Merishka had always been a heavy-set girl. As a child, she was always the tallest in her class. As an adolescent, she blossomed much earlier than her classmates and friends. And now, as a grown-up young woman, she usually is the one standing in the last row of her office photographs. This doesn’t bother her, as Merishka is a confident, independent and intelligent woman, and knows that there are all types of people in the world, with different body shapes and she is merely one of them. What does bother her though is the struggle she has to go through to find well-fitting clothes for her “larger than usual frame” and body type.

She hates the fact the she has to look in the men’s section to find a decent t shirt that will fit her comfortably. Finding a top for herself is a huge exercise in itself, and a perfect fitting shirt dress – her favourite style of dress – is almost a dream.

 At times, her luck comes through and she finds “nice clothes” in the plus size sections, but she finds the designs and the cuts so limiting. And to her dismay, they usually fall on her like a big, misshapen sack!

MERAKI’S INDIGO LYOCELL BOXY TOP – ONE SIZE

Take for instance this indigo boxy top. It is especially designed in a wide, comfort fit to ensure that it fits one and all. It is specially cut in such a way that the top takes the shape of your body and drapes itself beautifully to suit your shape.

A favourite silhouette of ours for the plus size shirt dress is the “cocoon shape”. This shape allows for a lot of room around the waist and hip areas and at the same time, it provides for a body skimming look. The cocoon shape adds a swing to your steps as it swishes with the rhythm of your body.
