Itâ€™s no secret Iâ€™m a tiki lover. Thereâ€™s something about the whole tiki look that just gives me that happy feeling inside. As well as a love of tiki, I love pieces that are versatile. Nothing makes me happier than an outfit I can wear styled different ways to create different looks.Â Pieces that seem to want to fight versatile styling tend to make me sad so I was thrilled that I found this skirt to be such a winner.Â For me, the V2 wiggle skirt in leopard from Lady K Loves definitely ticked all those boxes!
The V2 wiggle skirt is wiggle style made by Lady K Loves
. Available in black, leopard, jade and brandy wine there is a colour in this skirt to suit any gal. With their design based on their killer cigarette pants these skirts feature a fitted waist and knee as well as a longer length, something that is truer to an actual 1950â€™s wiggle skirt. A back zip and button make for easy closure and wear as well as a slight back slit for ease of walking and a bit of a breeze. This skirt is beautifully made, comfortable to wear and killer to style.
As I mentioned in my last post about Lady K Loves
, one reason theyâ€™re currently one of my favourite brands is their amazing fit. Theyâ€™re a brand that fit my smaller waist and bigger hips without shapewear (I went sans foundations for this review too!) which in the coming summer months I know Iâ€™ll be extremely grateful for! Its already proving that its going to be a particularly humid one here in Sydney Australia and some days its simply too
humid to even think of wearing my foundations (which is definitely making me sad). Iâ€™m wearing this killer skirt in a size Large! While it was initially snug it did stretch out a bit after a wear and the fabric breathes well.
Since I am talking about a wiggle skirt, which can be a bit of a gamble for thigher thighed gals during the warmer months. Previously as I wasnâ€™t walking all that much it wasnâ€™t something Iâ€™d have to consider but since moving its become something Iâ€™ve really had to think about so I thought Iâ€™d stop here and give a few pointers on ways I like to help prevent thigh rubbing and other options Iâ€™ve read that are really good!
The first option of course is to put a physical barrier between your thighs. This can be done a variety of different ways.
1.Â Â Â Â Â Â You could wear bike shorts (something Iâ€™m known to do when Iâ€™m walking to or from the station in looser skirt)
2.Â Â Â Â Â Â
You can wear a band around your thigh such as a Bandelette
. These have had good reviews from what Iâ€™ve seen and Iâ€™m actually hoping to give them a go soon
3.Â Â Â Â Â Â
A pair of long legged â€˜underwearâ€™ such as the functional anti-chaff knickers from the Big tights company
or the cute lace shorties (and matching tops) of Undersummers
4.Â Â Â Â Â Â
One of my favourite options in cooler months is to wear a Panty girdle, such as Rago #6207
or the #6201
. Both not only smooth your figure but the barrier helps prevent thigh rub
One of the other options that Iâ€™ve read about is Body Glide anti chaffing balm. Iâ€™ve been hearing the praises of this sung a lot online and its definitely something I want to give a go!
Iâ€™m also loving the versatility of this fun skirt. So far Iâ€™ve worn it with a few different tops and it just goes with so much! Comfortable and versatile! Two of my biggest things I look for when picking items for my wardrobe!
The V2 skirt retails forÂ Â£45.00/$75.51AUD with international shipping!Â + shipping and they do post worldwide! So no matter where you are you can haveÂ
I hope youâ€™ve all enjoyed this post and Iâ€™ve got more gorgeous goodies from Lady K Loves coming your way in December and in the new year too!
Iâ€™m also super excited to say some changes are going to mean Iâ€™ll be able to bring you all better blogs in 2017, as Iâ€™ll have access to transport on my shoot days again!
Til next time darlings!
