I love it! Well I got to admit I’ve definitely had my eye on some maternity pieces.. they are just so flattering - hahaaa! :-P And PS I love ASOS. Have you checked out their curve section? Amazing! And I love how you got it altered! Catering the clothes to your body instead of the other way around is definitely the way to go. :)
Anyway, I don’t necessarily like to shun out any clothes. I’m not a fan of all the rules out there for curvy girls, because what-the-heck! we can look great in horizontal stripes, bright colors, etc. The only thing I stay away from are those tops that were popular a few years ago where they are smallest right under the breasts and flare out form there. It screams maternity… even on a size 2!
