Move Over M & S

Move Over M & S

Did you hear about those MOM jeans at M&S that sold out everywhere before anyone could get their hands on them?

Well honestly I think I’ve found a better pair.

You’ll all know that I’ve been a big fan of Bodega fashion boutique in the Suffolks in Cheltenham for ages. But this season Sarah-Jane and her amazing team have really upped their game. The selection of stock is vast, great quality, really wearable and also perfect for any of you (like me) who have a few (ok a lot of) lumps and bumps they’d rather hide away.

I’m really not body confident but what I am is committed to enjoying my days and if that means accepting the body I’ve got (and am not working very hard to maintain) then that’s ok. But as well as body positivity there’s another amazing tool to help you look like a million dollars (even if everyone else notices it and you don’t) – the Bodega jeans.

I’d seen a few people in them and just assumed that you needed to be 5 ft 8 and a size 10 to pull them off. Then I tried a pair on. They are quite literally the most comfortable thing you’ve ever worn. There is a twist in the seam (that’s probably not quite the correct fashion terminology) that means they really flatter the leg and the details around the fly (button and zip – I know! Crazy!) is amazing. I even like my bum in these jeans. They don’t fall down and teamed with a tucked in vest my muffin top is kept firmly out of site.

This is not an endorsed blog post. Sarah-Jane is a MumBoss but I would gladly champion this brand every day of the week. There’s no occasion that Bodega can’t sort you out for and if you’ve put off going in because you’re worried it’s a bit high end… I have two options for you…

  1. Just do it – the team there are honestly so kind and really know how to help you make the best of your bod without patronising you or making you feel frumpy. There’s a price point for all and you can go in with your mum (who will also love it) or your friends and you’ll be really looked after. Tell the divine Scottish Carol I sent you!
  2. Just shop online! All of Bodega’s looks can now be bought from anywhere and shipped directly to you. But hurry – these jeans won’t hang about.
