Long term lover of 17 Sundays reporting for duty! And if I ever wear tights or stockings, Sonsee are my brand. So when the two powerhouses decided to join forces and give you a chance to WIN an entire outfit (my dress, bomber and tights!) for their Winter Giveaway, I knew I wanted in. Because if I know you guys, and I feel like I do, I know you LOVE giveaways.
I mean, who wouldn’t want this dress/bomber/tights combo?
For those looking for sizing advice, I’m sitting around a 24 at the moment. I’m wearing the 22 in the floral bomber and even with my broad shoulders, it fits well. It is snug when I zip it up over things, it kind of gets a cropped look to it. But I don’t zip jackets like this often, so I’d rather it was a little snug, rather than the other way. Make sense?
I’m wearing the 26 in the floral wedge dress. Now, the ladies who fit the larger side of things, don’t panic. It’s not about fit, even though the material has no stretch (a little give, but no stretch). As you can see from the photos there is loads of room in there. The length is good, even with the split in the back, so I’m glad I have the larger size even if it wasn’t necessary.
But wait, there’s more!
Short ladies or if you’re borderline on a size, you won’t need to size up, in my opinion, but as with most of the dresses in this style, if you’re big in the backside, make sure you check the sizing chart, unless you can get it down over, you’re never going to get into the largest part of the dress. Got it? Good.
Now, the tights. So I’m a pretty standard 24 and I’m 179cm tall. So, I need a decent amount of room in tights. I’m wearing the Opaque 100 denier full tights in black, in size Stunning (22/24). The short version is that the whole point of these tights is that it gives us ladies with more belly and width at our waist, thighs and legs, more room for good coverage. It’s got some magic stretch going on in there so this style is such a win! Easy to wear and comfortable.
In order to win the competition, users must like both @17_Sundays and @sonsee_woman (on the platform they’re entering – Facebook for this entry), and comment on the posts in response to the question “Where would you wear this outfit”.

I can already see this as a Friday work outfit…taking me straight from my desk to the pub with a glass of red in my hand no worries at all!! 😀
So good! Perfect for that.
I’d wear this everywhere! How gorgeous!!
It’s a great combo!
I would love this outfit perfect for all the family birthdays in July we have to celebrate including my own i would prefer to be jumping and drinking out somewhere in this than in a hospital gown like last birthday so have some serious making up to do for last year and would love a fabulous stylish and warm outfit for
winter birthday celebrations.
Ahhh, that’s us in December (of all months!). Haha.
It might not be very glam, but I’d wear this to our local school fete, I’d be the most fab person there though!
Yaaaas! That would totally work. 🙂
I’d wear this outfit to work with the hope that 17Sundays could turn a glum day into a glam occasion!
And it totally would!
I would love to wear this to the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers….I think it would be perfect and it might even take put a ribbon 🙂
Haha! This is the best. SO GOOD. 🙂
To cirque du soleil Toruk for my upcoming birthday!
Happy upcoming birthday!! 🙂
Date night with my hubby xxxx
id wear the outfit to The Pink Floyd Experience in July. My mum will be up from Sydney, kids will be on hols and i’ll be rockin out in my brand new outfit xx
It does TOTALLY need a rock star moment.
I would wear this to work! I’ve recently moved from Townsville to Canberra for my first “office job” after 14 years in a lab. Moving is expensive, so my wardrobe has relied on hand me downs from my sister! I’d love to have a whole outfit that is mine to help me through my first Canberra winter brrrrrrrr…..
Ugh, moving is the worst! All the best with your relocate. 😀
This chick from the bush is headed to Sydney to celebrate a milestone birthday with my mum. This outfit would be awesome for both her birthday and surprising my travel companion (Miss 11) with tickets to My Fair Lady! Always feel a bit out of my depth style-wise when I head there.
Happy milestone birthday! And enjoy the show, I hear it’s fantastic.
