Race season is upon us, people.
It’s time to don a frock, pop on a fancy fascinator, and hope to Holy Oprah no one notices how much you’re wobbling in your new heels.
Finding plus-size racewear that’s super cute and doesn’t cost half your paycheck is not an easy feat, so we’ve rounded up some of the best finds from our favourite Aussie retailers.
