If Plus Size Clothing wasn’t already hard enough to find, Plus Size Snow Clothing really takes it to the next level and if you follow me on Snap or IG (@thisisashrose) it was pretty hard to miss that i spent the long weekend among a few snowflakes on Mt Buller.
When i say likely, i mean i am fairly certain my 47947343348098 snaps of every piece of snow i could locate would have made it pretty clear. Having never seen real snow, i guess you could say i was just a little excited. But also keeping a note in the back of my mind that as it was opening weekend, there was a rather large chance it wouldn’t even be snowing!
Of course after confirming the trip my next stop was to organize my snow clothes. Whether it be the lack of results popping up when i googled ‘Plus Size Ski Hire’ (would i get up there and not even be able to hire snow gear?) or perhaps the innate fear about sizing as snow gear is notoriously small, but I decided purchasing my own jacket and pants was smarter.
As luck would have it, as we were eating lunch in the local pub, i did end up experiencing my first sighting of real life natural snow fall. Needless to say after staring longingly outside at the falling snow, with a dose of puppy dog eyes, we all headed out into the cold for a bit of snow play!
With both pieces being black, i know they will come in very handy throughout winter even when i am not at the snow. However, if your are not from Melbourne and bright is more your style the jacket also comes in a rainbow of colors here.
The rest of the trip i spent in jeans, long sleeve cotton tops, my khaki faux fur trim anorak and these camel boots that i picked up at Spendless Shoes since i couldn’t quite afford Timberlands. I was a little worried about having the synthetic fabric and sole wading through the snow, but safe to say these turned out to be a great option, as i didn’t slip (or even slide a little) once and have since inspected the shoes and noted no water damage, although this isn’t to say it’s not possible as they are not leather, but i happily admit that i am not exactly careful with my possessions – so they certainly received a good test run!