This looks like the perfect “Sunday brunch at Noosa that turns into a long day and then dinner by the river” outfit. Great for going out and looking good for the long haul.
Hello, yaaaaas! For sure.
I’d probably wear it everywhere!
Except bed….All going well 🙂
My sisters graduation party.
Perfect! Good luck. 🙂
My God-kids birthdays are coming up and this would be the perfect outfit for any outdoor party, looks absolutely gorgeous yet comfy and easy to move around.
It’s super comfy, perfect for this sort of event. Good luck!
My daughter’s Grade 12 formal is coming up in July, and I have nothing to wear when I watch her walk the red carpet!
Oh I love this! Good luck Lauren. 😀
“The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go” Dr Seuss
So I guess I would wear this everywhere but especially with a book & glass of wine
Love this Might Maz! Great answer. Good luck. x
I would wear it to jazz fest coming up!
Ooooo, that sounds like fun!
I’d wear it to an upcoming Farmers conference I’m heading to (as a Farmers wife *represent*).
Love looking a bit flash at conferences and always get super compliments on 17Sundays gear. And being in the middle of winter, got to keep warm with some sensational Sonsee stockings: finding stockings that actually fit well has been so awesome.
Haha. This is me EXACTLY! Anytime I go to a conference I always pull out my 17 Sundays gear. Good luck. 🙂
This outfit would be perfect for my next lot of parent teacher interviews (I’m a teacher).
It would be comfortable enough for when I am sitting yet still professional for meeting parents.
It’s absolutely that. Comfy and profesh! Good luck.
I would wear this awesome outfit from my favourite Melbourne brand to my next outing to the theatre for Book of Mormon and then dinner afterwards!
Now that’s a plan! You’re making me miss Melbourne.
Myself and 3 girlfriends are having a whole weekend away in Melbourne in August! So exceited. Just the 3 ofmus. No hubbys. No kids. I would loooove this outfit to wear to dinner on the Saturday night and then the jacket and boots with jeans on the Sunday. Its a gorgeous outfit!
Oooooo, FUN! I love good girls weekend. Good luck. 🙂
I would wear this outfit out to dinner with the girls! I’m having trouble at the moment finding clothes that suit me that are not for super young girls or Nannas, I’m in love with this outfit 😍
Ahhh yes, that can be a struggle. This is perfect. The print is so versatile separately or together!
To my next pap smear – at least then I would feel pretty while doing something completely un-pretty…… well, that and then onto the cafe afterwards when I buy myself lunch for congratulating myself on actually getting it done. (Bi-annual tradition)
HA! Yaaaas. Great plan and such a great idea. Important to train ourselves into getting these tests done and making them more palatable. 😉
I would wear this EVERYWHERE!!!! I love the florals. I love wearing tights and ankle boots. Love ❤️
It’s pretty comfy, you totally could. Haha.
I love everything about this outfit. I think it’d be great for a date night/day with the husband. It’ll be our anniversary soon. We love going to the museum to celebrate and it’d be cute there and out to dinner.
Thank you Meghan! Happy anniversary (for later) and I’ll keep my fingers crossed for you.
Wow what to say here goes
I would wear this to the cocktails for cancer cocktail party I’m going to in August. I’m going to have to shop online regardless as tassie doesn’t do a lot of big girl clothes. I can hold out shopping until this competitive closes. Hook a sister up make my life easier! Please
Haha. Love it. Stick with me, lady, I’ll hook you up in terms of online stores. Good luck!
I would love to wear this to a friend’s winter 50th
Sounds perfect Karen!
Thanks Kathy! I love the combination of the two floral prints, so fun. Good luck.
Wow…Its a power girl statement while looking feminine. I reckon its the perfect outfit to wear on my first date with a gorgeous guy. Wish me luck on both fronts girls…#winningeitherway.
It is, right? I love this combination. Wishing you ALL the good luck, lady!
Awesome outfit. Thank you for this great prize xxx
Don’t forget to let us know where you’d wear it Joanne. 😉
