I'm slim thicc and did a huge Primark winter haul – I tried the viral leather dress & can fit into a size 10, I'm shook | The Sun

A SLIM thicc fashionista has been left stunned after trying a viral leather dress – because a size 10 fitted her curvy hips.

Carla Kent, 27, is a self-professed Primark addict and regularly delights her 37,000 TikTok followers (@carlakentx) with shopping hauls.

After a recent trip to her favourite shop, the makeup artist, from Glasgow, said: "Do you see how many bags are down there [on the floor]?

"We've got a real problem. I've got four of the normal bags and one of the big daddy bags that they give you when you've clearly got a shopping addiction.

"Yeah, I went to Primark. This was my big autumn winter shop, so this explains the five bags."

Despite her love for the bargain store, Carla can sometimes struggle to find clothes to suit her flawless hourglass shape – even having to buy jeans in a size 16 for her hips, and getting the waist taken in.

But she was over the moon after finding a sold-out dress in store which fit despite not being in her size.

She said: "Guys, wait for this. I'm so excited for this. I got the viral black leather bandeau dress.

"Like, hello, look how stunning is that?

"And I mean, I'm shook. Size 10. I ain't a size 10 but the size 10 fits me because it's very stretchy and for some reason it does go over the hips.

"So I ain't complaining. I'm just, I'm in shock."

Describing their £18 faux leather strapless midi dress – which is available as a click and collect item on the website – Primark bosses said: "Make a statement in this head-turning dress."

They added: "Crafted with a sleek faux leather construction, this dress was designed to flatter your figure and accentuate your curves, making you feel like a true style icon.

"The tailored fit in a midi length strikes the perfect balance of elegance and edge, suitable for a variety of occasions, from dinner parties and nights out to formal events.

"Why not pair it with heels and statement accessories for a jaw-dropping look that is sure to turn heads?"

Unloading her many shopping bags, Carla also picked up four jumpers, three cardigan, £11 black flared joggers, gym tops and a teddy fleece bag in her epic haul.

She bagged a "cute" underwear set too, as well as earrings, three pairs of £15 pyjamas, socks, bobbles, a sleep shirt and gloves.

And she even got a few items from the new Rita Ora x Primark collection including a matching mesh bodysuit and leggings which she admitted was "quite a risky outfit".

"But I'm all about that", she added.

Rounding off her haul, Carla bought a pair of Ugg and Birkenstock dupe slippers which she revealed she plans to wear out to work or to grab a coffee.

She said: "They're really, really cheap, so even if you ruin them in the winter you really don't even care.

But her favourite footwear purchase was a pair of £18 tan cowboy boots which the curvy fashionista hailed as perfect for her big calf girlies. 

"If you have big calfs, big chunky legs like me, you never get boots to fit us", she said.

"But these bad boys, I tried these on yesterday and they are a size 5.

"I still have to go up a size when I get boots from Primark, even though I'm size 4 but these are a dream.

"They had these in loads of different colours and yeah, they actually are really flattering on your leg."

And despite being a makeup artist, Carla refrained from buying any cosmetics.

"Can you believe that out of all that I did not buy one beauty product", she said.

"That's just shocking."

After sharing her haul, Carla joked: "This should do me all winter but no doubt I'll be back next week."

Her clip has racked up more than 130,000 views with her fellow fashion fans loving her buys.

One gushed: "Right you have made me want to go to Primark today."

A second wrote: "Love your Primark hauls Carla."

A third added: "Really want to get that leather dress."

A fourth said: "I can't find that dress anywhere."

Meanwhile, a fifth insisted: "I’m running to Primark really soon."

TV fans may recognise influencer Carla from reality show The Agency: Unfiltered, which is set to return for a second season on BBC Scotland.

The new series will once again follow Aquarius Creative, Scotland's largest influencer agency, and its founders, Kirsten Cameron and Amy Moore as they tackle their business and the dramas that come with it.
