Fashion Review: Empire Line Tunic from Boden
Her usual look—low-slung jeans and clever T-shirts—wasn’t working anymore. It wasn’t just that her midsection was expanding at an astonishing rate, obliterating her waist. It was also that, approaching forty, she was occasionally seared by the white-hot suspicion that she was no longer dressing her age. She imagined a future of kaftans. She considered vests, and she shuddered. Then she saw the Empire Line Tunic, and she thought, “Maybe”.
When her Boden order arrived in the mail, she rushed upstairs to her room before she opened it. The fabric felt like cool water as she tried on the tunic, and she was pleased to see that it draped nicely without being heavy. The empire bodice was generously cut —it accommodated breasts that had nursed a child—while the skirted graced her curves without being clingy.
She felt good about the way she looked, for the first time in awhile.
