Feeling myself in this amazing Jasmin set from @tuttirougelingerie sister range Roguette. Affordable stylish and the fit is spot on. Felt absolutely incredible and the set is perfect for every day but adding a little bit of sexy to make you feel confident for the day ahead. If you're anything like me wearing matching underqear automatically lifts my mood and sets me right for the day • • • • • • • • • • #postitives #plusfashion #plussize #bbw #london #psblogger #curves #plus #thisisplus #lblogger #honourmycurves #honormycurves #effyourbeautystandards #effyourbodystandards #bodypositive #justmegorgeous #selflovebringsbeauty #curseofcurves #curvesfordays #iamsimplybeautiful #styleadvice #sexystateofmind #theconfidencecorner #bloggerstyle #volup2isdiversity #tuttirogue #roguette #lingerie #tuttiroguelingerie
