve round neck hanky hem tunic with a keyhole feature and a gathered neck.

We can’t decide which colour we like more, so we’re buying both! This top will work with both long and short pants as well as skirts. It is comfortable, stylish and flattering – is this the perfect top?

Basics

Perfect Pant – is a straight leg pant with elastic enclosed waistband with front zip and button, featuring side pockets with button.

The Village Crop – an elastic waist pull on crop pant.

Keep your outfit looking fresh with either of these pants in crisp white. They come in other colours, but we think white is a great option for this time of the year.

We live in a world filled with smartphones, social media, digital media, traditional media and access to any information we need at our fingertips.

It is a world where regular girls are becoming overnight Instagram celebrities, where there are apps that help you Photoshop your images before you post them on social media and where every part of a woman’s body can be picked apart and judged by others.

At My Size we believe in being ‘body positive’. We believe that we are all part of the ‘sisterhood’ and should be looking out for each other, instead of trying to bring each other down. Being body positive is all about being comfortable in your own skin, no matter what size you are.

2015 was an exciting year for the plus-size industry. Plus-size models became more well known, they started speaking out about their feelings about being labeled as ‘plus-size’ and most importantly, they became sexy.

To celebrate the rise of the plus-size model and our desire for all women to feel ‘body positive’, we have compiled a short list of beautiful Australian women who we believe are the perfect example of being ‘body positive’.

Bonnie Sveen

Bonnie plays Ricky Sharpe on Home and Away and has quickly made a name for herself as someone young girls can look up to. In 2014, when she won a Logie for Most Popular New Talent, Bonnie ended her acceptance speech by saying ‘It says something really progressive about Australia and the commercial industry that viewers have so warmly embraced such a natural and healthy young woman on their screens.’

She was absolutely right. For years, the young stars of Australian TV have been model-thin and overly made-up. Bonnie’s natural and healthy look is a perfect example of being body positive. She shows us that you don’t need make up and designer clothes to be successful on Australian TV.

Deborah Mailman

She became a household name when we met her as Kelly on The Secret Life of Us. Since then, Deborah Mailman has continued to become one of Australia’s most popular actors.

In 2010, Deborah said body image has accompanied her from her childhood until now. ”If I look at the one thorn that is in my side, of all my life, it is my weight,” she said.

Even with this massive insecurity, Deborah continues to be successful while not giving in to the industry norm of being stick thin and unhealthy. We love Deborah’s sense of style and ability to dress perfectly for her size.

Fiona Falkiner

Since competing in the first season of The Biggest Loser, Fiona has come a long way. She is a successful international plus-size model, hosted the most recent season of The Biggest Loser Families and just did a very sexy photo shoot for the cover of Maxim magazine.

Scrolling through her Instagram feed is almost addictive; it is filled with pictures of her working out, eating, socialising, modeling and just being comfortable in her size 16 body.

She is 14 kilos heavier now than when she finished filming The Biggest Loser in 2006, however she has recently come out saying that she is actually happier now than she was when she was ‘skinnier’. This is a perfect example of a beautiful young woman who is body positive. You can be beautiful and successful at any size.

Samantha Armytage

Since joining David Koch as the co-host of Sunrise is 2013, Samantha Armytage has scored herself a great fan base and loyal following. However, her weight has always been a popular topic of discussion.

In an interview with The Australian Women’s Weekly, Sam said “It is something people talk about and what I look like resonates with other women. I don’t describe myself as curvy. I’d describe myself as quite strong and healthy, nothing terribly flash. Take me as I am.

Sam has changed the stereotype of journalists and news presenters from often scarily thin, to healthy and natural.
